Bali is an amazing island with a wide range of towns, landscapes and it’s best features, beaches. Beaches is the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions Bali. It’s an incredible exotic location with untouched beaches; if you know where to go. Luckily, we got some insider information from a local artist that has been living on the island for the past 30 years. We asked for a secluded beach and that’s what we found!
Nyang Nyang beach is located in the southwest corner of the southern peninsula of Bali. Even knowing the name and location doesn’t garrentee you will find the beach. It’s a well hidden beach worth the adventure trying to find it. Make sure you have a decent motorbike and it will be a beach you’ll never forget.
There will be a hotel that’s clearly marked and easy to spot to drive into. But this hotel will simply give you an amazing look over the cliffs to what would be the pristine Nyang Nyang Beach. If you do end up here, take a few photos just like we did, but don’t stay too long as there much more waiting to be discovered.
Less than 100 meters down the road you’ll find the actual road that leads to Nyang Nyang beach. It’s a rocky dirt road; not for the faint of heart. If it becomes to much to bare, you can always park your motorbike and continue the trek on foot. At the end of this long rocky path, you come across a small hut overlooking the beach. Here you can buy water and rice. (the rice is not the greatest but the water is a must on a hot day!)
The fun hasn’t ended yet. If you remember, you are on a huge cliff. In order to get down, you’ll have to climb down the 500 steps to the beach. It’s not a heavily trafficked area so some of the steps have been overgrown by the surrounding nature. It’s a pretty easy journey down but the way up is a little more difficult.
At the bottom of the 500 steps you be rewarded with a pristine beach free from tourist and the causal explorer. Down here you’ll only find a few local fisherman and a few friendly dogs. Enjoy!
