Bingin Beach is one of the many Uluwatu beaches located in the south of Bali. It is popular for its surf, unique rock formations, luxury villas and restaurants that overlook the ocean. This beach is most commonly known to instagrammers for having large rock formations which look great in photos. The many beach front restaurants are also a great place to take photos or to watch the sunset.
How to get to Bingin Beach – Uluwatu Beaches
From Canggu it takes roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes depending on traffic. As you start to approach the beach, follow the signs that lead you to the carpark. From the carpark it’s a 10 minute walk down a few 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 is a gorgeous, quiet beach, while still having plenty of villas nearby. This spot isn’t the most popular for swimming in comparison to the other Uluwatu beaches. Swimming at Bingin Beach is a bit tricky due to all the coral and rocks along the ocean floor, although if you watch your step it’s still perfect to quickly cool off in the water.
If you’re not keen on lying in the sun, there are plenty of large rocks which you can sit under to get away from the heat. Surfing is popular at this beach due to the great surf conditions and is the main reason why people choose this beach over other Uluwatu beaches.
The most popular rock formation is located to the left of the beach. You can get some creative and different angles by walking up the stairs nearby. When we went it was low tide which unfortunately meant we didn’t get as much of the gorgeous beach water in the shot and instead got all the coral. Whether you visit at low or high tide, the photos will still turn out great.
