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.
How to get to Nyang Nyang Beach Bali
Getting to Nyang Nyang Beach is pretty easy, especially if you are using Google Maps. Set your destination to Nyang Nyang Beach and you’re done. From Jl Raya Uluwatu Pecatu Street you will have to turn right if you are coming from Uluwatu Temple and the street will lead you straight to the parking lot.
Nyang Nyang Beach parking fee and entrance: free
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!
About Nyang Nyang Beach Bali
There are so many beautiful beaches in Bali and picking which ones to visit can get pretty difficult. This is why I am going to list all the reasons to visit this beautiful Uluwatu beach.

The first thing you will notice on the seashore are the natural formed pools. These can vary in dimension from 20 centimeters to 3-4 meters. These pools are home to some incredible ecosystems including algae, fish, shells and other living creatures. Just take a few steps into the water and enjoy the amazing nature.

Giving the fact that this beach is 1.5 kilometer long it is perfect to enjoy a walk at sunset with your loved one. Just make sure to bring your own wine and a blanket.

Explore the Nyang Nyang Beach shipwrecks
The famous Uluwatu shipwrecks can be found on Nyang Nyang Beach. You will have to walk a bit to find them but they are really beautiful and worth it. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to see them since it was getting dark when we visited. A good reason to come back
You can enjoy some shade from the sun at the base of the cliffs
Many of Bali beaches don’t have places to hide from the sun on a hot day but Nyang Nyang Beach is an exception. You can easily get some shade and cool off while still enjoying the awesome views.
