Crystal Bay Beach
South of Toyapakeh, a paved 10km road through the village of Sakti leads to idyllic Crystal Bay Beach, which fronts the popular dive spot. The sand here is very white; palm trees add a South Pacific motif. The beach is popular with Bali day-trippers who arrive in boats (one operator is Bali Hai Cruises; www.balihaicruises.com). But mostly the beach remains blessedly rural.
