If you ask me the synonyms of Bali, I would say swaying tropical palms, stunning beaches, delectable cuisine, ancient Hindu culture and the mesmerizing landscapes are some of the many that are popping in my head right now. Yes, Bali is the perfect concoction of all these that makes this Indonesian island a perfect holiday destination. But in the end of the day, it is the beaches of Bali that steals the show.

Well, that is why before discussing about the numerous beach options that you have during Bali tours, you need to be clear on certain things. Before anything else, decide what you like in a beach. Do you want it deserted or crowded? Would you like the beach next to some swanky restaurants and bars? What should be the color of the sand- golden, white or black? No, I haven’t lost it. When it comes to Bali and beaches, all your wants and desires can be taken care of. Now, let us find out a bit more about these beautiful creations of God.
Padang Padang Beach
It is one of the best beaches of the Bukit Peninsula. Padang Padang beach is not less than a masterpiece as to reach this beach, you have to go down the stairs through a cave that is a split between two giant rocks. And what welcomes you is clear blue waters and shining, sandy beach. Because of its sheer beauty, Padang Padang Beach can be a bit busy and crowdy. This beach is the abode of several colonies of monkeys, so take care of your stuff.
Sundays Beach/Karma Beach
This is a beautiful private beach that can be easily accessed by Karma Kandara Beach Club and Sundays Beach Club. To visit these beaches, you don’t have to stay at these places; just pay a nominal fee and relax on one of the most beautiful beaches of Bali. This is one of those beaches that have the swankiest restaurants surrounding the beach. If you want to spend a leisurely beach day, then this is the perfect one.
Blue Point Beach
If you dream of surfing on some of the highest waves, then Blue Point Beach or Uluwatu is the one that is must visit. But take care of the high tides as they can be quite dangerous. You have to trek a bit to reach this beach. Moreover, the surrounding areas gives the most panoramic view you have ever seen.
Nusa Lembongan Beach
When you are vacationing in Bali, there are some stunning islands that are worth a visit. Some of them are Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan and these islands house some of the most stunning beaches of Bali. One of the most popular is the Dream Beach on Nusa Lembongan island that is a mere half hour speed boat ride from Sanur.
The Jimbaran Beach of Bali would make you fall in love with Bali. This is one of the rare places from where you never want to leave. With fathomless, turquoise ocean stretched in front of your eyes and swaying palm leaves kissing the white sands, this place is the sheer embodiment of poetry. Moreover, you can also enjoy a couple of drinks and the traditional Balinese food, thanks to the shacks on the beach.
If you are an old soul and want to relax in tranquility, then Pemuteran beach is the perfect destination for you. It is one of the any secluded areas and is situated on the west coast of Bali near Java. In case you are a mountain person, this place is going to take your breath away as you can have the best of both worlds at Pemuteran Beach. While you are there, snorkeling and diving are the two activities that you shouldn’t miss at any cost.
Off the Beaten Track Beaches
Apart from all these, there are several other beaches that are still unexplored and are not known to many. These are off the beaten track beaches and the best way to explore them is with the natives of the island. When you have so many islands to explore,you don’t know what treasure are you going to find the next day.
With that being said, these are some of the many beaches where you can go and simply relax. I had the most memorable time while vacationing in Bali and hope the same for you. In case, if you are planning a trip to Bali and have some concerns, keep checking for more updates.
