As wild as Bali could be for the youngsters, it is still one of our most favorite family destinations during the school holidays. While the partygoers might pack the street of Legian, the families are having their own fun by burying each other under the sands and building sandcastles on the beach. But what makes a family-friendly beach in Bali, really?
Cleanliness is a start. Easy access to clean toilets is also a plus! You don’t want to have your kids cramping because they can’t find a place to do number 2. For this reason, the beach in Kuta and Jimbaran should be perfect for families. Located a few meters away from the main street, toilets should not be a problem. On the plus side, it has a beautiful sunset view point and also calm waves for the little ones.
In every family getaway, parents are always cramped with lots of bags to carry. That is why accessibility should also be considered. Flights of stairs like the ones in Blue Point beach will be a disaster! However, Nusa Lembongan is never a problem for families to visit. With such an easy access, your families can enjoy all the fun that Nusa Lembongan beach has. Specifically, take them to the Mushroom beach to enjoy friendly water sports and seaweed farming. For a relaxing afternoon, take a visit to the Dream beach for a picturesque sunset before leaving Nusa Lembongan.
Take note of small little details such as the textures of the sand. It should be soft instead of rocky. That’s why Padang Padang beach is one of the best family beaches to visit. Known as one of the cleanest beaches in Bali, the sands are safe for the kids and the water is waste free. It's no wonder that it's the beach that made Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love famous (or was it the other way around?)
As great as it is to just play in the sand and swim in the water, experience and entertainment is also key to keeping your kids happy. You can have all of that in Lovina Beach, where the dolphins swim and jump freely. Located in the north of the island, it is far away from the city and is the perfect place for families to enjoy each other’s companion. Although the sand is black and the beach itself is not as developed, but dolphin watching will definitely make a memorable experience for your kids!
All in all, Bali is heaven for everyone. You and your family could have an amazing time in Bali if you know just where to go. If your destinations are all set, don’t forget to bring back lovely pictures from those lovely beaches. For that matter, leave it to us. SweetEscape will do it for you.
