Honeymoon Beach Jimbaran Bali is a highly underrated beach, along Bali’s southwest coast. Not yet known to many tourists, it remains mostly pretty quiet as the only visitors are locals and the occasional foreigner here and there. This will likely change as tourism continues to grow in Bali.
If you’re planning a visit to Bali and are heading to the Jimbaran area, you definitely need to add Honeymoon Beach to your itinerary for sunset one evening. We’ve put together this guide outlining everything you need to know about Honeymoon Beach Jimbaran Bali, from when to go, how to get there, and what to expect.
Best time to visit Honeymoon Beach Jimbaran Bali
With its vantage point atop a cliff, Honeymoon Beach is a great place to visit for sunset. You can spend your afternoon on the sand then head up onto the cliffs to watch the sun go down.
How to get to Honeymoon Beach in Jimbaran
By far the best way to get around Bali is by scooter – this island is just not made for cars. Most accommodations will be able to arrange a scooter rental for you, and if you hire for multiple days you can usually haggle down to around 60,000 IDR per day. If you’re not comfortable driving in Bali, you can always hire a private driver online.
It’s a little tricky getting to Honeymoon Beach Bali, as Google Maps leads you to the Tegal Wangi Beach parking lot in front of the temple. Instead, follow this pin which will take you to the turn off for Honeymoon Beach, about 500 metres before the Tegal Wangi Beach parking lot.
From there, turn right and take the dirt road until you reach the very end where you will see a little canopy with no roof. This is where you park for Honeymoon Beach Bali.
What to bring to Honeymoon Beach
Honeymoon Beach Bali Entrance Fee
Unlike many other beaches in Bali, there is No Entrance Fee or parking fee for Honeymoon Beach. You might want to bring some spare change for the local food vendors if you want a snack.
What to expect at Honeymoon Beach
After you park you’ll walk out onto the grassy, limestock cliffs overlooking the stunning Indian Ocean. You can set up a towel or picnic blanket anywhere atop the cliff to watch sunset, and you’ll likely have a spot all to yourself as it’s a very spacious area with few other visitors. If you arrive near sundown there may be a few vendors selling local snacks which make for great picnic treats.
If you continue right another 100 metres you’ll see the actual Honeymoon Beach Bali, a small but beautiful patch of soft, golden sand tucked behind the rocks. The beach itself is very quiet as most of the locals chose to hang out on the cliff instead.
Beach bumming is the main activity of choice at Honeymoon Beach Bali, however we did spot a few people fishing. Two young children also went out for a little surf directly in front of the beach, but it’s not the best surf spot as the waves quickly crashed onto the beach.
If you do head down onto the beach, make sure you head back onto the cliff for sunset as it has the best vantage point to watch the sun drop below the horizon.
