Bingin beach, Bali

Bingin, Bali

When I lived in Bali, we used to go for weekend getaway trips to Bingin Beach and stay in homestays right on the beach. There’s no Wi-Fi and no phone signal, so it feels totally detached from the world.

My friends and I drove up once and spent the whole day surfing and sunbathing and in the evening, the local restaurants set up tables on the beach and cooked for us, which was amazing!

Make sure you have everything with you when you set off as the walk down to the beach takes about an hour and is very steep. I’ve left my bikini in the car before and had to hike all the way back to get it. Luckily the scenery is so beautiful I didn’t mind too much.

The fact that this place is so untouched by tourism makes it truly special. As soon as you arrive you’re experiencing the true culture of the island.
