Balian Beach, Tabanan
(3.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Balian Beach and other attractions in Tabanan using our Tabanan trip itinerary maker.

  • The beach is quite rocky and there was the usual rubbish there that is dumped mostly by the river. The water is more for surfing than swimming and not for anyone who is not a confident swimmer. 
  • I found this place by chance as the rain caught up to me while driving a motor scooter down the west coast down from Gilimanuk. Actually a nice lady named Wayan found me as I looked lost and confused....  more »
