Balian Beach, Tabanan

3.7
#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.

  • A stunning sunset walk destination, showcases tne sublime West Bali dusk...a romantic destination for couples and just a few minutes drive if you're staying in Medewi.... great proposal spot!!! .  more »
  • 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.

  • Here Bali has a beautiful coastline with a number of resorts a eateries with views of the beach. This coastline lends itself especially for surfing on the higher golf.

Where to stay in Tabanan

Options for accommodations on your Tabanan holiday are as diverse as the geography of the region itself. The town of Tabanan, from which the region takes its name, has a few options, but you're better off looking elsewhere if you want to see the area's best sights. Head up north and stay in an eco-resort near Mount Batukaru, or base yourself in the old town of Mengyi for easy access to the Taman Ayun temple complex. If you want something more cultural, go for a homestay among the region's central rice paddy fields. While Tabanan's coastline remains less developed than that of many other regions in Bali, you can find some excellent luxury beach resorts, especially around Kerambitan.
