I hear that the beach in Selong Belanak is white-sand beautiful but is it appropriate for swimming? I read about surfing so I assume strong waves and wind. The place I am contemplating does not have a pool so that's a significant factor for us. Should I consider Kuta instead? I am not sure if the beach is as nice.
Also, any decent restaurants around? I read that Kuta is a bumpy long ride away?
Also: any accommodation recommendation welcome in (or arround) Selong Belanak of a decent calibre. one of the TA members recommended a great place but it's booked.
