Secluded beach gateways in Bali – Where sunset is more than a reverie

You can just imagine how stunning the coastlines would be in a place that is often referred to as the Island of the Gods. The air still cool with fresh breeze is what any tourist would crave for. But then, why choose Bali for your private beach getaways? The reason is simple. The sea is calm, yet the tide is full – just what you look for.

Kuta Beach

What strikes you more than anything here is the stunning sunset. This is also flanked by enough eateries to satisfy your taste buds. You can also look for surfboards and lounge chairs which are available for rent.

Balangan Beach

Take a while to take in its formation: long and the rocky cliffs. And those palm trees in the surrounding guarantees protection from the scorching sun, if you happen to hang around during the daytime. The distant scenery of sun umbrellas and surfer bars could be more than tempting to visit Balangan Beach.

Indonesia has some of the most beautiful tropical destinations the planet has to offer. Many would immediately think about Bali where these are concerned, but there’s more than meets the eye.

What and Where

The Nusa Penida is an island that is situated south-east of Indonesia’s most popular island of Bali. The two landmasses are separated by the Badung Strait. Nusa Penida is popular for being a lot more tranquil and nature-focused as opposed to the more tourist-centric nature of Bali.

Bird Sanctuary

Nusa Penida and the nearby islands of Lembongan and Ceningan are all classified as bird sanctuaries and are a result of regulations imposed by the traditional communities of the respective landmasses. This happened when all of the 41 villages that are scattered among the islands decided to integrate bird-protection into their laws.

Dive Sites

Some of the best dive sites in the area are actually found within the boundaries of Nusa Penida, and these include Toyapakeh, Malibu Point, Manta Bay and Crystal Bay. If you’re a scuba-diving enthusiast residing at a nearby Bali resort or hotel along the likes of Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort be sure to visit this island.

Broken Beach

This is one of the most beautiful spots in Nusa Penida and is a sheltered bay that was once a cave whose roof has since collapsed.

An Adventurous Day at Bali Bike Park – The Ultimate Playground for Daring Cyclists

Cycling is one of the world’s most popular activities, and for many people, it’s their gateway to a world of excitement. The Bali Bike Park is the most harmonious union between bicycles and adventure.

Background

Bali is renowned for her tropical splendour, featuring lush forest landscapes, beautiful beaches, and many luxurious Bali resorts. This island also has a thirst for adventure that is almost infectious, and this is most evident in the Bali Bike Park.

Inception

The Bali Bike Park is the brainchild of Alex Springenschmidt and was launched not too long ago, in 2014. He was initially drawn to Bali because of its surfing potential but ended up establishing the bike park instead.

Jungle Playground

The park consists of a series of trails that have been laid out within the lush tropical sprawl that is Bali. These trails can be quite demanding and one should definitely be pretty competent with a bike since this experience is geared more towards enthusiastic cyclists and not laymen.

The Trails

The park consists of many downhill trails, and shuttle services are provided to the starting point of whichever downhill descent you wish to make. Most of these are quite demanding, but some are a lot more intense than others. If you’re an adrenaline junkie enjoying a luxurious stay at a place such as Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort, then this experience might be exactly what you’re looking for.
