Things to see and do

  • Pura Luhur Uluwatu
    4 stars

    When the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, the silhouette of the temple perched on the edge of the towering cliffs leaves jaws gaping — it is an absolutely stunning sunset point. At the same time, a kecak dance performance takes place and is so well done that it is definitely worth the 70,000 ... read more

  • Balangan beach
    4.5 stars

    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 it). The beach is down a steep staircase and an assortment of warungs and cheap homestay/shacks are set up along the eastern end of the ... read more

  • Dreamland beach
    1 star

    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 monument to bad taste, an absolute eyesore and complete blight on the landscape. Yeah, we're not fans. Nor are the ... read more

  • Bingin Beach
    4 stars

    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 staircases, all very slippery when wet. There are bars, warungs and even an internet cafe, all overlooking the water ... read more

  • Impossibles
    3.5 stars

    Situated midway between Padang Padang and Bingin, Impossibles is mostly cliff and boulders, broken up by the occasional slice of soft yellow sand. It's a lovely area, but incredibly isolated and at night we'd warrant some of the staircases are seriously hazardous. Accommodation is limited, aside ... read more

  • Padang Padang beach
    4 stars

    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 rent. The surfing break is offshore, but the waters in close are calm and there's a good shallows area by the overhang. There's also often ... read more

  • Uluwatu
    4.5 stars

    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 two separate spurs of Jalan Pantai Suluban, each of which terminates at one end or the other of the staircases that weave their way down, rabbit-warren ... read more

  • Nyang Nyang
    4 stars

    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 at the cliff edge. You'll see a small shack of a shop and a house and from there it's a 15-minute walk down the 500+ steps that ... read more
