Recording royalty free ocean sounds at Uluwatu, Bali!
First off I didn’t went to the “Eat Pray Love” beach because too many people are hanging around this area and ruining the ocean sound in my opinion.
If you want more ocean sounds check out the link to the Ocean Sounds At Tanah Lot!
I drove 5 minutes by motorbike to a small cave called “The Blue Point Beach” or “Pantai Suluban”.
You pay a small parking fee what is around 5000 Rupiah.
After passing several bars and a pretty dangerous small and steep walkway I finally found my way to the beach.
It is like an open cave and not many people came here while I was recording.
Surfers using this beach to get out to the ocean.
If the sun sets it must be an incredible view and it felt like I am on a “Pirates of the Caribbean” set.
How I Record The Ocean Sounds
I walked around with my DPA 4060 in my hand and the H6 around my neck to record the sound on different locations inside this cave.
I stepped in the wet sand and in the water to catch the waves coming in and out. With shoes and socks by the way! 🙂 I recommend flip flops but not bare foot. I saw broken glasses and the stones can be very sharp.
You will listen to a really cool rumbling in the beginning of the recordings and later on the waves are sloshing against the stones.
At the end of the recording, you can listen to water dripping from the stones.
It took me about 3 hours to arrive Uluwatu but it was totally worth it!
“Just take your time – wave comes. Let the other guys go, catch another one.”
