Bingin Beach is one of Bali’s most popular surf spots, and it’s also one of the island’s hidden beaches, obscured by the rugged limestone cliffs on the southwestern Bukit peninsula. While getting to the stretch of white sand requires a difficult walk over uneven rocks, most people agree it is well worth the effort when they experience the gorgeous beachscapes and exciting waves. When you’re not surfing the sensational reef breaks, Bingin offers a treat for photographers or those simply looking for a place to relax and take in the exotic sunsets.
Overland, Bingin Beach offers a somewhat stark and barren topography, but you’ll have the best panoramic bird’s-eye view from the cliff-top. The best time for non-surfers and beach lovers to visit Bingin is during low tide, when much of the stretch of sand is revealed. There are a number of local bars and warungs (traditional food shacks selling cold drinks and light meals) where you can sit back and enjoy splendid views over the coast, featuring scattered boulders and rock pools.

For wave riding, Bingin Beach is easily a pro surfers’ paradise, with left-handers that can be strong with up to 8ft swells that break over submerged reef. Near the shore, it’s shallow but can be too rocky to wander barefoot. Even still, the coarse white sand of the coastline is one of the most beautiful on the peninsula’s coastline. Getting here is an hour’s transfer from Kuta, and is just several minutes north from Uluwatu Temple (another world-class surf spot!).
Great affordable stays around Bingin Beach include the Bingin Family Bungalows and the Bingin Inn, which are all convenient if you’re looking to paddle out in the early mornings, right after a good night’s sleep. Meanwhile, you can opt for accommodation that is more on the luxurious side at resorts such as the Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort, several minutes south near the Uluwatu area, and the C151 Luxury Villas, near Dreamland Beach.
