Pasir Putih Beach in Karangasem, east Bali, is one of the island's far-flung and ‘hidden’ beaches. Despite its remote location, the beach gained popularity and has been referred to by various nicknames, such as Perasi Beach (referring to the name of the village), White Sand Beach, Virgin Beach and simply, Hidden Beach.The exotic and secluded Pasir Putih coast offers tranquil yet rugged scenery, stretching between the 2 hills of the villages Bugbug and Perasi. You can reach the seaside by car or motorbike about 4.5 km east from the main hub of the popular beach resort of Candidasa.

This remote beach sometimes gets called Virgin Beach, which may be a result of its remoteness on the east coast. It’s worth the effort to get there precisely because it’s off the beaten track. Some beaches on Bali have volcanic black sand but not Pasir Putih, as its English name suggests. It’s a great place for swimming, with calm and clear blue waters.

Local seafood and a range of other food is available at the beachfront restaurants, along with ice cold beer, so lunch is certainly not a problem. You can hire a sun lounger for the day and even enjoy a massage right there on the sand.

There is a car park so you can drive to the beach from wherever you are staying. This secret spot has minimal tourists, making it a nice respite from the packed beaches of southern Bali.
