Balian Beach, Tabanan

3.6
#6 of 17 in Parks in Tabanan
A perfect spot for surfing, Balian Beach impresses with black sand and powerful, billowing waves. Because of its location at the mouth of the Balian River, the large quantities of water pouring out into the sea combined with strong currents make it difficult to swim here. If you are not up for surfing, you can enjoy the scenery from one of the many cafes and restaurants that line the coast. Alternatively, take a relaxing walk along the usually quiet beach and explore the surrounding nature. If you don't bring your own surfboard, you can rent one on the coastline.

  • The place is very quiet, friendly but for surfing... The beach is really very dirty, many trash, a lot of plastic waste (bag, tongues, toothpaste tubes, and even a computer!). Housing around wastewater flow directly into the sea. It's a shame, local pick up Driftwood but the garbage did not seem to bother them! The water has a Brown/muddy color. I got an ear infection (the first in 39 years) after a week of surfing on the beach. I recommend really, except for 2/3 surf sessions.
