Outside of town Ubud has some wonderful hidden beaches with clear calm waters and volcanic black sand!
Candi Dasa

Candi Dasa does not have any beaches but rather a rocky shoreline exposed directly to the ocean. When the weather is stormy the waves crash against the shoreline further giving this remote unspoilt feel which you don’t get in a lot of Bali.

Sanur

Sanur Bali Sanur is a serene seaside town with a white powdery beach, clear water, and shops peppered along the centre of town - ideal for long days of simply unwinding at the beach. But don't get the wrong idea, this little enclave also packs a powerful punch in terms of what it has to offer cultural-wise. From beautiful handicraft markets to temples such as the beautiful Pura Haning Batur and tasty local restaurants serving authentic Indonesian delicacies, Sanur is truly an area brimming with surprises! There is a reason the locals call Sanur “The Island of the Gods”. Sanur is a great place to take surf lessons or go further afield on an overnight boat trip and camp at some of the undeveloped coastline.
Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is famous for its scuba diving where seeing the giant devil rays is relatively normal and the magnificent manta rays (mola mola) in certain seasons.

Canggu

Canggu Bali Canggu is a hip trendy town attracting a local and international community of those who want to get away from it all and commune with the Indian Ocean. It's an eclectic place so don't expect any rules on what is in or out fashions-wise!

If you're seeking foodie delights, then look no further than locally grown ingredients cooked according to classic Balinese tastes, cooked fresh right before your very eyes!
