HOW TO GET HERE

If you are staying in the Uluwatu region, I recommend renting a scooter and making the short drive over to Bingin.

For those of you who are coming from Kuta, Seminyak, or Canggu, it’s approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey.

Don’t feel confident riding a scooter? Another great option for getting around Bali is to hire a private car and a driver for the day and experience all that the island has to offer.

Includes:

  • Experienced Driver
  • Hotel pick-up & drop-off
  • Mineral water
  • Petrol

ARRIVING AT PANTAI BINGIN

There are no roads that lead directly down to Pantai Bingin so you’ll have to park your scooter at the top of the cliffs in the designated parking lot and the cost of parking is 2,000 IDR.

From the parking lot, follow the signs and you’ll find a paved alleyway that leads past some hilltop accommodations to a set of stairs that will take you all the way down to the sand at Bingin Beach Bali.

About halfway down the set of stairs, the pathway comes to an intersection and branches off in a few different directions.

It doesn’t matter which path you take as they all eventually emerge on the shoreline.

THINGS TO DO AT BINGIN BEACH ULUWATU

As you may know, Bingin is a hotspot for surfing. If you would like to rent a surfboard there are a few surf shacks dotted across the main beach that have a wide selection of boards to choose from.

The cost of a surfboard rental is 50,000 IDR for two hours. Surf lessons are also available, just inquire with the guys at the surfboard rental shacks.

If you’re not a keen surfer, no worries because there is lots of exploring to be had.

Head south along the sand and around the rocky outcrops to find smaller secluded beaches and abandoned beach shacks at the base of the cliffs.

BINGIN BEACH RESTAURANTS

For food and drinks, the best restaurants worth checking out 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 favorite pick for dinner, located right on the sand on the main beach. Lucky Fish serves up some of the best BBQ seafood dishes in all of Bali.

It’s 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.

BINGIN BEACH SURF

The Bingin surf break is a fast left-hand barreling wave that can be surfed on all tides.

The best months to surf at Bingin is in the dry season between May and October. Bingin Surf works best in offshore winds from the east and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest.

You can check the live stream video on the Bingin Surf Cam to see the conditions beforehand.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BINGIN

The best time of day to visit is early to mid-morning once the sun is already up and it reaches this side of the Bukit Peninsula.

It’s busiest during the middle of the day and early afternoon. Sometimes it can be hard to find a nice spot along the beach to settle down because it gets quite crowded, so just keep this in mind when planning your visit.

You can also consider visiting in the late afternoon during sunset hours as most of the day-trippers would have come and gone by this time.

Because of its west-facing location, it’s low-key one of the best spots to watch the sunset in South Bali.
