Seseh Beach

Our first morning in Bali, we walked the few hundred metres from our villa to Seseh Beach.

to the lure of the ocean ahead.

we were surprised and somewhat disappointed to find, not the expanse of untouched golden sand one might imagine, but a beach of black sand.

This western coastline is among Bali’s favourite surf spots, though not conducive to relaxing on the beach. The volcanic rock formations were fascinating

The fishing boats of Seseh village were patiently awaiting their next adventure.

We strolled back, past curious doorways

Returning to the villa, we were welcomed by the familiar shrines at the entrance.

  1. I always find the volcanic black sand of Bali a real novelty and it doesn’t stick to you like regular sand!! There’s still lots of golden sand in Bali, just not along that quieter stretch of coastline.
