Secret beaches in Bali? — Padawa beach and Green Balls beach
Pandawa Beach is a secret beach in Bali since this is cited behind the rocky hills to the south of Bali. This pristine beach is located in Kutuh Village, Kuta Selatan Subdistrict, Badung Regency, Bali Province. It is around 15 km from the International Airport of Ngurah Rai Bali.
Starts from the International Airport of Ngurah Rai Bali, go up straight to the south via Jalan Uluwatu, then pass the Jimbaran beach (right side), GWK (left side) and Dreamland Beach gate (right side), after that you will meet the interchange of Ungasan, turn left and go straight along the Jalan Dharmawangsa around 10 minutes. Check out and follow the board and direction arrow like these!
A Stairway to the Heaven
The road to the beach is surrounded by hill and cliff of limestone rock and chalk - a sedimentary rock composed primarily of coccolith fossils. The access to the beach is easily reached and you can enjoy the primeval hills and rocks then your eyes directly to the long stretch of white sand is flanked by rocky cliffs.
Statues of Pandawa
While going downhill to the beach area, to the left side, on the cliff, the statues of Pandawa (protagonist heroes in Ramayana Epic) donated by some Indonesian businessmen. Pandawa is derived from Sanskrit language 'Pandu', literally means 'sons' (of the king) in 'Mahabarata Epic'. They are: Yudhistira, Bima, Arujuna Nakula and Sadewa
The Heaven on the Earth
The agenda at Pandawa is simple: surf (if you can), go swimming when it is high/low tide, canoeing, build intricate sandcastles — the sand here is exceptional for doing so — and laze about in some umbrellas watching the surfers, young and old, catch the waves or relax at an assortment of warungs (local cafe) serving plates of indo mee and ice-cold Bintangs and cheap non-air conditioned huts.The sand is thick and soft, packed hard so you can play a game of volleyball or go for a leisurely beach run.
Tucked away after GWK and Dreamland beach, the beauty of this beach is that it is hidden, accessible only after a 700-meter trek down a rocky road.
What greets you at the end of your mini-hike is a glorious body of water in varying shades of blue and turquoise fringed by a strip of fine white sand and swaying trees.
Enjoy the Journey to Pandawa!!!
