Many tourists imagine Bali Island as a completely fabulous place with paradise beaches, azure sea, alone bungalows and photogenic palm trees, and travel agencies are actively supporting this image of Bali.
it’s a stunning island if you don’t have any illusions of paradise beaches.
Before coming to Bali, we planned to stay close to the sea. We read various reviews about the beaches in Bali and decided to write the most detailed one.
Enjoy our wide review about all beaches in Bali Island.
Kuta beach is the closest beach to the airport. It is the most popular tourist destination in Bali. It is really a perfect place for those who like bars, clubs, surf, parties, and nightlife.
Kuta is an ideal place to learn how to surf. Here you can rent a surfboard for 5$ ( for 2-3 hours). You can also find here some heaps cheap options for drinks.
There are always a lot of people in Kuta and traffic jams don’t stop even at night.
It is actually a continuation of Kuta, but a more respectable place. Legian Beach is the second most popular tourist destination after Kuta. It is a great surfing beach. We met in Legion beach a lot of surfers, but they are fewer than in Kuta, and the sea is more suitable for surfing than for swimming.
On Saturday and Sunday evenings, the beachfront is packed with tourists, locals, and motorbikes. There are also a lot of restaurants near the beach with very cheap and tasty food.
Seminyak is a beach resort area in South Bali with luxury villas, hotels, restaurants and spa salons. It is the most fashionable beach in Bali and a quiet and prestigious place.
Seminyak beach is wide and spacious and very famous for its sunsets. This white sandy beach is favored by the high waves that are ideal for surfing.
By the way, you can see here a lot of red flags. They are an important part of the amazing landscape.
Canggu is a small village and 10km beach on the south coast of Bali. Canggu beach is very beautiful and wide with big waves. But this beach is not suitable for swimming because of high waves. You can go swimming to the nearby beaches or swim in a pool.
It is the best place for surfers to stay in Bali. Here waves are stronger and higher than in Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak. This is a great option for those who love surfing, walking along the beach, listening to the sound of the waves and watching the sunsets.
There is a famous temple on the shore, which stands between the Echo beach and Changgu beach.
Echo beach is so perfect for people who want to live near the sea in a villa in the peace and quiet. Villas in Echo Beach are reasonably priced. From Echo beach you can go to restaurants and bars, that are located in Kuta and Seminyak- it will not take so much time.
