Surfing is not possible at Nelayan Beach as the waves are not high enough. Therefore, this beach is used mostly for swimming and fishing. You will find plenty of people sunbathing or walking along this beach, so bring a good book and sit down and relax here.
The beach does not have many amenities on location, and neither does it have any food stalls. So ensure you bring your own water and some snacks.
Most people get to Nelayan beach using a motorbike, but you can also take a taxi. There are many metered taxis in Bali, particularly in the tourist areas of Denpasar, Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur, Ubud and Nusa Dua. Finding a taxi is extremely easy as taxis usually crawl along the main road beeping at tourists. Make sure to get a taxi with a meter, look for the Bluebird Group taxis, otherwise ensure you negotiate a price before getting in. As a guide, a 5km trip will cost around 40,000-50,000 IDR ($4-$5 AUD or $3-$4 USD).
