Tirtha Bayu Location

Tirtha Bayu Estate is located right above a picturesque beach in the serene Seseh-Tanah Lot region of south-west Bali. The area is blissfully semi-rural, with little development apart from a scattering of luxury villas, making it a great opportunity to glimpse traditional Balinese life. The black sand beach can be explored at low tide, but dangerous rips and submerged rocks make it unsuitable for swimming. A clifftop path just outside the villa leads to a small sea temple that clings to the craggy cliffs and is visible from the estate. Following the path around the headland, you will come to Pura Gede Luhur Batu Ngaus, a larger temple perched on a headland which makes an atmospheric spot for sunset (and a peaceful yet equally picturesque alternative to Tanah Lot). Small warungs with beanbags and rustic furnishing serve up cold beer, coconuts and local food.

While Tirtha Bayu may feel like a world away from everything, it’s merely nine kilometres from Echo Beach and all the exciting delights of Canggu.

Things to do

Tirtha Bayu Estate is located in Sesh-Tanah Lot within the Badung Regency, home to some of Bali’s most iconic attractions. The Villa Manager will have a wealth of information about places to visit nearby and staff will also be happy to share their unique insider information on the area. If you need any help making arrangements for transport or tours, the Elite Concierge is always on hand.

Tirtha Bayu Estate is close to one of Bali’s most popular attractions - the famous Tanah Lot Temple (9km), a beautiful site set on a rocky, wave-battered island just metres off the beach. In peak season, a few too many tourists may transform a sunset visit into more of a heaving photo opportunity than a moving experience. Visiting early in the morning (8-9am) provides a better idea of the power of the location and the chance to see it undisturbed apart from perhaps an offering ceremony.
