Recently, Bali opened a new beach which is located in the village of Kutuh South Kuta Badung, Bali. Its name is Pandawa beach.
This beach was once called ‘Secret Beach’ because it was hidden behind the limestone hills. But since it was opened officially by local government at the end of December 2012 by holding of a Festival, Pandawa Beach is now crowded by tourists because of its natural and exotic scenery. Before it is widely known as a tourist destination, this beach was used only as a seaweed cultivation by surrounding communities.
Why this beach named as Pandawa Beach ?…
Since there is a statue of Panca Pandawa on the side of a sheer cliff on the road leading to the beach.
Besides having a view of the cliffs and beautiful limestone hills, Pandawa beach also has beautiful panorama, with clean white sand and bluish green sea water, typical of the beaches in the hill area.
Deserted beaches and tranquil atmosphere, this beach is perfect to bathe or swim because of the waves broke on the high seas.
Moreover, Pandawa beach is also a great place to see the sunrise because this beach is facing east.
