I am reluctant to praise this place too much - it is so quiet I hate for it to be ruined. A Surfer's paradise and currently unspoiled it is a great spot to unwind and listen to the ocean.

We drove up to Balian Beach to check out the surf. The waves were awesome & the beach totally suited to surfers. The sand is black & there is plenty of rock formations on the beach which makes it difficult for swimmers. While the "boys" were surfing we sat on the hotel Pondok Pitaya deck chairs which overlooked the beach... More

We Arrived in Bali to stay on the west Coast first and try our hand at being in the surf area. It was so awesome to just chill back and relax and enjoy the waves and the beach life. Everyone in the area were so friendly . We stayed at Eddies Balian Beach Villa a block away from the beach.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Beach House at Balian Beach. It was absolutely beautiful. Nice and isolated and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Anything that was needed was only a phone call away with the supplied phone and was almost at your doorstep before you hung up. We spent most of the time just... More

Balian is more like the north of Bali with chilled vibes and cheap accommodation. The beach itself isn't that great with a lot of drift wood and coconuts washing up when the tide comes in. There are some really nice homesteads and restaurants on the hill and if you are a surfer then you'll love it here.

It is one street with a couple of resturants and a ton of homestays. It runs down to a sandbeach with some cafes. It is GREAT for surfing but not that good for swimming. Can be pretty crowed. Reefbottom, with sand some places.

What a beautiful place! Balinese surfer vibes, stunning view, friendly people around, great accommodations just the whole package. I've been just one day, but will defiantly go back. From Kuta less than two hour drive by motorbike.
