Six Awesome Locations to be Free from the Crowds in the Island of Bali

Here are the list of places in Bali when you are tired of the regular stuff.

1

Balian Beach

Balian Beach

#balian #beach

The Balian beach of West Bali has always been popular with intrepid surfers, with the ocean featuring multiple breaks

While they are mostly suited to seasoned surfers, beginners can probably have some enjoyment in the wash.

The black-sand beach has a rugged, somewhat desolate feel due to the thundering surf

Whilst it is not actually swimmer-friendly, it's ideal for long contemplative walks and rummaging for jetsam and flotsam.

There are yoga retreats at the low key resorts along the seashore, and rental motorbikes for exploring the side road around Balian, where rice paddies tumble down to meet the sea.

At nearby Soka, a temple plays host to a massive cavern full of bats that emerge at sunset.

Lodging at Balian is mostly directed toward surfers however, some family-friendly as well as upper-end areas are accessible.

Expect local food at the guesthouses and a mixture of surfer cuisine.

Sidemen

Sidemen

#sidemen #bali

Sidemen is a tiny village situated in a yawning valley about an hour's drive inland from the mid-east coast.

Here you will appreciate paddy views from your guesthouse or along a rejuvenating ramble through pink frangipani trees that make for photo opportunities that are pretty or patios with occasional reddish hibiscus.

Sidemen is a fantastic area to lease a pushbike or perhaps sign up with a small group tour to coast downhill via a course with fantastic views

Overnight tourists can get out of bed early to scale up the top of Gunung Agung, the island's tallest and most revered volcano, just in time for sunrise -- this is actually a tough hike

Lodging at Sidemen is usually an extraordinary value and varies from fundamental through to mid-range, with a few places offering pools.

Amed

Amed

#amed #bali

Truth be told, Amed has long been on the map for tourists trying to elude Bali's insane south, but the chain of looping bays along the shore of east Bali retains a charming washed out feel -- like a spot that appreciated a long-passed heyday and now has a fairly slightly tired European feel

The appeal here is definitely solid off-the- beach snorkeling and scuba diving in several of the bays, including the the widely known Japanese wreck at Banyuning

It's possible for you to base yourself at Amed to snorkel the liberty wreck at Tulamben, also.

Otherwise, it is a terrific spot to just relax and view the jukungs (traditional outrigger canoes) fan out with their vibrant triangular sails onto the waters before dawn, returning in the early morning

Or, use a boatman for taking you out to witness the sunrise over the highest peak, Gunung Rinjani in Lombok.

Munduk

Munduk

#munduk #bali

Bali is not cocktails, all beaches and warm weather

Offering mostly guesthouses as well as home stays, this really is not a location for extravagance, but anywhere you pick should have amazing views of farmland forest and paddies studded with coconut palms to remind you that, yeah, you are still on a tropical isle.

Road directions available at hotels highlight a range of low-key walks, which includes a number of remarkable waterfalls which are a cinch to reach on foot.

Munduk is largely enticing for just what isn't here: no crowds of people, no travelers shops and no hassles.

Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida

#nusapenida

Bali doesn't just include the core isle itself

The island is similar to the Bukit Peninsula in Bali and, thanks to its relative remoteness, was a prison during the early 18th century.

While the diving here is exceptional -- when conditions are right, manta rays and mola molas -- you are also going to be rewarded by renting a motorbike to go exploring on the comparatively barren island, where you are able to skirt breathtaking cliffs soaring hundreds of meters high.
