Bingin Beach is a surfers paradise when it comes to pumping waves! Bingin Beach Surf is one of the most demanding reef breaks in Bali that has surfers flying in from around the globe to try their luck at getting shacked on the fast left-hander barreling wave.

But it’s not just the waves that have people flocking to Bingin Beach, there are a number of other things to do and see that I have put together in this blog post.

Have you got travel insurance for Bali? 
I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having travel insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. You can read more about why you need travel insurance.

I have been using World Nomads Travel Insurance on every trip and in my opinion, they are without a doubt the best travel insurance provider on the market. I always choose the World Nomads Explorer Plan as it covers just about everything.

 

WHERE IS BINGIN BEACH & HOW TO GET THERE

Bingin Bali is located along the western coastline on the Bukit Peninsula, Uluwatu.

If you are staying in the Uluwatu region you can rent a scooter for approximately 50,000 Rupiah per day and make your way over to Bingin Beach Uluwatu.

If you are coming from Kuta, Seminyak or Canggu it is approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey to Bingin Beach.

For scooter rentals, you can ask your accommodation to organise this as they are always able to help.

Alternatively, keep your eyes peeled along the main roads in the Canggu, Seminyak, Kuta and Uluwatu regions and you will be sure to find a scooter rental shop.

ARRIVING AT BINGIN BEACH

As there are no roads down to Pantai Bingin you’ll have to park your scooter at the top of the cliffs in the designated car park and the cost of parking is 2,000 (20c) rupiah.

From the car park, you’ll find a paved alleyway that leads down passed some hilltop accommodations and to a set of stairs, that is cut into the side of the cliffs, which head all the way down to the sand at Bingin Bali.

About halfway down the set of the stairs, the pathway comes to an intersection and branches off into a few different directions. It doesn’t matter which path you take as they all lead down on to the sand at Pantai Bingin.

THINGS TO DO AT BINGIN BEACH ULUWATU

As you know by now Bingin Beach is a hotspot for surfing. If you would like to rent a surfboard there are a few surf shacks located right on the sand at Pantai Bingin that have a wide selection of boards to choose from.

The cost of surfboard rental is 50,000 Rupiah for tw0 hours. Surf lessons are also available at Bingin Beach, just inquire at the surfboard rental shacks.

If you are not a keen surfer there is a lot of exploring to be done down at Bingin Beach. Head south along the sand and around the rocky outcrops to find smaller secluded beaches and abandoned beach shacks at the base of the Bingin Beach Cliffs.

For food, my favourite Bingin Beach restaurants are Kelly’s Warung and Lucky Fish.

  • Kelly’s Warung is situated right in front of the famous Bingin Surf Break with front row seats to watch all the action. They have a massive selection of food and drinks available including smoothie bowls, toasted sandwiches, wraps, burgers, Indonesian cuisine, juices and coffee.
  • Lucky Fish is my personal favourite pick for dinner, located on the sand at Pantai Bingin. Lucky Fish serves up the best BBQ seafood meals I have had in all of Bali. It is the perfect spot to watch the sunset with a cold beer in hand and fresh fish on the plate. On the weekends they also tend to have live music for you to enjoy during dinner.
