Most people are familiar with pristine white sand beaches but many have yet to discover the magic of black sand - and when they do, they are usually left intrigued and amazed. It forms from eroded volcanic material such as lava, basalt rocks and other dark-colored rocks and minerals and is found on beaches near volcanic activity. The black sand on the ‘Island of the Gods’ originates from its most sacred volcano, the majestic Mount Agung. It is believed that black sand possesses healing powers, helping to treat arthritis, sciatica and other joint inflammation illnesses.

Anapuri sits on a quiet and calm Pabean Beach, on Bali’s South-East coast, where guests enjoy tranquility and peace. The only sound ever heard here is the soothing sound of waves gently crashing against the shore. Spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and the monumental silhouettes of Mount Agung and Nusa Penida Island complete the heavenly experience.

Pabean Beach is part of Gianyar, the same regency that Ubud, the cultural and spiritual heart of Bali, belongs to. Hence, a cultural day trip to Ubud is a great option for guests staying at Anapuri Villas.
