Blue Lagoon Beach In Bali – A Complete Guide

Blue Lagoon Beach Bali is a lesser known spot than some places in Bali, but great for snorkelling and relaxing. Here’s all the info for visiting.

How To Get To Blue Lagoon Beach

Located out East, the Blue Lagoon Beach in Bali is around 1 hour from Ubud, and 1 hour 30 minutes from Canggu.

Many people heading to East Bali choose to stay in the small beach town of Amed, which is around 30 minutes from Pura Lempuyang Temple.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. 

However be sure to read up on our renting a scooter in Bali guide beforehand! 

If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.

Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

If you love water activities, the East Bali: Snorkeling, Canyoning, and Waterfall Day Trip visits Blue Lagoon Beach.

Best Time To Visit Blue Lagoon Beach

The best time to visit Bali is between April and October, the island’s dry season.

The Blue Lagoon is still one of the lesser known spots on the island so is typically not too crowded with tourists. However, as with anywhere in Bali the best time to visit is always earlier in the morning!

If you’re a keen diver, then Blue Lagoon is a great spot for you! We’d certainly recommend exploring the waters here as this is known to be one of the best areas for marine life in Bali!

What To Expect At Blue Lagoon Beach In Bali

Just around the corner from the Padangbai, where ferries by the dozen charter tourists over to the Gili Islands, lies this secluded corner of paradise.

The Blue Lagoon Beach is known for being an underwater paradise for snorkelling and diving. Plus it’s rarely crowded day to day!

There are just a few steps down from the car park and local Warungs, at the tip of the cliff. This makes for an ideal day out for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet.

With the edge of the beach lined with palm trees there is plenty of shade if you prefer to be out of the sun.

A few metres out from shore there are beautiful coral reefs and plenty of tropical fish, including angel fish cuttle fish, cow fish and many more. The beautiful clear water makes it easy to pick out the marine life and is perfect for taking underwater photos.

So, if you’re heading out looking for the best things to do in East Bali, definitely pack a snorkel and try Blue Lagoon Beach.

If you haven’t got any diving gear and want to give it a try, all the equipment is available to rent from the locals by the beach.

We had a bit of a nightmare as we visited in March, so it was stormy when we arrived. The best time to visit is between April – October after the rainy season in Bali.

Overall though, we could see the potential of this beautiful place. So, if you’re looking for an easy ride and a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle, then Blue Lagoon Beach is the perfect spot.

Hey guys, I'm not sure there are lockers? However we left our stuff under the seat of our scooter and it was fine. The car park is safe for scooters.
