Nyang Nyang Beach (Pantai Nyang Nyang) is one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in all of Bali. The glistening white sand and turquoise waters make this beach a must-see location during your visit to Uluwatu.

WHERE IS NYANG NYANG BEACH?
Nyang Nyang Beach is located on the Bukit Peninsula in Uluwatu, South Bali.
HOW TO GET HERE
If you are staying in the Uluwatu region, I recommend renting a scooter and making the short drive over to Nyang Nyang Beach Bali.
For those of you who are coming from Kuta, Seminyak, or Canggu, it’s approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey, depending on traffic.
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.

ARRIVING AT NYANG NYANG BEACH
The jump-off point at Nyang Nyang Beach is located in front of a hotel and you can safely park your scooter in the parking lot free of charge.
From here, follow the path along the right-hand side of the hotel and when you come to a fork in the track, take the path down to the right which eventually emerges on the shoreline.
The trek down the cliffside to get to the beach takes around fifteen to twenty minutes. The stairs are quite steep in areas and some parts are very rocky so make sure to wear suitable footwear.
You will find little warungs at the top and at the bottom of the cliffs selling snacks, water, and coconuts which is super convenient because it’s thirsty work getting down to Pantai Nyang Nyang and back up again.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT NYANG NYANG BEACH
The first thing we did as soon as we arrived on the beach was run straight for the ocean to cool off in the calm waters.
When you’re in the water, I invite you to look back towards where you just trekked down and marvel at the dense greenery that covers the monolithic cliff walls.
A shipwreck can also be found on the main beach which is half-buried in the sand. It’s a very popular spot to take photos sitting or standing on the boat.
Graffiti artists have taken advantage of the Nyang Nyang Beach shipwreck to display their artworks.

NYANG NYANG BEACH – THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
The best time to take photos of the shipwreck is before 12 pm. We arrived at around 2 pm and it was difficult shooting into the sun as it began to set in the west.
I recommend visiting early morning before it gets too hot in the midday sun and you can enjoy a few hours down on the beach to yourself before it gets crowded.
If you do decide to visit Nyang Nyang Beach later in the day, I highly recommend sticking around for sunset which is generally around 6 pm. The sunsets down here in the Bukit Peninsula light up the skies like I have never seen before!
At the top of the cliff, you can also find some epic viewpoints for those toes over the edge type shots.
