3 FOR THE KIDS
WHITE SAND BEACH White Sand Beach (also known as Virgin Beach or Pasir Putih) is one of Bali's iconic beaches. Despite its beauty, due to its relatively remote location, it's never crowded. The kids (and you!) will enjoy the adventure of arriving at the beach via a fishing boat (about 15 minutes from Candidasa), stopping along the way to snorkel if you prefer. Once at the beach there are traditional warungs (little restaurants) that serve the catch of the day and drinks (even cocktails!) at reasonable prices. The sea changes over the course of the day between being flat and having waves, and there are boogie boards for hire. There's even one or two little dress shops.
