    Sanur beach is worth to explore, one can enjoy its white sandy beach, not so crowded compare to the one in KUTA. Its great for walking or bycycling along the beach. Boating is also a nice experience and one can go sailing to Lembongan island to do surfing , snorkelling and diving

    Thanks to DidiBeachBum I went and checked it out and to my suprise I must say dreamland beach is beautiful and the waves is excellent. So if you love surfing and bodyboarding then this surely should be a stop for you. There is some beautiful houses thats still under contruction here and when our taxi stopped I was like what. Is this really dreamland beach but when I walk to the edge of the land...wow I love just love what I was seeing. I went down to the bottom and I must say Thanks Didi...What a good recommendation. Its a pitty I didn`t get to see the sunset here as I hear the sunset here is very beautiful as well.

    Nusa Dua Beach and Resort
    4 more images

    This is a beach which offer so many activities. The sea is calm than the other one in Kuta with its wild wave, so we can do boating to see marine lifes, diving and snorkelling, parachuting and enjoy skiing at the sea. There is also a sanctuary for Bali's green turtle, a bird and Bat show. Tanjung Benoa and Nusa Dua is a real fascinating beach touring in Bali

    Lake Bratan- Bali
    1 more image

    Located at Bedugul, Lake Bratan is worth to visit if one traveling to Bali, if weather is good, one can see a tranquil lake with a mountain as a back ground, it was a cool place at the northern part of Bali, from Denpasar to Bratan will take about three hours drive or by bus

    Bali Buggy Tour

    Us with our Buggy tour guides
    2 more images

    This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Bali. The tour guides ( Godai and Hue) are very friendly and informative. You can find information about the tour at any tourist office. The tour basically consists of driving a buggy on paved and unpaved roads through rice fields, small villages, and temples. The scenery was amazing. Children from the surrounding communities would run out into the roads to wave to us as we zipped through their quaint little villages. The enitre tour lasted 3 hours and included lunch and coffee. A definite on any trip to Bali. Skip a couple of hours at the beach. You won't regret it!

    It was my first time of snorkelling in Bali.
    I did it in Tulamben everyday when I was there,,and will never forget.
    'Cause of I saw Black tip sharks there for my first snorkelling, was quite nice.
    Also lion fish, sea snake and etc.
    Drop off & wreck is only 5-10 metres from the shore.

    Lovina Beach

    4 more images

    Lovina Beach is a situated on the coastal area on the northeastern side of Bali.

    We stayed in Aditaya Beach Resort. Would highly recommended this hotel. We stayed here so that it is our stop after Bedugul and our start of our trip to Kintamani.

    The beach is filled wth black sand which is quite unique. The sand is black due to the volcanic activities. Lovina is a very peaceful beach minus the vendors. It is much quieter than those beaches in the south.

    You can arrange with the hotel to book a dolphin watching tour which starts at 6am (if you can wake up early). The price is quite reasonable at 20,000 RP per pax.

    Cocktails at The Legian Hotel

    by balisunshine Updated Dec 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Feeling like a million dollars at The Legian

    There comes a time,
    every here and then,
    where I indulge in
    a little bit of self pampering.

    One of my favorite treats
    is to have a coffee or a cocktail
    at the Legian Hotel.

    With a spectacular beach front view,
    of one of those inspiring sunsets,
    this is the place where I like to go.

    Prices are a bit steeper here
    than most other places,
    but you know what?

    I'm worth it.
    And I am sure,
    so are you.

    So kick back,
    take sip,
    feel like a million dollars
    and enjoy!

    Temple and views of Padangbai

    Entrance to Pura Silayukti, north-east Padangbai
    4 more images

    There is a steep little climb out of Padangbai to the north-east - end of Jalan Silayutki - taking you to Blue Lagoon Beach but if you are just out for a late afternoon stroll, veer right at the top of the hill which will lead you to a lovely little temple, Pura Silayukti, and provide some great views overlooking Padangbai. The temple grounds are a great place to marvel at Balinese design.

    legian art market

    Legian Art Market....yup,yup,yup....plenty of T-shirts.....nice fragipani printed sarongs.....beach dressers.

