*) There is no direct public transport to get there. If you use public transport, you will waste your time because the feeder bus not really sure when it will arrive.

**) It’s really not efficient trip using public transport in Bali. Waste your time, energy and money. There is no fixed price in Bali transportation system, except Trans Sarbagita. If the passenger full loaded you will get the price above, but if quiet (little) passenger you will pay more expensive. Seems they applied operational cost basis since the public transport not so popular today (quiet).

***) For backpacker i recommend you to rent a scooter to reach this beach and use google map as your navigator.

****) I advice you to access via Pecatu Indah Resort because the road very good, wide and quiet. But, if you access via village road, the road so small, broken in some spot and the local people drive so fast for sometime.
