Dreamland Beach Enjoy Lullaby in the Land of Dreams

Friday, November 11, 2011

This time I'll give it a very exciting news for tourists who like to go to beach breeze to enjoy the beach, sunbathing, and of course who like to surf.

Dreamland Beach is in the area called Pecatu. Precisely, a few kilometers before the holy Pura Uluwatu and sacred or within about 45 minutes from the city of Denpasar. Dreamland beach surrounded by cliffs towering and surrounded by a large rock around its shores. This white sandy beach, situated below a steep cliff with a beautiful scenery.To reach this location we can rent a car or a motor vehicle that is widely available in Bali with varying prices. For the price of a car generally is Rp. 250.000 / day (in the currency of Indonesia) and to motor around Rp. 35,000 / day (in the currency of Indonesia). Not too hard to find sights on this one, because of its location close to attractions Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) and Jimbaran Beach is famous for its seafood restaurants. When will visit this beach, we will enter the gates of Bali Pecatu Graha, because it is located in the area Pecatu Indah Resort, which is currently in the process of developing into an exclusive resort in Bali.

Historically, this location was formerly barren land is far from being exclusive. Pecatu natives living with subsistence farmers. Residing in the natural contours of hills containing limestone, making them have to rely of meager agricultural income. Then in around 1996, dibentangkanlah Pecatu Graha project sponsored by Tommy Suharto, who was then the father still reigns the leaders of the country. The courtyard was originally a beautiful beach just a small point of the area of ​​900 hectares owned by PT Bali Pecatu Graha (BPG), but later purchased the surrounding land belongs to the people and transformed into a super-exclusive resort called "resort Pecatu Beautiful". It is said that the resort is not only the concept but the tour will be a neighborhood's most unique & travel throughout Southeast Asia. Although many residents who oppose this project because it was forced to sell their land cheaply, but residents eventually expect Pecatu exclusive resort project is completed, so that they can turn to his fate with other businesses in the field of tourism.

Because that land around the beach called Dreamland (dream land) by the local people. But reality says another, the project was eventually abandoned for a long time although the project eventually resumed its development in recent years. Pecatu residents who have very high hopes from the results of this project finally took the initiative to make Dreamland a beach area by installing a tourist attraction entrance ticket costing Rp.5000 / person or rent a small tent to ward off the sun and beach chairs to relax for Rp. 25,000 / seat.


White sand and a steep gully into which so captured the eye sight to be seen. The water was crystal clear yet still seem too disturbed and undisturbed by the hordes of tourists who often visit this resort island. Clarity of the water reflecting the beautiful blue sea, seemed far from trash pollution that often plagued the other attractions in the area of ​​Bali's beaches. Waves and sound waves make lullaby (a type of song to euthanize children) are tunable and immerse for the visitors. Despite spending all day on this beach, it's not boring. For those of you who enjoyed photography, the charm of this beach will give you satisfaction in finding the object photographed.

Locations in the clean white sandy beach just below the narrow steep rock walls, is suitable as a dream beach to just relax enjoying the sunset orange or see the attraction of the surfers in the waves roll. The waves are high and large much in demand by fans of water sports surfing (Surfing), even Dreamland has become a new kind of surf spots for the area of ​​Bali.

Along the coast looked the tourists soaking up the sun while reading a book in a hammock while enjoying the breeze light massage, or asleep locals enjoying sunbath without wearing clothes over it (topless). Aha, this was the one who says how Dreamland somewhat different from the beaches in Bali in general and even more similar to Bondi Beach in Australia which is famous for its nude beachnya. Because the location is still somewhat remote rather then tourists are free to wear whatever they like on this beach, with no binding rules as in other coastal areas that prohibit the tourists look naked. Outside of eastern civilization that upholds ethical propriety, Dreamland is a beautiful beach that her beauty exceeded even the charm of Bondi Beach. Indonesia is a blue charm and captivating engraved in the frame of this Dreamland beach. If the island resort into your next travel destination, Dreamland can be a very interesting place to visit.
