Discover the magic of Uluwatu and Bukit - Bali unlocked!

Bali, the Indonesian island that is home to many dormant volcanoes, coral reefs and pristine beaches has become a popular holiday destination. Here are some places to visit.


Uluwatu Temple

This is one of the must-visit temples in Bali and is believed to be one of the six spiritual pillars. Perched atop a plateau on a limestone cliff which is almost 250 feet above sea-level facing the southwestern shore, gives this temple a surrounding that is beyond beautiful. The silhouette of the backdrop of the architecture against the stunning colours of sunset will make you click away pictures one after the other. Do look out for the daily Kecak fire dancing performances. The temple isn't too far from Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort.


The nights are quite happening

In Bali, resorts are found in abundance. Along with them, are their own bars and clubs that are constantly buzzing with tourists from around the world. From spectacular and fancy rooftop bars to laid-back bars, there is something for everyone. It is almost impossible to have a boring night on the island. Grab a spot overlooking the waves, sip some cocktails and make more friends or simply enjoy the setting with your significant other if you are the romantic kind.


Suluban Beach

Also referred to as the 'Blue Point', is a unique spot like no other. The beach which is surrounded and hidden away by the limestone formations makes this beach more like a hidden cave beach. To get to the beach, one has to go through a flight of stairs and manoeuvre through narrow gaps via log ramps. There are more tiny caves and rocky openings around the area if you want to explore the beach. It is also a popular spot for surfers and hence can get a tad crowded towards the latter part of the day. Therefore, it is advisable to go in the morning. Do note that the beach is not recommended for younger children.


Bingin Beach

If you are a serious surfer and belong to the advanced skill category, then this would be heaven. Bingbin beach is a world-class surf spot that is graced by advanced surfers who enjoy a challenge. Wave swells can go as high as eight feet making the art of conquering these waves a truly exhilarating and adrenaline pumping experience. For the non-surfers, the beach is ideal for snorkelling and swimming during the times of low tide. If you are feeling quite peckish, head over to one of the many food stalls lined along the shore from where you can obtain cold drinks and light meals.


Jimbaran Fish Market

This is where most of the top chefs of the island buy their seafood from. They are very fresh; boat to the market which means it is as fresh as you can get! To experience an authentic Balinese seafood meal, head over to the market, choose your main dish and take it to the nearby stalls to be barbequed. Enjoy!
