Idbackpacker.com (Indonesia Backpacker) – At the end of The Extreme Journey competition, I had a day spare time. Rather than spending the time gegoleran in The Pirate Bay Bali, do nothing (red : gegoleran mean doing nothing, just lying around). So I prefer to contact my old friends who are still many of them staying in Bali. In short, this time I need help from them to not getting bored. Because I’ve been in Bali but doing nothing is just not my style.
My friend agreed to pick me up, after I sent a short message to one of them in Bali. Actually a few days earlier I also had contacted them. However, because there is no certainty of my spare time or even I am not arriving in Bali in time. I asking them for help to plan any plan right before the competition properly finished. Eventually one of my friends was picked me up but I still do not know the destination yet.
In the end, there is one hidden beach in Bali which i had not visit before. Actually almost every beach in Bali already cannot be called again as hidden beach. Moreover, after I wrote it in both of my book. Well, after all it seems indeed Bali could not be spent in a day, a month, or even a year though. The proof there is still the only new things like the beach that I had never visit at all. Even In fact I have already several times passing through port of Padang Bai.
The distance of Kuta – Padang Bai itself only takes approximately 1.5 – 2 hour commute if the traffic run smoothly. As for going to Bias Tunggal beach, the exact clue does not exist, no one knows for sure the location of the beach.
When arrived at Padang Bai, It turns out looking for hidden beach is not too difficult. The easiest instructions to get to the beach are the port of Padang Bai itself.
That is, the first t-junction after seeing the port. After that, take to the right direction. Well, then there are two options for heading to the beach, the first by a Gulf located near the Harbor, and then continue with little trekking. While the second is to bring the bike up to the top before it went down to the beach, via a path that already exists.
The two lines actually going to meet at one point. From there, blue horizon line could look elongated which is the limit where sea and sky unite. Looking down the coconut tree looks to become one of the hallmarks of beach sand, though yet to be seen. Faint sound waves to convince us that the Bias Tunggalbeach was near.
In fact the coast of Bias Tunggal located several steps down the cliff that is not too high. I don’t know why the coastline is still got a nickname as one of hidden beach in Bali. The reality is that many person who enjoys afternoon on the beach. Most of them are men, local and strangers, including me. There were also here there was a conversation with Bali accent and I also seen a few foreigner who are being sunbathing
Bias Tunggal beach actually is similar to beach Virgin Beach that exists in Karangasem. The different between the beaches, there is a natural pool whose size is large enough. This seems to be popular because I seen some of young peoples who spent the afternoon with their friends there. Then, there is also a mini water blow, similar as in Nusa Dua. A torrent of water is rarely seen, only the voice just sounds so creepy.
Overall, which made me interested was sitting, relaxing while enjoying a ship that passing through just not far from the beach. They are actualy saling from Lombok to Bali or vice versa. In my opinion this is most interesting indeed.
I was able to relax while enjoying the ships passing the sea, while some of my friends playing with cool sea water. This one isunexpectedly nice travel experience. Now, I am convinced that someday will surely visit the Bias Tunggal beach again with my dear ones :)
