Thinking beaches? Think Bali!
The salty air, the crystal clear water, the bewildering aura of the beaches in Bali is what makes it so peculiar. Sandy and I visited a lot of beaches in Bali and there ain’t one which failed to surprise us. From the moment we landed in Bali to the moment we visited Kelingking beach, we couldn’t help but fall in love. The best part about beaches in Bali is that it provides a safe haven for those looking for peace and tranquility to get away from their mundane life.
Let me take you guys through 11 of the best beaches in Bali that Sandy and I visited on our last trip.
Hopefully, these might help you too!
Sanur beach greets you with super gorgeous Jukung fishing boats! Sanur’s friendly and serene aura has been and continues to attract tourists from all over the world. We were extremely mesmerised by the sunset sky. It was the most magical moment we experienced in Bali. I can assure you, just being at Sanur beach is worth your time, but if you’re still looking for activities then you can hire bicycles to go around the beach. This beach in Bali is also know for its underwater activities.
PADANG PADANG BEACH
You may remember Padang Padang from Julia Roberts movie – Eat, Pray, Love. Yep, it’s the same beach. Famously known as the Surfer’s Paradise, Padang Padang is abuzz with tourists taking their surfboards out on an adventure. Apart from surfing, travellers are also seen relaxing at this tiny beach indulging in local beach food and Bintang.
This exceptionally gorgeous beach is located on one of Bali’s prettiest Island – Nusa Penida. Famous after it’s exquisite shape and the view, KelingKing beach proudly sits on every travellers bucket list.
Getting down to the beach is one hell of a task and must be attempted only if you have a brave heart. Climbing off the Kelingking beach is definitely on my bucket-list.
Famously known as the ‘Sunset Beach’, Kuta is one of the prettiest beaches of Bali.
Once you get past the huge shopping complex, you will be greeted by the big blue sea. Travellers find Kuta beach to be a perfect spot to indulge in shopping & watch the sunset. The variety of delicious cuisines to choose from will definitely leave you baffled.
The Broken Beach is one of the most picturesque beaches of Bali in Nusa Penida. Although driving to the beach is a nerve-wrecking task, but the tranquility from atop is worth every skipped heart beat.
After all the adventure at the broken beach, if you’re lucky enough; you might get a pretty sight of the dolphins.
GREEN BOWL BEACH
Tucked away into a cliff in the village of Ungasan, this beach works as the perfect relaxant from the daily hustle and bustle of mundane living. Famous for surfing, tourists also wallow into snorkeling during low tides. This beach has been blessed with two limestone caves that let you lounge after the fun activities.
Known for its happening nightlife, this beach is home to the most opulent brands and resorts. Although a bit heavy on your pocket, this is the ‘it place’ for the party animal in you.
Activities like paragliding make this beach even more exciting for travelers. Moreover there’re cooking classes too for travelers keen on learning how to cook Balinese. Overall, Seminyak Beach in Bali keeps you on your toes.
TANAH LOT BEACH
Named after the well-known Hindu Tanah Lot Temple which is surrounded by sea water, this beach is famous for its serenity.
You might see a few travelers treat themselves of surfing but the Tanah Lot beach mostly attracts meditators due to its soothing and sacred ambience.
Melasti is one of the less populated beaches of Bali. It is a perfect destination to get away from the loud tourists. Melasti beach has clean blue waters that provide a beautiful swimming experience. Karma cafe will satiate your taste buds while the crystal blue water refreshes you. We indulged in delicious margarita pizza. It was one of the best evenings we spent in Bali.
It is amongst the most peculiar beaches of Bali. The Hidden Beach as the name suggests does not welcome you with a regular entrance. Visitors have to climb down a good amount of steps and then pass through a couple of caves to get to a view of the spectacular beach. Overshadowed by a hanging cliff, it might not serve well for sunbathers but these cliffs sure set you in the perfect mood for a bornfire party by the beach.
Jimbaran beach stretches on the Southwestern coast of Bali. This new found beach is particularly famous amongst surfers and hippies as the tender the correct amount of privacy. Jimbaran beach is famous for dinner by the sunset.
