Welcome to Crystal Bay Beach
This idyllic beach fronts the popular dive spot Crystal Bay. The sand here is light; 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. At busy times, however, up to 60 boats might arrive at once, so conditions can get very crowded. Come after 3pm to avoid the crowds. A couple of warungs (food stalls) and beach cafes rent snorkelling gear. The temple, Segara Sakti, adds the perfect touch.
