Privacy

Uluwatu is an isolated corner of Bali, which means that you can have all the privacy you want. There's also not much traffic, so you can get to anywhere you want within the shortest time period possible. But if you are driving, be careful, as the roads are bumpy and have unexpected twists and turns.
