Best beach for water quality and snorkeling

I’m heading to Bali but trying to figure out the best beach for a couple days—seems like there are contradictions online. I’ve been surprised with the water quality and pollution in Thailand and hoping to find a relaxing location where we can snorkel and hang out. No interest in the party scene—just beautiful sand and a nice area. Thanks for your comments.

Hi,

Not really going to find your requirements in Bali. Bali is not famed for its beaches. Also no snorkeling down south.

All the snorkeling/diving bascially takes place on the North East to North West coast.

Amed is the best place for no-nonsense fall in the water snorkeling. Lipah beach and Jemeluk bay popular areas to stay. Lipah sandier but Jemeluk longer with bigger choice of accommodation and eateries.

Or go to Gilis for a few days. On Gili T you can snorkel off the beach in front of the Danima resort with Turtles. Can also get snorkeling trips with locals. IDR200k for 2-3hrs going around the Gilis.

Or chillaxing go to Lembongan. No real fall in the water snorkeling but can get snorkel tours to Manta bay off Penida and other sites.

www.newbrosurfing.com do group tours for IDR200k
