If you’re looking for the clearest waters and the best beach on the island, then Melasti Beach Bali is your spot. Here’s all the info for visiting.
Located at the most southern point of Bali, Melasti Beach is around an hour from Canggu but relatively easy to get to.
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.
Entrance – entry to Melasti beach was free when we visited but believe you now pay an entrance fee of 10,000 Rupiah per adult.
(This charge, we think, is due to new, tourist friendly, amenities being added at the beach since our visits. These include toilets, showers, changing rooms, a shop and a large car park.)
Beach Loungers – 100,000 Rupiah
Mie Goreng – 15,000 Rupiah
Melasti Beach Bali Opening Times
This beach is open all day, every day.
Best Time To Visit Melasti Beach Bali + Tips
The best time to visit Bali and enjoy the beaches is during the island’s dry season, which is between April and October.
This time of year guarantees ideal weather for beach days. With days full of sunshine and temperatures averaging 30°C.
While still warm and sunny, during the wet season you will get frequent and sudden heavy downpours.
As with any of the beautiful Bali beaches, getting to Melasti beach early will help you avoid the crowds.
Also, this is another stunning sunset spot and great for photos.

What To Pack
We headed down to Melasti Beach many times during our Bali stint and it still remains one of our favourite Uluwatu beaches.
Apart from the untouched beaches of Nusa Penida, Melasti Beach was the cleanest we found.
As you head down to Meslati Beach the drive is incredible. The twists and turns through windy roads and the limestone cliffs are something we’ll always remember from our days-out down south.
This beautiful white sand beach is hidden away by a large limestone cliff and actually used to be pretty difficult to reach, until the recent development of a road.
It is now easy to access this stunning beach and it is quickly becoming more popular with tourists.
Before you head down to the beach itself, make sure to pull over at one of the view points to capture a shot from above of the beautiful turquoise waters.
There are a handful of local warungs set up on the beach that are still charging surprisingly cheap prices for some tasty local food.
So, don’t worry about what to eat during your visit as there are plenty of noodles and burgers available for everybody.
We would go on to talk about how beautiful the sand is and how crystal clear the waters are but we’ll let the photos do the talking.
If you’re looking for a really relaxed and chilled day with family or friends, then a visit to Melasti Beach Bali is the killer spot.
