Experience a day of relaxation and activity at Padang Padang Beach, a stretch of coastline where the sand is white, the sea is blue, and the whole scene is neatly framed by rock formations. Head out into the waters to soak up one of the most famous and popular surf spots in the region, or watch from the comfort of one of the beachside restaurants and bars. Well-known in the tourist and traveler scene, the beach can become very busy at certain times of the year, but the range of activities available and the scenery still make it an attractive choice.

  • It was best for bathing, if flood is. Therefore, we were there around 9/10 pm. Swimming shoes are useful. We have two 50000 are paid. For some, there's also Wi-Fi.

  • This placed is overrated as the movie Eat, Pray and Love was shot here but there are many more beautiful beaches compared to this. You have to walk down couple of steps to get to the beach. If you can walk for couple of minutes on either side you can get to less crowded areas and chill for some time. There were many Surfers trying to catch some waves which is cool to look at. If you are a surfer you can give it a shot although the waves were very small should be good for beginners.
  • The beach is way down the entrance. I was there 3 wks ago, May 3rd wk 2018, and they had these cemented stairway down to the beach. It was kind of difficult for persons on a wheelchair to get there, and i think it's also not safe for hyperactive children unless their parents keep a grip on them, one child per adult. Anyway, i saw children swimming when i got there so it was a relief that it's also a child friendly place, in some way. I saw families enjoying the sand and the beach, but it's mostly couples that decorate the shore sunbathing under the heat of the sun. 😉
  • Small but beautiful beach. Nice for an afternoon. When I went in March 2018, it was super crowded but fine. I didn't think it was anything special but the water was mostly clean and the monkeys were fun the watch walking and climbing around the jungle.
  • Very good surfing beach. Before coming to Bali, I heard a lot about this beach stating it's world famous. I'd to visit it . in Aug 2017, I stopped over at Uluwatu and decided to have a walk as I had less time for taking any surfing lessons. The beach is clean and beautiful the water justifies it. The waves are ideal saw many surfers. The only thing I realized is the entry fees. Parking they charge unlike other beaches well it won't burn a hole, it's about 0.5$.
  • The way down is very small but the beach wont make you disappointed. So amazing view, clean and clear water.
