Beaches away from the usual east coast / gili areas?

We’ve been to a lot of the east coast areas, we’re done with Gili T and have looked at Nusa Lembongan but not really explored the north coast of Bali or Lombok too much, apart from the Mataram area. We’re looking to try some new places not immediately on the tourist radar - never tried Kuta in Lombok or anywhere on the Bali north coast. What would you suggest that are places a little away from the usual visited areas?

We don’t need massive nightlife - just a few bars / restaurants, not into clubbing - just want something with a little character and a beautiful beach to walk on!

Hi MattandSam. We love the beaches down on the Bukit, such as Bingin and Balangan, so relaxing and pretty. Very laid back and cruisy. You can stay on the beach at Bingin, there are lots of places to stay and warns to eatat. Also places up on the cliff which are beautiful, look up Bali retreats. Balangan is also lovely. Not much to do at these places but relax. We also love Lembongan, going back to all these places in 2 weeks, Yeh!!! x