    I found a shop full of belts and accessories by the roadside abt 5 mins walk from legian art market !...woohoo! shop owner and his staff were very friendly. As usual you would want to bargain for your stuff. Better still if you are buying a few numbers of an item, i bet u sure can get them ard half the price from the actual quoted. So happy bargaining.

    Inside the Besakih temple
    2 more images

    I must admit that the beaches in Tuban or Kuta are not the best you can find in Bali. The only other option for me is to dip into the swimming pool ...

    We booked ourselves on a 1-day tour to several places...

    Batik factory
    There are many batik factories around the area (I'm lousy with names) and most of them have 'backyard' batik processing facilities.

    Silver+Gold factory
    Nothing to share here. They are selling uninteresting, overpriced goods (I don't even know the market price to start with !! ha ha).

    Art gallery
    Local artists who couldn't sell their paintings elsewhere. They were so desperate that they are willing to lower the price, however, we are not into paintings, therefore - Sorry mate!!

    Mount Batur - Volcano area !! .
    The drive up the scenic hill was fantastic. Along the way there are plenty of restaurants overlooking the volcano. We stopped at one of the restaurants at one of the higher spots and had a magnificent view. Lunch was OK, a bit pricey.

    Temples along the way.
    One of the temple names that I remember is the Besakih temple (the locals called it as the Mother temple). It was built around the 5th century! and the view is awesome.
    We had to wear 'sarongs' in order to get into all the temples.

    Tips: If you wear long pants/jeans, you do not need to hire the sarongs.

    Snorkelling in Candidasa

    by Daihappydai Written Apr 24, 2011

    Heading out to the tiny gilis for snorkelling
    4 more images

    There is some snorkelling to be done straight off the beach at Candidasa, particularly east of the lagoon. But for the best snorkelling sites, it is better to hire a guide or fisherman with a jukung to take you out to the sheer 'gilis' in Amuk Bay or down to Blue Lagoon. Take care when jumping into the middle of the ocean around the rocks as the currents can be quite strong and surface water choppy. There is clearly an abundance of nutrients in the water - you are likely to see very large schools of fish. Lots of fish, but not a great deal of interesting coral. A morning trip will cost between 80 and 150,000 rupiah for the boat depending on distance you want to travel. My guide asked if I wanted lunch - after we had finished snorkelling, he prepared a freshly caught fish on the beach which came complete with homemade spicy peanut sauce.

    Pura Goa Lawah - Bat Cave Temple

    by Daihappydai Written Apr 23, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Entrance to Pura Goa Lawah, East Bali
    4 more images

    Pura Goa Lawah, opposite a black sand beach on the east coast of Bali 3km before the turn off to Padangbai, is an important ceremonial temple for the Balinese living in the Semarapura and Amlapura regions. There is a large cave at the rear of the temple complex full of bats. It is said that a giant snake, Naga Basuki, lives in the cave. Tourists are welcome to enter the cave even when ceremonies are being conducted but must be dressed appropriately - there is a small admission fee and a small cost to hire a sash and sarung. You can take photos inside the complex but should not walk in front of people who are praying and those receiving blessings. Well worth a visit if you are travelling up the coast to Padangbai, Candidasa or further on to Amed. Opposite the temple there are stalls selling cool drinks.

    VISIT KUTA BEACH

    KUTA BEACH LOOKING NORTH A VERY FLAT SURF THIS DAY
    4 more images

    Located just south of Denpassar Airport and a short Taxi ride is Kuta Beach..I arrived at my accomodation..and after the flight and settling things at the hotel, I was ready for some relaxing time at the beach that was just a short walk from where I was staying.
    Kuta is a long beach and can get quite crowded with surfers ..The main attraction of course is the enticing surf and board riders come from far and wide to catch a wave or more...from what I could see on my first day...the good waves were way out off the point ...way out..Many "touts" work the beach selling anything imagineable...but that is Bali...it's so easy to say "no thanks" and smile..as they are only trying to make a living ...under the facade of the fancy places here so many of the local people are on heartbreak street..The locals are just so glad to see the many tourists as they depend on the income from tourism so much ..as they found out after the Terrorist attacks some time back here in Kuta beach..
