Secret Bali beaches
Most tourists come to Bali for the beautiful beaches that nature has created for millennia. One likes soft sand in the south, others prefer black volcanic sand in the west, while others go for tranquil calm to the east, where fishing villages thrive on the coastline. Kuta, Sanur and Nusa Dua are favorite resorts crowded with vacationers. There are still hidden places where crowds of people have not yet reached.
Perasi is also known by the names “White Beach” or “Secret Beach”. It stretches between 2 hills separating the villages of Bugbug and Perasi. The latter gave the name to the sugar-colored coastline, equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds. Restaurants serving local cuisine complete the idyllic picture.
How to get there: From Candidasa, follow the Jalan Raya Candidasa-Bugbug main road towards Perasi. Take the dirt road at the temple near the village of Pura Bale Agung, it will lead directly to the beach.
BALANGAN, PECATU, JIMBARAN
The beach is located in the southernmost point of Bali, on the Bukit Peninsula. It is ideal for surfers due to the constant waves formed by the flow and the special topography of the bottom. But ordinary bathers will not be comfortable here. Water procedures can easily be replaced by walking and take some breathtaking pictures – erosion has formed a real cosmic landscape.
