One of the things that people want to visit on their first trip to Bali is the beaches. If you don’t know where to stay in Bali, and what are the best beaches to visit in Bali in 2019, here is a list compiled from experience of visiting a lot of them during a period of three years.
Nyang Nyang Beach
Perhaps you haven’t heard about it, and I can’t blame you because it might well known to surfers, locals, people living in Bali or people who come here for paragliding. But this beach is also perfect when you feel you want to get away from the traffic, from the busy side of Bali, relax, read a a book and have the whole beach to yourself.
This beach is so untouched, raw and beautiful. Seen from above, it feels like you’re castaway. It’s located in the south of Bali, in the Uluwatu area, and part of the reason why not many people come here is that it’s not so easily reachable.
You can go down if you trek for about half an hour, and you can start from the villa Plenilunio. Most of the times, you will see no one there but yourself. There are no stalls, no vendors, so bring enough water with you if you want to stay for sunset. The spot is definitely one of the least visited ones, but it is perfect if you want to surprise someone and just be on a deserted beach with them or just enjoy a walk on a long empty stretch of coastline.
If you choose to go paragliding, you will see stunning views of the beach from above. I highly recommend this, as it is one of the most thrilling experiences and a good way to see the beautiful cliffs of Uluwatu.
Just one hour drive away (if there’s little traffic) from Canggu, or Kuta, Uluwatu beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Bali. Once you reach the parking lot, you have to go down through some bars,and go past Single Fin.
Uluwatu beach is located between Bingin and Padang Padang and though it’s in a popular area, there’s not a lot of people around. We were there in the weekend during the day and there were just a couple of people besides us.
The amazing thing about this part is that is have a lot of almost hidden sides. You can go underneath cliffs to reach other sides of the beach, or go down the stairs from the beach towards Pantai Suluban. It is without doubt one of the best Bali beaches to visit in 2019. And you will tell me after you’ll see it for yourself!
Suluban Beach is located in Uluwatu. There are plenty of beaches to explore while in Uluwatu but this one is a bit more hidden. It is in the coastal area of Labuan Sait and next to the famous surfer place of Padang Padang.
Seseh Beach, Mengwi
This is one of the beaches where I’ve witnessed the most incredible sunset of my life. It was back when we stayed in an Airbnb in Mengwi and we discovered we had a beautiful empty beach a couple of minutes away from us. This might not come across when you are doing your Bali itinerary, but it is one of the best beaches to visit in Bali in 2019.
