No doubt, now Bali has become the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia. Offering a variety of interesting tourist attractions, from beach tours, mountain tours, adventure tours, nature tours, to cultural tourism and shopping tours, Bali is the most complete tourist spot in Indonesia and is also suitable for everyone.
Of the many tourist attractions in Bali, the most famous is the beach tourist spot. What are the beach attractions in Bali that must be visited? Check out the following discussion:
1. Kuta Beach
Kuta Beach is a tourism icon of Bali, no one comes to Bali and does not know Kuta Beach. This beach resort which is located not far from the airport has a long and curvy coastline, so you can stroll until you are satisfied on this beach. In addition, this beach which is nicknamed ‘sunset beach’ also offers a surfing experience suitable for beginners. Because it is very crowded with visitors, you can easily find shopping places, places to eat, hotels, souvenir shops, and others around Kuta Beach.
2. Padang Padang Beach
Padang Padang Beach is a beautiful beach, but not very well known for Indonesians. This beach that is hidden behind a cliff is located in the Pecatu area, not far from Uluwatu. To be able to reach this beach, you have to pass through a cave that has to take turns because the width is only enough for 1 person. Although not as big as and along Kuta Beach, Padang Padang Beach offers a very unique and clean beach beauty that is included in the list of beach attractions in Bali that must be visited.
3. Lovina Beach
Similar to Padang Padang Beach, Lovina Beach is also not very well known for the colors of the Indonesian state, but this beach, which is located in northern Bali, offers a very different experience from other beaches in Bali. The main attractions offered by this black sand beach are dolphins. When you arrive at Lovina Beach, the first thing you will see is the giant dolphin statue which is the icon of this beach.
To be able to see dolphins playing and jumping around in their natural habitat, you must come to this beach in the morning, if you can before sunrise. The morning you come, the greater your chance to play with the dolphins because during the day the dolphins will swim away from the beach. The number of dolphins that you can see on Lovina Beach is not only 1-2, but tens to hundreds of dolphins, it’s a shame to miss it.
To be able to enjoy this incomparable experience, you have to ride a fishing boat with a capacity of about 6 people per boat. No need to worry about drowning because this boat has been specially designed for choppy seas, besides that you will also wear adequate safety equipment.
4. Jimbaran Beach
Jimbaran Beach is not as busy as Kuta Beach during the day, but at night Jimbaran Beach will be filled with visitors. Jimbaran Beach is a beach that offers culinary tours on the beach, therefore don’t be surprised if there are many restaurants lined up on this beach. The mainstay menu of these restaurants is of course seafood whose ingredients are still fresh because they are directly obtained from fishermen around this beach.
Apart from eating in the restaurant, you can also eat on the soft beach sand because there are many tables and chairs lined up along this beach resort. At nightfall, several restaurants here will serve live music to complement your extraordinary dinner experience.
5. Dreamland Beach
Dreamland Beach is a beach resort in Bali, which is located in southern Bali, precisely in the Pecatu area. This beach is surrounded by a row of high cliffs and is only 30 minutes away from Kuta Beach. The atmosphere and condition of Dreamland Beach is similar to Kuta Beach, but with a smaller number of visitors so it is perfect for those of you who want to find peace.
The origin of the name of this beach is quite unique. Dreamland Beach or in Indonesian means ‘dream land’ was given this name because previously the local people hoped that the tourism and housing projects in this location could provide them with better work space, but unfortunately in the end this big project was hampered and not completed.
6. Pandawa Beach
Pandawa Beach, which is known as the secret beach in Bali, is a beach resort in Bali that is suitable for those of you who do not like the crowded atmosphere. The beach, which is located behind a limestone cliff, has a sunrise view that deserves to be enjoyed. Pandawa Beach is located in Kutu Selatan District, approximately 18 KM from the airport. Even though it is not far away, there is no public transportation that passes around the location so you have to use a private vehicle, taxi, or rent a vehicle.
7. Sanur Beach
If Kuta Beach is touted as the ‘sunset beach’, then Sanur Beach is a ‘sunrise beach’ that is no less interesting. This beach, which is located in the eastern city of Denpasar, has the characteristics of calm waves so you cannot play surfing at this beach resort. The calm waves also indicate that the waters around Sanur Beach are perfect for snorkeling and diving for beginners. The activity that is very popular at this beach resort in Bali is enjoying the sunrise while swimming in the calm sea.
