Bali is known for its white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. It is perfect for various water activities geared towards both adults and children. If you are thinking of travelling to Bali with your kids, the following are highly-recommended beaches to check out:
With stunning scenery all around, Nusa Dua is one of Bali’s most popular beaches. It is lined with palm trees, mangroves, and other beautiful flora, and has numerous luxury hotels where you and your family can check-in and be only a few minutes away from the beach. It is great for swimming, diving, surfing, and snorkeling.
Dreamland lies on Bali’s southeastern coast, with a great view of the sunset every day. It is quite popular among surfer enthusiasts as its waves are pretty strong. You can spend a day walking along the shore, gathering shells with your kids, or just lounging to relax.
Sanur is celebrated for its pristine waters, making it so easy to spot starfish, fish, and other marine life even from a distance. Old and young shell collectors will find this beach a heaven as the shorelines are often abundant with shells of various shapes, colors, and sizes.
With calmer waters compared to the other beaches, Geger Beach is where you should be with your family if you want some serene and fairly quiet surroundings. It has many cafes and diners, so enjoying a hearty meal with your loved ones every single day will not be a problem.
The trip to Balangan is one experience that makes staying at the beach a lot more interesting. Along the way, you get to see the small villages and locals going about their day-to-day life. And, once you are at Balangan Beach, you will be amazed at the tranquil vibe it exudes, just perfect for a few days away from the hectic and stressful city life.
Another secret hideaway in Bali is the Nyang Nyang Beach. It is not as known as the other beaches but it offers the same fine, white sand and immaculate waters. During low tide, you and your children can enjoy a dip in the blue sea and play a few water games.
With the Ulu Watu temple not too far away, the Padang Padang beach is a magical place that is surrounded by a dense forest, which serves as a home to some playful monkeys. It provides a fantastic backdrop for picture-taking and has a nice current that is just right for swimming with the entire family.
Tucked in the western coast, Bias Tugal is a small white sand beach that has only been discovered by a handful of tourists. It takes a bit of time to get there as you need to trek about 500 meters of rocky path, but once you finally see its untouched beauty, you will definitely not regret going there.
Located in northern Bali, Lovina Beach is a unique kind of beach as it has black sand that are the cooled lava from the volcano Mount Agung. Its low waves and overall calmness make it a safe and secure swimming paradise for even the little children. You can also wake up early to see some dolphins having fun, and walk to the fisherman’s village to dip in the thermal hot springs.
