I knew that Suluban was a surfing beach. But I went anyway because of an article in the internet that says there's a cave like Pirates of the Caribbean set there. An overstatement. Yes the rocks was beautiful but it's hardly a cave (I guess it depends on your definition of caves). Decided to jump in the water a bit... More

Getting there is hard, many steps, some of them harder than others, carefeul with this. Once you go down the steps you find a great view in some sort of cave, waves are very strong so also be careful here. From there you can go up to have something to drink or eat and enjoy the spectacular view.

You'll venture over quite a few staircases and a narrow village before making your way into/through a small cave. At the time the tide was in so it wasn't so apparent that this was your access to the beach. In any case there are lots of cafes/restaurants/bars that overlook the ocean and surfers below. Was nice to watch with some... More

Difficult route down the beach. Multiple rocky staircases to climb down and fro. Need to climb onto the rocks to get down to the beach. Need to be very careful and not for light hearted who are afraid of heights. Great place to surf or enjoy basking in the sun. Awesome place to see the sunset! Secret beach under uluwatu... More

One of the best hidden beach in Bali. Yes, the beach is kinda hard to access, because we have to go down a lot of stairs, but when we get there, the views is amazing and unique. An absolute must if you go to Bali.

Once you get down the the cave, it is beautiful, but of you want to get up to the top to see the view, there is a restaurant there which they are very pushy to the point of being aggressive to make you buy something. Not worth it if you go at high tide, just get your Instagram pic in... More

There are almost 160 steep steps to reach this beach. And the waves are rough so its not for swimming. Saw many surfers and it was a great view. The narrow access makes it a very unique beach. Sunset view is awesome. We confused this with Uluwatu beach. Its near the Uluwatu temple, but its not under the temple. It... More

The steps down to this alcove nearly killed me but it was all worth it! Do note that this place is probably not very child and elderly friendly and those who has a serious case of vertigo might want to reconsider this as well. I did not regret a single bit even though the steps were quite steep. It's a... More

Although this beach is hard to access because you have to go down a lot of stairs and the stairs are unsafe actually but the beach itself is unique. The water is crystal clear, you can just sit there and feel like you're in a giant bath tub. Great for surfers too.

First off, let me say if you are looking for laid back beach, this isn't for you. Most of the times, it is too high tide to have a leisurely swim. A majority of the population that I witnessed there were surfers. If you don't surf, it's still very fun to gaze at the view, soak up the sun and... More
