Yet to be found by the right developer, Pererenan Beach is for you if you want your sand windswept and your waves unridden. It’s an easy 300m further on from Echo Beach across sand and rock formations (or over 1km by road). This also marks the end of any walk that followed the vast sweep of sand that begins near the airport.
Once you’ve found it, why leave? The friendly guys at Pondok Wisata Nyoman have four simple rooms (although the bathrooms have a certain colourful flair) just behind the beach. There are also a couple of good cafes here that don’t have the mobs of Echo Beach but still enjoy sweeping surf views.
