Blue Lagoon Beach Bali – A Complete Guide To Visiting

Blue Lagoon Beach Bali Blue Lagoon Bali

Blue Lagoon Beach Bali is a much less known spot than some places in Bali, but great for snorkelling and relaxing. Here’s all the info for visiting.

How To Get To Blue Lagoon Beach Bali

Located out East, the Blue Lagoon Beach Bali is around 1 hour from Ubud and 1 and a half hours from Canggu.

Many people heading to East Bali choose to stay in the small beach town of Amed, which is around 30 minutes from Pura Lempuyang Temple, however Blue Lagoon Beach is easily accessible if staying in Ubud.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. However be sure to read up on our Renting A Scooter In Bali guide beforehand! If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a trusted scooter rental here.

Another option is to rent a driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours). Here’s an easy link to book a private car with a driver for the day.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Best Time To Visit + Tips

The best time to visit Bali is between April and October, the island’s dry season.

The Blue Lagoon is still one of the lesser known spots on the island so is typically not crowded with tourists. However, as with anywhere in Bali the best time to visit is always earlier in the morning!

If you’re a diver then Blue Lagoon is a popular spot for you! We’d certainly recommend going down into the deep waters of the ocean, as here is known to be one of the best areas for marine life in Bali!

What To Expect At Blue Lagoon Beach Bali

Just around the corner from the Padangbai, where ferries by the dozen charter tourists over to the Gili Islands, lies this secluded corner of paradise.

The Blue Lagoon Beach is known for being a great spot for snorkelling and diving. Plus it’s rarely crowded day to day!

There are just a few steps down from the car park and local warungs at the tip of the cliff. An ideal day out for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet.

A few metres out from shore there are beautiful coral reef and tropical fish that will swim around your feet. So if you’re heading out East definitely pack a snorkel. Otherwise all equipment is available to rent from the locals by the beach.

We had a bit of a nightmare as we visited in March, so it was stormy when we arrived. The best time to visit is between April – October after the rainy season in Bali.

Overall though we could see the potential of this beautiful place, so if you’re looking for an easy ride and a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle then Blue Lagoon Beach is perfect.

    Thanks for the great article.
    We want to scooter over for the day, is there anywhere to leave our money and new iPhone while we snorkel? Would scooter be safe enough?
    Thank you

      Hey guys, I’m not sure there are lockers? However we left our stuff under the seat of our scooter and it was fine. The car park is safe for scooters.
