One of the many surfing spots Bali has to offer, Padang Padang beach on the Bukit peninsula features a long stretch of white sand ideal for building sand castles and sunbathing, while the blue waters draw pro surfers. Lined with cafes and shops, the beach gained fame for being the backdrop to Julia Robert's Eat, Pray, Love
A favourite tourist site, Air Manis beach offers an ecstatic view of Mount Padang. The beach has a historical significance attached to it; there is a replica of a boat and a man, who is considered to be Malin Kundang. Legend has it that the man was turned to stone by his mother after he failed to acknowledge his mother once he became rich. The beach is serene and a good place to relax.
These beaches around Padang are ideal for chilled-out vacation.
