Nyang Nyang Beach Shipwreck In Uluwatu, South Bali
Pantai Nyang Nyang Beach is one of the bigger white sand beaches in south Bali, with clean blue water and lots of wide open space.
The walk down and back up is a killer, but it’s worth it if you’re looking for a nice quiet beach without the crowds!This guide will explain how you can get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
Where To Stay
Pantai Nyang Nyang Beach
Nyang Nyang beach sits at the bottom of a big cliff, and to reach it you’ll have to hike down from the parking area above.
That sounds scary, but it’s not at all. The hike actually takes only about 20 minutes on the way down and 30 minutes going back up.
There are a few sections with loose rocks you could slip on, but it’s never anything dangerous at all. We wore sandals and that was fine all the way.
Climbing back up is pretty exhausting and there are no drinks for sale down there, so I’d recommend bringing some water!
Nyang Nyang Beach Shipwreck
This beach is famous for the shipwreck in the sand, but that’s actually located at Nunggalan Beach, which is a bit further.
You can still reach the shipwreck from Nyang Nyang since both beaches are connected, but it’s a long walk in the sand to get there — more than 1 mile (2 km).
If you’re mainly wanting to see the shipwreck, then go to Nunggalan Beach instead. It’s much easier to reach from there.
Either way, the shipwreck is a very cool spot to sit and take pictures for your Instagram. The views in the background are amazing too.
There used to be two wrecks here, but sadly one of the boats seems to have washed away.
FREE as of 2020.
There’s no parking fee or entry fee here.
How To Get To Nyang Nyang Beach
Nyang Nyang Beach is located in the Uluwatu area of south Bali.
It’s 30-45 minute drive from the Kuta area, depending on traffic.
There’s a small parking lot with some food shacks and paragliding shops, and the hike starts from here.
Just follow the narrow path down the road until you reach the beach!
(Side note: if you’re mainly wanting to see the shipwreck, then go to Nunggalan Beach instead. It’s much easier to reach from there.)
Bali Private Driver & Motorbike Rental
If you want to explore Bali in the comfort and safety of a private car with a driver, my top recommendation would be Klook.
Their price is 450k IDR ($30 USD) for a full day of driving and sightseeing in Bali (up to 10 hours) for 1-5 passengers. That's the total price for the whole car + driver + petrol! It's a steal.
If you'd rather travel by motorbike, they have that too. Their scooter rentals start at 85k IDR (~$6) and include a helmet, rain coat, and pickup in the south Bali area.
We've used Klook for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.
Nyang Nyang Beach Camping – Bubble Hotel
If you want more adventure, there are bubble hotels at Nyang Nyang Beach where you can stay the night!
We haven’t tried this, but it looks fun. Just don’t go expecting a luxury experience, but I still think it would be fun to try for at least one night.
The beach itself is amazing, so it would be a great place to wake up in the morning.
