There are two ways to get to the Balian beach. The route to the Balian Surf Camp takes you to a part of the beach that is absolutely deserted!! And it has one beach shack run by the local villagers. The food is really cheap and the whole beach is pretty much empty. The sunset time was absolutely the best..... More

We stayed in a villa overlooking the beach for eight nights and enjoyed some incredible views, especially at sunset. Though we didn't get in the water ourselves, there was a range of water activities taking place throughout the week due to the high waves and decent winds - which enabled kite-surfing. There are plenty of hotels/restaurants and cafes close by... More

Unspoilt bali, Best tip would be to visit and make your own assessment. Long quiet palm fringed beaches either side of the river. My favorite place in bali, 8 visits in 8 years

Visited after rain had washed out lots of rubbish and then the current rips through the line up and makes the waves funky, not sure if it always like this but not good after rain, plenty of good places to stay in walking distance

Balian beach is a small laid back beach without all the umbrellas and tourist clutter.. It's got great surf and has little warungs close by to sit in and watch the clouds pass by

We spent a couple of days in Balian Beach and it was just beautiful! Everyone we met was extremely welcoming and the area was natural and beautiful! This would likely be one of the most beautiful places in Bali!

It's fun and relaxing to see the surfers and waves. But just like any other underdeveloped area, around the beach is quite dirty and there's nothing special about the beach. One thing I liked during my stay in Balian was there were not many drunk people but one quiet town with healthy foods. I'd only recommend this place for you... More

Amazing food, lovely quiet beach. Had a great time! Very busy in the morning with surfers. A few very tasty restaurants with excellent sea view all along the road leading to the beach.
