Great surfing spot, unfortunately getting increasingly crowded. If you get up early enough you can have some great sessions though. Just know your etiquette! For non-surfers... read more

The beach has great waves for surfers. Our shoes did get stolen on the beach though. The sand is black. You have to pay for loungers on the beach also.

We came many times to this beach. If you go here, do not forget to go to Ketut's Warung. It is one of the lasts ones. It's small, but Ketut is the kindest person in the whole world. He does not look for business, he is a good friend. He sell ​​the best cold coconuts on the beach and have... More

Will stay closer to this beach when I come back as it still isn't overly crowded when compared to Seminyak. Not overly developed.

Initially I wasn't thrilled by Echo Beach - I'm used to the soft white sand and beach breaks of Australia that I'm used too, while here it's a dark volcanic sand I initially though of as dirty. However, I fell in love with the dark sands, warm waters, and consistent surf. Loved it, stayed near here for 2 months and... More

Great surfing spot, unfortunately getting increasingly crowded. If you get up early enough you can have some great sessions though. Just know your etiquette! For non-surfers there's some lovely places for food, but bear in mind this isn't a swimming beach!

Lots of trash even in the water. Not good for surfers due to surf schools and students clogging the breaks.

This beach is the best. You can get two beds and an umbrella for 50k. The surfer view is priceless! Love it! Sunsets are beautiful here.

Overall a nice beach, but hard to enjoy with all the rubbish. Plastic, broken glass, a nappy! Some of this seems to be coming from the waterways the flow into the ocean, but a lot is coming from the tourists - drinking, eating, smoking on the beach and leaving their rubbish behind. People, please! Do your bit and take your... More

Went here to surf and the waves were good but crowded. Always wanted to surf the right-hander here. Waves were really good early morning but always crowded.

This is a great spot to relax after a long day in the surf at Old Mans or Echo Beach. I happened upon it while strolling the beach one afternoon and stopped for a cold Bintang. The service and atmosphere where great and I returned the next evening for dinner. Again the sunset was amazing (see pictures I have included)... More
