Balian Beach in Bali

Popular Surf Spot in West Bali

Balian Beach is a remote beach and popular surf spot on Bali’s west coast. The beach is an approximately 40 km drive northwest from Tanah Lot Temple, or around two hours from Kuta. Its remote location, exotic stretch of black sand, and great swells off the coast have long lured surfers to this area. Its collection of cheap and laidback accommodation options has also attracted backpackers venturing into the West Bali region. For non-surfers, Balian offers stunning seascapes and is a great spot to enjoy memorable Bali sunsets.

Escape to Balian Beach

For a “real Bali” budget escape, Balian Beach is one of the best choices available. You can find a host of quirky surf camps, local beach bars, and plenty of cheap eats around Balian Beach. It’s a typical Bali surfers’ paradise and offers a great getaway from the island’s busier resorts to the south. Balian can also serve as a base for exploring many of the highlights of West Bali, from the rural villages, traditional markets, and rice fields, to the temples and waterfalls. The waves here aren’t the best for swimming however. And a tip for first-time surfers - avoid the Balian river mouth breaks. Bull sharks have been reported here.
