Everybody visiting the island wants to find the white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of Bali. So we’ve narrows down our favourite Uluwatu beaches and others around the area to give you some of the best Bali beaches.
Best Bali Beaches – Uluwatu Beaches
We’ll start with our best beach in Bali – Melasti Beach! It was like a snippet of the Philippines within Indonesia…
This picturesque spot was a little out of the way but well worth the trip down south for.
A beautiful beach located below a high cliff with unspoiled blue sea. The long coastal strip gives you plenty of space to perch yourself in and switch off for the day.
Before you head down to our favourite of the Uluwatu beaches, don’t forget to capture a scenic photo from above.
Green Bowl Beach
Second on the list, again this is one of the best Bali beaches!
Definitely a hidden gem amongst the south coast. After walking down many steps we made it to the plush spot that is Green Bowl Beach. There’s also a naturally formed cave where you can catch some shade if the sun gets too much. Definitely one of the best white sand beaches in Bali.
We headed over to Jimbaran Beach and experienced a beautiful pink, fluffy sunset. All whilst watching the locals play football and families messing around. A definite hotspot for the locals.
Uluwatu Beach – Suluban Cave
You’ll have probably seen this spot on Instagram. Although Uluwatu is more popular for its surf, this is one of the small hidden beaches in Bali and makes for the perfect place to chill out.
Nyang Nyang Beach
After a short forest trek down, you’ll end up at yet another long stretch of sand known as Nyang Nyang Beach.
This is where the famous graffiti’d vessel lays. A popular spot for tourists. There’s even a little hidden swing making for an awesome photo opportunity using the ocean as a stunning backdrop.
A famous place among Uluwatu beaches for sunset!
You can sit right on top of the cliff at Balangan Beach and watch the sun go down over the horizon. Such a beautiful place and so much so that we even spotted a wedding shoot taking place whilst visiting.
Tegal Wangi Beach – Natural Jacuzzi
Naturally formed rock pools make for an awesome ‘private jacuzzi’ at Tegal Wangi Beach – one of our other favourite sunset spots. The caves and the rock formations definitely make this beach unique and another easy spot to spend an evening.
Not necessarily one of the best Bali beaches but definitely one of the most unique!
Bingin Beach made it to the best Bali beaches blog – more so for its photo opportunities than its stunning sands.
We headed there to get the famous Instagram photo with it’s huge boulder and tiny tree on top. Although there was a lot of rubbish washed up on the beach when we visited. If you do plan to check it out, be sure to make it there early before the tide comes in.
Padang Padang Beach
At the bottom of the jungle walk lies a small bay, making for the perfect beach to enjoy a day out with friends and play around in the water. Watch out for the monkeys on the way down though!
Padang Padang is well known in the Uluwatu beaches area, although could be classed as one of the hidden beaches in Bali.
If you’re looking for a black sand beach in Bali, head to Pasut Beach.
It has the most beautiful forest of palm trees overlooking Pantai Pasut, as well as a super funky shaped palm tree which is awesome for photos!
