Bali - pantai pasir putih Perasi

If you are fed up with the crowded Kuta or Sanur beaches in southern Bali, Pantai Pasir Putih Perasi, the White Sandy Perasi Beach, up in Karangasem regency in East Bali offers untouched pristine beauty.

No hotels, villas or any other tourist accommodations are visible from the quiet beach in the village of Perasi. Only a very few local and foreign visitors are usually seen strolling along its white sandy beach. Perasi Beach or ‘virgin beach’ is still unknown to many people. The beach is quite isolated. There are only a couple of food stalls and shops opened in the beach area that offer local food, snacks and beverages for visitors. Some food stalls offer beach umbrellas for shade. A number of female masseurs were trying to persuade visitors to use their services. It takes one-and-a-half hours to drive from Denpasar to Perasi Beach. On the main road, linking Denpasar with Karangasem, there is a small sign almost invisible, which reads: “White Sand Beach”.

Despite there being only a narrow road heading to the beach, there is a spacious parking lot managed by Desa Adat traditional village community. The community charges Rp 5,000 for parking and Rp 3,000 for entrance.
