Nyang Nyang Beach (Pantai Nyang Nyang) is without a doubt one of the most beautiful beaches in Uluwatu, stretching an impressive 1.5km along the southern coast of Bali. With pristine white sand and the turquoise blue water of the Indian Ocean, Nyang Nyang Beach is truly breahtaking.

We’d read older guides for Nyang Nyang Beach and had expected (dreaded) quite a hike to the bottom of the cliff where the beach sits, but thankfully a lot of work has been done to the road to make it easier to access the beach. Here, you’ll find the most updated guide to Nyang Nyang Beach so you know just what to expect before you visit.

Best time to visit Nyang Nyang Beach (Pantai Nyang Nyang)

The best time to visit Nyang Nyang Beach (Pantai Nyang Nyang) really depends on what you’re there to do. If you’re there to surf, you can check the forecast here, but if you just want to explore this stunning beach then you’re in luck because it’s pretty great any time of day, particularly for sunrise when there’s no one else around. If you’re there to work on your tan, midday to sunset is great as well. You really can’t go wrong.

How to get to Nyang Nyang Beach

Nyang Nyang Beach is on the western coast of Uluwatu, 5 minutes from the famous Uluwatu Temple. The great news is that the road leading to this Uluwatu beach has recently been developed, so gone are the days of hiking a mile to the bottom of the cliff. It’s one of the few beaches in Uluwatu where you can now drive your scooter all the way to the entrance of the beach, just take it slow as the road is very steep.

Nyang Nyang Beach Entrance Fee

As of right now, there isn’t an entrance fee, however, there is a parking fee of 2000 IDR. There are also a bunch of little beach bars and shacks selling refreshments so you should bring some spare change.

Travel Hack

If you get there early enough in the morning you might beat the parking attendant which means free parking!

What to expect at Nyang Nyang Beach In Uluwatu

Firstly, we’re gonna address the elephant in the room – or should we say airplane? The first thing you might notice at Nyang Nyang Beach is the giant decommissioned plane perched atop the cliff. The retired boeing is going to be turned into a Private Jet Villa, the first of its kind inf Bali (maybe the world?).

We first saw the plane from this viral reel by Bali photographer @koming.darmawan and had dreams of recreating it, however, work has begun to turn it into a Private Jet Villa, so the best we could do was a drone shot.

Down by the shore, you’ll find some development dotted along the beachfront. A handful of small beach shacks and bars await, with ice cold drinks to fight the Bali heat. We noticed some larger restaurants and resorts being built, so we won’t be surprised if Nyang Nyang Beach becomes fully developed in the not-so-far future.

Nyang Nyang Beach is one of the longest stretches of white sand you’ll find in Uluwatu. Whilst there are plenty more popular surf breaks in Bali, Nyang Nyang Beach still attracts its fair share of surfers, but aside from them there were very few other tourists beach bumming on the sand. And with a beach that long, you’re bound to get your own spot without anyone too close.

After walking along the sand for a while, we found a spot to sit for a while to just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet – and play with dogs.
