  1. Wanderlust Eva

    Remote and secluded by cliffts, The Nyang-Nyang beach calls for about 20 minutes walk down a lush cliffside to reach it. Its white-sandy beach seems to go on forever  so there is plenty of space to take a quiet stroll and even find a private spot to bathe by yourself. Be mindful of the waves, it can get choppy and no life guards on patrol. Be sure to carry plenty of water and some energy boosters with you, you will need it before your walk back up to the top. No food stalls at the beach area. Walk up is a bit tougher than the way down especially in the Bali heat but you can rent scooter to take you up. Thanks Roni for taking us there! It was such an enjoyable day trip!

    Beautiful white sand beach, so many times of sea shells. Unfortunately, trash is everywhere. Best enjoyed with friends, bring your own beers, and enjoy the sunsets when weather permits. Thank you Roni for taking us there!

      You’re welcome.
      Thank you for describing Nyang nyang beach.
      I agree.
      Cold beer and sunny day is suitable on the beach.
      Also sunset here is wonderful.
      But, you need to walk up in the dark after that.

  3. Delita

    Nyang-nyang beach is among the collection of “hidden” beaches in Bali, offers beautiful long stretch white sand secluded by limestone cliffs. I enjoyed so much being out there in the water, playing in the waves, and calming myself. It was such a natural way to rest and recharge! The only “oops” was the walk up back steep hill. Maybe also needs toilets. But the overall experience was great and quite relaxing!

      Thanks for share experience about Nyang nyang beach.
      Unfortunately, there is no shop and toilet along the beach.
      Only near parking space they are located.
      If you have problem walk up back to the hill,
      you can hire or order a scooter taxi on the beach.
      It’s about IDR 25K-30K for one way.
      Otherwise, you can drive your scooter down to the beach.
      Then you can drive your scooter back to the hill.
