Possibly the cleanest of the Uluwatu beaches and home to awesome graffiti shipwrecks. Here’s all the info for visiting Nyang Nyang Beach Bali.
Nyang Nyang Beach is located on the very south coast of Bali.
Home to the photogenic shipwrecks, Nyang Nyang Beach is one of the most popular Uluwatu beaches.
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
We’ve heard many stories about people visiting this beach and finding lots of trash scattered everywhere. However, when we visited, it was completely clean.
Please know that, different seasons in Bali depend on what state you will find the beaches in. Trash is known to wash up from the ocean towards the end of monsoon season.
Bali’s rainy season runs from October to April, with the wettest months being December and January. No matter what the season you can expect a tropical, warm and humid climate all year round.

Once you’ve parked up, head towards the pop up stalls that will no doubt offer you a Bintang for the journey down.
Once you reach the beginning of the trails it’s pretty straight forward from there. Follow the signs and head to the sound of the ocean and you can’t miss the beautiful Nyang Nyang Beach.
It takes around twenty minutes to ‘trek’ down to the beach and you should probably wear more than just flip flops. The trail can be rocky or slippery depending on recent weather, but the reward at the end is definitely worth the wait!

Nyang Nyang Beach Bali is a pristine 1.5-km stretch of white sand on the southernmost coast of Bali. Remote and secluded by cliffs, the beach calls for a long trek down a lush cliffside to reach it.
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.
Nyang Nyang Beach Bali was another one of our favourite Uluwatu Beaches because it was so clean and secluded.
The beach seems to go on forever so there’s plenty of space to take a quiet stroll and even find a private spot to bathe by yourself.
The waves can get choppy, so we recommend only heading into the water if you’re a confident swimmer because there are no lifeguards on patrol.
There’s also a local pop up stall at the entrance to the beach selling refreshments. This stall may not always be there, so be sure to carry plenty of water and some energy boosters with you. You’re going to need it before your trek back up to the top.
The Bali Shipwreck Vessels
A huge tourist attraction at Nyang Nyang Beach Bali are the abandoned graffiti boat vessels.
The artwork on the sides is constantly changing thanks to the local artists that visit regularly, and the Bali vessels make for an awesome Instagram photo.
So explore Nyang Nyang Beach Bali and make sure to save some energy for the walk back up. It’s a bit tougher than the way down, especially in the Bali heat.
