Tall cliffs, gnarly waves and ice-cold drinks—Uluwatu Beach has got it all. Best known for Sundays Beach Club and some seriously adventure-inducing caves, this place has something for every kind of traveler. Nearby Uluwatu Temple lets you make a day out of it. You can stay in the area or grab a driver and take the 45-minute scenic cruise from Kuta or Seminyak.
We love a good secret, and Virgin Beach is one of them. Situated on the eastern side of the island, you can enjoy rocks, forest, sand and water in one vista. Rent some snorkeling equipment from beachfront stalls and get to swimming or hop on a fishing boat and go out a little further for some stellar marine life. You can find Virgin Beach in Karangasem.
Double Six Beach
At first glance, Double-Six Beach brings a rainbow of colorful beach umbrellas. Look a little closer and you’ll unearth bright sand, blue water and some surf-friendly breaks. It’s conveniently located in Seminyak, so you can easily get here by taxi, scooter, bicycle or your trusty two feet. You can always stay at the luxury hotel of the same name if it suits your fancy.
Padang Padang Beach
Expect nothing less than to have a blast at Legian Beach. Surf lessons and board rentals fill the daytime with exuberance. You can fill your time with shopping at one of the many outlets along the coast. Come sunset, horizon watchers gather on the sand along with cold drinks, fresh fruit and plenty of smiles. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll want to be one of them.
Green Bowl Beach
If you’re after some uninterrupted quiet and unprecedented exploration, Green Bowl Beach has got you covered. Romp on over to the Balinese village of Ungasan, where you’ll climb down hundreds of steps along a cliff that lead you to one seriously splendid hideaway. At low-tide, limestone caves protect you from any weather, but there’s definitely sun if you want it. Thanks to its unique locale, Green Bowl Beach is a surfer’s paradise.
Don’t get us wrong—all of Nusa Dua is beautiful, but Geger Beach is our fave. From swimming and suntanning to massages and Bintang drinking, you can easily waste away a day here. With easy accessibility, families love it at Geger.
