Melasti Beach is in the south of Bali and is surrounded by some of the clearest blue water that you’ll find in Bali. Melasti Beach is also known for its incredible towering limestone cliffs which look amazing in photographs. This beach is a must if you’re looking to get away from the busy beaches and spend a day relaxing in the perfect water.
Getting to Melasti Beach
We drove on our scooter from Canggu to Melasti beach. Due to the crazy traffic it took roughly 1 hour, however, without traffic it should only take 40 minutes.
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
The cerulean blue water and towering limestone cliffs make Melasti Beach a picture perfect beach. This is no surprise to local photographers and travelers. Driving through the limestone cliffs is an amazing experience. At every turn you will see large cliff bright faces. Additionally, the lookout spots along the cliffs are a perfect way to appreciate the stunning scenery.
The beach is located far down south away from the popular tourist spots in central Bali. You’ll find that Melasti Beach is the perfect spot to hang out with no crowds. You can rent a tanning bed and lay in the shade all day or you can chill out in the sand. Either way, you’ll want to escape the Bali heat and jump into the clear water. This beach is definitely one of my favourites in Bali because of how beautiful and pristine it really is.
