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 NYANG NYANG BEACH & HOW TO GET THERE

Nyang Nyang Beach is located in the Bukit Peninsula, which is in the southern region of Bali.

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 Nyang Nyang Beach.

If you are coming from Kuta, Seminyak or Canggu it is approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey to Nyang Nyang 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 NYANG NYANG BEACH

You will arrive at the parking lot that is in front of a hotel and then you take the path down to the right-hand side of the hotel. When you come to a fork in the track, take the path down to the right.

The trek down the cliffside to get to Nyang Nyang Beach takes twenty minutes. The stairs are quite steep in areas and some parts are very rocky so make sure you have suitable footwear.

You will find little warungs at the top and at the bottom of the cliffs, selling snacks, water and coconuts which is smart because it is thirsty work getting down to Nyang Nyang Beach and back up again.

WHAT TO EXPECT TO SEE AT NYANG NYANG BEACH ULUWATU

The first thing we did as soon as we arrived was run straight for the ocean to cool off! When you are in the water, look back at the route that you have just trekked down and you’ll be amazed at the dense greenery that covers the cliff walls.

On Nyang Nyang Beach there is a shipwreck that is half-buried in the sand. It is a popular spot to take photos sitting or standing on the boat. Graffiti artists have also taken advantage of this wrecked vessel to display their artworks.

NYANG NYANG BEACH – THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

The best time to take photos of the shipwreck is before 12pm. We arrived at the Nyang Nyang Beach around 2pm and it was difficult shooting into the sun as it began to set in the west.

If you do decide to visit Nyang Nyang Beach later in the day, I highly recommend sticking around for sunset which is between 6 – 7pm. The sunsets down here in the Bukit Peninsula light up the skies like I have never seen before!

At the top of the cliffs, you can also find some epic viewpoints for those toes over the edge type shots.
