Pererenan Beach

4 1

It's very low-key on the run down from Raya Canggu — lots of luminescent green rice fields, and while there are a smattering of villas, it's not nearly as built up as further to the south.

That said, when you do reach the beach head, an amazingly corpulent private residence lies to the immediate west, but like the rest of the area, it's low key. To the east is the cheap Nyoman Homestay and a miniscule warung that can do simple snacks and iced drinks.

The beach out front here is a big rock shelf and doesn't look great (at all) for swimming, but if you climb over the rocks (easy to do) then quite a pretty little crescent of sand just after that is great for laying around, and, depending on how the sea is behaving, probably safe for a swim.

If you come here just to lay around rather than to surf, rest assured you'll have most of the place to yourself.
