Bingin Beach

Very popular surf spot

What we say: 4 stars

Bingin follows on immediately from Impossibles, but unlike Impossibles is absolutely awash in accommodation.

It's almost as if the cliff face is built out, with everything from $2 shanties to quite fancy looking air-con villas, and it's all interconnected by a dog's breakfast of trails and staircases, all very slippery when wet. There are bars, warungs and even an internet cafe, all overlooking the water enjoying simply fabulous views over Bingin's terrific surf breaks.

Atop the cliff you've got a selection of salubrious spots to choose from, along with some downright great value family-run homestays. Bingin doesn't have the good eating that say Padang Padang does, but a variety of cheap local eateries can be found.

When the tide is out, the beach is a massive rock shelf covered with water pools. Let us clarify, a massive tremendously slippery rock shelf — watch your step! When the tide is in, much of the beach vanishes and you'll have to retreat to a warung or resort balcony of your choosing. Sigh.
