One place that isn’t on the road with all the others is the Alam Balian Homestay which feels as if you are entering a jungle village.

Photo of Alam Balian Homestay
Situated on the road to the left before reaching the Balian River if travelling from the east, this Homestay has a handful of bamboo shacks on stilts among a lush forest. They are basic, but clean with a mattress on the floor, mosquito net and individual downstairs outdoor bathroom. Mosquito repellent here is a must despite the presence of mosquito nets because it is located right in the middle of the jungle. Upon arrival, you will be required to call Ketut on (081) 236 057 250 so he can show you around and tell you if a room is available. Those without own transport will need to walk 200m from the turnoff. This is a fantastic (albeit super basic) secret spot and is a real find for those on a tight budget. Follow the trail past Alam and you’ll eventually reach the eastern side of the beach and Ketut’s warung.
