Known for its pristine collection of beaches, Bali is home to world-class surf paradise, long stretches of idyllic shores, beautiful beach-scapes, and more. From white sandy beaches to strips of onyx black seasides, each of this jewel often comes with a side of gorgeous panorama, melodic waves and wonderful soul-soothing effects.
But, here’s the catch: Since B is for 'beaches' in Bali, a lot of these beaches can get pretty crowded. Rubbing shoulders or fighting for suntanning spot is not exactly the definition of perfect tropical holiday, that’s why we’re always on a hunt for the next less-travelled places in Bali to search for the next diamonds in the rough. So without further ado, let’s head straight to these 5 hidden beaches for your secret getaway!
Located in Pecatu Village of Badung, Nyang-Nyang made the headlines as one of the best beaches in the world and a must-visit spot back in 2018. Still, this beach is still relatively hidden and not as crowded compared to other more famous ones in South of Kuta.
The best time to visit Nyang-Nyang beach is May to October when it’s sunny. Otherwise the rain will pose more challenge to the quite tricky and slippery route, which probably explains why it’s not as packed. But once you get there, the flawless sand, green towering cliff and crystal clear water will make it all worthwhile.
The million dollar view of Indian Ocean, romantic vibes during sunset and glorious waves, these are all the winning features that make Balangan Beach another must-visit in Bali. Located in the white stone hill area of Pecatu, this beach is quite popular for surfers, both local and foreign travelers. Still, non-surfers can also enjoy this beach with scenic view and soft sand. Don’t forget to stay for the dramatic sunset while taking a walk along the coastline.
Bias Tugel probably doesn’t sound familiar, but is slowly gaining popularity as a unique beach destination one simply has to witness in Bali. Just a quick fact about the name, Bias means sand and Tugel a part, so the this local beach translates to “a small part of beach”.
You don’t want to underestimate the size though, because this special beach comes with its own lagoon that doubles up as nature’s best swimming pool. To get here, you will need to climb down and find the location in the back of the hills. With few visitors and quiet atmosphere, enjoy your slice of paradise to your heart’s content.
Get your stamina ready, because Green Bowl Beach requires quite some work to enjoy! Named after the color of the moss-covered cliffs that mimic the shape of a bowl, this secret beach is not only quite far from the center of South Bali, but is also placed about more than 300 steps down the stairs.
The visitors of Green Bowl are mostly locals who go there to fish or surfers who are looking to ride the magnificent waves. Chilling or swimming is recommended here when the tide is low, and another must- do is explore the beachside caves. With hundreds of sleeping bats during noon, it’s going to be a thrilling adventure you won’t forget.
Located not far from the famous Pandawa beach, this secluded beach boasts crystal clear water, white sandy beach and mesmerizing exotic view. Part of the reason why Gunung Payung remains untouched is the lack of modern infrastructure, but it is still highly explorable, surprisingly clean and easily accessible from main road.
Surrounded by hills and cliffs, it is the perfect location for photoshoot, water sports, relaxing, and more. Just grab a book, your sunblock, other beach essentials, and we promise you will soon get lost in the world of natural beauty unlike any other.
