Yeh Gangga Beach

Stunning sunsets, regular ceremonies

What we say: 4 stars

The beach at Yeh Gangga isn't considered to be safe for swimming due to its treacherous currents but it makes for some very pleasant wandering.

While people have drowned on this beach when all they wanted to do was have a dip in the ocean, it remains popular with surfers who head out daily to try their skills at the punishing waves with some success.

Better than this for the average visitor is a walk along the beach which stretches for many kilometres in both directions. It is sometimes full with locals playing football, sitting in the shallows and eating grilled corn.

The scene is a stunning one as the sun sets over Java in the distance and many ceremonies everyday take place as the ashes of the recently cremated are cast into the ocean. A truly remarkable part of Bali.
