The best beaches in Bali
The beautiful island of Bali is a haven of coastline. Ranging from deep dark black sand that will burn the bottoms of your feet off to the stunning white sand beaches of the South. Whatever your flavor of sand & salt combination , we’re pretty sure Bali has their version of it. Read on for our favourite of the 100’s of beaches here on Bali.
1) BINGIN BEACH
Located on the Bukit Penninsula on the Southern tip of Bali, Bingin is a small and cosy stretch of golden sand and reef rocks. Once you’ve made the hike of 100+ steep stairs down through guesthouses and warungs, you reach a pretty perfect piece of cove to loose the afternoon in. There’s no shade down here so hit the beach early or just before Sunset. Alternatively, park up at one of the beachside Warungs (Café’s) and order lunch/coconuts/ice creams with a view! You can stay here and depending on your haggling ability, rooms with ocean views start from $20 a night. It’s 100% worth it! TIP: Go at Mid –high tide to be able to swim.
2) THOMAS BEACH
Located just up the road from Bingin beach closer towards the Southern tip of the island, Thomas Beach is a little less built up than its neighbours Ulluwatu & Pandang Padang. Probably because of its extremely limited signage! Pop it in google and don’t be afraid of the gravel road to get there, that’s just the beginning. Take a hike down the 200 stairs and park up on one of the beach chairs or go left and find a secret nook in the little rock pool/cave areas! It’s a stunning stretch of beach and while it’s not too built up now with only 1 place to stay, get there soon! TIP: Go at Mid –high tide to be able to swim.
3) GREEN BOWL
Located still down on the Bukit Penninsula but on the back side, Green Bowl is about a 30 minute scooter ride from the likes of Bingin Beach. Completely un-developed (Unlike its brother next door, Pandawa Beach which gets deliveries by the bus load every hour!) you’re not getting more than a Nasi Goreng, or Coconut here and that’s only at the top. This may well be due to the 200+ steep stairs to get down to the beach or maybe the fact that there is no beach at all at high tide! Green Bowl beach has 2 caves which is perfect to shelter from the mid day sunshine, making it a great day trip option (Just pack your snacks!). There’s also a great surf spot right out in front of the beach.
Located 30 minutes west of Canggu, this stretch of Black Sand beach is completely untouched other than a Dirt Bike track behind it. Lined with Palm trees, and black rock cliffs either end, I can imagine this is what Seminyak & Canggu used to be like 10 years ago. On Sunday’s it’s a locals haven, so be sure to head there then if you want to try some of the local street food cuisine…Easy to access via Car & Scooter and the best part? There’s no stairs! TIP: If you’re making a day trip, head to the cool café / gallery space called Joshua District just a little back off the main turn off. (Google maps
5) WHITE SAND BEACH
This one’s a little further than a day trip or perhaps I would recommend visiting with a car rather than by scooter. White Sand Beach is a random cove along the East Coast of Bali where all other beaches are Black Sand! The closest town to stay is Candidasa, a lovely little beachy village located on the water about 10kms South of White Sand Beach. It’s a small hike down a hot dusty road to get to the beach but that’s nothing on our recommended beaches down in the Bukit! There’s lots of other things to do up in this area like Coffee & Cocoa plantations and waterfalls so if you decide to make the hike to this stunning beach, be sure to make a weekend of it!
We’re of course, huge fans of any beach here on the island. If you have more time, step foot off of Bali onto the golden shores of Nusa Lembongan, Gili Islands or Nusa Penida and there is a whole other barrel of (near) untouched beaches awaiting to be discovered. If you’re planning a few weeks in Indonesia I would highly recommend spending a few days over on nearby island Lombok. Grab a scooter and ride through farm land, rolling hills and the small villages of this small and rugered island to discover an absolute paradise of coastline. TIP: Plan your trip soon, it won’t stay this way for too much longer!
Bali is quickly becoming the 'Ibiza of Asia' and it's doing a pretty good job at it, I must say! With an expansive and vast coastline on offer, some of the most creative humans on this planet mixed with delicious fresh produce, Bali is a pretty great starting point to create a killer beach club. Over the years we have slowly making our way around them all (If that's even possible) and today I present to you 5 of my personal favourites to date. Note, these are all BEACH clubs, not cliff top clubs in which we will get to them soon in another blog post!
We took 5 with Californian beauty and long-time blogger Francesca Smith of @frankvinyl and heard why she loves to call San Diego home, the best piece of advice she ever received and what brands she's loving right now! Jump on over for our latest interview with this beauty (And looking oh so cute in our ST JUDE pendant of course!)
Welcoming FRENCH HARVEST, a capsule collection of hoop earrings & crisp cotton bandana’s that are about to become the staples in your ever evolving jewellery box.
Simple & elegant in design, we’re pretty confident these 4 new designs of hoop earrings will be your go-to signature staples for many years to come....
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 15" (Petites & almost a Choker length) to 23". Our 15", 16" and 18" length necklaces all come in our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain which is slightly heavier in weight. All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all necklaces are adjustable by 1"/2.5cm in length. Below is a diagram of how our chain lengths sit on a body. If you have a large breast area, you may find that the 23" length chain sits in between your boobs...a good thing or bad, I'm not sure, that's up to you!
|CHARITY & SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
