My wife, our friend and myself visited this beach on a trip from Ubud, and were only able to stay for three hours. If you weren't aware of it's location you would most likely never find it. The last 300 metres of road to the beach are a real goat track. The beach itself is nice white sand with some volcanic black sand mixed in, It's less than a kilometre in length, with about 7 - 10 warungs and souvenir stalls immediately opposite the road (track). There are the usual vendors patrolling the beach, nowhere near as pushy as the Kuta vendors. We had a delightful seafood meal and plenty of cold drinks as we rested on the daybeds and watched the waves roll onto the beach. The vendors don't go to the far end of the beach where the fishing boats are, so if they bother you too much, you have the option of moving a hundred metres or so and relaxing on the sand near the boats. If we had been aware of this lovely spot we would have arranged to spend the whole day there, but we certainly enjoyed our time there, and would go again on a future trip to Bali.

Great place. Chill out and relax. Beach is like a small lagoon style not busy like kit. Surf small. Swimming good an safe boats at end of beach or snorkel or is fishing with coral nearby
Try Budi ayu warung cafe for friendly service drinks meals and lounges on beach position in Sun or shade for you. A little hard to find without diver first time. But a must if around candidasa area where beach is mainly rocky.

the access is a bit difficult due to bad road. But at the beach you can relax with often high waves. You can relax there the entire day. Often you can get sun lounger and umbrella for free when you eat at the restaurant. There is apparently little difference in the quality of food between the restaurants but in the appearance and prices. You can go on a snorkeling trip by boat for up to 2 hours. But you need to negotiate!
