Dream Land Beach
When your dream lays down on the beach
Dreamland Beach is one of Bali's "secret" beaches, with stretches of white sand sheltered by limestone cliffs that line the mountainous southern Bukit Peninsula coastline. With the development of the Pecatu Graha and Pecatu Indah Resort developments, which transformed 400 hectares of hilly land into 'New Kuta' with Klapa Beach Club, resorts, and the New Kuta Golf course at the turn of the millennium, the beach became highly accessible.
Dreamland Beach retains much of its raw attractiveness on the sand, particularly for beachgoers, day-trippers, and surfers, despite rampant construction over its limestone environment. Near the coast, you can find some of Bali's best reef breakers as well as close paddle outs to other world-class reef breaks, like as Balangan in the north and Impossibles in the south (both for advanced riders). You can rent deck chairs and parasols on the sand and have an inexpensive massage for Rp 50,000 to Rp 100,000. It's a good idea to haggle hard.
Much of the local warung food stall scene has vanished, although there are still a few small businesses and beach peddlers selling cold soft drinks and Bintangs. Expect some flotsam and jetsam to be brought in by the westerly winds during the wet season (typically between October and April), as well as the regular throngs during local vacations and mid-year school breaks. Swimming is possible in some areas of the beach, but the currents are strong further out. Stay till the end of the day for spectacular sunsets.
