Nearby Beaches and cliff top Bars/Clubs
A small path beside Villa Sol y Mar leads down the hillside to the golden sands of Nunggalan Beach below. It is around a 15 minute steep walk down the hill along a small path through natural vegetation, and not for the old nor the infirm, but the rewards are manifold upon reaching the shores of Nunggalan Beach. Despite it being one of the most beautiful beaches in Bali, it is one of the most hidden and there are very few people other than a few surfers enjoying this beautiful spot.
Aside from Nunggalan beach, there are a few beaches we recommend you to visit:
Nyang-Nyang beach is on the bay adjacent to Nunggalan beach and the access is around 2 kms before Uluwatu temple. You can also walk from Nunggalan beach at very low tide. Padang-Padang Beach is a world famous surfing beach 15 mins drive from Villa Sol y Mar. It’s a very quaint beach but very popular. Balangan Beach is also a popular surfing beach around 30 ins drive from Sol y Mar. Finally, Nusa Dua area also has very nice beaches, mostly populated with the guests of the luxury resorts in the area but it has some stretches of beach with public access. Nusa Dua beach is around 30 mins drive from Villa Sol y Mar. It is ideal for swimming and snorkelling and has plenty of places to eat and drink while you enjoy the sea breeze.
There are also 2 beach clubs with very good infrastructure and F&B facilities, both a 20 mins drive from villa Sol y Mar and both offer day passes to daily guests. Sundays Beach Club, below Uluwatu Cliff Resort and Karma beach club in Karma Kandara Resort.
We would also recommend a few of our favourite clifftop day clubs and cafes with stunning views, music, good food and great atmosphere; Omnia is the newest and trendiest clifftop club, featuring international DJ’s in an incredible setting, Ulu Cliffhouse, Oneeighty Bali, Single Fin, perched at the top the most famous surfing beach in Bali: Uluwatu.
