Bali Beach: Clubs, Sand & Surf

Aptly named the ‘Island of the Gods’, Bali must surely be on every beach-lovers to-do list. While Bali’s beaches are world-famous, the island also offers lush jungles, a bright green tapestry of rich fields clinging to the mountain slopes, golden shores and a vibrant culture. Steal away to a yoga getaway in the mountains, immerse yourself in the many land and sea sport adventures, or do a little of everything. Bali beach holidays have so much to offer.

The best beaches are to be found in the south of the island conveniently close to the airport. On the east coast of the peninsula, Sanur is protected by a reef, making it perfect for an alluring range of watersports including windsurfing, sailing, parasailing snorkelling and the hottest Bali surf spots.

Probably the most famous beaches are Nusa Dua and TJ Benoa, each with luxurious resorts featuring delightful gardens, swimming pools and direct access to the beach. The winding main road is peppered with restaurants, bars, clubs and water-sport operators, so those looking for beach-side fun will find their place!

On the west coast of the peninsula, you have a choice of three beach villages. Kuta, is home to numerous restaurants, bars and discos and has a vibrant nightlife. If you’re in search of a gentler pace, head to neighbouring Legian which features beautiful Double Six Beach, fun filled Waterbom Bali Water Park and colourful shops, boutiques, and craft markets. A little further on you will find Seminyak, offering a small-town atmosphere and easy tempo, with beaches overlooking lush rice paddy fields - perfect for walks on the beach. Not to be outdone, Seminyak also has a range of cafes and restaurants as well as an active nightlife.

Ubud in Bali’s densely forested interior is regarded as the jewel in the magnificent mountains and is home to temples, holy shrines, bustling craft markets, outdoor restaurants, and verdant rice fields on precipitously steep hills. Be sure to make a day trip to Ubud or better still, stay in one of the many hotels or luxury resorts in the area. 

With its exquisite beaches, rich culture, fabulous cuisine, incredible attractions, and world-class water sports, Bali is a dream holiday destination. The friendly locals, affordable crafts and exciting nightlife are the cherries on top of your Bali beach holiday.
