Balangan Beach is a popular destination in Bali’s Jimbaran region approximately 1 hour south of Denpasar.
Though not as crowded as the beaches of Kuta, it’s still quite busy. Visitors flock for the rising cliffs and soft white sand. You can watch fisherman on the horizon, and (if positioned correctly) see planes fly through to Ngurah Rai airport.
Surfers in particular are drawn to Balangan Beach, which is known for its large, barreling waves. You can also find pre-weds and honeymooners who visit for its picturesque setting.
The best time to visit Balangan Beach is the afternoon. This is when the sun is strongest to pierce through the crystal clear waters. You can also catch sunset, which is not to be missed!
