Pasut Beach is the best black sand beach in Bali and is currently a hidden gem. Pasut Beach is predominantly filled with locals and you won’t find many tourists around but this black sand beach in Bali is definitely an up and coming hotspot. The best part about Pasut Beach is that vehicles are permitted to drive along the expansive coastline.
How to get to Pasut Beach
This black sand beach in Bali took us roughly 40 minutes to get to without any traffic from Canggu. The drive from Canggu is mainly through local villages and small roads. It’s an enjoyable route as you drive through the villages and see how the locals live and go about their daily routines.
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!

Pasut Beach Entrance Costs
There’s currently no costs to enter or drive along the beach. This is sure to change in the future as this location becomes more popular so be sure to get in there quick!
What to Expect
The road to Pasut Beach will lead you directly onto the black sand. The beach is quiet with only a few locals relaxing, bathing and swimming along the beach. Additionally, there is only one small convenience store in the area and a single food cart selling corn on a cob.
Pasut Beach is a popular spot for driving along the long stretch of black sand. It’s an incredible experience, especially during sunset, to be able to take the motorcycle out. We had a ton of fun with our motorbike and spent the whole afternoon messing about as the sun set behind the ocean.
Riders of all experience levels will still be able to enjoy the picturesque coastline. Driving on sand will take a bit of getting used to if its your first time. Start slow and work your way up as it can be easy for the wheels to slip out. There are also tour companies that offer group quad biking along the beach.
Overall, this black sand beach in Bali is an unforgettable experience and one that I recommend for anyone visiting Bali.
Photography Tips for the Black Sand Beach in Bali
To the left of the beach is a palm tree forest and to the right of the beach you’ll find a good instagrammable bendy palm tree that you can climb. Both of these locations look spectacular during sunset hours.
