Pantai Mengiat or Mengiat Beach is located in Nusa Dua. Hotels in Nusa Dua that do not have private beach usually provide shuttle bus / car to Mengiat Beach and run private cafe and beach facilities for their guests.
The beach can be accessed easily. The parking lot charges a small fee. There is also a free parking lot for the cafe there run by the local village. The cafe rents beach chairs, has showers, restrooms, and has a pretty good F&B menu.
The beach is protected by an offshore reef, which prevents waves from breaking on the beach, thus keep the water calm and easily swimmable. Surfers ride boats out to the reef to surf.
This was the end of my December trip to Bali. Bali, I’ll be back !
