I’ve swam here - This is a beach on Nusa Penida Indonesia. Im Australian and while we’re known for our beaches and are raised to be pretty aware of the dangers of the ocean, this beach pictured is by far the most difficult place I’ve ever swam. The beach falls off at an steep angle so the larger waves from the ocean don’t break until the very last minute and it’s extremely difficult to get out of the water due to the immense amount of water “sucking” you back out with each wave. It’s also about 2 hours trek down the side of a huge cliff on the other side of the main population centre of a fairly remote island. A guy drowned while I was there - we got him out but didn’t manage to revive him and after 3 hours of CPR (we knew he was gone but his distraught friends wouldn’t let us give up) the “paramedics” got down to the beach only to reveal it was just 4 guys and a body bag. I’ve stumbled upon this pic a few times and it’s remarkable how well it captures the power of the water on this beach. It’s immense and not to be messed with.


Fatcatdaisy

Oohh your description of it gives me the heebie jeebies

The girls i was travelling with had two motorbike crashes on the ride home from this day too. They were understandably distraught. Penida is incredible but wild - it’s Insta famous status can make people think it’s an entry level destination when it really isn’t.

Is this Kelingking Beach? I'm literally going there tomorrow! I'm excited to go, but I'll stay clear of the waves I guess..


BrunswickCityCouncil

It is. You can’t really steer clear of them, just make sure to stay near the coast and keep track of the oncoming waves to time your exit carefully. If you’ve swam in this kind of beach before you’ll be fine - it’s just this one’s Insta famous status that makes it particularly attractive to inexperienced swimmers.


sage_x3

I've been in some bigger waves, on the Australian east coast, but not this big and not this close to the beach.. Well be extra careful!


kwheels43

Are you alive


sage_x3

I am! I didn't get dragged out. The waves were quite high, but not like in this picture 😅


kwheels43

Ok good!!


GAAND_mein_DANDA

Wait this can't be real? How's the wave so large near the shore, shouldn't it fizzle off by then?


KingBlazeswastaken

This does happen in some places


kiwichick286

Nah, there are plenty of high energy beaches see East and west coasts of NZ.


ThisJokeSucks

NAHHHHHH!

Shore break. When there’s a steep bank you get this, normally at high tide.


Giant-Genitals

I got got by a shore break at gunamatta beach in Australia. Felt like several bags of concrete hitting me


JasperGrimpkin

Ouch!!


Giant-Genitals

That’s exactly what I said, sir


imyourservant

Garrapata, California has waves like that


manfacelad

I think this might be Kelingking beach on Nusa Penida island near Bali. I've been there and taken similar pictures - the wave shape, the closeness to shore, the colour. There is a huge t-rex shaped rocky peninsula that you scale down to get to the beach, and its steepness allows you to get pictures like this without a drone Google it and see what you think - it is an incredible place.


sage_x3

Oh if it is then I'll be going there tomorrow! I'm excited to go!

That place is insane.


Ellweiss

Looks like a zoomed in picture, and a tiny person added.


sumguysr

You might be used to carefully sculpted beaches with shallow inclines, and maybe even wave breakers.


monamikonami

Sharp rise in the seabed right next to shore perhaps? I’m just guessing though. 😊

Beach break. I lived on a beach like this. Not always this big, but always very harsh. We also had a lot of sharp volcanic rock so super dangerous if you over estimated your skill and underestimated the ocean. It was a pretty remote unpopulated beach and we had people break bones and drown every year there.


justsomeplainmeadows

Um, is that person about to die?


bit_drastic

He never learnt from King Cnut.

king cunt?

Actual photo of me the day after a holiday weekend getting hit with a crapload of work.


QuarterlyTurtle

That person is about to be pummeled by that wave


AstroGirlBunny

Love this photo!


Specialist-Lion-8135

Photoshop. If you look carefully you can see a line around the figure and shadow.


liddicoat1

Photos real, shes just not there but even if she was it would be fine


Specialist-Lion-8135

It’s a deceptive picture. As an artist, I’m ok with alterations, just not the lie of omission- that it was contrived.


Upper-Ad-2347

The photoshop is strong with this one


AcanthopterygiiFun16

It's not photoshopped it's a wave and a beach and a person


kwheels43

Zoom in to the person you can see the photoshop lines around them and the shadow


Sudden_Piccolo2171

Literally breath taking!
