  • Famous from Eat, Pray, Love, this beach is compact and often crowded. Unless you're a massive fan of the movie, this is one spot you can give a miss. There are plenty of cleaner and quieter beaches...  more »

  • This is a very easily accessible beach. It takes a few 30 stairs to reach the actual beach. The entrance fee is Rp10,000 per head. The entrance has lots of monkeys by the way! So be sure to put your things in a bag first. There are clean toilets outside, so you can change there. The beach itself is very pretty. Clean, white sand and blue waters. There are many large rocks and lots of corals on the shores. The place can get crowded with tourists at times - since it definitely is no hidden beach, but it is not overly popular yet. There were lots of surfers here, and you can also rent surf boards or take surfing lessons here. A nice beach to spend some time at, and it's not too difficult to get there either.
  • Truly magical sea caves to explore, secluded cliffs to climb, sandbars filled with beautiful seashells to collect, and pristine blue waters to swim in. There aren’t too many people here because it’s in a farther location. Only downside is the wild monkeys on the beach itself. Not a good place to sunbathe but if you want to swim this is perfect.
