As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Bali is best known for its fantastic beaches. Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua and Sanur are the popular names that you may already know. But have you ever thought that aside from these famous names, Bali still has other beautiful beaches? The beaches that are far away from the city, 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 certainly be paid off when you reach them. The hidden beaches are definitely worth a try.
First Perasi beach
This beach is also known as "Virgin Beach" or "Pantai Pasir Putih". It is located in the Karangasem regency of eastern Bali. If you like a quiet, beautiful beach, Perasi Beach is the right choice.
There is no hotel or villa near the beach, so you must book a hotel in Denpasar or Karangasem. However, you can find many food stalls around the coast. You can enjoy walking the coast while eating some snacks and drinks. There is also chair and canopy rentals if you want to lie down all day while watching the beach panorama.
Perasi beach is about four and a half kilometers away from Candi Dasa. If you start your journey from Denpasar, you will need about an hour and a half to reach Candi Dasa. From here, just follow the signpost from Candidasa's main roads in Bugbug to Perasi Village and turn onto a slightly broken road over Pura Desa Bale Agung. This broken road brings you to the beach.
The beach sign may use several names such as "White Sand Beach", "Pasir Putih", "Pantai Perasi" or "Virgin Beach". From here you can walk down the hill approx. one kilometer. This road leads you to the beach where a parking area is available. There are many palm trees nearby so you will feel cool and fresh.
2nd Balangan Beach
Balangan Beach is located near Uluwatu, one of the most popular destinations in Bali. This beach is preferred by many surfers because of its wonderful high waves.
Unlike Perasi Beach, you can stay at Guest House in Balangan or in some cottages near the beach.
Third Green Bowl Beach
This beach is located in southern Bali and quite difficult to reach its location. You can walk to this Green Bowl Beach through the untapped resort of Bali Cliff. Then there are a hundred steps of stairs to go down and also a bat to pass. However, all your exhaustion in reaching this place is paid directly when you reach it. The tranquility along with the stunning views is like a sky. Its large waves become another point for any professional surfer to visit. Green Bowl Beach is truly hidden beach with a magnificent natural beauty.
4th Amed Beach
The name "Amed" actually refers to a fishing village located in eastern Bali. This place has the best spot to watch sunrise as well as scuba diving and snorkeling.
Attractive coastal villages are scattered along the coast with Mount Agung as the backdrop. You can reach Amed after driving about two hours from southern Bali through Karangasem and Klungkung. The beach is also the best choice for anyone who likes to visit other popular local attractions such as Tirta Gangga Water Palace and Pura Goa Lawah.
5th Dream Beach
Dream Beach is located in Nusa Lembongan, a small island on the eastern side of Bali. You need about thirty minutes boat ride from Sanur or Benoa Harbor.
With its fascinating white sands on southern Nusa Lembongan, Dream Beach is a sight to behold. Rows of palm trees and wild bushes around the beach add more interesting points to this beach. All this beauty supported by cheap hotels and local cafes.
6th Finn Beach
Finn Beach is a kind of beach suitable for family recreation. This is the right place to enjoy the sunlight and the lovely beach panorama. To reach this beach you can use the road to Pantai Selatan Gau in Ungasan area and follow the Finns & # 39; signs.
The best moment of the trip to this beach is when you ride the cable lift flanked by two steep cliffs on the right and left. The entrance fee may be more expensive than the other beaches, but it includes tempting delicious food from the Finns. So the price is really worth it.
7th Balian Beach
Volcanic black sand with high wave is a special feature of the western Bali beach. It will definitely make any surfers fall in love. The atmosphere around is different from the other Bali beaches. It has rod-binding vibes.
There are cheap homes near Balian so you do not have to worry about your budget when visiting this beach. You will need approximately two hours drive from Seminyak (depends on traffic) to reach Balian Beach. As the road to this beach also becomes the road to Gilimanuk Harbor, you need to be more careful and patient with trucks or buses traveling towards Java Island.
