Things You Must Not Miss When in Manggis - What to do in this tropical paradise

Though Manggis is a relatively unknown area in Bali and doesn't draw as much attention as the more popular provinces, there's plenty to do here. Here are some things you must not miss.


Bias Tugel Beach

Bias Tugel Beach is definitely an underrated beach in Bali, but its lesser known status adds to the charm. The lack of crowds makes this a great place to relax and soak up the sun. The white sands are stunning, and the clear water is great for swimming and snorkelling. The area surrounding the beach does not have much to offer in terms of restaurants and hotels, but there are plenty of small food and drinks stalls that serve up some authentic and delicious cuisine that is sure to satisfy your cravings. There is no entrance fee for the beach, but there is a small parking fee. Bias Tugel Beach is a great place to spend a day enjoying the tropical sunshine of Indonesia. The privacy you can enjoy at this beach is not something that most beaches in Bali have to offer, so be sure not to miss it while in Manggis.


Kusamba Traditional Salt Mining

Bali's beaches are useful for far more than just sunbathing! You may or may not have wondered how the salt in your food got to your table. Regardless of your answer, you can finally witness the process first hand at the Kusamba Traditional Salt Mines. The procedure is a fascinating one, using techniques that have been perfected over centuries. You can even try your hand at salt mining, with some help from the families who run these salt mines. They will teach you all about the process, which is certainly fascinating information. Support their businesses by buying salt or the little trinkets that they sell; a unique souvenir from a unique experience! This activity won't take long, with visitors usually spending around an hour here, so be sure to try and fit it into your schedule.


Blue Lagoon Beach

Yet another underrated beach in Manggis! This beach is good for snorkelling, though there is a cold undercurrent sometimes. It is a relaxed and unknown beach, so you can escape from the hordes of tourists at the other beaches. Blue Lagoon Beach is also great if you want to hop on a boat tour and travel the turquoise blue waters that surround the area. If you like the beach, be sure to think of location when picking your Hotel. Candidasa and other provinces in Bali have some fantastic beach resorts, which will make your holiday luxurious and relaxing. A hotel such as Alila Manggis in a great location will make your trip far easier to plan. Though these beaches may not be as empty as Blue Lagoon Beach, they are still convenient and a fantastic experience.


Tenganan Ancient Village

If you want to gain an insight into the traditional local life in Bali, this village is worth a visit. There is no entrance fee, but a donation is required to enter. Hire a local guide who can take you around and explain all that happens within the village. If you are visiting during a full moon, you will be able to see the celebrations that happen. This is definitely an unmissable experience while in Manggis.
