From white sandy beaches and azure waters to hidden coves and dramatic cliffs, Bali is a treasure trove of scenic views. And with so many beaches to choose from, it can be hard to decide which ones are the best. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the 5 best beaches in Bali, perfect for families and couples looking for the perfect beach experience.
Kuta Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Bali, and for good reason. This cream-coloured sand beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and surfing. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, making it the perfect spot to spend a day or night. Families will love the Kidz Club at the Hard Rock Hotel, where kids can enjoy supervised activities while parents relax by the pool or on the beach. Throughout the day, vendors arrive with their wares, while evenings see friendly beach soccer matches, djembe drumming sessions and even fire dancers.
Jimbaran Bay is well-known for its fresh seafood restaurants, which line the beachfront offering spectacular views of the sunset. This is a great spot for couples looking for a romantic dinner or night out. Jimbaran Bay is also great for swimming and snorkelling, with crystal clear water and plenty of colourful fish to see along its unbroken coral reef.
Nusa Dua Beach is located in an exclusive area with luxury hotels and resorts lining the coast. This beach is well-maintained and has plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas. It’s perfect for those who want to relax in luxury surrounded by beautiful scenery, and its tranquility makes it ideal for couples or families. Nusa Dua Beach is also great for swimming, snorkelling, and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). The name Nusa Dua literally means ‘two islands’ which refers to the two small, raised headlands found just off the coast of the peninsula.
This secluded beach can be found down a flight of stairs through a jungle path off Jalan Uluwatu (the southern tip of Bali). Once you reach the bottom, you’ll be rewarded with one of Bali’s most beautiful beaches, featuring soft white sand and stunning blue waters. A word of warning though – this beach can get very crowded during peak times so it’s best to visit early in the day or late in the afternoon if you want to avoid the crowds.
Seminyak Beach is one of Bali’s more popular beaches thanks to its proximity to cafes, restaurants, shops, and spas. It’s perfect for those who want to spend a day relaxing on the beach followed by some pampering at one of Seminyak’s many luxury spa resorts. The waves can be quite strong here so it’s not ideal for swimming but it is great for surfing, boogie boarding, and body boarding.
