If you're standing in Bingin, you probably deserve to be there. It meant trusting a local's tip, navigating through an unlikely maze of forest, blind corners, alleys, and toll-booth trolls. Your reward magically appears in the form of the most amazing beach in Bali. The beach is a long stretch of golden sand, with a shallow reef break and simple, bohemian restaurants that serve cheap food and beer on the sand. Bingin remains pristine in the winter months when Kuta and Seminyak beaches are awash in plastic and trash. Gladly absent on Bingin beach are the mass hordes of package tourists waving selfie-sticks and plastered on their mobile phones.
