Bali’s Beach Getaways

Asia, Indonesia

Kuta Beach

When people hear the word Bali, I am pretty sure that they will most likely think of the beach. Well, indeed Bali has lots of kinds of beaches. You want a beach with white sand stretching impossibly long? Got it. Or you want a more idyllic beach with turquoise water? Checked. Or simply a secluded beach, far enough from any crowd? Don’t worry! Or a beach which is hidden from the rest of the island by a massive cliff? Yes, yes, yes..Bali has them all!

Kuta Beach, Another View

During my recent trip to Bali, I visited only a few of Bali’s beautiful beaches. However, I did go to different types of beaches in order to feel different sensation. First I went to Kuta, undoubtedly the most well-known beach in Bali. Stretching hundreds or probably thousands of meters long, Kuta offers the most lively entertainment and accommodation in Bali. World hotel chains, restaurants, lounges, clubs, stores and malls are located side by side along the Kuta and Legian shoreline.

Entrance to Padang Padang Beach

The next day I went to a more secluded beach: Padang Padang (yes, it has its name repeated) which sits in the southern part of Bali near Pecatu region, only 20 minutes away from the majestic Uluwatu temple (more about this place in other post). To get to the beach you have to take the stairs which go down through a small cave-like opening which eventually ends to the beach itself. Compared to Kuta, this place is considerably less crowded. Soak yourself in the turquoise water and enjoy the calmness of this place.

Idyllic Padang Padang Beach

On my last day, I went to the most spectacular beach I’ve ever been to. A beach which is hidden behind a massive cliff and with a dream-like environment. But, that needs a dedicated post for the story and pictures. Stay tuned!

  2. Each & every day I can see your writing skill is growing exponentially! You should consider being a professional writer, a copy-writer or anything with writing, you have the talent dude!

    Quit the banking industry and unleash that writing beast inside! 😀



    • Oh wow!!! thanks man! But seriously, I don’t think my writing skill has reached that level. I have read far better articles on the blogosphere.
      But again, thanks! And about your last statement, big LOL…I’ll take that into consideration then.


      • Hahaha.. Well you know me, I always laugh at anything, good or bad.. Yours is definitely a good one! 😀 Don’t take it too much.. 😉

        Good luck and happy travelling! (For when you’re travelling).

    • Go there before more and more people know it! 🙂 Oh and by the way, the name is actually Padang Padang (intentionally repeated).
