How to get to Suluban beach Uluwatu

Suluban beach Bali is located in Uluwatu on the southwestern tip of the island. The best way to get here is on your rental motorbike. You can easily rent motorbikes in all the main tourist areas such as Uluwatu, Seminyak, Kuta, Canggu and Ubud. Make sure to have an international drivers license and always wear a helmet!

Motorbike rental is mostly around 50,000 – 100,000 IDR per day depending on the model and CC’s of the motorbike you choose. Monthly prices range between 700,000 IDR and 1,500,000 IDR also depending on the model and your negotiation skills 😉 

From the Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu area, it’s about an hour drive to Suluban Beach Bali. But if you are not feeling comfortable driving a motorbike yourself, you can easily arrange a private driver with car. Or you can try GoJek or Bluebird as taxi. Both work via apps which makes it easy to order one and see the fixed price upfront. These apps always have fair prices, but are hated by the local taxi maffia who charge way higher prices. It can happen in the Uluwatu and Ubud region that BlueBird and GoJek don’t pick up because they made “unwritten rules” with the local taxi maffia about whose territory belongs to whom. Then they can only do drop off, so you’ll have to make a plan how to get back to your accommodation or pay way more to the taxi maffia. 


Suluban beach entrance fee

There are two entrances to Suluban beach Uluwatu. We always took the Single Fin entrance, and via both ways you need to walk down for about 10 minutes until you reach the beach. The beach is free to enter, but there is a parking fee at both parkings.

Beach entrance parking fee: 3,000 IDR.

Single Fin entrance parking fee: 5,000 IDR for a motorbike / 15,000 IDR for a car.


Best time to visit Suluban beach

The best time to visit Bali Suluban beach is during low tide. During that period the beach is, logically, wider so more space to relax. It’s also easier and safer to access and explore the Suluban Cave beach with its small rock openings that lead to the hidden beach with low tide.

The sunset in south Bali is stunning, so if you’re a sunset lover make sure to get here on time! Order a drink at one of the beach bars and find a good spot somewhere on the beach or on the cliffs at one of the beach bars.


What to expect at Suluban beach Uluwatu

Once arrived at the big car park, it’s only a winding 10-minute walk down a set of stairs before you reach the Suluban Beach Cave. During the walk down you will enter a sort of little ‘clifftop village’ with a few clifftop bars and warungs, souvenir shops and shacks where you can rent surfboards. It reminded us a little bit of Bingin beach, but the Suluban area is obviously more a combination of party and surfing, while Bingin is the more hidden and chill surf beach of Uluwatu.

The first thing you should know before you go to Suluban Beach Bali, is that you should check the tide times. If you’re going there to relax, you want it to be low tide to not get washed away by the waves. However, if you’re going to surf, you can visit at any time. You can check what time the tide is out here.

At Suluban Beach Cave you’ll often see surfers using this to enter the popular waves at Blue Point. The beach is maybe not the best spot for a relaxing day of tanning, but it is a great place to watch the surfers and have the feeling of a ‘secluded beach’.

The beach itself is completely different to all the other Bali beaches. It’s a real adventure, climbing down the winding stairs and exploring beneath the limestone cliffs and caves. Half of the beach area is located in the shade created by the caved cliff. Ideal if you are on the beach all day and need shelter from the scorching sun. The other half of the beach catches the sun all day long and has a fun piece of shipwreck on the beach. This beach is definitely one of our favourite Uluwatu beaches with so much things to offer and the adventurous feel it gives!


Things to do at Suluban beach Uluwatu

There are many different things to do at Suluban beach. Either for the active or relaxing people, you can choose to hit the beach, drink a beer or do some Bali water sports!


Before you find the beach, you will have to pass the Suluban Beach cave. It is very interesting to see how this cave is formed by the power of nature! If you’re looking for some shade, the cave is the best place to be!



It almost feels like a real adventure to find your way through the Suluban Beach Cave to reach hidden Suluban Beach. Surrounded by high limestone cliffs, you’ll soon understand why this is named as the ‘hidden beach’. On the southern end of the beach is a shipwreck to explore where graffiti artists decorated it. This is really cool to see, especially when you like street art! Another beach in Bali with shipwrecks on it is Nyang Nyang beach


The most popular water sports to do at this beach is without a doubt surfing. You will see surfers everywhere, and that’s for a reason… The Uluwatu Surf is a very popular reef break at Blue Point Uluwatu. This particular spot can be surfed on all tides, but it is at its best on a mid to low tide. The best months for surfing at Suluban Beach is from May to October during Bali’s dry season. 



A sunset drink at Single Fin Bali Uluwatu is an absolute must do when you’re in Uluwatu. Every day of the week Single Fin Uluwatu offers great vibes with drinks, live music and the best views on the Indian Ocean and sunset. But, Single Fin Bar is most renowned for their ‘Sunday Sessions’ when DJs are playing live sets. So if you’re around on a Sunday, you can’t miss Single Fin! But make sure to get there early as it can get super crowded.


Other spots you can’t miss in Uluwatu

Besides exploring the beautiful beaches in Uluwatu, there are plenty of other places to explore in Uluwatu.
