04 Famous Beaches in Uluwatu – Experience the Exotic

Uluwatu is a surfer's paradise; home to one of Bali's main iconic temples, towering sea cliffs and hidden sandy beaches accessed via caves. Read on and explore the four best beaches in this region.


Padang Padang Beach

Padang Padang is a kind of 'celebrity' beach that was featured in the Hollywood movie – Eat Pray Love. The place is hidden away not too far from iconic Uluwatu Temple and is just 10 minutes from Pecatu Village. Entrance to the beach is through a mystical limestone cave, and as you emerge from there, lashings of sunshine greet you as your feet sink into the soft sand. The beach is framed by verdant sea cliffs with Pura Luhur or Uluwatu Temple perched atop one that is 250 feet high. There are plenty of resorts that sit at the top of these cliffs and like Alila Villas Uluwatu Bali some boast vistas of the ocean from a height of 100 feet.


Blue Point - Suluban Beach

Blue Point is located in close proximity to Uluwatu Temple and Padang Padang Beach; locally the place is called 'Suluban' which translates to walking through something. This name was coined due to the fact that one needs to walk through a coral reef cave to get to the beach. You are greeted by an amazing white sand beach and view of the Indian Ocean that is simply stunning; the kind of view you would expect from a Bali luxury villa Uluwatu is renowned for. Do make it in time for the stunning sunset and you will have memories to last a lifetime.
