Pantai Tangtu - Muara Beach Bali

Pantai Tangtu, Muara Beach Bali

Muara Beach or Pantai Tangtu is a beautiful black sand beach with astounding seascape, tucked away between Padang Galak Beach (on south-west) and Biaung Beach (on east). The Jeh Ayung River boils down here and right across the river is a sacred temple with beautiful architecture, the Pura Campuhan Windhu Segara and the Pura Dalem Segara Taman Ayung.

The beach is located in Kesiman Kertalangu, East Denpasar district, Denpasar City, Bali. This beach is easily accessible by car, about 45 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport (22 kilometers). Drive east via the Bali Mandara Toll Road until you hit the Jl. Prof. Dr. Ida Bagus Mantra and then take Jl. Gumitir up to Biaung Beach.

The Muara Beach Tangtu is situated on the western tip of Biaung Beach. The parking is directly on the beach, and there are also some food stalls (warung). Balinese usually held the Melasti Ceremony here.

This beach needs a little care, there is wood waste, foliage, and plastic. This place is transformed into an attractive recreation spot. In addition to trash issues, the beach is also suffering from severe abrasion. The government has done the installation of revetment and also the arrangement of the pedestrian path along the coast.

This is an interesting place to enjoy a morning walk or bike ride, down the pedestrian path while enjoying the sunrise, Bali Blue Mountains, crashing waves and sea water, paddy fields, riverside, and cool sea-breeze. The waves here are big and strong, visitors are not advised to soaking and swimming.

There is a few park bench, small gazebo, and also sand swing that you can try while enjoying the sea view and holy temple. Here is also held the Muara Beach Festival (MBF), with the aim to introduce tourism potential in the Kertalangu Village.

Several surf anglers are seen on the beach, waiting enthusiastically. This is an estuary area with waves and strong winds. The river stream brings nutrients and materials thereby reducing the intensity of light and more cover for fish. Fish will be interested in eating plankton and also provoke the presence of predatory fish. This is a surf fishing spot worth a try.
