Nyang-Nuyang Beach; amazing privacy

Nyang-Nyang beach (or in the local manner Nyang2) I liked the charming atmosphere of the abandoned oceanic coast. Abandoned because there is a road, a quality descent straight to the beach, some signs of infrastructure. But at the time of my visit, I was the only person on the beach for all the three hours that I spent there. Let's just say, not the most passable place in Bali.

Beach description

Nyang Nyang is a neighbor of Nunggalan Beach. They are similar, like twins, and in many descriptions they figure as one beach - Nyang Nyang. I would agree with this, if not for three "buts". The cliffs between these beaches make it impossible to walk along the coast at high tide. And not at peak, too, with strong excitement. Second: Nunggalan still has a well-established toponym. And third, they each have their own special features.

A feature of Nyang Nyang, I would call a convenient descent to the ocean, with parking for a couple of dozen scooters. And a wide (up to 70 meters) terrace that adjoins the cliff. The cliff in this place is not steep, but crumbling, which simplified the construction of the road and created an additional oasis of greenery near the water. In the terrace, waves washed out small bays, 3-5 meters in radius. If you remove the garbage from them, it turns out to be cozy.

The sandy strip stretches for one and a half kilometers. Its width varies from 10 to 20 meters, but in general the beach is very uniform and straight. It is visible to the center almost entirely, if from the ocean it is not covered with clouds of salt fog. The sand is coarse, yellow, deep and with a heap of debris, which is not surprising: there is no one to clean up here. Nyang Nyang is a wild beach in Bali.

Entering the water, depth and waves

This beach is not suitable for swimming. There are many such beaches in Bali, and Nyang Nyang is no exception. The reef starts right from the coast, the bottom is rocky, crooked and alive. In calm weather, you can swim only at high tide, and if you are worried, then I do not recommend meddling for those who like jumping in the waves. Strong currents, lack of lifeguards and a rocky bottom - everything is against wild swimming here.

If locals come here, they wet their feet and take pictures at best. With the tide, the water leaves a hundred meters, exposing the uneven bottom with heaps of algae and stones. If you wear shoes, you can wander along the shore and look at the living creatures. Barefoot will quickly strip your feet.

Bali's beaches are highly ebb and flow dependent. Before the trip, I recommend that you install any surfer application on your smartphone that shows the peaks of the ebb and flow. This way you can plan your day optimally.

Sun beds and shadow

Only a few varungs have sun loungers for rent, who start working here at the beginning of the season. In low life, only sticks and remnants of synthetic fabric remain of these varungs. And piles of rubbish on the terrace behind the fence.

Nyang-Nuyang Beach; amazing privacy

Karma Kandara Hotel's private, inaccessible beach in the south of Bukit. White sand, high cliffs, privacy and an atmosphere of absolute relaxation. An expensive, luxurious place with a view pool, beach bars and full infrastructure of one hotel. Outsiders can get here, but there is a price threshold, so the audience is mostly of high quality. The beach is great at high tide.

Beach description

Karma Beach is located next to Melasti Beach, where you can walk right along the coast there and back at the peak of low tide. On the other side of Karma there are a series of small beaches with limited access. Karma Beach is approximately 300 meters long, and its width ranges from 10 to 20 meters. It resembles the letter "B" in shape, where the flat part is the surf.

The sand on Karma Beach is fine, light yellow, clean at any time of the day, soft and very loose. Karma Beach is definitely in my personal top “best beach in Bali” for its true chill-out and aesthetic excellence. Almost everything is ideal here, except for the left side of the beach, not far from the funicular.

Entering the water, depth and waves

In the center of Karma Beach, a protruding cliff bisects in half, on which blocks of Klive Beach Club Bali are piled. At high tide, it is impossible to get to the second half of the beach. The bottom is clean only 10-15 meters from the surf line, then stones, algae and sea urchins begin. All this you can see at the peak of low tide.

To the left of the funicular, metal pins are hidden under the water, and many of them occupy a decent area. At high tide they are not visible and walking there is fraught with injuries. If you plan to stay there for a long time, I recommend that you take a walk at the first low tide and mark for yourself the boundaries of a safe entrance to the ocean.

The beach is not shallow. And although there are reefs along the coast, quite powerful waves finish the beach, so that at high tide you will not even be able to go from one half of Karma Beach to the other. At low tide, the ocean leaves for 200 meters, leaving behind a lake of water and sandy bald patches. It doesn't look very good, but you can let the children splash around.

Bali's beaches are highly ebb and flow dependent. Before the trip, I recommend that you install any surfer application on your smartphone that shows the peaks of the ebb and flow. This way you can plan your day optimally.

Sun beds and shadow

They are. If at the entrance you buy an entrance ticket for 550K rupees (2,633 rubles), then 200 of them will go to pay for the funicular, and 300 can be spent in the Karma Kandara beach club. Including sun loungers.

There are sources of natural shade, under rocks or buildings on the beach. But a visit to Karma Kandar suggests that you came here to relax in a big way, and not to huddle with a towel under the pillars of the beach club.
