Many of Bali’s beaches may not be as pristine as the deserted white sand beaches of your dreams, but we’ve found a little piece of paradise at White Sand Beach, just past the tourist hotspots of Kuta and Sanur!
One of Bali’s best kept secrets, White Sand Beach (or Pantai Pasir Putih), is just north of Candidasa, hidden away at the end of an easily-missed road. You’ll probably need to ask a local or two to find the way, but once you’ve navigated the pot-holes and twists and turns, you’ll be rewarded with a postcard-perfect beach complete with white sand, turquoise sea and coconut trees. In the last few years, word has slipped out about this beach, so it’s not deserted as it once was but it’s still one of Bali’s quietest and most beautiful beaches and well worth spending a day there.
Hang out, take a dip in the ocean and enjoy a fresh juice from one of the beachside warungs!
A great family day outing to one of Bali's few remaining unspoiled beaches!
Sun-seekers, beach bums, and families on the hunt for a slice of paradise off the beaten path.
You can also reach Pantai Pasir Putih by boat from Candidasa - a fun alternative to going by road!
