The Top 5 Hit List in Uluwatu – Say Hello to a Magical Experience

Uluwatu, located at the corner of the Bukit Peninsula is well known for it's out of the world setting, serene temples, and idyllic beaches. Here we take the time to list down the top things to do.


Dine at the Jimbaran Bay

Some experiences in life pass by you only once. A dinner at the picturesque Jimbaran Bay is one such experience. A number of restaurants line the beach so one has plenty of options at hand. The Menega café is one particular highlight. Focusing on seafood, they have constantly earned rave reviews from patrons and a visit here is highly suggested. Keep an eye out for the prices as some places can be highly priced. The place is also highly frequented by tourists but the eye-catching views of the ocean and the golden sunset fully make up for all the other problems you might face. Only thirty minutes from hotels such as Alila Villas Uluwatu, this is definitely one of the best places to catch the sunset at.


Gili Islands

A trio of islands off the coast, Gili Islands are just the place to go for anyone looking to escape the monotonous urban lifestyle. Free of any motor vehicle, going around the island means taking a ride on a bicycle, horse or a cart. The seas off the islands are free of any form of pollution and are teeming with a large number of marine species, making snorkelling an inexplicable delight here. The island has plenty of bars and is great for anyone looking for a laidback environment.


Take a day trip to Ubud

With a unique monkey forest, acres of glorious rice paddy fields and the famed Bali markets, Ubud is an exciting place to be and has enough to keep you occupied for a day or more. You can easily find a three-bedroom villa in Bali if you are going with family and wish to stay for a few days. Ubud is widely thought of as the cultural heart of Bali and a visit there will show you exactly why. Nothing more than a rural town, it has retained its charm even with the increased tourist exposure. Home to a royal family, a majestic palace towers over the town and is a must visit.


Enjoy some surfing at the Uluwatu Beach

While getting here is not straightforward, the route to the beach will certainly bring you to many interesting sights such as the eye-catching Pecatu village. The beach is set at the foot of cliffs and is ideal for surfing. However, it is recommended that only intermediate and advanced surfers jump into the water. Oh, and casual swimming is a big no over at this beach.


Padang Padang

One of the top beaches in the area, Padang Padang offers stunning views and shallow waters that make casual swimming a great experience. Monkeys frequent the beach adding more charm and wildness to the already wild beach. The beach is mostly free of pollution and also offers great surfing points.
