We’ve hunted down some of the best beaches in Bali to share our photos and recommendations with you. Everybody visiting the island wants to find the white sand beaches in Bali and crystal clear waters. So with only a few select spots on the island, here is our guide to some of the nicest beaches in Bali.
Where To Find The Best Beaches In Bali
This picturesque spot was a little out of the well but worth the trip. 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 your own quiet spot. Before you head down, don’t forget to capture a scenic photo from above.
Green Bowl Beach
Second on the list, although for us this is one of the best beaches in Bali. If not the best!
Definitely a hidden gem amongst the Bali beaches. 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. This is where the famous graffiti’d vessel lays. A popular spot for tourists. There’s even a little hidden swing that we stopped at, making for an awesome photo opportunity using the ocean as a stunning backdrop.
A famous place for sunset! You can sit right on top of the cliff top 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 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.
Bingin Beach made it to the best beaches in Bali 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 area but could be classed as one of the hidden beaches in Bali.
