Impossible Beach, as its perhaps confusing name suggests, is one of Bali's best-kept secrets. Its great beauty is not as easy to find as reading its name. Hidden behind the cliffs of Ungasan, this beach is a hidden gem on the island of Bali surrounded by Dreamland Beach and Padang-Padang Beach. The exoticism of this beach lies not only in the clear sea water and the stout rocks standing, but also in the difficulty of access which makes it an exclusive destination that needs to be explored with a true adventurous spirit.

However, this road does not lead directly to Impossible Beach. After turning right onto Jalan Bleach, signs to Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort guide you to the path that goes along with the access to the luxury hotel. Down a narrow alley, the journey continues until you reach a vehicle parking lot.

The parking lot is the starting point for your next adventure. After passing through the narrow walkway next to the hotel entrance, the journey continues by descending steep stairs. Indeed, extra energy is needed to reach the shores of Impossible Beach. However, all those difficulties pay off when the eyes are treated to spectacular views.

Impossible Beach has everything a natural beach lover dreams of. Its clear sea water, calm waves, and soft white sand are a combination of tropical paradise that captivates the soul. However, the uniqueness of this beach lies in towering coral cliffs and giant rocks that bear silent witness to the beauty of nature. This beach may not be as big as other beaches in Bali, but its charm exceeds its size.
