Amazing rays of afternoon light through this cave ❤️. Tegal Wangi Beach is one of the most unique ‘hidden’ beaches to grace the western rim of southern Bukin Peninsula, and despite the fact it’s very well -known amongst locals, it is 'in plain sight', and publicly accessible. Tegal Wangi Beach is named after the temple perched on top of the limestone cliff that overlooks the coast, reachable via a paved road just to the right of the entrance of the glitzy Ayana Resort and Spa in Jimbaran. Tegal Wangi Beach offers breathtaking seacapes with cool natural features - low tides and crimson sunsets reveal seaweed-covered stony barriers that add an abstract border and foreground to its wider ocean views.
