Balangan Beach, Bali

A surfing paradise, Balangan Beach is one of the most epic surf spots in Bali, with a magnificent half-kilometer stretch of golden sand between vegetation and limestone cliffs, attracting surfers from all over the world. It has a reef just offshore that creates one of the longest left-handed breaks on the island. Here you can enjoy most of the southwest coast of Bukit along with the nearby breakers of Dreamland, Impossibles, Padang Padang, Suluban and Uluwatu further south.

Get to Balangan.

The coast is accessed by Jalan Pantai Balangan, which is about 7 km west of the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park whose 122m statue (taller than the statue of Liberty, N.Y.) of Vishnu riding the mythological Garuda bird is impossible not to see from far around. Parking is available for motorcycles and cars.
The beach is just a few steps down from the cliff, it’s a good idea to climb the hills beforehand to the lookout for great panoramic angles. Instagrammers will love staying to watch the spectacular sunsets from above while mere mortals will enjoy riding the waves or downing a few at the beach bars.

Balangan Beach and Dreamland are in the same area, distant one kilometer apart and separated by a small headland that serves as the famous 15th hole of the New Kuta golf course. Golf players get the best bird’s eye view of the two beaches and the ocean from there.
