Beaches and Marine Life in Bali

Stunning beaches with amazing marine life waiting to be explored

​Bali's beaches blend from the pure white sands of the south to the dramatic black shores of the northwest, from sleepy coves to lively beach resorts. If you're dreaming of a relaxing, beachfront holiday in the Balinese sunshine, you've come to the right place.

Kuta beach is the best place for great nightlife and even better for surfing, while the golden sands of Nusa Dua are fringed by luxury hotels and Sanur's pale, reef-sheltered shore is lapped by calm waters. No matter where your Bali adventure takes you, you're guaranteed beautiful beaches and even more beautiful views. 

As well as the stunning shores, Bali is home to kaleidoscopic marine life, ideal for those wanting to take a glimpse beneath the surface. ​Imagine swimming through Bali's underwater world as manta rays glide overhead or a two-metre-long sunfish watches you from close by; Bali is ringed by mesmerising scuba diving and snorkelling sites like Manta Point off Nusa Penida, the mangroves of Nusa Lembongan, and the 30-metre reef wall of Pulau Menjangan, all teeming with marine life. Whether you're a beginner diver or an experienced snorkeller, there's a fascinating world of fish, rays, turtles and more waiting to be explored. The Bali waters are also home to several shipwrecks that can be explored by the more skilled diver, all with a story to tell and history to be uncovered.

" For calmer waters which are ideal for swimming stay on the east coast of Bali and if your an early riser you can also enjoy the sunrise from this side of the island."
