Bali, a tropical paradise renowned for its vibrant culture and breath-taking landscapes, offers an array of sun-kissed beaches that attract travellers from across the globe. From the serene shores of Sanur to the bustling sands of Kuta, each beach boasts its own unique charm and array of activities. Whether you’re looking to catch the perfect wave, bask on a secluded beach under swaying palm trees, or you’re after the full beach resort experience, Bali’s beach resorts provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable holiday. Dive into the island’s rich traditions, savour local culinary delights, and let the soothing ocean breeze sweep you into a state of pure bliss.

Where are the best beaches to visit in Bali?

With their soft white sand, picturesque sunsets and ideal surfing conditions, Bali’s beaches are some of the best in the entire world. While the entire island has beaches worth visiting, the south of Bali is home to the most beautiful.

The town of Kuta is home to long, white, stunning sand beaches, perfect for taking in an unforgettable Bali sunset. However, this beach is considered the main backpacking beach destination, which is reflected by its lively, vibrant nightlife. If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, head over to Kuta’s neighbour, Seminyak, an excellent all-rounder beach full of luxury resorts. For a quieter alternative, the Sanur, a once-fishing village, is now a peaceful beach resort offering a mix of things to see and explore, day or night. For the 5-star hotel experience, Nasa Dua offers a great beach in a secluded location and idyllic surroundings.

Just south of Kuta, you’ll find Jimbaran Beach, located in the fishing village of Jimbaran. This long beach is home to calm waters, perfect for swimming, and is lined with fish restaurants serving up fresh dishes you won’t want to miss.


Bali cultural sites to visit

All across Bali, you’ll find incredible temples, palaces, and museums, each offering a unique perspective on the local culture. Some of the most popular cultural destinations include Tanah Lot, a distinctive rock formation that supports the Hindu pilgrimage temple Pura Tanah Lot. Taman Ayun Temple is another incredible option, boasting a picturesque garden with distinct water features. In Ubud, the Neka Art Museum showcases work from prolific local artists, and the Tegalalang Rice Terrace is a stunning terraced rice field you won’t want to miss.
