Bias Tugel is a beach located just next to Padang Bai port where people catch the boats and ships to the Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air in Lombok. Also, people take the ship from here to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida.
As usual, I read about the beach from my Bali bible, Trip Canvas. I was excited as I never heard about this beach before. All I knew about Padang Bai was a gateway to Lombok and the 3 Gilis. So yeah, the excitement was overloaded.
Together with my friend Catur, we left Denpasar early that day. Our destinations were to Bukit Belong and Tukad Unda in Klungkung and Bias Tugel Beach in Karang Asem. I was really curious as I never knew that Padang Bai has such beautiful beach. Look what I have missed!We got to Padang Bai right on mid day when the sun was at its most performance. Freaking hot! But who cares, I needed to do what I wanted to do hahaha. Actually, we were so lucky that the weather was really nice that day after the whole week had been all rainy days. Why would I not want the sun shine, eh? 😉
To find the beach was easy. Before the gate to the port area, there’s an intersection and we took the right turn. We kept going around 1 km and there was a sign of Bias Tugel Beach. The road access was already good even it was up and down the hill. The entrance fee was IDR 2.000 each. Going down the staircases, I could see the ocean and I was stunned already.
At the end of the stair, we turned left following the direction. and in a second, we were surrounded by the trees. Wowww…it was beautiful. We followed the path around 100 m and finally we reached the beach. Yayyy!!! *_*There were some people in the beach and I just couldn’t wait to jump into the water. I picked a spot under a tree’s shade and it was perfect. It was the right corner to take some pictures without having to move my ass out of the beach sarong 😀After resting a little while, I decided to test the water. OMG it was so perfectly warm and soothing at the same time. The water was crystal clear and turquoise that I couldn’t resist. The ships and boat from and to Padang Bai Port just didn’t give AF as they continued to pass by hahaha.
