Protected from the wind the crystal clear waters are fantastic for snorkeling. Best location is around the little island at the end northern end of the beach. We are not very adventurous, but not far out we saw two stingrays. Why go to Bali?

We spent several hours here with our 3 year old and wow what a beach! Family friendly, gorgeous water, calm for swimming and generally quieter than other beaches nearby. We will definitely be back!

Just off Geordie bay this is quiet, secluded and beach amazing. Hidden gem, took over 30 mins via bikes.
