Referred to as the Island of Gods, Bali offers a captivating journey of discovery, not to mention plenty of fun in the sun, sand and surf! Here are some of the key local attractions.
This is one of the most popular beaches on the island and offers sun-soaked relaxation on the shore. If you are staying at a hotel in Seminyak Bali you can not only spend your days by the ocean but also enjoy the area’s other highlights; these include fashion boutiques, high-end restaurants and trendy clubs like Ku De Ta and Potato Head.
An attraction that may not be well known but is well worth visiting, Mepantigan Bali gives visitors a chance to witness a traditional Balinese martial art that takes place in the mud! Resorts the likes of Katamama offer excursions here where you can even take part in some “Mepantigan” in a muddy setting.
One of the most famed sea temples in Bali, Uluwatu Temple stands on the edge of a cliff offering dramatic seaside vistas, especially at sunset. In the evening, one can also witness a stunning Kecak fire dance nearby which adds to the allure of this temple.
Ubud Monkey Forest
This forest sanctuary is named after its most well-known inhabitants; grey long-tailed macaques! While the forest is also home to ancient temples and statues, these monkeys are the star attractions and you can see a great many of them up close. Some of them are rather mischievous so do be mindful of your belongings!
