*) It’s really not efficient trip using public transport in Bali. Waste your time, energy and money. There is no fixed price in Bali transportation system, except Trans Sarbagita. If the passenger full loaded you will get the price above, but if quiet (little) passenger you will pay more expensive. Seems they applied operational cost basis since the public transport not so popular today (quiet).

**) For backpacker i recommend you to rent a scooter to reach this place and use google map as your navigator.

    Not really hidden but nice beach. Don’t expect to be alone there,lot’s of people cause of sea port is just next to the place. But it’s long, clean enough and water is clear. Easy to find homestay next to the beach

      Maybe in the past it’s a hidden beach.
      I remembered that i have to pass a little jungle before reach the Bias Tugel beach.
      Yes, the water is clear enough.

    When I first time heard of Bias Tugel beach, it sounds strange to my ears. Indeed, it was once a secret beach and somehow still unknown compared to nearby white sand beach of Blue Lagoon. However, Bias Tugel is actually among beatiful beaches in East Bali.
    The trek goes down to the beach is pretty much easy and safe. The beach area itself is not too wide but the white sands and blue seawater are truly stunning!
    There is even a small lagoon where you can soak and relax and enjoy the splash of the waves and waterblow against the rocks. Only note that sometimes the waves can be high and currents can be strong and no lifeguards on duty. But overall experience was fantastic!

      Thank you for share your experience and describing the beach here.
      It’s true no lifeguard on Bias Tugel beach.
      Yes, sometime the high wave come suddenly.
      It’s really unexpected situation.
