Suluban or also known as the Blue Point Beach, is a beautiful beach in Southern part of Bali! The place is easy to reach, and not too crowded, many high cliffs that surround the beach. That’s could be the one of the reasons why this beach so special.
The location of the beach is not far from the temple of Uluwatu, and the wave make this beach is always crowded with surfers. I think the wave is the one which attract many surfers visiting Suluban Beach. Even though In the area of Uluwatu, there are many beaches that we can visit. Such as: Balangan, Tegal Wangi, Dreamland, Padang Padang, and Blue Point.
Stone wall that almost form a cave can be a convenient place to hide from the sun. *if you don’t want to get sunburn or tan*. Suluban supposedly derived from the word “mesulub” which had passed under the meaning of something. Because Suluban is surounded by many rocks, with a big rocks at the bottom. there is also some huge hollow rock like a tunnel that connects the real world to….. Haph!! Paradise!! To get to the beach we had to pass through tunder the hollow reef.
If you curious why it is namen as Blue point beach, here is the answer… The name of “Blue Point” more commonly known as there Villa / Resort named Blue Point in this area. That’s it… but it would be better if you just remember this place as Suluban Beach.
There’s no charge to enter this beach, only have to pay for parking if you carrying vehicle (around IDR 5000 for foreign tourist). Because the beach is located on the west side, making Suluban being the most perfect place to watch the sunset. We decide to visit Suluban Beach late in the afternoon, because if we came little late, it would be difficult for us to get an empty seat at the Blue Point Cafe. Yes! The cafe itself is the most suitable place to spend time before sunset and seing the beach. Trust me, it’s pretty awesome seen the beach from above!
I did mention that you’d better name this place as Suluban Beach. But, in fact the resort and cafe made this place more famous as Blue Point Beach. Yep! The cafe which is located above the cliffs that makes visitors can see the ocean and the sunset with perfect view! Of course the place is never empty, there always crowded with surfers and tourist who just simply want to have a drink and enjoy the fragrant sunset.
Well, it is hard to see local people here, doesn’t matter there is live music plus candles are lit when it is dark there. Anyway I promised to come back again to this place just for relaxing! :)
