Dreamland Beach, one of the best surfing beaches in Bali, Indonesia is located on the Bukit Peninsula, just slightly south of the famous Jimbaran area. Jimbaran is probably where most tourist will be brought to for seafood dinner. The Dreamland Beach is now kinda located within the Pecatu Indah Resort, a development that was initiated by Tommy Suharto, the son of the ex-Indonesian president.
The development is quite ambitious with condominiums, resort homes and a golf course planned. It recently hosted the Indonesian Womens Open Golf Championship. Being the largest white sand beach in the Bukit Peninsula, the place has been kinda cordoned off and there is an entrance fee now to get to the beach. They have even renamed it the “New Kuta Beach”. Anyway, the development have been going on for 3 or so years and it will be difficult to gauge how well it is going. A view of the currently “empty” shop lots on the way towards the beach.
The beach itself is lovely where there are quite a number of surfer dudes around …
But it is quite quiet there, even on a weekend in the late afternoon. I was even able to take a picture without people on the beach (although there were quite a few just outside the frame of the picture).
More pictures can be found at my picasaweb album.
It is located on the west of the Bukit Peninsula, south of Kuta.
