A clean beach is a good beach – Nyang-Nyang Beach in Uluwatu, Bali

A clean beach is a good beach – Nyang-Nyang Beach in Uluwatu, Bali

“Can I take a photo?” I asked the street beach vendor.

“How much do you pay me?“ he responded smiling friendly his white teeth showing.

“I buy a cold water from you ok?”  “ok!”


We hiked down the rocky trail to Nyang Nyang Beach near Uluwatu in South Bali. Only experienced surfer come here to enjoy the thrill of a wave ride.

Here at the beach with the colorful name of Nyang Nyang Uluwatu we met Bagus. Since a couple of years now he comes to the beach to sell cold drinks and snacks. The surfers trust him leaving their belongings with him while catching waves.

We are not experienced surfers but experienced beach goers. So we sit down and watch the surfers doing their job. Bagus constantly picks up the trash at the beach. Once he’s bored he sits next to us and starts chatting.

“I always have to clean up. Nobody else does. The trash comes from the sea some tourist forget their trash as well. It’s annoying but I do not want to have this beautiful beach dirty.”

We also participated in the beach clean up organized by Gili Castle in Gili Trawangan
