5 Fantastic Things to Do in Uluwatu, Bali - Explore the Natural Beauty and the Local Culture

The seaside destination of Uluwatu usually features on everyone's list of must visit places in Bali. Located in the Bukit Peninsula, Uluwatu has a number of fantastic things tourists can do.


Take in a Fabulous Sunset at the Uluwatu Temple

The Uluwatu Temple is undoubtedly one of the most popular temples in Bali. It is said that this temple is one of the six temples that make up the spiritual pillars of this Indonesian island. However, in addition to its religious and spiritual importance, the Uluwatu Temple is also a must visit attraction for those who wish to take in the beauty of Bali. As the temple is located around seventy meters above sea level, the Uluwatu Temple is one of the best places in Bali to watch the sunset.


Take in a Kecak Dance

When you visit the Uluwatu Temple, make sure to get in a viewing of the Kecak Dance. Also known as the 'fire' dance, the Kecak dance involves the dancers dancing with fire. The Uluwatu Temple in Bali is believed to be one of the best places to see it as it is performed at the amphitheatre of the temple.


Go Cave Exploring at the Suluban Beach

The Suluban Beach is more known amongst surfers because it provides them with an ideal spot to surf out from in order to catch some of the stronger waves to surf. However, because of its natural construction, it is not considered to be a beach that is good for swimming or bathing. Nevertheless, the journey to the beach is quite lovely as it requires you to walk through a cave in order to access the beach. The cave is a limestone cave and visitors to the Suluban Beach must climb down the stairs inside the cave to get to the beach itself.


Have Dinner on the Beach

Make the most of the stunning beaches in and around Uluwatu and opt for a dinner on the beach. While accommodation such as Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort will often arrange such dinners on request, you can plan your own dinner by visiting the Jimbaran Bay. Pack up your dinner and visit the bay just before sunset in order to enjoy a glass or sparkling wine as the dying rays of the sun lights up the sky and the Bay beautifully.


Surf the Balinese Waves

When residing in Uluwatu resorts, you will have access to a number of stunning and beautiful beaches. These beaches include the Uluwatu Beach, the Green Bowl Beach, the Balangan Beach and the Suluban Beach. The latter is a beach from which many surfers choose to surf out from while the Green Bowl Beach is quite secluded. In order to access this beach, one must climb down some very steep stairs which drop down for around seventy-five metres, but because of this, it feels like a private beach and is ideal for surfers.
