Nyang Nyang Beach is well known for its multiple shipwrecks which make for a perfect photo opportunity. Nyang Nyang Beach is also one of Bali’s least visited beaches due to its location in the south and 30 minute walk to reach from the top of the cliff.
Getting to Nyang Nyang Beach
We left Canggu at 2pm and headed to Nyang Nyang Beach where we arrived just after 3:30pm. The long 1.5 hour drive can be very challenging through the crazy traffic. We would recommend only driving yourself on a scooter if you’re confident.
Nyang Nyang Beach entrance fee
When you arrive you will see a big white resort where you can park your scooter outside for 2K IDR. There are small shops near the parking area where you can buy snacks and drinks. You will definitely need plenty of water for the walk there and back.
What to expect
You’ll see signs that will point you in the direction of Nyang Nyang Beach which will lead you to the start of the walk. You will pass by a few cliff side stalls and local restaurants. The walk consists of steep rocks and dirt so its easy to slip. Be cautious if you are wearing thongs or open shoes. It took us roughly 20 minutes to reach the bottom.
Once there, you’ll find yourself surrounded by tall cliffs and cows. To the right of the beach you will see the shipwrecks.
Unfortunately when we arrived, we found that the pristine beach that we had heard about was littered in hundreds of plastic bottles and rubbish. We don’t think it’s always like this as it is labeled one of Bali’s most stunning beaches. However we think it’s from a recent event and hopefully it will be cleared up soon.
Make sure to finish up just before the sun fully sets as it will be challenging to climb back up in the dark. The walk back up is exhausting in the humidity so be sure to give yourself enough time and energy.
The perfect time to take photos in front of the shipwreck is around 6pm as the lighting lines up perfectly and you will get an amazing orange glow in the background. Around this time, more people start to turn up to take photos as well, so be mindful of other people wanting to get the perfect sunset photo.
