1. Blue Point Beach
Where is it? Ungasan
What is it? Blue Point Beach, otherwise known as Suluban Beach, is hidden behind rugged limestone formations in Pecatu, near Uluwatu. Admittedly, getting here is something of an oceanic obstacle course – you’ll access the sand via steps and log ramps that traverse slim slits in the rocks – but that just makes the eventual dip in those waters more satisfying.
Why go? You’ve probably never been to a hard-to-find Balinese cave-beach before; change that here. Thanks to its vigorous waves, Blue Point is well suited to surf sessions (less so to swimming and sunbathing); it’s also a popular spot for camping and sunset bonfires.
