Balangan Beach is located in Uluwatu-Bali on the Western side of the Bukit Peninsula in Indonesia. This surfing beach has over 200 meters worth of white sand and offers wide reaching views of the Indian Ocean.
Both travelers and locals consider this beach worth the visit.
How to get to the beach
The trip to the beach takes about twenty-five min by car from Denpasar Airport, and about 6 km away from the Ugasan Junction along the windy road. So the easiest method of transport to the beach would be by car, or on a motorbike. There is no public transportation to the area, though there is plenty of car parking.
Surfing is a major incentive for tourists to the area. There are a powerful barrel and long swells that are consistent in frequency and size.
For relaxed tourists, there are long chairs and umbrellas for hire, and food and drink to buy at the Warung Food and Drink Stall.
