Hidden away from the crowds of Kuta is one of the gems of Indonesia in Nyang Nyang Beach, which is a shell collector’s dream and has two shipwrecks on the shore. Often people talk about ‘secret beaches’, which actually aren’t that secret anymore. Nyang Nyang beach on the other hand has managed to keep it’s location and identity on the down low. The reason for this being that it is pretty hard to get to (read dirt track, fields and 500 cliffside steps). Once you get here it is utterly magnificent. No one else is here, bar maybe a few local children spearfishing. The untouched white sand carries on into the horizon. And by deserted, this really is deserted, no drinks stall, umbrellas or food so bring your own supplies and shade if needed.
