Uluwatu is the nearest nice place you can stay from the Bali Airport. Most people would stay in Kuta which is a very crowded but Uluwatu seems to be more laid back to spend my remaining days in Bali. That’s why it’s easily one of my favorite spots in Bali! And oh, I almost forgot to say it’s a surfer’s spot!
Looking back, I started this journey from West and East Java, Bali’s neighbour island. Then went to Ubud for 4 days to chase epic waterfalls. Then finally to end the trip in Uluwatu for more adventures after some burglar stole my wallet.
I stayed at 24/7 Bed & Breakfast (BOOK HERE) in a hammock style hostel in Jimbaran which was really cool. Not a lot of people would stay here because they thought it’s full of mosquitoes. I actually like the idea but I wasn’t able to get proper sleep because I’m not used to sleeping in a hammock.
In here, I also met this guy from Brazil who just came from India. He’s a yoga enthusiast. He consented on me taking a picture of him in the hammocks.
2 SPOTS TO CHASE SUNSETS:
Karang Boma Cliff– this is spot is literally just the best! It has blown me away how incredible sunsets can be. Just looking into endless of possibilities and nature’s own way of making a show.
There are many ways to get around. One I used is the grab taxi which was really not expensive. The Karang Boma Cliff viewpoint is located in Bukit Peninsula. The Karang Boma Cliff is around 30 minutes drive from where I was staying.
The Grab driver led us to a small car park out the front of a locked gate. There’s no entrance fee but the locals blocked the street so we had to walk for 20 minutes to reach Karang Boma Cliff or pay 40,000 IDR for a scooter transfer from the locked gate. We just followed the trail and it was easy.
Of course, the best time to visit this place is around 5pm-6:30pm for the golden hour.
Looking far enough into the Indian Ocean.
We didn’t see any fall restraints to keep us from falling. So be careful when walking to the cliff.
Another sunset spot is the Tegal Wangi Beach– It’s located in Jimbaran. It’s about 30 minutes from my hostel. This beach is almost secluded. No wonder they call it a hidden beach. It was like we own the place. Getting down was a bit of a work but manageable. There are lots of big stones and big waves! So be careful when you go down.
The place has its own natural jacuzzi.
If you’re looking to book your tours in advance, then worry no more! BOOK HERE for your next Bali Adventure! The good thing about this is you get to meet other travellers from around the world!
