Indonesia is one of the getaways of choice of tourists who not just want to escape the freezing weather of Europe or America or to undergo a yoga teacher training course, but also for those who want to spend a day on the beaches in Bali to surf, dive, or just laze around.
There are plenty of beaches in Bali–from Sanur and Jimbaran to Kuta and Nusa Dua. However, there are a handful of beaches that every tourist should take note of when they plan a getaway to the island of the gods.
Sanur Beach in Bali
If Kuta is the life of the party, Sanur would be its exact opposite. The peaceful atmosphere surrounding Sanur Beach is perfect for families and lovers looking to escape the hectic haze of Kuta Beach. Sanur has calm and shallow waters perfect to laze the hours away on a tropical island.
There are many luxury resorts, spas, and restaurants lining the shore of Sanur. There are also budget-friendly guesthouses, warungs (restaurants), and dive shops inside the town.
Seminyak is the beach sandwiched between Legian and Kuta, but compared to the other two, Seminyak is the best one. The long stretch of sand and plenty of activities on offer make it a choice getaway for surfers and beach bummers alike. Wait till the dusk to experience the beautiful sunset on Seminyak Beach.
Padang Padang Beach
Padang Padang Beach rose to fame after the movie Eat, Pray, Love shot a few scenes in this idyllic beach. Big rocks, overgrown plants, and monkeys make this beach naturally beautiful and scenic.
Getting to this secluded beach is an adventure in itself. Visitors must pass through narrow passages and steep steps to get to this secluded paradise. More and more tourists visit this beach because of he movie, but it manages to maintain its untouched feel.
Nusa Dua Beach
Nusa Dua has a variety of luxury resorts built around it, but the resorts manage to intertwine with the natural landscape. Towering palm trees, mangroves, orchids, golden sand, and clear blue waters all make for a postcard worthy beach. The clear waters make Nusa Dua Beach an ideal place to go for snorkeling.
Nyang Nyang Beach
Hidden deep within Nusa Dua is a hidden paradise. Very few tourists make their way to this hidden gem. One must go up and down a hill and go through a forest to get to this beach. The adventure is rewarded once you see this enchanting paradise. Meeting the locals who are harvesting seaweed while you enjoy the scenery all make for an authentic Balinese escapade.
These are only a handful of beaches that a wanderer can discover during a trip to Bali. There are many more beaches and hidden gems on the island of the gods. Candidasa Beach, for example, may not be as famous as the others, but it’s where you can have the yoga teacher training course Bali. It’s private and quiet, and provides you the best venue for learning how to teach yoga and hypnotherapy.
