Lepang Beach has suffered severe abrasion in recent years. Many residents lost their land along the coastline. The government along with other stakeholders has handled this issue by installing grout mattress to withstand abrasion.

As with the beach of Tegal Besar, this black sand beach is also a place of sea turtles to lay their eggs. During the nesting season, Olive Ridley turtles (Penyu Lekang/Lepidochelys olivacea) will emerge from the sea water into the sand and lay the eggs. Therefore, this beach is known as one of the sea turtle sanctuaries in Bali.

The beach is suitable for jogging in the morning or a fun picnic weekend. Visitors can walk along the sandy path, enjoy a quiet atmosphere with natural scenery or just sit back and hearing to the crashing waves.

You are not recommended for soaking and swimming, due to the big and strong waves. This beach has less shade and really hot during the day. Visitors usually come in the morning or afternoon. The sunset here is really amazing. Many surf angler line up on the beach with their spinning rod, signifying this place as one of the surf fishing spots.
