About Gunung Payung Beach, Bali

Taking its name from the temple up on the cliff, the Pura Dhang Kahyangan Gunung Payung, this beach isn’t the easiest to access, but is definitely worth getting to. Approach the cliffs past the temple and look for a long flight of steps that lead down - about 300 of them - and remember that you’ll have to climb all those steps back up. The remote location and the difficult access keep both the normal number of tourists and vendors away, creating a Hidden Gem. There are usually very few people here. The reefs out in the water create a natural wave break, which means these crystal clear waters are relatively calm. There is a small cave here too. Obviously, this is not a good beach for watersports.

Gunung Payung Beach, Bali Reviews

  • Better get your stair climbing legs ready! This secluded little beach is a haven for surfers who seeking the perfect wave. As per usual in Bali, you need to pay for access, it is possible to bargin with them though. The view from the top is amazing and you won't be disappointed with the beautiful beach below. It is tidal though so there may not be much sand at high tide. At low tide you can walk out to the red edge and explore the shallows

  • Visiting between wet to dry season, enjoy the green grass cliff a few steps before the beach. White sand beach and clear blue water are perfect to swim when low tide. Beach is about 150 steps down the parking area. My advise, bring more food and water for your energy, otherwise you will be exhausted.

  • A wonderful white sand beach with turquoise waters completely deserted from the tourists. A little paradise in the crowded south. Few advices though bef you get there. 1. There are few steps to go down the beach. It is safe but quite a work out in the heat. 2. The beach is now deserted so bring whatever you, water... Worthy though it is really beautiful.

  • This is the best private beach so far since the last i visited Bali in Des 2017. Not so many visitors, clean and clear sand and water. Nice view of sunrise and sunset. U can go topless if u dare.

  • Excellent serenity. Stairs are tiring but worth it. Water is clear, waves are far away off shore, good for kids.
