Nusa Dua Beach is very clean, with waters as blue as the sky, painted with coral gardens and exciting surfable waves in the background – a beach that accommodates everyone. If you are a frequent visitor you may want to find new, secret locations to explore.
Luckily there are a few ‘secret’ beaches in Nusa Dua where you can escape the common crowd to experience the shorelines in seclusion. Don’t share these secrets with anyone!
1. Sawangan Beach
Sawangan beach is a less common destination for beach goers. Most crowds are attracted to the mega beach club that is visible in the far distant south, but apart from that, very few shops and restaurants are found here, making the location relatively more secluded.
2. Taman Sari Beach
Traveling a little south of Sawangan Beach is Taman Sari Beach, hidden from afar by lush vegetation. Tourists don’t often come here because they mistake the beach for lacking a beach due to so much green. Lie in the sand underneath the shade in peace, knowing that you’re one of the few to know its secrets.
3. Geger Beach
On Geger beach, you can be amazed at how the calm water surrounding the bay is actually responsible for the beautiful cliff cuts. A Balinese temple was constructed on one of the clifftops, to add into the awesome factor.
4. Gunung Payung Beach
Gunung Payung beach is the ultimate hidden beach of southeastern Bali. It is relatively more challenging to access this beach. The only access is through Gunung Payung Cultural Park in Kutuh, and there will be a road that zig-zags down the grassy sloping plains.
After a couple hundred flights of stairs, you reach the bottom. Taking a look back on where you came from, you can see how the hillside connects with the surrounding hills that drop down to the water below. Many are covered with lush vegetation, making the area windy and full of fresh air.
