White sand

Bali Beach Rating: 4.9

The beach is characterized by perfectly white sand, which was brought here to ennoble the territory and attract more tourists. But over time, the sand washed a little, so its current color is rather grayish than white. The coast is equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds, but the beach cannot be called fully equipped: it is not especially monitored for cleanliness.

The right side of the coast is rich in luxurious coral reefs: connoisseurs of quality diving can enjoy the beauty of the underwater world. The sea is calm enough, but periodically there are strong unrest. In principle, White sand is the only one on the East coast of Bali suitable for swimming in the generally accepted meaning. By the way, it is located away from the airport, so there will be no noise and many tourists here. Paradise and more. You can have a tasty snack in one of the inexpensive cafes located directly on the beach. They belong to the locals. By the way, cafe customers are provided with free sun loungers, umbrellas and towels. A chocolate factory and organic soap factory are nearby.

Note: there is no hotel infrastructure near the beach, so you can look here for a day by car from other areas of Bali.

Suitable for: for a comfortable beach holiday, swimming, diving

Jemeluk bay

Bali Beach Rating: 4.9

The beach "took refuge" in a cozy bay. This is an excellent place for swimming and comfortable sunbathing. One of the best Bali options for a quality beach holiday by the Pacific Ocean. The coast is covered with neat pebbles, the territory is compact, the waves are small, low tides too. Nearby there is a developed infrastructure: hotels, cafes, sporting goods and equipment rental, many shops and parking.

The coastline is perfectly clean - there is no debris, algae. The water in the ocean is absolutely clear. There are many colorful reefs: connoisseurs of quality diving can enjoy underwater beauty.

Suitable for: for a comfortable swim, beach holiday


Bali Beach Rating: 4.8

Delicate golden sand, magnificent picturesque views and no tourists - what could be better for a perfect holiday on the beach? Dreamland is a great place for a relaxing holiday in nature: here you can perfectly sunbathe and cut the waves on a surfboard. There are enough sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach.

Infrastructure near the coast is just developing. Nevertheless, near the territory of Dreamland there are many cafes and restaurants where you can eat inexpensively and tasty. Near the beach there is a small hotel where you can rent comfortable apartments and villas. It is convenient to get to Dreamland by car: the road from Kuta will take about half an hour.

Note: swimming in the ocean is undesirable, because it is quite dangerous and difficult due to the frequent and large waves that literally cover with your head.

Suitable for: surfing, a great place for a lazy vacation in the sand

Green bowl

Bali Beach Rating: 4.8

One of the wild beaches of Bali, whose charm is undeniable. Luxurious golden sand pleases a few visitors to the area. A narrow strip of shore is located directly under the cliff, and the descent to the beach leads along steep steps. This place was created by nature itself to relax from the tourist bustle, it is also ideal for surfing: connoisseurs use the Green Bowl waves to access the line up.

On the beach you can often find restless Balinese, who often scurry about on the coast, selling inexpensive food, tasty drinks and local souvenirs. During high tide, the beach is completely covered by water, so it becomes unavailable for visiting.

Note: the beach is not intended for swimming - in the coastal zone there is a breaking wave - the current can drag into the open ocean.

Suitable for: surfing

Gunung payung beach

Bali Beach Rating: 4.8

A little-known and uninhabited beach. Nevertheless, the construction of the first hotel and a golf club is already underway nearby. Not far from the coast there are several small cafes where you can have a tasty snack. The coastal strip is entirely golden velvet sand, the bottom is also sandy, the entrance to the water is gentle. Great place for swimming, suitable even for small children.

The beach is absolutely wild: this implies the complete absence of sunbeds, umbrellas, lifeguards and any varungs. At some distance from the water you can hide under the hills. There are also several small caves.

Suitable for: for privacy, comfortable bathing

Melasti beach

Bali Beach Rating: 4.7

This magical wild beach is located almost on the southernmost tip of the Bukit Peninsula. You can get to it by car. Surprising is the fact that the road to the beach was cut through the rocks. Almost on the ocean, not far from the cliffs are the amazing gates of Kori Anung - the entrance to the beach. The place surprises not only with the lack of people as such, but also of incredible beauty with a picture of pristine sea surface against the background of snow-white velvet sand and white stones.

Conventionally, Melasti beach is divided into several small parts, each of which can be reached on foot. The waves are small, the water is crystal clear. This is the best option for solitude away from civilization, a suitable place for meditation, yoga.

For whom: for privacy

Bias Tegul (Secret Beach)

Bali Beach Rating: 4.7

Secluded "secret" beach, completely hidden from prying tourist eyes, is ideal for a comfortable swim in the ocean and a relaxing vacation. This coast is located near the port of Padang Bai. You can get there only by going through a forest grove. Perfect soft sand of white color, clear clear water and "quiet" waves - this is what Bias Tegul is.

The beach is surrounded by mountains, so it is rarely windy here, but the water is a little cooler than on other beaches. On the beach there are several varung (small cafes with a straw roof), where Balinese cook for a few tourists (even during peak season).

