Beachfront and cute
Volcano Beach is a cute little beachside enclave just a little down towards Gunung Agung from Lily Amed and Kadek Homestay.
They only have a handful of rooms but the setting around a compact garden with a great shade tree is a step above some of its neighbours. We were not able to see inside a room as they were full when we visited, but the friendly staffer said all rooms are fan-cooled with showers and WiFi. Rooms are in a white concrete longhouse setup and have a small terrace -- this is a compact setting and you will get to know your neighbours. We liked the beachside table settings (and the lone sun recliner) along with the warm greeting from the staff. Nearby Kadek Homestay offers air-con for less than here, but we preferred the more intimate and personable feel here. As the name suggests, there are terrific volcano views to be had and you’re right on the beach.
