We were a family of non surfers but had a great time at Balian. The coastline is stunning with lots of caves, coves and beaches to explore. The rice fields are planted right up to the beach. If you love nature, swimming, quiet locations and walking - this is the place. We also highly recommend Mai Malu restaurant.

Balian beach is a good walk. The north end is bounded by cliffs. The south meanders across a river and a number of other beaches. The far end has a sea arch. best to walk at low tide. swimming is murky and dangerous due to strong rips and hidden rocks

The beach with its white sand stretched for miles! The water was warm - my friends went for a swim but I chickened out! The water looked hazardous - a wave would suddenly rise up from a swell and DUMP very spectacularly. There were no surfers on the beach where we were. A fairly large market lined the street and...

LOVED Balian Beach -- didn't swim in the ocean there as it looked a bit hazardous. Surfers were having a ball and the quiet location was magic! Had glorious accommodation (Pondok Pisces) and had some fantastic meals at different places! Roads to/from Balian were not nice...choose your time to travel as it got quite scary at times!

This beach is very dirty and not somewhere you would lie or relax. It's a the opening of a river mouth and always covered in either blurk out of the river or drift wood up the beach. There is a hotel of sorts next to it that lets you have a swim if your eating there and waiting for your... More

OMG! So many things happen here.. Hair weaving, pedicure, manucure, tattoo, surf, massage.. Allow yourself to be immersed in the continual chatter..and let the wind sweep your worries away. Great place to watch the sun set over the sea..
