The Blue Point Beach in Bali is also known by locals as the Suluban Beach. The road to the beach itself is unique thanks to two large cliffs that form a hallway through which the traveler must pass in order to arrive at the beautiful and calm shore. There are many nearby Bali resorts in close proximity to this popular recreational venue where many tourists and locals like to spend their day.
Close to the beach is the famous Uluwatu Temple of Bali, which is perched atop a cliff and offers a magnificent and uninterrupted view of the sunset. Tourists who wish to play audience to a traditional Fire Dance or Kecak Dance can also enjoy it from up here. Quite a few resorts and accommodations such as the Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort lie in areas with easy access to the Blue Point beach and the fabled temple, making these convenient locations for tourists to reside at.
Reachable via public transport or driving, the Blue Point beach is adorned with steep cliffs, seas and big waves. The nature of the waves makes it an idyllic surfing arena and you will be able to watch some skilled surfers take on the powerful waves. Swimming and sunbathing are also popular activities in the area. The shallow seabed looks green in colour and in the deeper parts, the water takes on a shade of dark blue which is handy when deciding which areas you want to avoid in a swim. The beach also hosts a variety of cafes and food stalls that offer a range of cuisines. Sun beds are also placed on the beach in order to give visitors a place to unwind. It must be noted that the beach is not usually considered a safe place to visit for families with children, however, as the beach is scattered with sharp rocks, and the sheer size of the waves can be intimidating and dangerous at times. On the other hand, if you are looking to enjoy a good view of the sunset, Blue Point Beach is the best possible place to be.
