This is a small secret beach located near Balangan Beach from earlier in this album. There is a path through the jungle from Balangan beach to here. I would come here often when I needed to relax, reflect or just have some alone time. The beach was usually empty, with occasional visitors. I felt like it was my piece of paradise, my own secret hiding place. I brought friends and tourists here to show them something a bit more off the beaten path.
Welcome to Pantai (beach) Padang Padang. I lived fairly close to here during my time in Bali. I learned how to surf at this beach, danced to live reggae bands with friends on Saturday nights and ate some of the best fried noodles after coming in from a surf. A lot of good times were spent on this beach. And although it gets crowded by tourists, there's still a simplicity that doesn't seem to fade.
