Today you have a great choice of Bali beaches. Kuta is the most famous one, Sanur was the first developed for tourism; now there are many more. Which is the right one for you?
Bali is a top tourist destination and its beaches are definitely famous for their yellow sand and warm blue sea, there are plenty of other attractions available for you too. Before booking your accommodation though decide first what exactly you would like to have. Is a hotel right on the quiet safe beach a must for you? Is it more important to surf during the day and party at night? Are you choosing a budget hotel far from the sea and want to discover hidden beaches with or without surfboard? Here some ideas:
Located on the Southern Peninsula which is very dry, with high cliffs and choppy seas you can find several beautiful beaches. Some boast clean yellow sand and some are hidden below high cliffs. One of them is Dreamland Beach. Here you do not have many hotels in walking distance, it is sort of an insider ‘secret’ beach. There is one restaurant perching on top of the cliff. They offer food, of course, and also a swimming pool. From there you can easily walk down to the beautiful yellow sand.
You can also reach it directly from the main street. The beach itself offers a public toilet and shower; don’t expect much though. This hidden gem is visited by surfers and sun lovers alike.
It used to be a fishing village until Four Seasons built its hotel and bungalows on top of the cliff. Then Intercontinental Hotel constructed their luxury property right next to the sand. The development continued and now there are quite some high end accommodations guests can choose from. Of course, as everywhere in Bali, budget accommodations are available too now, just a bit further inward on small village streets.
A part of this stretch of inviting yellow sand is known as the ‘the’ place to eat fresh seafood. In the evening waiters set long tables in the sand, light torches and fire up their barbeque grills. There is a whole line of restaurants catering to tourists and all keep their fish and shellfish fresh in tanks. You choose what you want to eat; the kitchen staff kills, cleans and cooks them according to your preference. And the food is great on one of the most perfect Bali beaches! Of course, during the day, this is a normal beach like any other of them.