Suitable for: the perfect place for swimming, relaxation

Seminyak beach

Bali Beach Rating: 4.7

A prestigious and peaceful place for a comfortable stay. The number of hotels on the coast is very large. The beach strip is quite wide, the waves are frequent. Here you can often find surfers, including beginners. Although swimming with comfort here is an impossible task, the ocean pleases with the purity of water and the absence of stones.

Nearby there are several souvenir shops, a golf course, an amazingly beautiful temple on the water. There is a small market with local food in front of the entrance to Seminyak beach. The coast is equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas. Every day the beach strip is thoroughly cleaned of debris.

Note: the beach is dangerous for swimming - red flags on the coast warn about this.

Suitable for: surfing, lazy holidays on the coast


Bali Beach Rating :: 4.6

This is one of Bali's most famous beaches. It is always crowded, noisy, fun. The coast is wide (length - 8 km), with incredibly beautiful golden sand. Water is perfectly clean, very warm. The beach is well equipped: tourists are offered many sun loungers with umbrellas, it is always clean, there are many cafes, souvenir shops, shops, there are even several massage parlors. The developed infrastructure attracts not only tourists, but also residents of Bali on Kuta.

It is an ideal place to surf. And even for beginners. For a moderate fee, you will be offered a surfboard, and experienced instructors will teach you how to deal with it confidently. The famous promenade stretches along the coast - a great place for evening walks, especially at sunset, which Kuta is so famous for.

Note: it’s impossible to swim in pleasure because of the almost unceasing waves, and lifeguards on the shore constantly whistle for those who try to swim, recalling them to the shore.

Suitable for: surfing, comfortable beach holidays


Rating: 4.6

One of the classic beaches of Bali with well-developed infrastructure, luxurious white sand and crystal clear "quiet" water in the ocean. A wide strip of the coast and the absence of waves attract many tourists from nearby hotels (often they are taken to this beach for free), as well as from Kuta. Nevertheless, the coast is not crowded: you can comfortably sit on a sun lounger, which is easy to rent for a moderate fee.

The calm ocean allows you to enjoy swimming all year round (regardless of the season): coral reefs perfectly protect against waves. The beach is thoroughly cleaned of debris and algae. At Mengiat you can not only swim in the Indian Ocean, but also do water sports, have a tasty snack, relax in one of the massage parlors.

Suitable for: for a comfortable beach holiday, swimming

Padang Padang Beach

Rating: 4.5

A modest small beach is incredibly popular with visiting tourists, so during the peak season it is often crowded. But this is perhaps his only drawback. Once Padang Padang was a secret place that only locals knew about. But the film "Eat, Pray, Love", which was partially shot here, made its own adjustments.

There is a great sandy beach, calm, clear water like glass, and big waves are rare. But for lovers of excellent surfing on the coast there is a place. If you sail away into the ocean, you can catch a great wave. And, yes, it is mainly professionals who ride here. Near the shore there is a small cafe with cool drinks, as well as tents with bathing accessories.

Note: you can rent an umbrella on Padang-Padang, but there are no sun loungers, so you have to bask in the bare sand.

Suitable for: for family holidays, surfing

Nusa dua beach

Rating: 4.5

This beach is in the area with the highest concentration of five-star hotels. The location is ideal for a luxurious, relaxing holiday. There are several beaches here and all of them are distinguished by incredible cleanliness, fine velvet sand and a wide coastline. Nusa Dua Beach is the best option for a respectable and family holiday with children.

The coast here is quite shallow, but this is not an obstacle for those who want to swim or learn to windsurf, for example. Riding here is quite rare. Most of Nusa Dua's beaches are geographically related to the hotels near which they are located. Therefore, not being their guest, you can meet a polite, but persistent guard.

There is also a city beach in Nusa Dua, next to which there is an unusual place - "Devil's Bridge" - the wave here mercilessly beat against the rocks.

Suitable for: family vacation, for swimming


Rating: 4.5

The beach is presented in the form of a narrow strip of sand less than a kilometer long. Northern Balangan

there is a massive rock that goes straight into the water - it is incredibly popular with photographers conducting wedding photo shoots. Swimming on the beach is quite dangerous: the waves are strong, but there are no lifeguards on the coast. But the place is ideal for surfing. Balangan is considered a popular surf slot.

There are never many people on the coast: often guests of local hotels relax here. But here there are many varungs where they cook excellent traditional dishes of fresh seafood.

Note: the beach along its entire length is dotted with volcanic rock of stony origin, completely covered with moss. An ideal place for superb photos, but getting into the water without shoes is almost impossible.

Suitable for: surfing

Jimbaran beach

Rating: 4.4

One of the best southern beaches of Bali, located in a picturesque bay with magnificent views. Nearby there are many comfortable hotels. There are several cozy cafes and bars right on the beach. If desired, food can be ordered directly to the deck chair. Jimbaran beach is known for excellent fish restaurants where you can try almost any freshest seafood delicacies.

The entrance to the water here is absolutely gentle, the bottom is sand, the depth is very shallow, which will allow even children to splash in the ocean. The beach is perfectly clean: the order here is strictly monitored. Connoisseurs of boat trips will appreciate the luxurious expanse of the sea, taking a ride on the boat of some local resident who will arrange an incredible excursion.

Suitable for: for a comfortable family vacation
