The best beaches in Bali are found in the south: around Kuta, Jimbaran, and the Bukit Peninsula. Some of these are also very busy (particularly the coast from Kuta to Seminyak).
Hop in a taxi or rent a car and it’s easy to find some great stretches of sand with few other tourists around. Bali is a year round destination so concern about weather and seasons should not be a major concern when planning a trip.

11. IMPOSSIBLE BEACH
Down the Peninsula from Padang-Padang, this long stretch of white-sand beach is free of ‘warungs’ and people, and still maintaining its original natural make-up of flora along the towering cliffs. Unfortunately, at high tide the beach all but disappears under the waves, and for this reason Impossible Beach is not an ideal place for relaxing on the sand, although it is a great setting for a sea-side walk at low tide. Swimming is not advised here, and the waves are for experienced surfers only, as they break over reef.
12. PEMUTERAN BEACH
Pemuteran Beach is located in Pemuteran Village. The beach has so many beautiful fishes, turtles and other marine and submarine habitats and coral reefs. There is also turtle conservation nearby. This peaceful place is ideal for natural excursion activities such as tramping at the National Park, swimming, snorkeling and diving.
