Why Nyang Nyang Beach is special ?
Oten 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 you can have your own bit of paradise all to yourself. And by deserted, this really is deserted, i.e. no drinks stall, umbrellas or food so bring your own supplies and shade if needed. Good luck on your mission!
What to explore at Nyang Nyang Beach?
You'll see a small shack of a shop and a house and from there it's a 15-minute walk down the 500+ steps that climb the Nyang Nyamg escarpment.
Once at the base you'll see more cows than people and you can set up camp wherever you want. Note you will need to bring your own food and water as there is nowhere to buy anything at beach level -- a rarity in Bali, believe us.
It's a coarse sand, and as a surf beach Nyang Nyang is popular, but this most certainly isn't a novice wave. Uncrowded rides of up to 150m can be had when conditions are good.
This is an ideal spot for a Robinson Crusoe day out, when you really just want to have a lot of time to yourself. Plenty of secluded spots are hidden amid the scrub and shade can be had up on the grassy plateau (which you'll share with the cows). Bring lots of water and food, or be prepared to buy from the old crones at the top.
A word these vendors: if you say you'll buy one of their crummy bracelets on the way back, they'll remember you return — and you will honour your words.
How to get to Nyang Nyang Beach?
Best done on a bike. Drive south towards Uluwatu temple, you can go right towards the temple, or left …go LEFT, past Ulu Cafe. Carry on another 100m or so until your see 2 white pillars just before some warungs and a laundrette. Turn right down the thin pavement until the road ends. You should see a small wooden sign saying ‘Nyang Nyang surf beach’. Follow the dirt track until in becomes a field with a few ruins. Walk to the end of the cliff where you will find a small drinks stall (STOCK UP!). You will then start your journey down the 500 steps to the beach. Enjoy!

Just visit the beach from last week vacation with my hubby. It was a really peaceful and beautiful beach. When we are there, there only one or two person on the beach so we really enjoy our time together accompanied by clean white sand and nice wave. It was not easy to reach the beach. First, the map on the Waze and Google Map both direct us to wrong location so the best way is just to ask to the local people once you arrive at Uluwatu area. The second was you have to go down (and up for return) for several hundreds of stair up to 45 degree slope. The best way to go there is by motorcycle, since the car wont be able to take you as near as possible to the stair way down to the beach, and believe me that you will need your vehicle as close as possible when you upcoming from the beach. It seems that there were several entry point to go to this beach, just ask which one you interested in especially if you want to visit the shipwreck. I agree with some comments recommended you to bring your own food because there was no seller on the beach. We only found one small stall selling cold water on the gate of stairway. Just remember to bring back your trash uphill so it don't waste the beach. We already found some leftover trash mainly under the pandan trees spread along the beach.
