Should you be around Candidasa area, do not hesitate to drop by the Virgin Beach!
The beach is really beautiful!
You drive down by JI. Pantai Perasi (see map at the bottom of the article) and park the car. Then you go down through the woods to get to the beach.
As soon as you get to the beach, the ocean waves rush against you – as you walked right into them!
Large, turquoise, wild waves!
The sand is white, fine and nice to walk in.
If you buy a drink or lunch at one of the beach cafes, they offer you a lounger with shade.
Can your child swim at Virgin Beach?
We saw a lot of children swimming in the big waves. Many of them were the aged 9-10 years. There were also very young children swimming, however it was only locals.
The waves was real big that day, and we were warned that there was alot of undercurrent. We noticed it ourself – Sebastian was easily pulled out, even if we just sat in the sand and was playing.
Because he recently just learned to swim, a week earlier – in a swimming pool in Ubud, we thought it was too risky to let him swim in the waves.
