Tegal Wangi Beach In Bali – The Ultimate Guide

Pantai Tegal Wangi is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike who flock here to watch the sunset from the cliffs or to go swimming in the rock pools along the pristine shoreline.

In this guide, you’ll find everything you need to know including how to get there, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive.

HOW TO GET TO TEGAL WANGI BEACH? 

If you are staying in the Jimbaran region, I recommend renting a scooter and making the short drive over to Pantai Tegal Wangi.

For those of you who are coming from Kuta, Seminyak, or Canggu, it’s approximately a 45-minute 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.

Includes:

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

ARRIVING AT PANTAI TEGAL WANGI

There is a small parking lot on the left-hand side when you arrive.

Sometimes the gates to the parking lot are open and you can park inside for a small fee of 2,000 IDR.

If the gates are locked, you can park anywhere outside the gates on the gravel patches.

You will see a dirt trail from the parking lot that leads directly to the top of the cliffs; from here it’s an easy walk down onto the shoreline.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT TEGAL WANGI BEACH?

The viewpoint at the top of the cliffs when you first arrive offers spectacular views of the rugged coastline and the stunning blue waters along the southern beaches.

The furthest headland you can see in the distance from this viewpoint is the more popular Balangan Beach.

TEGAL WANGI ROCK POOLS

Take the stairs down to the beach below the cliffs and discover the several natural rock pools that can be found on top of the exposed coral reef.

These natural rock pools fill up with water with each crashing wave that rolls in from the ocean.

At sunset, you can put your photography skills to the test and try to get a fantastic reflection photo along the edge of the rock pools.

PANTAI TEGAL WANGI CAVES

Stroll along the sand to the very end of the beach until you can go no further, and you will find two caves underneath the cliffs.

The first cave is a small little dugout in the cliff that is progressively becoming larger with the bigger swells that hit this particular coastline.

The second cave is much larger and more impressive than the first. It’s around five meters tall and five meters deep.

This is the perfect secluded spot to lay down a sarong and listen to the waves echo throughout the cave as they crash onto the shoreline.

You can take a photo from inside the cave for another cool perspective facing out over the horizon.

BEST TIME TO VISIT

The best time of day to visit is late afternoon at sunset. Because of its west-facing location, it’s low-key one of the best spots to watch the sunset in the Jimbaran region.

In saying that, Pantai Tegal Wangi is at its busiest during this time and it can sometimes be hard to find a nice spot along the beach or on the cliffs to watch the sunset.

Just keep this in mind when planning your visit.

If you want to enjoy this beach without the crowds, it’s probably best to visit in the early morning hours.

  1. Hi Jonny, great blog! I thinking about going on your recommendation for Canang Sari Villas. How long ago was it that you stayed there? There seem like some people remarks on the state of place while other loves it. It is a very cheap place for what you get and perhaps they are lacking a bit in maintenance? As long as we know what to expect Im sure we will love it. Thinking about the Jepun Villa

  2. Thank you for this site- it’s been my go-to for all questions while putting together my itinerary for Bali! I was curious if it’s possible to walk along the sand to go from beach to beach? We are staying near Balangan Beach but I would like to walk to Tegal Wangi.

    • Hi Amanda, thanks for using my blog to help you plan your adventures. I am glad you have found it useful. Unfortunately you can’t walk along the sand to reach tegal wangi from balangan, you’ll have to drive there and walk down from the top of the carpark. Hope this helps and enjoy.
