Medewi Beach

Medewi Beach is located in Jembrana, an area of rugged natural beauty. Renowned for its superb surfing on high, long rolling waves. Spectacular sunsets add romance to the tropical evenings. Medewi beach located 72 kilometers from Denpasar (about 2 hours drive), or about 34 kilometers west of Tabanan City, located in the Medewi village, Pekutatan, Jembrana regency, Bali. The beach is a bit remote location, near Ketket forestry that numerous in western Bali long time ago. Then in 1912, the forest near the beach was opened by the citizens so the access to the beach becomes easier.

Medewi very nice beach waves are used for surfing. Many tourists come to surf there. The beach on the cover of small rocks and true. Very few parts of the sandy beach. Because the river which empties into the sea Medewi, brought a lot of rocks from the mountain. Thus, each of floods in the river, lots of rocks washed into the sea, and then washed ashore Medewi. So, do not fit a walk on this beach. Certainly would not feel comfortable. But here is suitable for surfing, because the waves are very good.

Prior to the beach Medewi, from Denpasar-Gilimanuk highway, on the edge of the highway. Is the settlement, residents there largely Moslem. Accommodations in the region is less adequate. You might be a little sad to see the conditions there. However, once you enter the path to the beach, you will see the farm population. Medewi beach hotel to stay there. I do not recommend you to come to the beach Medewi if not the purpose of surfing. Since there is only suitable for surfing tour.

Please note, during the rainy season Medewi beach is very dirty. Due to flooding in the river that carries waste leaves and twigs from the mountains, carried away by the sea water, then washed to shore. Seawater would be very murky, brown, so it is not suitable for bathing and surfing.
