Beaches in Bali are the popular attractions for tourists. Most of the Bali beaches are pristine and beautiful. Every beach is unique, and some became popular for different reasons. Every year the majority of the tourists and travelers do visit Bali to explore many beautiful beaches. And almost all popular beaches are located in the southern part of Bali. During my six days solo trip to Bali, I explored some popular and beautiful beaches in Southeast, Southwest and North Bali. However, here are the 8 top beaches in Bali worth to visit for all.
Most of all during peak seasons (July – August) popular beaches are overcrowded with many tourists around the world. All beaches are free for visitors apart from Padang Padang. You have to buy the ticket to explore this beach. I loved the atmosphere and unique beauty of the Padang Padang beach. I found Balinese offerings (Canang Sari) even placed on every sandy beach. This offering was something new for me. A kind of unique Balinese believes in thanking and praising their Gods everywhere.
