How to get to Bingin Beach Bali
Bingin Beach is located in Uluwatu in the south of Bali and is roughly a 1 and a half hour drive from Canggu. To reach Bingin Beach, the easiest option would be to hire a moped and drive yourself. You can rent a moped for around 50K IDR ($5AUD) per day. The drive down south can be quite busy and chaotic, so if you’re not a confident driver, the next best option would be to hire a driver. Prices vary although can sometimes be expensive. From the carpark the walk should take you just under 10 minutes down some concrete stairs.
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!

What to expect
Bingin Beach Bali is a gorgeous, quiet beach which has plenty of nearby villas, bars and restaurants. It’s a perfect beach to spend a day and even to watch a sunset from the many clifftop bars. This beach has beautiful water and sand, although swimming can be a bit tricky due to all the coral and rocks along the ocean floor. If you manage to visit when the tide is just right, you should be able to just miss the coral on the floor. The vibe of the beach in incredibly laid back so whether you’re having a surf or laying in the sand, you’re sure to have a relaxing day.
There are no beach umbrellas or beach beds along the sand. If you want to get out of the sun, you can head towards the large boulders which provide plenty of shade. Additionally you can sit inside one of the many cafes.
Another popular reason why people visit this beach is to take photos infront of the unique rock formation. The rock formation is located to the left of the beach. For a super unique perspective, you can head up the stairs which are close by. From here you have the perfect vantage spot! It’s best to visit at high tide to take the photo, as low tide exposes all the dark mossy rocks.
