4. Gunung Payung Beach

Gunung Payung beach is the ultimate hidden beach of southeastern Bali. It is relatively more challenging to access this beach. The only access is through Gunung Payung Cultural Park in Kutuh, and there will be a road that zig-zags down the grassy sloping plains.

After a couple hundred flights of stairs, you reach the bottom. Taking a look back on where you came from, you can see how the hillside connects with the surrounding hills that drop down to the water below. Many are covered with lush vegetation, making the area windy and full of fresh air. Stay at The Balé Nusa Dua, want to visit these secret beaches?
