A magnificent and preserved bay
The long white sandy beach of Balangan is among the most beautiful in the island and deserves as such to make a stop there, whether it is to have a drink or to eat facing the sea, or even to bath and sunbath in the morning. In the afternoon, surfers take possession of the premises, as the waves become bigger, making bathing fairly difficult.
From the car park, you will access the beach via stairs that will lead you to its extremity consisting of rocks carved by water, in which splashing around is rather pleasant. You will also have the chance to hike up to get a bird’s eye view over the whole beach.
Recommended visit duration: 60 minutes.
Spectacular and enchanting.
Tanah Lot, meaning “earth” and “sea”, is nestled high up on a rock and beaten by the waves of the surrounding Indian Ocean. It is a very important pilgrimage site for Hindus and a very popular destination for travellers and photographers.
You will have the chance to get closer to the temple at low tide, without however having the possibility to enter (its access is reserved for believers only). In order to get a fabulous view on this wonder with impressive waves in the background, you will have to move away from the temple and position yourself on the surrounding cliffs.
Recommended visit duration: 60 to 90 minutes.
The temple dominating the ocean.
Erected in the 10th century, Uluwatu - situated at the southern end of the island - is one of Bali’s oldest temples. 70 metres above sea level; it overlooks the ocean and is dedicated to the spirits of the sea. It is also one of the 9 temples, which, according to Hindu precepts, aim at protecting the island from evil spirits.
Even though travellers are not granted access to the temple - reserved for believers - the scenery of the waves crushing into the cliffs is worth the effort when the sun is turning the whole landscape into a soft orange-tinted backdrop.
Recommended visit duration: 60 minutes.
Jimbaran Fish Market
Splendid boats and rare species.
Jimbaran fish market is a true and authentic jewel. Each morning, hundreds of Balinese come to get their supplies in freshly caught seafood and fish: mahi-mahi, tuna, barracuda, rainbow runner, red snapper, squid or even lobster.
This is for you the rare chance to discover other fish species and you can count on the warm welcome of the locals who work effectively behind their stalls to learn more on their catch of the day. Dozens of Jukungs - these absolutely photogenic Balinese fishing boats - are also visible on the nearby beach.
Recommended visit duration: 45 minutes.
