Tucked away in concealed corners, you can enjoy the best of Bali far away from the crowd. Explore isolated pristine white sands and black sand beaches. There are numerous treasures of secret, beautiful beaches in Bali just for you.
Gunung Payung Beach
Located just one hour away from Denpasar City, the beautiful panoramic views of Gunung Payung Beach can be found east of the famous Pandawa Beach. Ask the locals for directions or find the Gunung Payung Temple, but be prepared for some serious climbing of 300 steps!
This clean beach boasts spectacular views of the ocean and a glimpse of the local life. You can surf, snorkel, or even practice yoga here. You will also get to witness seaweed farmers and sea urchin collectors doing their daily jobs right at Gunung Payung Beach.
Getting to Suluban Beach can be quite a challenge as you need to access it through narrow rocky steps.
Although sunbathers might not favor this beach, pro surfers will absolutely love Suluban, as it shares the same surf breaks as the famous Padang Padang and Uluwatu Beach.
Another hidden gem, a surfer’s favorite, is Balangan Beach! Compared to other secret beaches in Bali, access to Balangan Beach is quite simple, with only a dozen steps down before reaching this surfer’s paradise. After a surfing session, enjoy the surroundings as there are numerous beach shacks serving surfer meals and cold refreshments, including beer.
Green Bowl Beach
Although getting to Green Bowl Beach is pretty tricky, as you step down into its sands it will be worth it.
This beach sets a perfect example of Bali’s natural hidden beauty. Before stepping into the sand, you need to climb down hundreds of steep steps.
As you reach the beach, there are several bat caves. Often, you get to see hundreds of bats sleeping at noon. If you’d like to visit this hidden paradise, it’s advised to come after 3 pm where tides are relatively low.
A boat ride away from Bali, Diamond Beach boasts one of the most jaw-dropping views you will ever see in Nusa Penida. Imagine turquoise waters with a stretch of white sandy beach. Before stepping onto its sands, you will need to descend a couple hundred stairs. Relax and soak up the sun as you watch the day go by.
Hop on a boat from Sanur Beach to get to Bali’s neighboring island, Nusa Penida. Be sure to get to the boat early to see a stunning sunrise over Sanur Beach.
