Every year May through October the southerly trade winds roll in off the Indian Ocean like clockwork, making it possible to fly the southern coast of the Bukit Peninsula, from the Nikko Bali Hotel at Nusa Dua to the Puri Bali Villas at Nyang-Nyang. A total of 12 kilometres of soarable ridge ranging from 100 to 1,000 feet above sea level, suited for novice through to advanced paraglider pilots.

Whether your goal is to experience passage on a tandem flight, to undertake a paragliding course and eventually fly solo as pilot in command, or perhaps to bring your canopy on holiday for a Bali paragliding tour, you’re invited to join us at Timbis for some sun and fun in the skies at our local flying sites.

Our professional team of safety conscious pilots and instructors have thousands of hours of flying experience and the flight safety officer lives onsite at Timbis. He knows the local conditions better than anyone!

We can also help arrange accommodation near the flying sites, land based transport (private hire or with driver), onsite equipment storage, porterage services and local guides as required.

Pendawa Beach

Pendawa Beach

Pendawa-Beach_ton

Definitely qualifies as a secret beach because of its unique location below towering limestone cliffs. This quiet and relaxing powdery white sand beach with blue-green water is on the Bukit Peninsula. Take the road to the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) cultural park. After passing the park gate, drive on until you reach an intersection, then take a left past the banjar office of Kutuh village.

Ask for directions if in doubt. The approach leading to the beach is on a smooth asphalted road through black rocky hills. Parking is Rp3000 for motorcycles, Rp6000 for cars. At the entrance you’ll pass statues of the five brothers of the Pendawa clan from the Mahabharata epic – Yudistira, Bima, Arjuna and the twins Nakula and Sadewa. The view from the top is outstanding.

This natural beach doesn’t get so many tourists, so public facilities are minimal. A shower and bathroom are provided to refresh you after swimming or surfing. No real restaurant; only stalls and cafes selling drinks, snacks and local food. Seaweed farmers dry their harvest, though their area of planting is decreasing because of the rapid development of coastal tourism.

Tents and kursi malas (a kind of sofa) sit in a row and are for rent. The big waves roll in by the early afternoon. If you want to see the sunrise, be here very early in the morning. A jogging/cycling track runs along the waterfront. Paragliding rides (Rp500,000-Rp750,000, depending on length) will give you an amazing aerial view over the whole environs.

Jerman Beach

Jerman-Beach-800

German contractors lived on this beach in Tuban while constructing the airport in the 1970s, thus the name Jerman meaning German in Indonesian. This white sand beach south of Kuta, in the vicinity of the Ngurah Rai Airport, is also popularly known as Pasih Perahu Beach.

Considerably quieter and more relaxing than its neighbor to the northwest, Jerman is protected by a reef, thus the waters are safer for families. Umbrellas are for rent and tukang pijat (masseuses) and clothes and souvenir sellers sit under the shady trees waiting for customers.

Long ago this strip of coast used to be a trading port and a dozen traditional jukung still line the beach. The boats rarely put out nowadays due to the unpredictable weather that forces them to go further and further from shore. Now the fishermen rent their boats to tourists for rides to the surf.

Nearby Celuk Waru Temple, built in the shape of a boat, encloses a fresh water spring and a statue of Baruna, the HIndu God of the Sea. Only Bali Hindus are allowed inside the temple, but visitors can view the interior from the outside. A well-maintained footpath along the beach is used by walkers, joggers and cyclists.

A budget to stay is Trisna Garden House,
Jl. Karang Tenget 11, tel. 0361 742-2221, mobile 081-999-570-571, charging for single or double only Rp200,000 for a room or Rp260,000 for a bungalow with a/c, private baths, hot water, fridge, TV parking. Excellent value for the money.

Mengiat Beach

Mengiat-Beach_ton-800

Although located inside Nusa Dua’s BTDC complex, fronting the Grand Hyatt, Ayodya, St. Regis Hotels and Amanusa Beach Club, this vast and lovely stretch of white soft sand can be unexpectedly empty. The public portion may be accessed without staying in any of the luxurious aforementioned five-star hotels.

Mengiat is usually clean and well maintained with locals raking the sand in the mornings while the hotels maintain their beachfronts. Also called Nusa Dua Beach, it’s especially popular with local Bali expats and families. Protected by an offshore reef that prevents waves from breaking on the beach, the water is calm, shallow, easily swimmable and ideal for children.

There are stunning views, gorgeous clear blue water, volleyball games and women braiding hair and offering massages. Loads of activities: flying fish, donut, banana boat, jet ski, parasailing, etc. Sellers on the beach are friendly and not annoying. Visit the blowhole, walking distance from the small lookout. Get there early before the tide goes out in the early afternoon, exposing a huge expanse of coral. If you take goggles rock pools in the shallows reveal puffer fish, hermit crabs, sea urchins and baby lobsters.

Local fishermen still cast their nets in the surf, put in their boats to fish before sunrise and launch traditional jukung to take surfers out to the reef. Surfboards are for rent but this coast is not the best for snorkeling. Glass bottom boats frequent the area. Sunbathers are charged Rp25,000 to rent a lounge chair and umbrella all day. Showers, lockers and restroom facilities are available.

A beachside restaurant, run by the village-based fisherman’s cooperative Yasa Segara, serves great seafood. Parking is reasonable and safe. The entrance to Mengiat is near the exit of BTDC across from the Courtyard Marriott. See the sign for Jl. Pantai Mengiat, then head straight down a quiet road for 600 meters until you reach the beach.

Keramas Beach

Keramas-Beach_ton-800

A prime example of one of Bali’s undiscovered untouristed beaches is Keramas Beach in Gianyar Regency on the island’s east coast, which hosts international surfing competitions. Located in Blahbatuh District, this uncrowded black sand beach has consistent high performance waves as high as two meters with the right tide and wind speed. Last June, Keramas held the Oakley Pro Bali competition between the world’s top 34 professional surfers from 30 countries.

To get there, follow Jl. Bypass Ida Bagus Mantra northeast and take the uneven sand and gravel road for Keramas village. The only sign is the one announcing Komune Beach, the area’s only hotel. The only visitor complaints are limited parking (there’s no parking lot to speak of) and lack of facilities which means that the locale is not prepared to accommodate the hundreds of people that show up for international surf events. If you don’t have transportation, you’ll have to hire a taxi and driver to shop, tour the area and visit other restaurants.

Komune is a safe and well-managed resort designed for surfers. Rooms are modern, stylish and clean with comfortable beds and screened louvers so you can keep the shutters open and don’t have to use air conditioning. Fresh well-prepared food, great pizzas and delicious coffee, attentive English-speaking staff and quality affordable massages in the spa are its most notable aspects. It’s a beautiful two minutes walk through the resort’s vegetable gardens to get to the amazing beachside pool area from where you can watch the epic surf break. This hotel is the only place along this stretch of beach that can guarantee you quiet and isolation.
