Kutikan Beach, Hidden Exoticism Behind the Cliffs

This beach is a hidden gem that offers truly breathtaking views that can easily compete with other beaches in Bali.

This relatively unknown beach is not less beautiful than other beaches. Kutikan Beach has its own uniqueness and exoticism that can be enjoyed from every angle. Its location behind the rocky cliffs makes it hidden, and not many people venture to explore it.
Unlike other beaches typically located along the roadside, reaching Kutikan Beach offers two routes. First, from the west of Pura Batu Bolong in the Tanah Lot tourist area.

The second route is through the southwest of the main Tanah Lot parking area, passing through a field and descending along a footpath. You'll cross a small river before arriving at Kutikan Beach.
