During our 10 days in Bali, we spent a couple of days down south in popular Jimbaran. Known for gorgeous coastlines, beaches, and seafood dinners, Jimbaran is also home to the famous Ayana Resort.
One of the main spots we wanted to visit in Jimbaran was Pantai Tegal Wangi, also known as Tegal Wangi beach. Tegal Wangi beach has a gorgeous view of the coastline from above, and an epic spot for Bali sunsets!

Where To Stay In Jimbaran
There are a lot of places to stay in Jimbaran that fit any budget. Of course many like to splurge and stay at The Ayana, and while we didn’t indulge in that luxurious spot this time around, we did stay at a guesthouse that fit our needs perfectly.
Clover Bali House was a little over $20 usd a night for a private room with a/c. With free breakfast, comfy beds, a hot shower, fast wifi and a rooftop pool, it’s a great value and perfect for budget travelers.
The owners were very kind, they offered scooters for rent, and there was a warung on property. Clover Bali House is also in a great location for many beaches and famous spots. We couldn’t recommend it enough!
How To Get To Pantai Tegal Wangi (Tegal Wangi Beach)
Tegal Wangi Beach was about a 20 minute ride on scooter from our guesthouse. Mapping ‘Pantai Tegal Wangi’, it wasn’t that hard to find with gps, although closer to the beach we did lose some signal.
The route was a lot of backroads and somewhat bumpy, but you’ll eventually end up at a parking lot for the beach. We didn’t see a sign, but there is a clear pathway to the left that leads to the cliffs.
You’ll see the coastline once you clear the trees and bushes. It’s a terrific view, and a lot of locals sit on the clifftops for sunset! To continue down to the beach, it’s just a few steps down through the rocks.
The beach is not recommended for swimming as it’s rough with lots of rocks and reef. The beach is very nice to walk along though! The beach also has little tide pools that you can sit in during low tide.
At the very end of the beach you will find the famous sunset cave. I was shocked at how small it was, as it looks really big in photos. We spent 1.5 hours there enjoying the gorgeous sunset – so lovely! There were also quite a few groups of people around, so we waited until the majority left to get this empty background.
As you exit, the parking lot often has a man selling corn which looked yummy! Also we didn’t have to pay for parking, but you should have some cash on you just in case. We loved Pantai Tegal Wangi – it was a beautiful sunset spot and we highly recommend it if you’re in Jimbaran!
