Bingin Beach, Uluwatu - 2019 (Photos & Reviews)

About Bingin Beach

One of the most secluded beaches in the Pecatu region of Bali, Bingin Beach overflows with a rustic Bohemian charm. This white sanded, tropical beach has a clear shoreline and an amazing landscape with tall cliffs engulfing the beach. Bingin beach is away from the clattering tourist crowd giving its visitors the most needed privacy and space to enjoy a laid back beach holiday.

As the sun sets, the skies are filled with a riot of colors from various shades of yellow and orange to crimson red filling an onlooker's soul with sheer awe for this place.

Because of the rocky shoreline, swimming in Bingin Beach is not advisable. The cliffs around the beach offer panoramic views of the scenery around and the hike up the cliffs is easy and rewarding.

Bingin Beach is a paradise for water bums who love to surf, sun bath, eat, and repeat. Surfing is the most popular water sport at Bingin Beach. The waves at Bingin beach are just so perfect to maneuver the winds; particularly during the high tides.

There are many warungs, and eateries all along the coastline where you can relish on delicious seafood. These eateries spread their tables on the beach in the evenings, and some of them even offer romantic candle-light dinners.
