What would you do in Bali? Looking for Bali’s trendiest place for sunset definitely is a must, but aside of all the latest trends, you must never forget Bali’s original beauty. The best way to enjoy it will be by going to Bali’s best treasure, beach. If you are staying at Alindra Villa, you are going to enjoy going to these beaches around Jimbaran and Uluwatu Area:
Originally known as a hidden beach, Pandawa Beach offer white sand beach with clear blue water, surrounded by dramatically cut natural cliffs decorated with various white stone statues depicting Mahabharata hero characters. While it used to be considered inaccessible due to how hard it is to reach the beach area, Pandawa Beach now is a widely popular beach in Uluwatu area, located at Bali’s Southern Peninsula.
If you are looking for more secluded beach, Green Bowl is the right answer for you. Located approximately 75 metres or more than 300 steps down verdant cliff in the village of Ungasan, Green Bowl got its name from the tourists and surfers who went here for sunbathing or surfing. Unlike other beaches, you can find many covered place to hide from the sun here, either between the trees or caves surrounding the beach, but make sure to bring your own food and beverage because you won’t be able to find any street vendor or restaurant here.
What makes Tegal Wangi unique is because it’s located in plain sight, yet the beach itself is called a ‘hidden’ beach. This beach is considered to still be a ‘virgin’ beach due to the relatively difficult way to access. You can enjoy the beauty of this beach from the top, but if you want to get a closer look, you must go down carefully through their stony walkway, so please reconsider if you want to take kids or elderlies here. However, Tegal Wangi is widely popular among wedding photographers due to its natural beauty and idyllic panorama.

To reach this beach, you must go through around 300 steps down but once you got there, the white sand and sparkling blue water will capture your heart right away. The current is quite big so it will be risky for you to swim too far from the sea shore, but surfers love this place do to its tranquil atmosphere, clean area and big waves.
Balangan beach got its popularity between local and international surfers due to its gorgeous half-kilometre stretch of golden sand, right between vegetated limestone cliffs and reef with one of the longest left-hander breaks in Bali. Unlike Thomas and Green Bowl beach, Balangan Beach is easier to access, but keep in mind that as it is also known as a surfer’s paradise without lifeguards, you must be very careful if you want to swim here.
