Geger Beach: A Hidden Paradise in Bali, Indonesia
When In Manila and summer season is at its peak, people flock to where else but the beach! Thousands of surfers, honeymooners, families or backpackers on a hunt for the best sunrise/sunset resort to Bali paradise. When you think of Bali, think of the the 3 S’s. Sun, sea, sand. Thanks to its great waters, Bali is brimming with spectacular beaches and numerous stunning sunrise/sunset spots, no doubt about that! Kuta, Indonesia is just a quick ride from the airport and is known to be the most popular (and commercialized) beach wherein it’s swarmed with all kinds of tourists and such. Bikini babes, night clubs that rock the house till dawn, you’ll find it in Kuta. Now if ever you find Kuta overcrowded (which it really is), you might want to check out the beautiful GEGER Beach. It’s located 5 minutes away from Nusa Dua Golf Course and is next to Nikko Bali Resort.
Geger is simply gorgeous. It’s an extension of the Nusa Dua Southern Beach and is listed (along with Nikko Bali Resort) as one of Bali’s best hidden and unforgettable beaches. The remoteness of Geger beach is beyond words. It’s a vast and wide sandy beach! We reached the place after surviving the Bali uncooperative and sharp main roads only to be welcomed by its sophisticated yet island-y feel. One step and you’d picture yourself tanning by the sea, margarita in hand…yes just like a white beach postcard that came to life. Best time to go here? Early mornings!
If you find that the other beaches of Bali are merely jolting waters, Geger is more appropriate to swim in. At Geger Beach, you can also see beautiful fishes swimming freely between the coral reef and the seaweed fishermen around the area. Yes, the sea is that calm ; apt for seaweed farming! Geger has this effervescent blue green water ; relatively calm and with manageable rolling waves. The constant cooling sea breeze is what I’ve loved about it plus it’s extremely peaceful. There are barely any trash that you can see around Geger Beach, impressive eh?
