“Interesting place to visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Our local friends took us to Pantai Pendawa for an afternoon outing. With a beach sheltered by a reef it's a favourite spot with locals for a Sunday afternoon outing and swim without having to worry about surf.

It was a Sunday afternoon when we visited, so the beach was crowded with locals (Sunday is usually family leisure day in Bali). There were also coach loads of domestic tourists from Java there when we visited - so overall it was an interesting local experience and insight.

On the road down to the beach large caverns have been carved into the cliff face and large statues depicting a range of Hindu deities have been placed in them. It's a really interesting example of a manufactured attraction that is becoming known by sheer curiosity.

It cost us 5,000 rp each for us foreigners to enter via the road to the beach.

On the beach you can hire beach chairs and umbrellas for 50,000 rp each (no time limit ) - which you need because the sun is so hot and there is no other shade.

There are little warungs where you can purchase food or drink all along the beach. Nobody really hassled us to purchase anything however.

The sand is nice and white and the water looked clear - although when we were leaving I noticed the creek running from the cliff into the bay which was full of effluent. While it had a wall of sorts for flood mitigation I'm sure that in a big downpour that it would be breached and assume all that effluent would flow into the beach?

It is worthwhile planning ahead if you plan to swim and come wearing your bathers as apart from wet and dirty toilets there is nowhere to change. There is a "private" toilet at one end of the beach which you have to pay for - but it was less hygienic than the public toilets. In the end my 8 year old daughter resorted to a quick change wrapped in a towel so that she could take a dip - but that was never going to work for me with the little towels I had brought from the hotel.

The 2 French girls who were travelling with us for the day did however come prepared to swim and soon became the centre of attention on the beach in their bikinis with many requests to be photographed with them - all harmless enough - but a bit of a culture shock for them.

It's probably an easy attraction to visit from Kuta or Nusa Dua - but coming from Sanur it was a bit of a hike - even on the new tollway.
