Bale Kambang, Bali Overview

About 70 kms south of Malang city in Bantur district, Balekambang beach awaits with its ocean waves and little stores full of curiosities and snacks. A bridge connects the beach to Ismoyo island, just 200m away, where you can visit the island temple and play in the relatively smoother sand. Due to the granular sand, a mat while relaxing there is a must.

Bale Kambang is located on the outskirts of the city of Malang in East Java Province of Indonesia. It is a little beach on the Indonesian island perfect for travellers who want to escape the crowd. Therefore, recommended to honeymooners too. Although it is the picturesque beauty of the attraction that draws visitors to Bale Kambang, one can also explore other attractions on the coastline before spending a relaxing evening watching the sunset. This beach is located about 2 hours away from the city; therefore, if one is in and around Malang and wondering what to do, they can spend a day out on the beach.
