The beach almost felt like a private beach. The people were lovely and we ate a fresh fish on the beach. The road to the beach is an adventure.

It's a nice beach in east Bali, different from all the black sand beaches around here. There are lots of warungs on the beach now, and it changed a lot the past years.
Before it was more a local hangout and very cosey, now it is a fullspeed tourist factory with many beach beds, it is still nice but not as nice as it used to be :)

Beautifull beach,depends when you come because of the tide...better come later ....cause the wawes are smaller..personally we realy dont like warungs side by side cause of the agressive nature of locals who own it...they would do anything for you to take their umbrella ad eat from their place...but if you walk until the end,its not a big walk,under one tree,there is a shade and just you and the beach and when you go hungry warungs are 6min walking...Its after the village BUG BUG...on the right side when you are coming from Candidasa.Not hard to find but look carefully for the sighn...Pasir putih is a local name,it just means white beach..Youll pay 5000rp all togheter,we went on a motorbike from Candidasa...best way..road is bumpy....

I live near White Sand or Virgin Beach in Bug Bug,Karangasem.
The ride from the island's main highway is quiet and has some nice views of it's own.
You will have to pay a few thousand to the gate keepers at the top of the hill but the upside is they will look after your bike or car if you decide to park at the top of the hill.
The road from here on in to the beach is precarious and rough.
It is dangerous if on a motorbike and should be seen as dealt with extreme caution.
After you get down the steep hill the road is still rough but fairly flat so it is fine.
There are a plethora of small warungs set up along the beach and you can rent umbrella's and beach chairs or have a meal and a soft drink or beer.
The beach is a beautiful sand and the views are pleasant with a small island off in the distance flanked by two natural hills of dry terrain/trees.
The far end of the beach is reserved for local fishing boats and is colorful,the prominent plastic and garbage on this end of the beach representing what modern Indonesia truly has to offer.
The water is super but be warned; The waves are rough and they come in hard.Be prepared and be aware.It can be dangerous.
All in all this is a beautiful beach and area.Really,it is as good as it gets on Bali so rent a car with a driver or a motor bike and come and see how beautiful this island truly is.

drive from seminyak was about 2 hours, got caught up in a ngaben ceremony along the way, got lost for a good half an hour, after all that well i can say that it was worth it. the sands are clean , great place to have a swim or just relax. hope this place will remain pristine and isolated for the near future. tips: you can drive ur car all the way to the beach parking area, and of course bring your own towel. warung there offered cheap drinks and foods (coconut for $2)
