Dreamland Beach Bali

Dreamland beach can be found in the south of Bali. After the development of New Kuta and the Pecatu Graha Resort much has changed over the recent years. However, Dreamland beach Bali remains a favourite among international and local visitors, Dreamland also continues to be a favourite surf break. With the close amenities, azure seas, golden sands this is a beach that should be on your hit list

Always a Favourite – Dreamland Beach Bali

Padangbai and Blue Lagoon

Better known because of its principal seaport in east Bali, Padangbai consists of a set of beaches which are excellent for day trippers, as well as diving and snorkeling. Blue Lagoon, a little bay northeast of the port city is a 60m expanse of white sand. Another is Bias Tugel, a 130m long strip south west of the port, with blue and serene water most times of the year. Here you can unwind on the sand or under the shade of a parasol on deck chairs. The beach closer to the harbour is also calm, particularly on its eastern end, and you also can appreciate pretty great swimming here, also.

Blue lagoon one of many beaches in Bali

Kuta Beach

The reason many people visit Kutais the beach. It’s still a gentle curve of light sand that stretches for 8km from Tuban to Canggu. The waves draw beginner and seasoned surfers alike.  It’s also the place for the much-lauded Kuta sundown; at their bloodred finest in April, but streaky-pink during any time of year and the things sunsets are made of – whether you select cocktails in a trendy bar or simply a cold Bintang on plastic seats.

Kuta Beach remains the best beach in Bali

Balangan

Balangan, a favourite surf area is on the north side of the cliff that forms the touch hole 15 of the New Kuta Golf course. The name Balangan itself was believed to apply to the entire shoreline including Dreamland, before surfers nicknamed the special shoreline region south of the cliff. Several beach shacks serve straightforward local surfer meals chilly refreshments and beer. Getting Balangan is simple, when compared with other shores along the coastline of the Bukit peninsula, with only a dozen ways down from the limestone hill. Balangan is one of the best options in the Uluwatu area if you want to enjoy the beach and the waves. While many people may have heard of Uluwatu Beach, the truth is that the actual beach at Uluwatu is only a small path of sand… if you want to watch the surfers on this famous break, head to one of the cliff top cafes.

Suluban Beach Uluwatu

Suluban Beach is among Bali’s most exceptional, reached via log ramps and steps through narrow openings in the stone and hidden by natural limestone formations. Canopied by a looming cliff face, this little shore might not be perfect for sunbathers, but is perfect for surfers to paddle outside and ride next reef breaks, including the famous Uluwatu. Also nicknamed Blue Point, the accessibility of Suluban is steep and narrow down crags and rocky steps. The view is really rewarding when you arrive at the sand.

Stunning Beaches in Bali

Amed

Amed crosses seven distinct beachfront hamlets: Jemeluk, Amed, Bunutan, Lipah, Selang, Banyuning and Aas. All are fishing hamlets, thus the classic scene of traditional jukung outriggers lining the shore. Renowned as a dive area, the quiet shorelines with spectacular sunrise are a must see if you are staying in this area. Among the highlights of region that you will find your way on back from Amed is conventional salt farming in the region of Purwakerti. A two and-a half hour’s journey back to the south will offer the chance to see more of the stunning island of Bali in the Karangasem and Klungkung regencies, such as the Tirta Gangga water gardens and the Goa Lawah Temple.

Amed is home to many beaches in Bali

Pemuteran

A  Lovina before tourism took hold, Pemuteran leads a double life as a fishing village and a low key vacation escape. The beach here is a thread of biscuit and black colour sand which arcs for a kilometre or so. Pemuteran is known for its snorkelling and diving. Within easy reach of the beach here more than a dozen reefs await discovery. In fact, Pemuteran has the largest shallow reef area in Bali and the calm waters make it perfect for everybody. If you make the trip, you’ll be rewarded with rich a diverse marine life including turtles, giant clams, manta rays and even occasionally a whale shark.

Pasir Putih

Nine kilometers northeast from Candi Dasa lies the magnificently wonderful Pasir Putih (White Sand Beach Bali). The acccess, through a rutted and steep trail, is a part of the allure: the black-and-whitish-sand bay feels wild and distant, backed by forest remnants and palms, and sheltered by rocky headlands. The aquamarine water is perfect for swimming and the reef just offshore offers good snorkeling.

Green Bowl

 Green Bowl is a hidden jewel on the southern shore of Bali. To access the beach you need to descend hundreds of steps. At the bottom there are also several bat caves. You will find variations in the source of the name for Green Bowl, inspired by the sight of green seaweed, the name and corals exposed at low tide.  Another reason is owing from the name of the firm slated to develop a resort there.

Greenbowl Uluwatu Beach

Padang Padang

Amongst the favourite major surf breaks of the island, the white sand beach of Padang offers an excellent spot for sunbathing and doing simply nothing. Local sea food warungs serve broiled fresh grabs-of the day. It’s a pleasant stopover if you’ve time along your visit to the Uluwatu Temple nearby. The Rip Curl Pro surf competition is held here every August, at which time you’ll find the beach and surrounding area crowded with pro surfers and their supporters.

Sundays Beach Club

Another private beach in south Bali, Sunday’s is accessed via a funicular down the cliff face. A payment is required, but some of this is redeemable against food and beverages. The sea here is clear blue and inviting for a swim or snorkel. You may also enjoy Mediterranean cuisine with ocean views served from the semi open kitchen under a, thatched roof. The club is an excellent choice for a laid back day on clean and quiet beach, with plenty of beach activities available to keep you and your family or friends active.

Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua is a well kept resort area in the south of Bali.  What attracts most visitors to Nusa Dua is the beach: a long thread of mainly light golden sand, if you are swimming although a reef is exposed at low tide. Midway down the coastline, the land blossoms out into isles, or two small clumps, with a temple standing on each one, and it is after these two island that the area gets its name. You’ll find many bars by the beach and beach clubs in the high end hotels that are found here. Also in Nusa Dua, Geger Beach offers world class surfing and a clam lagoon for swimming and snorkeling.

Nusa Dua is home of the best beaches in Bali

Yeh Gangga Beach

The coast west of Tabanan is a hardly-touched expanse of black sand famous for unusual rock formations. The most appealing (and developed) section is at Yeh Gangga, The currents make the sea too dangerous for swimming, however it’s a remarkable scene, punctuated by enormous stone, and the beach stretches for miles in both ways. Here you’re really find yourself away from the crowds and amongst some of Bali’s finest natural beauty.

Balian Beach

As ever in Bali, surfers got here first – Balian Beach has the most consistent left hand breaks in West Bali, with bigger waves breaking behind off a ledge and smaller breaks inshore. But whether surfer or not this mellow hamlet might well be the most comfortable getaway on the west shore; there’s no hustle, no tourist stores, only low key lodgings and isolated luxury villas, a few warungs and a beach bar, and the awareness of a shared secret.

Balian is one of the best beaches in Bali.

We used Bali Villas and More for our recent stay, we found the perfect villa for our family and would highly recommend it. After being to Bali a number of times it was such a different experience being in a Villa instead of resort. I wouldn't look back, the staff, tips and service were exceptional!!
