Nunggalan Beach, Bali

Atmosphere and surroundings
Very beautiful beach. Snow-white sand and turquoise water. Come if you like to simply admire nature! There are two dilapidated boats lying on the shore, which add color to it.

There are also 5 Bubble Hotel capsules on the beach.

They look very curious, but next to them there are signs stating that you cannot enter the territory of these capsules and you cannot photograph them either.

During high tide, the waves are very strong. People only swim a couple of meters from the shore and don't venture further. During low tide, the water exposes the reef, making swimming problematic. However, it's great for refreshing oneself during a hot day. In the dry season, there are few algae in the water, but overall, the water is clean, transparent, and of a beautiful color.
Light beige, fine with some coarser grains. There are patches where black sand emerges on the surface, forming whimsical patterns with the white sand. In some places, the sand is slightly finer or coarser. However, overall, it's convenient for walking, and one's feet don't sink too deeply into it.

Weather and tides
Strong influence of tides.
Quite clean in areas directly next to the surf line. A little further, closer to the bushes, garbage begins. There is also organic, but there is a lot of plastic.

Cups, plastic bottles, labels. It's hard to say whether this litter was brought by storms from the sea or came from above during the rainy season. There are areas on the beach among the bushes that look like dumps of this litter. Sometimes tourists tidy up this litter a little and lie down to sunbathe a couple of meters away from it.

The descent and ascent are long and difficult in the heat. The descent takes 20-30 minutes. Not to say that the descent is very extreme. Yes, the steps are not concrete, but natural. But there are no dangerous areas where you could slip or fall during the dry season.

Just take your time when going down. Wear shoes without heels that fit securely on your feet. Along the way down, you'll encounter 2-3 warungs (small local eateries) where you can buy drinking water right on the trail. And at the bottom, there will be a couple of warungs with water and food as well. At a certain point, the trail splits downwards. Most people go right, where the trail is normal.
From the main road, follow the sign leading to Nunggalan Beach and simultaneously PLENILUNIO VILLA. That's where the villa's parking lot will be. There will be a sign indicating the way to the beach. It's all very clear.
There are hardly any. Down below, there are deserted areas because all the crowds gather around the wrecked boat. There are around 20-30 people at most (around 10 in the morning), and the majority are local surfers. In the evening, some locals join, but not many. In remote parts of the beach, there are nudist couples. In the central part of the beach, near the trail, photographers gather with models. Mostly during the day, 80% of visitors are tourists.
Parking costs 2,000 for a motorbike and 5,000 for a car. Entrance to the beach itself is free.
There are two warungs (small local eateries) on the beach and a few shaded areas. One of the warungs has four sun umbrellas.

There are no lounge chairs. However, most people simply lay out sarongs and sunbathe on them. In the warung, a large bottle of water costs 20,000 rupiahs, a small one 10,000 rupiahs, a coconut 25,000 rupiahs, fried noodles or fried rice 35,000 rupiahs. A sun umbrella costs 50,000 rupiahs.

There are no lifeguards on the beach. There are very dangerous waves and currents here! Don't take risks!
To the west of the beach is the equally deserted, inaccessible and wild Nyang Nyang Beach. At low tide it is difficult to reach from Nunggalan. They are separated by a small cape and a ridge of stones. At low tide this section can be walked.
