Melasti Beach, Bali Overview

A recently discovered gem of Bali, Melasti beach is a picturesque attraction located in Ungasan. Flanked by limestone cliffs, the white sands and clear blue waters are ideal for swimming and sunbathing. Best when visited during low tide, when small pools are formed between rocks and little fish can be seen swimming around.

A relatively new and unpopulated beach, Melasti offers a more secluded and softer beach experience as compared to the boisterous nature of beaches like Kuta. Three main parts of the beach are- east, middle, and west. Here the east part has a wonderful limestone cape and hill, whereas the west part will offer one with some of the most mind-blowing views of the sunset. The middle part of the beach is mostly frequented for use of the swimming pools.
