Indonesia Bali South Kuta Badung Regency

Padang Padang Beach

A hidden, picturesque surfers' haven in South Kuta, known for its clear waters, white sand, and accessible via a unique hollow rock entrance.

Tips from the community

A few clicks north of Uluwatu’s iconic reef is the small sandy inlet of Padang Padang. It’s got two separate breaks in its roster: Baby Padang and Padang Padang proper. The first is something simple for beginners and intermediates, offering a softly breaking ride that’s created by the mixing of sand and reef just beyond the shore. The latter is a gnarly blue tube that’s sculpted in the ilk of the Banzai Pipeline. It crashes right in from the open ocean straight onto jagged corals – experts only. Make sure not to get the two mixed up!

Padang Padang is so chill. If you go, I'd recommend going down via Dreamsea Surf Camp's entrance — it's the dreamiest view ever (living up to its namesake clearly).

  • Bali: Best beaches around the island

    I've been living here for almost 10 months (!!) which is crazy to me — and I've had a lot of time to explore the various beaches that this island is so well-known for. My favorites are definitely down in Uluwatu, but there are plenty of unique finds across the island. It just depends what you're into. Between water sports, lounging, day cocktails, or marine life — there's plenty of options for every preference.
