Bali has four beaches, which are formed in sandy coves with nice greenish waters. The beaches are almost always calm since the bay of Bali faces to the west. They all are suitable for children and well organized with sun beds, umbrellas, shops and restaurants.
There are also some beautiful beaches close to our villas that we suggest you visit. Please check:
- Panormos (12.3km): Panormos beach is a beautiful sandy beach which is fully organized with sun beds and umbrellas, showers, water sports etc ideal for families. The beaches are sandy and have clear waters.
- Geropotamos (16km): The beach is named after the homonym river that empties in the east end of the beach. The small beach is sandy and has crystal clear water, which is very cool because of the river, which has water all year round and forms a small deep lake near the shore. It is slightly organized with umbrellas and a canteen that offers refreshments, coffee, water and food supplies. Despite the easy access, it is always quiet and not crowded. However, the orientation of the shore makes it vulnerable to north winds.
- Agia Pelagia (31km):The beach is a long and narrow beach with sand and greenish waters. Also the water is almost always calm and the bay forms a tranquil harbor. The beach offers many options for water sports, diving, umbrella and food, etc.
