As a tourist island, the beaches in Bali are countless. Bali is not just Kuta Beach, which is really famous for decades! Especially if you add small islands around Bali such as Nusa Ceningan, and Nusa Lembongan. There are so many beaches in Bali that are very beautiful and really worth visiting.
Since most beaches on the island of Bali have great waves and waves, this does not make them ideal for snorkeling. However, if you travel east of the island to Padangbai, you will find three beaches with white paradise sand and calm and clear water. This quiet and sleepy fishing village doesn’t attract so many visitors, meaning the beaches are often quiet and peaceful. Bloo Lagoon Beach, located near the eco-resort Bloo Lagoon just up the hill to the left, has the best snorkeling, with calm clear waters, scattered rocks, and coral. Among the marine life, you can spot Napolean wrasse, reef sharks, stonefish, morays, rays, squid, octopus, and blue ribbon eels. There is also a beautiful secluded white sand beach on a hill to the right of town, which is lined with palm trees and is the closest thing to a tropical island paradise.
If you are looking for a beach full of beautiful people, with lots of bars and restaurants and activities, then Seminyak is the beach for you. While the long sandy beach isn’t quite as beautiful as some of the other beaches on the island, it is great for people-watching, attracting hundreds of tourists seeking some fun in the sun. Seminyak Beach is an extension of Kuta Beach and is a flat, dense stretch of sand with rolling waves perfect for learning to surf or playing boogie board. You can lie on a sunbed with Bintang or if you’re feeling a little more energetic, play a game of bat and ball. Seminyak Beach has one of the best sunset views, so if you can afford it, enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset from Ku De Ta, the world-famous Balinese bar.
Few backpackers have heard of this beach, but Balangan, south of the island past Jimbaran, is one of the best places to relax and take your worries away. This sandy beach is lined with palm trees and is also a great place for skilled surfers, with glass-like waves rolling over the coral reefs. You can relax on the sun loungers in front of one of the beach huts with banana milkshakes and views of the waves, or take a dip in one of the many natural rock pools. At low tide, you can stroll over the reef to get a closer look at the surfers in action. Balangan is a peaceful tropical beach that will make you feel like you are a million miles away from reality.
Uluwatu, at the southern tip of Bali, is famous for its temples perched dramatically on a cliff. Tourists flock to Uluwatu to see hordes of monkeys scurrying around the temple complex, and watch traditional dance performances at sunset. But Uluwatu is also Bali’s most popular spot for experienced surfers, offering perfect waves during the high season when the waves are good. Suluban Beach is sheltered by steep cliffs, so on a windy day, it’s perfect if you want to avoid getting sand in your eyes. On the cliff are several stalls serving traditional Indonesian food such as Nasi Goreng and banana pancakes, as well as several ding workshops and shops selling surf clothes. Sit back and enjoy the incredible views with a lunch stand or head down the steep stairs to the shingle beach where you’ll find caves and cool rock pools.
