Munggu Beach is a long arch of black sand beach with wonderful environments. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, Seseh Beach, Pererenan Beach & Statue (Gajah Mina) and Echo Beach in the distance. The beach is surrounded by rice field and Balinese traditional village. The atmosphere here is calm and quiet, with a slow rhythm of life. This is a hidden gem with its low-laying black sand and nice seascape. This is a great place for a peaceful retreat and sipped the fresh air.

Most people around here are still working as farmers. There is still a stunning lush rice field along the access road to the beach. You can stop a while and enjoy a panoramic view of the vast rice fields. It seems that the farmers have just finished planting the seeds, are still green and not too tall.

There is a beautiful holy temple near the beach, at the end of the coastal path. This calm beach also hosted Balinese customary ritual, the Melasti Ceremony. The ritual is routinely held every year prior to Nyepi Day (Balinese Annual Day of Silence).

On this day Balinese will carry sacred objects from the nearby temple, such as: statue, kober-kober, lelontek, tedung or ceremonial umbrella, etc. People will line up neatly while holding these objects and carry it to the beach for purification.

This is a good spot to enjoy sunrise with the sweet expanse of black sand, crushing waves and fresh morning air. Visitors can stroll along the sandy stretch, morning jogs or cycling.

There is a beach bar available right on this beach, where you can order meals and drinks to feed your tummy while relaxing on the bean bag with colorful umbrellas, napping, listening the sound of waves and enjoying the laid-back feel.

You can relax on the benches outside the bar area and enjoy direct view out to sea. You can also try the volleyball field on this beach. The wave is big and powerful, come and hits some rocks on the beach. This spot is not recommended for swimming.

Many trees along the coastal path, suitable for shelter on a hot day. This beach is located on the West Coast of Bali and is blessed with a scenic, calm and romantic sunset panorama. This is a suitable place for those of you who are looking for peace. Spend the time looking at the ocean and bring this peace to your soul.
