5 Best Beaches in Bali: Swimming, Surfing and Sunbathing - Savour a slice of sun, sand, and sea on the beach

Azure waters, palm-fringed shores, and a delightfully charming seaside aura — the idyllic island of Bali is ringed by a string of picture-postcard beaches, blessing the touristy island with a breathtaking seascape. Hit the alluring seaside and savour a slice of sun, sand, and sea on your getaway.


Jimbaran Beach - savour both a slice of beach and a mouthful of seafood

The 4-kilometre curved stretch of pristine white sand that make up Jimbaran Beach is, without a doubt, one of the most stunning in the whole of the Indonesian island. An unbroken coral reef keeps the surf rather mellow at this slice of beach, but still affords breaks that make for some thrilling bodysurfing. Come the tranquil and gorgeous sunset, outdoor string lights brighten up the evening, the countless sun loungers that pepper the pretty sands make way for restaurant tables serving mouth-watering seafood, and the scene is alluringly vibrant.


Sanur Beach - let yourself lose in a relaxing late-afternoon stroll

Stretching for more than 5 kilometres, the paved beachfront promenade of Sanur Beach draws those looking forward to a relaxing late-afternoon stroll or jog, and families with strollers craving some beach bumming. The beach's shallow waters and offshore reefs that reduce the surf to tiny waves make it even more appealing to families with kids in tow. Much like the town of Sanur itself, the scenic beach has managed to preserve most of its tranquillity and authenticity, even despite the clutch of resorts that back the shores.


Yeh Leh Beach - untouched sands under the radar

Despite stretching for an incredible 10 kilometres, the lovely beach of Yeh Leh has been nestled under the radar all this time. Virtually unknown by almost all tourists to the island, one could safely describe it as the wildest stretch of beach in Bali. Anyone yearning for a moment of peace and quiet and to wallow in undisturbed tranquillity, Yeh Leh Beach is the place to be. Stroll the untouched sands for miles, admiring the alluring scene, with nothing to spoil your solitude aura.


Kuta Beach - the legendary of all Bali beaches

It was on this stretch of white and grey sand that tourism first began on the island of Bali. The 2.5-kilometre-long expanse of sand still lures hordes of beach-craving travellers without fail. Kuta Beach's wide popularity among tourists and locals alike means that this stretch of beach may be more crowded than most other beaches on the island, but its thrilling breaks, gorgeous sunsets and abundance of amenities certainly make up for the rather crowded atmosphere.


Uluwatu Beach - ride the waves of the turquoise blue

Adrenaline junkies looking forward to a few thrilling breaks, Uluwatu Beach won't disappoint you. Located at the far southern end of the island on the Bukit peninsula, Uluwatu Beach, also known as Suluban Beach, is one of the top beaches on the island for some exciting surfing. Vacationing tourists could also find some of the best Bali beach resorts in the vicinity the likes of Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort.
