Nyang Nyang Beach, Bali Overview

Nyang Nyag Beach is Bali’s best kept secret destination featuring a 1.5 kilometer crystal white sand beach along the turquoise blue waters in Uluwatu Pecatu region. The pristinely quiet beach with graffiti bearing ship wrecks along the coastline makes it one of the most visited beaches in Bali. The Nyang Nyang Beach is ideal for travel enthusiasts and beach lovers for the fact that it is far flung, secluded and a leverage over the other crowded beaches.

Located about half a kilometer drive from the famous Uluwatu temple, the Nyang Nyag Beach is tucked down about 15 to 20 minutes of trek from its parking spot. On covering this trek of moderately rocky terrain and few flight of stairs towards the beach, one discovers the unblemished beach with theatrical silvery cliffs covered in Jurassic like flora, rock-pools and a natural bed of seaweeds.
