In the heart of Indonesia there is an island that couldn’t be more vibrant and exciting. From waterfalls and hikes to shopping, massages and yoga – Bali has it all. I completely fell in love with that place and would like to share some of my highlights to do there.
Experience the surf vibe in Uluwatu
No matter if you are an experienced surfer or just enjoying to observe the others in high waves while sipping a cocktail – Uluwatu Blue Point is your spot!
At night you can party hard at Single Fish or for a more chilled evening, head to Angel Martz Sport Bar where you can buy your drinks at the store for cheap money and smoke a shisha.
If you’re not into surfing or in need for a break, stroll along gorgeous beaches.
Don’t forget to visit the Uluwatu Temple right by the water. It’s stunningly beautiful – PROMISE!
Visit the Gilis
Gili Trawangan also referred to as Gili T is the biggest of three island and more for the party crowd. Gili Air is perfect for relaxing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Gili Meno is the smallest and least touristy one. Mostly locals make vacation here.
Enjoy food and shopping in Ubud
In the middle of Bali, you’ll find food and shopping heaven. Perfect for good, cheap local food and you can get your souvenir shopping out of the way.
Also a visit to the monkey forest is a must when in Ubud – Watch yourself, they seem cute but they’re quite aggressive. Pay them respect and give them some space and you’ll be fine!
Chase waterfalls and hot springs in Lovina
Best to rent a scooter and explore on your own. Traffic isn’t as a bad as in Ubud and public transport will cost you much more.
Get a massage in Seminyak
I’ve had many massages so far but none comes even close to the one from this lady on the picture in Seminyak. It’s a super small tent by the pool at Puri Cendana Resort Bali and there are only two masseuse but oh my those women work wonders. I highly recommend to visit them. They are often booked out, so make an appointment for the next day when you arrive!
At night you’ll see sunsets like this! My absolute favorite spot in all Bali when the day ends.
Enjoy some down time in Canggu
This place in west Bali s super laid-back. Learn how to surf, grab good food, do yoga classes, hit the markets and simply enjoy the sunny side of life.
For the ink addicts there’s a special treat in Canggu. Tacco Tattoo Tuesday at Deus. The name already gives it away – iy you buy a Tacco on a Tuesday you get a free Tattoo
Another thing to do near Canggu is visiting Tanah Lot for sunset. It’s quite packed but still a nice sunset and cool temple.
Hire a driver to take you to some temples
That’s a good activity when you’re in Ubud as it’s the middle of the island. Find a group and book a driver from the street for the whole day. Then tell him to take you to the best temples. He will also have some information on the places for you – win win.
Enjoy Bali 🙂
