Dreamland Beach in Bali truly lives up to its name. It is a stretch of glorious white sand undisturbed by any man-made construction. In fact, Dreamland Beach is among the “hidden beaches” of Bali, one of the very few without a Bali Golf Resort, a Holiday Resort, or a Spa Resort.
To reach this hidden beach, you need to walk about 5km northeast from Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort. It is much shorter if you walk along the beach, though, and not take the established roads. It is a part of the Bukit Peninsula and has a series of rugged limestone cliffs. The beach gained popularity – not to mention accessibility – with the development of Pecatu. With the area being explored more and more, the Dreamland beach became less of a rarity for visitors.
The Dreamland Beach is now a favourite spot for beach lovers, families on picnics, day trippers as well as among surfers. The world renowned reef breaks Balangan and Impossibles are within reach from the Dreamland beach, making it a go-to point for the surfers to paddle out from. If you are looking to simply enjoy a day at the beach, it is better to bring your own foldable chairs and picnic maps. However, there are parasols and deck chairs for rent here at a nominal price. In addition to that, you can indulge in a cheap massage at the Dreamland Beach. Although there are not that many food stalls around now, there are still enough for a snack.The number of food stalls increases during the tourist season and school holidays. However, as is with almost everything in Bali, make sure you bargain hard for both food and the massage. While certain parts of the sea are swimmable, it is advised that you refrain from venturing towards the sea too much due to the presence of strong currents.
