Kelingking Beach – Penida Island

Arguably the most photogenic spot, Kelingking Beach in Penida Island is one of those viewpoints that is hard to believe that it’s real when you see it for the first time. This entire coastal area is particularly beautiful – the white cliffs contrast dramatically with the turquoise blue waters. This is a popular spot for tourists, since it isn’t too far from Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach. Penida Island is still relatively unknown and definitely much less visited. It still feels likeRead more

Atuh Beach – Penida Island

Atuh is the most developed of the beaches on Nusa Penida. But fear not, developed on this incredible island doesn’t mean much more than a set of steps, a couple of small warungs (beach hut restaurants) and a dozen sun loungers. This white sandy beach offers a dramatic vista of the steep cliffs and some insane rock formations in the water. The snorkelling ain’t half bad either. Good to know: You should brace yourself for another slightly treacherous scooter rideRead more

Sanur Beach

Sanur is Bali’s oldest upscale resort area and is a mature beach-side town. The beach, while thin, is protected by a reef and breakwaters, so families appreciate the limpid waves. Sanur stretches for about 5km along an east-facing coastline, with the lush and green landscaped grounds of resorts fronting right on to the sandy beach.

Suwehan Beach – Penida Island

Cutting through the centre of the island to get there, you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the lush Nusa Penida countryside. Coconut trees cover almost every available surface, while a long winding road twists its way down towards the sea, finally reaching a small car park, only recognisable as such thanks to the small refreshments stand and a rusty old sign saying Suwehan. We followed a steep path from the carpark, scrambling in places, down to a horseshoe cove. Read more

Balian Beach

There are yoga retreats at the low-key resorts along the beach, and rental motorbikes for exploringRead more

Amed Beach

Truth be told, Amed has long been on the map for tourists seeking to elude Bali’s crazy south, but the series of looping bays along the coast of east Bali retains a charming washed-out feel — like a spot that enjoyed a long-passed heyday and now has a rather slightly sleepy European feel. The appeal here is solid off-the-beach snorkeling and diving in several of the bays, including the Japanese wreck at Banyuning. You can base yourself at Amed toRead more
