Gorgeous beach that isn’t too difficult to access. The stairs down are easy, the ones back up are a little less fun in the heat but still do-able!
Water was crystal clear and rubbish was marginal.
Best time to visit is in the morning when they’re isn’t too many people and the water is calm. There are plenty of stalls to buy cold drinks, snacks and sarongs but none of the vendors are pushy. Surfboard hire and lessons are available too.
Great for watching the surf and it’s also dog friendly so I enjoyed watching the puppers waiting for their surfers to come back in!
Also a great spot for sunset.

Everyone mentions Eat Pray Love for this peach but I think it's more than that.

It is very popular yet not so crowded (I don't know if I was early). You can enjoy the beach to the fullest with its rawness. Yes, it is still raw, clean and perfect for snorkelling.

Since they have an entrance fee for environment and maintenance purposes, I wish for more public toilets/ shower, changing rooms with clothing hooks and functioning clean taps.

However, the beach is super nice and pretty.

Been a long time since the last moment i went there. Yesterday when i was passing by the bridge, i peeked down from the bridge and found out the beach is not as crowded as usual, then i decided to go down.

The beach is so beautiful, the water was clean and clear! Wonderful!!
There’s toilet at the beach and also near the entrance, all are clean!
Worth the entry ticket fee, tho..

Just people need to stop throwing away their rubbish, escape plastics at the beach, please!

So disappointing! The beach was super dirty and we couldn’t really swim in the water due to the amount of garbage. It’s such a shame as it has so much potential. For a beach that charges an entry fee (albeit it a small amount), we expected a better and cleaner beach. The only thing we enjoyed was seeing the monkeys however be careful as they can be sneaky.

We were so looking forward to this place.
It was such a disappointment.
First you have to pay to get in, it wasn’t a lot, but I would like to know what the funds are for??
Beware ....THERE are a lot stairs, first you come across the monkeys ...photo time... they can pinch phones etc so beware, then there are the stairs, if you are young, no problem, over 50 ish you will battle coming back up, it is quite lovely walking down the twisty stairs, you get to the bottom, and it’s crowded, The water is dirty with all sorts of things floating in it, the sand had rubbish on it, such a shame as without all the rubbish it is quite pretty, we were there in the quiet time and it was busy, and a thousand surfers out, the plus side you do have free showers to wash off, then there is the stairs coming back up, you gotta laugh, my husband powered up them, me and my two friends had to stop half way then maybe every ten steps thereafter to rest🤣 at lest I had company in my moment of unfitness

This is a small beach but nice enough. There is a small entry fee and some quite steep steps to get down to the beach itself. If you're staying locally its probably worth checking out, but I wouldn't travel especially to see it. Lots of sea weed in the water and on the beach, and lots of people taking instagram photos. We spent around half an hour there as we were staying nearby, but we didn't return, and I wouldn't call it a highlight of our trip.

Remembering how wonderful this beach was when I visited 20 years ago, it was a must do when I brought my children to Bali in March 2020. My disappointment started when we had to pay to go to the beach. Fun was had walking through the caves, but our hearts sank when we emerged on the beach. The water and beach were filthy with large amount of rubbish. The place was so crowded that we could not even sit down. We walked to the rocks and decided not to swim as we thought it unsafe due to the large amounts of rubbish. There was no beauty in this place which was a shame. We decided to turn around, very hot, and walk back up to our car, ver disappointed.

We loved our time at Padang Padang and my family ended up visiting even twice. The beach itself is quite a small stretch and with its popularity can feel very crowded. But the scenery, waters and calm ocean near the beach make for a great time.

There are lesser beach-side eateries than maybe Pandawa (the only other beach we visited). The painful part was the 100 or so steps which were very difficult while going back up.

The beach with the rocks very nice but the rundown local cafe and some locals with their stands at the back didn't make it appealing anymore. Not that they bothered anyone, just I thought it will be a secluded beach but its not. Small and in my opinion not so worth visiting. Steep stairs down to get to beach. Need pay small entrance fee 2AUD per adult
