Suluban Beach In Bali – A Complete Guide

Suluban Beach Bali is a real gem in the south. With coves and caves, it attracts skilled surfers and all kinds of beach lovers. Here’s all you need to know.

How To Get To Suluban Beach

Located on the South West Coast of Bali, Suluban Beach Bali is around 1 hour and 30 minutes from Canggu but relatively easy to get to.

For those staying in Uluwatu, it’s just a short drive from Tegal Wangi Beach and the Abandoned Plane.

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.

A popular tour that visits Suluban Beach is the South Coast Uluwatu, Tanah Lot, and Jimbaran Day Trip.

 

Suluban Beach Entrance Fee

There are two entrances to Suluban Beach. 

They are both free to enter, but you must pay for parking.

Beach Entrance: 3,000 IDR per scooter.

Single Fin Entrance: 5,000 IDR per scooter / 15,000 IDR per car.

Suluban Beach Opening Times

Suluban Beach is open all day, every day.

Best Time To Visit Suluban Beach

The best beach weather in Bali is during the dry season which runs from April to October.

Sultan Beach is a great place to visit at any time of the day, although it does get quite busy with surfers so if you’re looking for a quiet time then early in the day is probably best.

Don’t forget to check the tides before you visit.

There is plenty of shade at this beach if you don’t like it too hot.

What To Expect At Suluban Beach

The first thing you should know before you venture your way to Suluban Beach Bali, is that you should check the tide times, if you’re going there to relax.

However, if you’re heading there to surf, you can visit at any time. You can check what time the tide is out via the Surf Forecast website.

The second thing you need to know is that there are two entrances to Suluban beach.

One entrance is through the bar ‘Single Fin’, and the other entrance is where google maps should take you. They are both around the same distance walk to the beach, and they both have concrete stairs all the way down.

The beach itself is completely different to all the other Bali beaches. This one is a real adventure, climbing down the windy stairs and exploring beneath the limestones cliffs.

Half of the beach is shaded by the caved cliff and the other half catches the sun throughout the day. This little gem was definitely one of our favourite beaches on the island.

Surfing At Suluban Beach

Suluban Beach Bali is a popular surf break due to it’s cove like shape.

It is home to many international surf events throughout the year, therefore attracts professional surfers from all around the world. 

Suluban Beach Bali can be surfed on all tides, but it typically breaks better on a mid to low tide.

The best months to surf at Suluban Beach are in dry season, from May to October.

Also, if you are hanging around Suluban Beach at sunset, it’s definitely worth stopping in Single Fin for a beer, or two!
