The most popular tourist destination in the world, Bali is mostly known for its stunning beaches.
Kuta, Legion, Nusa Dua, and Sanur are popular names that you might already know. But, have you ever wondered that apart from those famous names, there are still other beautiful beaches in Bali? Beaches that are far from the city are hidden among high cliffs and surrounded by forest.
You may need more time and effort to reach these hidden beaches, but your hard work will surely pay off once you reach them. The hidden beaches are definitely worth your effort.
Here is the LIst of 7 Stunning Beaches
1. Perasi Beach
It is also known as “Virgin Beach” or “Pantai Pasir Putih”. It is located in Karangasem Regency, East Bali. If you prefer a calm, beautiful beach, then Paraasi Beach is a perfect choice.
There is neither hotel nor a villa near the beach, so you need to book a hotel in Denpasar or Karangasem. However, you can find many stalls for food around the shore. You can enjoy walking by the sea while having some snacks and drinks. There is also a chair and umbrella to rent if you want to lie down all day while watching the panorama of the beach.
Perasi Beach is about four and a half kilometers from Kandy Dasa.
If you start your journey from Denpasar, it will take you around one and a half hours to reach Kandy Dasa. From here, you just have to follow the sign from the Candidasa main road in Bugbug to the village of Perasi and turn onto a small broken road at Pura Desa Bale Agung. This broken road will take you to the beach location.
Beach signboards may use several names such as “White Sand Beach”, “Pasir Putih”, “Pantai Perasi” or “Virgin Beach”. From here you can walk about a kilometer down the hill. This road will take you to the beach where a parking area is available. There are many palm trees around which will make you feel cool and fresh.
2. Balangan Beach
Balangan Beach is located near Uluwatu. It is the most popular destination in Bali. This beach is loved by many surfers because of its amazing high waves.
Unlike Perasi Beach, you can stay at guest houses in Balangan or some cottages near the beach.
3. Green Bowl Beach
This beach is located in southern Bali and its location is quite difficult to reach. You can walk through the disused Bali Cliffs resort at this Green Bowl beach.
Then, there are a hundred steps to walk down and there is also a bat cave. However, all your exhaustion in reaching this place will be paid for directly after reaching there. The serenity here is like heaven with breathtaking views. Its spectacular waves become another must-see for any professional surfer. Green Bowl Beach is indeed a beach hidden away with spectacular natural beauty.
4. Amade Beach
The name “Amade” actually refers to a fisherman’s village located in East Bali. This place is the best place for diving and snorkeling along with watching the sunrise.
Charming coastal villages are spread along the shore with Mount Agung as the backdrop. You can reach Amed from southern Bali by about two hours drive via Karangasem and Klungkung. The beach is also the best option for those who like to visit other popular local attractions like Tirtha Ganga Water Palace and Pura Goa Lava.
Dream Beach is located in Nusa Lembongan. it is a small island on the east side of Bali. You need about thirty minutes boat trip from Sanur or Benoa Harbour.
With its alluring white sands on southern Nusa Lembongan, Dream Beach is worth a visit. Rows of palm trees and wild bushes around the beach add even more interesting points to this beach. All this beauty is supported by cheap hotels and local cafes.
Finn Beach is a one-of-a-kind beach that is perfect for family fun. It is the perfect place to enjoy the sunlight and beautiful beach panoramas. To reach this beach, you can use the road to Pantai Selatan Gau in the Ungaasan area and follow the signs to The Finns.
The best moment to visit this beach is when you ride the cable lift surrounded by two steep cliffs on your right and left. Admission tickets can be more expensive than at other beaches but include the temptingly delicious food from The Finns.
Volcanic black sand with high ripples is a special character of the West Bali beach. It will surely make any surfer fall in love. The surrounding environment is different from other Bali beaches. It has mesmerizing waves.
Cheap accommodation is available near Baliyan, so you don’t need to worry about your budget when you visit this beach. You will need about a two-hour drive to reach Balyan Beach from Seminyak (depending on traffic). Since the road to this beach also becomes the way to Guillimanuk Harbour, you need to be more careful and patient with trucks or buses heading towards Java Island.
