Bali Island

Limestone Cliffs of Melasti Beach – Melasti Beach. This time we are still discussing the beauty of southern Bali. The beauty of the beach on the Island of the Gods is endless. Located not far from Pandawa Beach, this beach is relatively quiet so its naturalness is really still awake.

Access to the beach has also been supported, plus the contours of the road with cliffs surrounding it, make your trip feel more enjoyable. Although many consider it similar to Pandawa Beach, Melasti Beach actually has its own uniqueness.

Melasti Beach

Melasti Beach Ungasan Bali

Melasti Beach is a beach located in the south of Bali Island, precisely in Ungasan Village, and adjacent to Bali Cliff Beach.

It is called Melasti Beach because this beach is often used for Melasti ceremonies by local residents on certain days, for example before “Nyepi”.

Currently access to this beach has been well laid out. This is proven by the existence of an asphalt road leading to the beach that crosses a high ravine which is often the background for the location of the photo shoot, the height can be 100–150 meters.

This beach will also be made a platform that juts into the middle of the sea. The goal is to make it easier for local people to perform religious rituals, for example when melasti will make it easier to “nganyud” to the middle of the sea. Because previously had to use a boat to do this “nganyud” activity.
