Suluban Beach is one of Bali's most distinctive shores, framed by limestone cliffs and covered in powdery golden sand. Its looming cliff face provides some shade for sunbathers, while pro surfers come here for the epic reef breaks.
Check the tide times before planning your trip. Also, note that there are monkeys in the area—keep an eye on your belongings.
Suluban Beach isn’t as easy to get to as other beaches in Bali, but it was worth the effort of walking down a series of staircases down a cliffside near Uluwatu. The payoff? Light, soft sand and an ocean with the clearest, warmest water that was just perfect for swimming.

The path to the beach is steep, so wear sturdy footwear.
