Things to see and do

  • Bali’s eastern Bukit beaches
    3.5 stars

    The Bukit peninsula at the southernmost tip of Bali is home to some of the most stunning beaches on the entire island. ... read more

  • Bali’s best beaches on the Bukit
    3.5 stars

    It’s a common complaint from first-time visitors to Bali (we were guilty of this ourselves) that Balinese beaches are just ordinary. ... read more

  • Pura Luhur Uluwatu
    4 stars

    The famed Uluwatu temple, the subject of many postcard photos, is quite small band can feel a little underwhelming after all the hoo-haa, but the real magic appears towards the end of the day. When the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, the silhouette of the temple perched on the edge of the towering ... read more

  • Balangan beach
    4.5 stars

    Balangan is one of Bali's lesser known beaches, but is all the better for it. Glorious surf, amazingly spherical sand and small crowds. Basically the next beach of any size between what used to be known as Dreamland (now fittingly referred to as New Kuta) and the Ayana Resort (and Jimbaran after ... read more

  • Dreamland beach
    1 star

    It wasn't all that many years ago that Dreamland was heralded as the most beautiful beach on Bali. How things change. Now the beachhead for the sprawling Pecatu Indah Resort complex, Dreamland has been renamed New Kuta — an entirely appropriate action. Today, above the beach stands a colossal ... read more

  • Bingin Beach
    4 stars

    Bingin follows on immediately from Impossibles, but unlike Impossibles is absolutely awash in accommodation. It's almost as if the cliff face is built out, with everything from $2 shanties to quite fancy looking air-con villas, and it's all interconnected by a dog's breakfast of trails and ... read more

  • Impossibles
    3.5 stars

    Once you've been up and down a few of the access points at this very isolated stretch of Bukit beach, you'll come to understand why it is called Impossibles. Situated midway between Padang Padang and Bingin, Impossibles is mostly cliff and boulders, broken up by the occasional slice of soft yellow ... read more

  • Padang Padang beach
    4 stars

    Padang Padang comes in two parts: a beautiful little beach that is a hit wit families and a long deserted beach that does require a climb. Oddly, most only go to the latter as that is the one that you can see from the bridge that passes it by. There are also plentiful food vendors and umbrellas for ... read more

  • Uluwatu
    4.5 stars

    This is, without doubt, one of Bali's most spectacular beaches. Cliff backed, the multiple surf breaks make this one of the most famous of Bali's waves. With a multitude of bars and warungs built into the cliff, this is also one of the best for just taking in the scene. The beach can be reached by ... read more

  • Nyang Nyang
    4 stars

    Set at the base of a towering escarpment just to the east of Bali's famous Pura Luhur Uluwatu, Nyang Nyang is simply tremendous. To get there, follow a rough and rocky dirt trail from the main Uluwatu road (look out for the small blue sign reading "Nyang Nyang surfing beach") to where it finishes ... read more
