Blue Lagoon

Great for a spot of snorkelling

What we say: 4 stars

One of the better things to do when visiting Padang Bai is to lounge at the picturesque Blue Lagoon beach. Once here you can also hire snorkelling gear to see the underwater life.

The beach is accessed by following Jalan Silayukti east and then taking a left when you reach the junction. Following the road uphill, you will reach a sign pointing you to a car park on the right where a local person may or may not try and ask for a parking fee if you're driving a vehicle. From here, a path leads down into a small bay with a sandy beach. A cafe sells food and drinks and masseuses offer massages.

Snorkelling can be done right off the beach but can be unpleasant during high winds and rough seas. At these times, it's more fun to watch others getting battered by the breaking waves rather than getting battered yourself. Snorkelling gear can be rented for 15,000 rupiah per day.
