Pig Stone Beach Bali is quickly becoming a popular spot to visit and it’s only a short drive away from the more crowded beaches in Canggu, such as Old Man’s and Echo Beach.
I have put together this complete guide including how to get there and what to expect you arrive.
WHERE IS PIG STONE BEACH BALI
Pig Stone Beach Bali is approximately a 20-minute drive north of Canggu, depending on the traffic.
The drive to Pantai Pig Stone will take you past beautiful rice fields, traditional villages, and small temples and you will get a taste of the real Bali and what Canggu used to be like before the mass influx of tourism and infrastructure.

HOW TO GET THERE
The best way to get to Pantai Pig Stone is to rent a scooter in Canggu and make the short drive north to this awesome location.
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.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Pantai Pig Stone is an isolated black sand beach that is very raw and untouched.
There is an uncrowded left-hand surf break in front of the palm tree hill at Pig Stone Beach Bali which is best surfed on a mid to high tide.
If you are a motorbike enthusiast like myself, Pig Stone is a great spot to take a bike down onto the black sand and cruise up and down the coastline at your own will.
The locals are really chill and you won’t get into trouble with them and chances are you won’t be the only one burning around Pantai Pig Stone as this location is a popular spot for a motorbike session, especially around sunset.
There are no local warungs to buy food or water, so be sure to come prepared.
The palm tree hill makes a great spot for a lunchtime picnic or afternoon sunset beers, a perfect excuse to round up your mates and make a day of it!

Have you got travel insurance for your trip?!
We all know accidents can happen and having Heymondo Insurance will save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.
Heymondo offers low-cost Travel Insurance to keep you covered on all your adventures.
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
There is no cost to visit this beach compared to some of the more popular beaches in Canggu which tend to have parking fees and entry fees.
If you are taking snacks, water, or beers to Pantai Pig Stone, always remember to take your rubbish with you and leave the place cleaner than you found it.
Plastic pollution is one of the biggest problems in Bali and Indonesia as a whole, so the last thing we need is for people to be adding to this issue by leaving rubbish behind.
There is not much shade and it can get really hot during the middle of the day, especially on the black volcanic sand. Make sure to bring sunscreen if you plan to spend the day out here.
