Suluban Beach In Uluwatu – The Ultimate Guide

//

Suluban Beach (also known as Blue Point Beach Uluwatu and Pantai Suluban) is one of the most spectacular beaches on the island which can be found in the Bukit Peninsula in South Bali.

Suluban Beach is world-renowned for its left-hand point break that is very popular among surfers, but there are plenty more fantastic things to do at Pantai Suluban other than surfing!

I have put together this complete guide to Suluban Beach including how to get there, how much it costs, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive.

HOW TO GET TO BLUE POINT BEACH?

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

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

ARRIVING AT PANTAI SULUBAN

There is a parking lot located at the top of Uluwatu Cliff near Suluban Beach and the fee for parking is 5,000 IDR for scooters and 15,000 IDR for a car.

From the parking lot, it’s approximately a 10-minute walk down a set of concrete stairs that zigzag past dozens of clifftop bars, small cafes, souvenir stores, and surfboard rental shops before you reach the Suluban Beach Cave.

On the way down to Pantai Suluban, you can stop into one of the locally run cafes to grab a light snack and a cold Bintang for around $5. Once you see the incredible view of Blue Point Beach on the way down, I guarantee you will want to stop for a minute.

The famous Uluwatu surf break lies adjacent to the Uluwatu cliff which offers the most incredible view of the surfers from above, all the while sipping back on a cold one.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SULUBAN BEACH

Once you’ve had a bite to eat and drink, continue to traverse down Uluwatu cliff via the concrete stairs which eventually emerge on the sand at the foot of the Suluban Cave.

There are always surfers that frequent Suluban Beach Cave who are either paddling out to surf or coming back in from a session. This is the main entry and exit point for surfers who are game enough to surf Uluwatu’s famous left-hand break at Blue Point Beach.

This beach is not the most ideal spot for swimming or sunbathing as the waves coming in and out of the Suluban Beach Cave are unpredictable and can potentially pose a risk of being washed out.

In saying this, I have been down to this particular spot on many occasions and as long you have some common sense and assess the conditions, Suluban Beach Cave is safe to explore.

HIDDEN SULUBAN BEACH

If you want to find a more ideal spot for swimming, mind your head crawling through the Suluban Beach Cave and find yourself on the sand shores at Hidden Beach.

This is my favorite Uluwatu beach to explore and chill on the entire Bukit Peninsula.

There is also an awesome shipwreck at the foot of Uluwatu Cliff on the southern end of Hidden Beach. It seems graffiti artists have used this wreck as their blank canvas to express their artworks.

SINGLE FIN ULUWATU – SUNSET BAR

Not only is Pantai Suluban one of the top places to visit in Uluwatu, but a sunset beer at Single Fin Uluwatu is also a must.

Every day of the week, Single Fin Uluwatu offers beers, snacks, live music, and the best views overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Single Fin Bar is best renowned for its famed ‘Sunday Sessions’ on the top of Uluwatu Cliff where resident and international DJs play hourly long live sets. It has people flocking to down Uluwatu Beach from all around the world just to experience a Sunday session at Single Fin.

Single Fin Uluwatu is by far my favorite spot to watch the sunset on the Bukit Penisula Bali, though you have to get there early as it gets super crowded and it’s hard to find a seat.

ULUWATU SURF

Uluwatu Surf is a very famous left-hand barreling reef break at Blue Point Beach. Uluwatu Beach is home to many international surf events throughout each year that attracts professional surfers from all around the world.

This particular Uluwatu beach can be surfed on all tides, but it typically breaks better on a mid to low tide.

The best months to surf is in the dry season between May and October. Pantai Suluban works best in offshore winds from the east and the ideal swell direction is from the south-west.

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

BEST TIME TO VISIT SULUBAN BEACH BALI

The best time to visit Suluban Beach Bali is during low tide, ultimately revealing more sandy beach spaces, easier access to explore the Suluban Beach Cave, and small rock openings that lead to Hidden Beach.

If you can’t time your visit at low-tide, I recommend visiting early morning before it gets too hot in the midday sun. You’ll also get to enjoy a few hours down on the beach to yourself before it gets too crowded.

If you decide to visit 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!
