Find the best beaches in Bali
White Sand Beach (Pasir Putih) – best for road trippers
Pasir Putih, also known as White Sand Beach, is a remote, off-the-beaten-path beach that rewards the most adventurous of road trippers. Located on the East Coast of Bali, near to the village of Candidasa, it stands out with its pristine soft white sands that dramatically contrast to its volcanic black sand neighbours. When you see the “white sand beach” sign, follow the dirt track until you reach the carpark. You’ll spot the line up of local seafood BBQ stalls (that is perfect for a sea view lunch) and the clear waters that make White Sand Beach a lovely spot for swimmers, too. Definitely one of our favourite beaches in Bali.
Padang Padang Beach – best for bay-watching
You might recognise this beautiful bay from the ever-famous Eat, Pray, Love movie, where Julia Roberts falls head over heels for her Brazilian hunk. Though Padang Padang is a relatively small beach about 10 minutes north of Uluwatu, the setting is simply stunning. The best time to visit is early in the morning around sunrise when you can see Padang Padang in all its dazzling, natural glory, and before the throng of visitors descend on this spot in the hope of spotting Ms Roberts.
Suluban Beach – best for secret swims
When it come to finding the best beaches in Bali, Suluban Beach is a true hidden treasure, and great for a secret swim. Set against stunning dramatic cliffs, the water here is as turquoise as it gets. To access this little piece of paradise, you’ll need to walk down the steps at Uluwatu, through the caves and onto the sand. Remember, when it’s high tide this swimming spot is inaccessible, so you’ll need to check the tide times for your trip here, and don’t forget to pack your bathers.
Bingin Beach – best for boho vibes & epic surf
Look out for the signs made of recycled wood, or follow the small groups of Bali’s cool crowds with surf boards in-hand and the lack of shoes or sandals on their feet. Bingin Beach is a boho hideaway that’s hard to find unless you know where you’re going, or who to follow. With perfect waves and small sandy coves for swimming at low tide, this cliff-base beach is a favourite for Bali’s sun soakers and surfers. There are some great healthy cafes here too, perfect for a post-surf refuel and Insta-ready sunsets.
