Discover the Best Beaches in Uluwatu – Top Surfing Playground

Uluwatu sits on the southern peninsula of Bali. Framed by gorgeous limestone cliffs and home to one the country's most iconic temples this surf resort boasts the country's finest beaches.

1

Padang Padang Beach

This is one of Uluwatu's 'celebrity' beaches due to the fact that the Hollywood movie "Eat, Pray, Love" was filmed at the place and as we are sure Julia Roberts fell in love with the location – so will you. Padang Padang Beach is just under 15 minutes from Alila Villas Uluwatu; the place is quite popular and tends to get a bit crowded when its peak tourists season. Although the narrow strip of beach is well worth the visit and boasts a much better quality of water and sand than other Bali resorts. Entry to the beach is via a split between 2 rocks while above a concrete bridge spans the width of the beach. Mind you Padang Padang is also a professional surfer beach and is well known for its consistent swells. The area called Pantai Labuan Sait locally is quite beautiful and overlooks an ancient temple.

Suluban Beach

Also called 'Blue Point' this is a very popular surf beach that's not limited to visitors out to catch the perfect break. Suluban is the kind of beach you visit for some adventure and for experiencing the very popular 'Single Fin Sunday' surf parties. The beach is home to a natural pool that forms between the beach and rocks and is the ideal swim destination. The place is picture postcard perfect; equal to the blissful experience one encounters at a Bali luxury villa Uluwatu is famous for. You need to descend a steep flight of stairs in the rock face and creep through craggy openings to get to the beach. And on days the swells are at their best stay on the cliff top and enjoy a bird's eye view of all surfing action.

Bingin Beach

Sun worshippers and beach lovers will settle down well at Bingin Beach. The place caters to a beach-loving community out for sun sand and surf. Modern day luxuries are not of importance here and you may find a scarcity of plush accommodation and basics such as hot water or air conditioning. However this is what makes Bingin unique, it is the carefree character of the place focusing on enjoying nature as it is. Apart from the rustic beauty of Bingin you can enjoy sights of fishermen bringing in a new catch in the wee hours of the morning or head over to the beach and night and watch a fresh load of squid being unloaded under the light of the moon. Getting to the beach too is quite an experience as you navigate across forests, alleys and toll booths to finally emerge at the Bohemian style shore. Laid back beach bars and cafes offer chilled beer and delicious snacks while the beach framing a short coral bed and the emerald green sea is quite the treat.

Pandawa Beach

Locally called Pantai Kutuh this beach located on the south coast of the resort boasts a kilometre long stretch of sandy shore. The area is ideal for swimming and indulging in a variety of water sports. Well serviced by a range of restaurants where you can order anything from burgers to steaks the beach is framed by limestone cliffs into which statues of the 'five pandawas' meaning legendary heroes are carved into.
