Nyang Nyang Beach Bali – one of the best beaches on the island

Two months in Bali, countless beaches visited and Nyang Nyang Beach is still one of my favorites. This pristine beach, still unknown to many, is perfect for swimming, getting tanned or just admiring the marine life.

With 1.5 kilometer stretch of coastline, Nyang Nyang is definitely one of the best beaches in Uluwatu, if not in Bali. Located in the southern Bukit Peninsula, this beach gets overlooked by tourists due to its location and long trek required to reach it.

When I’m saying that Nyang Nyang Beach Bali is not a touristy beach I really mean it. Don’t expect to find any shops, umbrellas or signs of civilization here. Therefore, make sure to bring your own food and drinks with you.

The best way to reach this beach is by motorbike. As you’ve probably already heard, public transport in Bali is almost non-existent.

Once you’ve parked you motorbike, buy some water or food from the shop near the parking lot (if you haven’t brought any with you) and then follow the signs to the beach. You will have to descend a steep rocky road so make sure to bring some comfortable shoes or slippers with you. Although the road to the beach can be a bit tiring, the views are incredible so don’t hesitate to take a break and admire them.

When you will reach the end of the steep road, take a breath and enjoy the beach: you will most probably have it just for yourself!
