Digital nomad hotspot 1: Penida Colada – Ped

My favourite place to work on Nusa Penida island is restaurant Penida Colada. This intimate restaurant serves vegan and vegetarian dishes. With the waves in the background, a nice breeze and relaxing music, this is a great coworking space for a few hours. Wi-Fi works well and you receive a service with a smile. A big plus the unlimited water so you can refill your glass and stay hydrated while working.

Penida Colada is not an official coworking space. So, it is not possible to work in silence or with large groups together. The food is delicious, especially the smoothie bowls and vegan curry are recommended! When you are done working and ready for a drink during sunset, this is also your place. Happy hour is between 4 pm and 6 pm! Have a cocktail and enjoy the beautiful skyline of Bali with her impressive volcanoes!

Digital nomad hotspot 3: Coco Penida – Ped

The brand-new restaurant Coco Penida is less than a hundred meters from Penida Colada. It is from the same owner as Secret Penida. From white umbrellas to cosy lights above the terrace. This beachfront hotspot is a good place to unwind, but it also is a work-friendly café!

There is a lot of shade and the music is not too loud. The tables (and chairs) are at a good height, so no problems with your back! The only thing missing here is Wi-Fi. Yes. You read that correctly! There is no Wi-Fi at this place. Great if you don’t need to be online or have a Wi-Fi hotspot with you. If you still need internet, go to one of the other addresses.

Please note: Coco Penida does not open until noon.

Food: 6/10, a bit disappointing, small portions and not much taste.
Coffee: 8/10, fine!
Air conditioning: no, but because you are by the sea there is always a nice breeze.

Digital nomad hotspot 4: The Ped Café – Ped

The Ped Café, as the name already suggests, is located in the middle of Ped. This colourful restaurant has a lot of seating areas (with sockets). Wi-Fi works well and the kitchen is fast and makes tasty dishes. We went for the avocado toast, nasi goreng (spicy) and pancakes. The latter was very tasty!

Digital nomad hotspot 5: The Sweet Spot (extra coworking place) – Ped

The Sweet Spot is a new restaurant in Nusa Penida island. This is also the only place on this list of coworking places on Nusa Penida island where there is air conditioning! Perfect for when you have to shine on your work during a hot day! Unfortunately, The Sweet Spot was closed during our time on Nusa Penida. That’s why we couldn’t try out this spot.
