Looking for a little romantic adventure? Jump on the scooter and explore some of Bali’s hidden, picture-perfect beaches.
1. Green Bowl Beach
Finding this secret gem is not easy, but trust me, it will be worth the effort. After you’ve paid your IDR 2,000 entrance fee, you’re in for a serious cardio workout heading down the concrete steps until you reach the beach. The result – your very own private stretch of sand with world-class surf.
2. Balangan Beach
Bordered by two cliffs, the skirt of Balangan beach stretches for about 1km. This also means that there are great swells for surfers. An amazing mixture of white and black sands on some spots of the beach, the unique green and dark brown musty stone texture on the shore, and the pond-like hollow spaces filled with clear water (and sometimes with little fish), are among the features you can expect to find in this paradise.
3. Geger Beach
Geger Beach is famous for its seaweed. It’s worth peeking in on one of the many seaweed farms nearby after frolicking about in the crystal clear waters.
4. Nyang Nyang Beach
Another gem requiring some physical activity to reach, but totally worth it. Follow the dirt track close to Uluwatu Temple and keep a lookout for a sign saying “Nyang Nyang Surfing Beach” before alighting the flight of 500 steps that finally open up to the beach. This beach has amazing photo spots.
5. Bias Tugal Beach
Bias Tugal Beach is a secret white-sand beach with child-friendly waters perfect for swimming and snorkelling the picturesque coral reefs.
If you’re tired of the traffic on the island, these beachfront villas won’t disappoint you. All you need to do is walk!
