Bali's Best Hidden Beaches

The tropical island of Bali is rich in beauty as it is in historical heritage. If you're a beach-lover, this is bound to be a paradise.


Balangan Beach

If you're looking for a decent beach to surf at, then Balangan is the place for you. Following the commercialisation of the popular Dreamland, Balangan became the surfing hotspot. Locating this beach is easy since it's a short distance away from Four Points by Sheraton Bali Kuta, an easy to find hotel in Kuta. The atmosphere of the Balangan beach is very casual, and anyone can surf if they know how. There are various schools as well for the novices and people curious about their surfing capabilities. The waters are also safe to swim in at high-tide, and children are also commonly seen building sand-castles. There are various cafes to be found along the shore as well as very affordable accommodation.


Geger Beach

For a more down-toned option with relaxation in store, there's Geger Beach, located a mere five minutes away from the Nusa Dua Golf-Course. The clear blue waters at Geger Beach are serene and still, allowing for easy swimming without any fear of currents or rough waters. The sand is also fairly dense, making it a perfect destination for beach sports such as volleyball or badminton. Geger Beach is an ideal family destination.


Bias Tugal

This is one of the most secluded beaches to be found on Bali, and is therefore the epitome of tranquillity. If you manage to make your way to this calm and secluded locale you're bound to find a handful of occupants at worst. Completing a five-hundred-meter trek is necessary to reach the beach, where you will find a beach-bound paradise, with clear blue waters and pristine white-sands. The only potential drawback is that the currents can be fairly strong, and given the secluded nature of the beach, its best to avoid swimming too far from the shore, and instead take a casual dip close to shore.



Consistently labelled as Bali's most beautiful beach, Ungasan is located at the Southernmost tip of the island. The beach is incredibly well maintained, with waters the same colour as the sky, with gentle waves that smoothly kiss the shores. The currents tend to get stronger towards the evening so if you intend to swim, it's best to do so before the afternoon. There's a small catch concerning this beach since it requires a fee of $27 to enter. The fee is however completely redeemable for food or beverages at a resort within the beach area.



This is definitely the most unique beach on the island of Bali since the sands, instead of the usual pristine white, are a volcanic black. Instead of the usual crowd of swimmers and surfers, you're bound to find a beach lined with various boats. Most of the people that venture on to Amed beach are divers, since there are many lucrative wrecks to be found in the waters surrounding the beach. Additionally, corals and aquatic life are bountiful, so divers and snorkelers are the crowd you will find at this unique beach.
