How to get to Bingin beach Bali

Bingin beach is located along the western coastline in the region Pecatu, surrounded by hilly landscapes with limestone cliffs and isolated small beaches. The best way to get to get around Bali is on a scooter. You can rent scooters in the main tourist hubs throughout Bali like Canggu, Seminyak, Kuta, Ubud, and Uluwatu. Expect to pay around 50,000 – 100,000 IDR per day to rent a scooter. The longer you will rent a scooter, the cheaper it gets (depending on your bar gaining skills 😉

From the Kuta, Seminyak or Canggu region, it’s approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey to this area of the island depending on traffic around Kuta. Alternatively, you can also rent a car or private driver if you are not comfortable driving a scooter yourself.


What to expect at Bingin beach

Once you arrive at the top of Bingin beach you’ll see that it is a dead end road. But broken surfboards make clear where to park your moped which costs 2,000 IDR.

From the car park, you’ll see signs on broken surfboards that lead you to the stairs where you can make your way down. First you walk through a small alley before getting a first glimpse of the beach. From the winding stairs along the cliff top houses you will get the feeling as if you’re in Greece. The homes here have a more Mediterranean style so you’ll almost forget that you’re in Bali! It’s only a few minutes of walking down the stairs so nothing too strenuous. 


Once your feet touch the sand you will feel that it’s perfect soft white sand. Very different than the beaches around Canggu. Restaurants are set up on the beach and serve food all day long. If you’re planning to stay the whole day then make sure to try the fresh fish on the BBQ at Lucky restaurant!

Bingin is also a very popular beach for surfers so you will see them often running up and down the beach to catch the waves. If you want to stay overnight then there are plenty of accommodations around Bingin with beautiful ocean view. 


Things to do at Bingin beach

There are many things to do at Bingin beach, but the main things are of course enjoying the beach, having a drink, surfing and snorkeling.

Surf at Bingin beach

Bingin Beach is one of the hotspots in Bali for surfing. So if you want to go surfing here, there are plenty of surf shacks at Pantai Bingin where you can rent boards from. Normal prices for rental surfboards are about 50,000 IDR for two hours. New to surfing? Ask for the options at the surfboard rental shacks to take a surf lesson! 


Restaurants at Bingin beach

The restaurants and cafes at Bingin beach are the perfect spot to have a drink in the shade and watch the surfers. There are some restaurants on the cliffs but also on the beach where you can hang out with your toes in the sand. 

Lucky Fish restaurant for example looks very inviting to order a fresh grilled fish from the BBQ with a cold coconut or Bintang. Imagine, sitting with your feet in the sand, with the sound of the waves in the background, catching the last beautiful colours of the sunset while eating a fresh fish, salad and rice. It doesn’t get any better at this magical place 🙂 Check the pictures we made during our evening here, it was unforgettable! Highly recommended to get here before sunset and order a fresh fish for on the BBQ!  


Explore Bingin beach

Exploring Bingin beach is fun! There are a lot of nice things to explore along the beach and in the water. Go south to find smaller hidden beaches where you can chill and take in the beautiful views without the interruption of too many other beach goers around. Or if you have a snorkel set, you can go snorkeling along the rocks and spot tiny tropical fishes or other marine life! If you’re planning to stay the whole day then make sure to watch the sunset. 


Take the tide into account

All the beaches in Bali are affected by the tide. This means that you need to take into account when it’s high tide or low tide. Especially when you want to surf, snorkel or do any other water activity. Check the tide times for this beach here
