Padang-Padang Beach, Bali

Padang-Padang beach was one of the first beaches I head right to in Bali. I read it somewhere that it is one of the secretive best beaches in Bali[1], though it turns out not that secretive anymore, it is still one of the best.

This beautiful beach is surrounded by big rocks and overgrown plants and monkeys. The beach is covered with huge rocks and small caves for exploration and when the tide is high, it is also good for swimming. Just beware of sharp corals and sea urchins.

Located close to the Uluwatu temple in the southwest of Bali. If you are heading from Kuta or Ubud, just ride to the west and down the coastal line.

If the crowd is not a problem, come here for the long sandy bays of golden sand. With all year consistent surf break, it is popular for surfers. Non-surfers come here to soak up the vibe and relax on the beach. Currents may be strong but swimming is possible with some care and sticking to the shallow waters.padang-padang-beach-bali-1 Padang-Padang Beach, Bali

All year round is a good time to go to Padang-Padang beach. If the sun is out, the more reason to get there as soon as possible, be it to surf or just to soak it all in.

You would need to get pass the narrow passage and steep steps to this hidden paradise. If you are coming by car or a bike, there is a parking space available before the steps at the beach entrance.
