Best spots for photography?

I'm planning a day trip from seminyak

With hubs and our 3 year old.

I'm a photographer so I want to take every opportunity for photos and be in cool locations for golden hour/sunset as well as spend the arvo at a beach for swimming. We don't mind carrying the wee one down some steps.

I'm thinking bingin beach, blue point and the rock bar at sunset.

Am I on the right track? or is there somewhere else you can suggest?

Hi kpies. Balangan beach near Bingin is also a lovely spot. The view from the cliff is really pretty and the beach is lovely. Go at sunset and there are heaps of Brides having their photos there. Bingin is beautiful. Just be aware of the many steps down. Lots of great little warungs on the beach for some great shots. The Cashew Tree up top is a groovy little place for lunch.x

Padang Padang beach is nice at sunset if you can capture boys silhouetted fishing on the big rock on the left near the cliff. Also if you brought a long lens you'll get great surf photos at both Uluwatu beach and Padang Padang. Also you could take a perahu boat ride from Tuban beach and take surf photos from the line up.

Great idea.

I'm not a sports photographer but I did manage to grab these shots using a Canon 70-200mm f4 lens from a perahu boat that we booked for 2 hours at Airport Left. With either a more powerful lens like 300mm or 400mm or even the faster 70-200mm f2.8 lens probably would have been better:
