Melasti Beach

Melasti Beach, or Pantai Melasti as the locals know it, is a white sand beach in Ungasan, Bali, near Uluwatu.
For a long time, the road out to Melasti Beach was terrible, but a local construction project has remedied that, and it’s now home to several beach resorts. And Melasti Beach is pretty easy to get to from anywhere in Bali.

Where Is Melasti Beach?
Melasti Beach is in Ungasan Bali, which is in South Bali. In fact, Melasti Beach is the southernmost point of the whole island of Bali, which is something of a selling point to tourists looking to have some bragging rights when they get home.
The exact Melasti Beach location/address is Jl. Melasti Ungasan, Ungasan, Kec. Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia
The Pantai Melasti Beach should never be confused with Melasti on the other side of the island at Tanah Lot Temple.

How Do You Get To Melasti Beach?
If you’re in Uluwatu, then we’d say you can either get a Grab or Gojek or, perhaps, if you’re feeling brave, rent a scooter to make the drive.
However, we would note (as always) that we just don’t recommend driving a scooter in Bali unless you are an experienced driver and fully road legal (that means a current International Driver’s Permit and a license with a motorcycle endorsement) with insurance.
There are far too many accidents on scooters in Bali to take chances with this.
If you’re coming in from Kuta, Canggu, or Seminyak, then Melasti Beach is quite far away, and you’re going to want to hire a private car and driver (you can see the FAQ section below for how to do this).

When Is Melasti Beach Open?
It’s a beach, so technically, it’s open 24/7 and 365 days a year, but you’re probably not going to hit the beach at 3 a.m.
There is a ticketing booth, and it’s open during daylight hours.

What Is The Melasti Beach Entrance Fee?
The official entrance fee is 10,000 IDR for this beach (that’s less than $1 USD), and you must pay it at the ticketing booth before you park your vehicle.
It’s worth noting that this is a very popular place for people to do wedding photoshoots and to hold special events.
If you want to do this, you will be required to pay additional fees, which are negotiable (to some extent). You probably want to arrange any special terms before your visit.

When Is The Best Time To Visit Melasti Beach?
There is no bad time of year to visit Melasti Beach, and while, of course, the dry season is the most popular time of year to see Melasti Beach, you’ll have a nice time in the wet season, too.
On average, during the wet season, Bali sees 9 hours of sunshine a day! It rains for a few hours at the most.
Just check out the weather forecast before you set off for Melasti Beach if you’re coming from the other side of Bali Island.
There is also no perfect time of day for a visit. We love to stroll along Melasti Beach in the early morning when there’s nobody else about it and just enjoy the feel of sand beneath our feet.
However, swimming and sunbathing can be done all day long, and it’s warm and pleasant for the majority of almost every day on Melasti Beach.
The sunsets are also pretty dramatic and spectacular here, so turning up in the early evening to have a drink is just fine, too.
We would note that it’s at its busiest on weekends and at its quietest in the early morning.
