*) 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 bus and Trans Metro Dewata bus. 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.

***) You can not use Go-jek or Grab transport because the distance so far and it’s hard for them to find other passenger on the way back.

****) There are two ways to access Virgin beach. I suggest you to access via Bugbug village. You will pass the hill and see stunning view from the hill.
