This commercial jet is probably the most photographed one of the abandoned airplanes in Bali. It is located in a slightly hidden spot along Jalan Nusa Dua Selatan, a mere 5-minute drive from Pandawa beach. It lies on private property in the midst of a carved limestone hill. Rumour has it that it should be transformed into a cool hangout spot complete with a restaurant and a bar. Unfortunately, so far it only serves as a unique attraction and somewhere to take some pretty awesome selfies.
The abandoned plane is located near the southern coast of the Bukit Peninsula in Bali. It’s just off the Raya Nusa Dua Selatan Highway and only five minutes from the popular and picturesque Pandawa beach. In other words, it’s not exactly hidden away from the world.
Some locals say that the plane, which has no livery or notable insignia, was destined to be converted into a tourist-friendly restaurant. Apparently, however, the owner ran out of money and left his Boeing 737 to slowly rust surrounded by a shabby hut and a few shipping containers.
The plane has now become a tourist attraction in its own right. And, strangely, it’s not the only abandoned plane you can visit on the Indonesian island. About five miles north sits another abandoned Boeing 737, right next to a Dunkin’ Donuts.
Update June 2019: Possible future plans are in store for the aircraft, with it being re-orientated and located to the south of the quarry in mid-2018.
