Bali is known for its many beaches, varying from black sand to good surf and also lesser known pristine beaches. In this blog we’ll give you our top 6 best Bali beaches!
Where to stay in Bali
There are plenty of popular areas to stay in Bali. For people looking for a base or villa to rent for a while, Canggu is the perfect spot with cafes and restaurants right near the beach. If you’re on holiday for a short amount of time and looking for a hotel, then Kuta or Seminyak is great for clubs, bars and cheap shopping. While in Bali we stayed at Riyuri Guesthouse in Canggu. They have beautiful rooms in a great location so we definitely recommend checking them out!

Nyang Nyang Beach is popular for its multiple shipwrecks which make for a perfect photo opportunity. This beach is also one of Bali’s quietest beaches. This is because of its location in the south and 30 minute walk down from the top of the cliff. This beach is great to visit if you’re after a quiet secluded beach. The beach used to be in pristine condition, although when we visited, the beach was full of rubbish and plastic. We’re unsure wether or not the rubbish is still there. If it isn’t, then it’s the perfect spot to relax on the sand and view the shipwrecks.
