WHERE IS THOMAS BEACH ULUWATU & HOW TO GET THERE

Thomas Beach Bali can be found along the south-west coastline on the Bukit Peninsula. Thomas Beach is located exactly halfway between Padang Padang Beach and Suluban Beach (Uluwatu Beach).

If you are staying in the Uluwatu region you can rent a scooter for approximately 50,000 IDR per day and make your way over to Pantai Thomas Bali. If you are coming from Kuta, Seminyak or Canggu it is approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey to Thomas Beach Uluwatu.

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.
