    Transportation around the Bukit

    by balisunshine Written Jul 17, 2008
    Rent a motorbike

    If you plan to rent a motorbike
    from one of the locals in the Bukit area,
    be warned that motorbikes are limited
    compared to the Kuta/Seminyak area.

    Hence, you have more of a chance of
    winding up with a motorbike that
    haven’t been well maintain,
    or a bit old,
    and at a higher price.

    If you plan to zoom from
    wave to wave on a motorbike,
    then it may be worth the trip
    down to town to rent the motorbike
    that will be getting you around.

    If you plan to rent a motorbike
    while staying in Uluwatu,
    going off road seeking adventure,
    you may just get a flat tire along the way.

    Well, just on Jalan Tanjung Simah,
    on one of the roads that lead to Impossible beach,
    there’s a very young guy who can fix your tube.

    I my case,
    it seems I always go on
    those seriously rugged roads
    causing serious damage to my tube,
    so I wind up having to get a new one.

    The price at the time of my last flat,
    40,000 Rp

    Give me wheels!

    by balisunshine Written May 2, 2007
    We're set to go!!!

    If you don’t plan
    to stay at one of
    the beach front warungs
    and never move from there,
    then you will be needing some wheels.

    If you are not a pack
    of surfer dudes traveling together,
    then a motorbike is essential.

    Make sure you get that
    International Driver’s Permit, though
    or you’ll wind up paying extra cigarette money
    to the cops for not following the rules.

    A good place to call for a motorbike is
    Nyoman at Padang Padang Inn.
    This Balinese has impressed me
    at his business styles.

    He’s on top of it,
    in comparison to local standards.

    The long, winding Road to Balangan

    by balisunshine Written Apr 27, 2007
    New, paved road to Balangan

    Since they have started
    the construction at Dreamland,
    they have closed off the access
    to Balangan via that property.

    BUT, the did built a new,
    paved road leading to it
    starting at the crossing
    located a Nirmala grocery store.

    The road drives through some
    beautiful vegetation and a Balinese village.
    It just takes longer to get there,
    if you are coming from
    any of the other beaches
    further down south.

    The Streets of Bingin

    Walking will be a main source
    of transportation if
    you plan to lodge yourself
    at the beach right in front
    of the waves at Bingin,
    Dreamland or Uluwatu.

    Don’t get me wrong,
    it’s helpful to still
    have another means
    of transportation in case
    you need to start chasing the waves
    all over the place.

    At low tide
    you can around to most beaches
    along the shore,
    but there is a deep area after Padang Padang.

    And if you do get bored of ‘just’ waves,
    or need something besides your surf board,
    it’s good to have wheels.

    Petrol in a bottle

    by balisunshine Written Apr 22, 2007

    There isn’t a real petrol station
    after you have climbed up the hill to Bukit,
    but there are plenty of local stops
    where they sell petrol by 1 liter or 2 liter bottles.

    Prices are slightly higher
    than on lower ground.
    At the time of writing this,
    for 2 liters the price is 12,000 Rp
    in the Bukit area.

    2,000 more that other places in Bali.
    They say that the petrol
    sold in these bottles
    might be a bit watered downed.

    But hey! You’re probably
    renting the motorbike anyway.

    What counts is that you get there.
    Right?

    How do I get there?

    by balisunshine Written Apr 22, 2007
    Just follow the signs
    4 more images

    Addresses in Bali in general,
    don’t make a lot of sense.

    Then, if you decide to take a cab
    from another area from where you want to go,
    they will most probably say at first,
    that they know where they are going.

    But once you are approaching your destination,
    they will start looking a bit bewildered.
    Like traveling in a maze.

    In the Bukit area,
    there are a lot of signs
    indicating different hotels/bungalows.

    So, you may need to keep your eyes open.

    It’ always good to
    have the number of the local taxi stand.
    This particular one is located
    next to Padang Padang Beach.

    Across from the parking lot.

    So, they will know how to find you
    if you are staying in the area.

    Chasing the wave

    by balisunshine Written Apr 18, 2007
    Mtorbikes with a surfboard rack

    If you are one of those restless surfers,
    chasing the waves from one beach to another,
    then definitely rent a motorbike!

    One with a surf board rack,
    of course.

    It’s not a bad idea to rent a motorbike, period.

    There are several places
    around the Uluwatu area that rents them.

    It’ll help you get around from one beach to another,
    to go eat somewhere else
    besides the local warung on the beach,
    to maybe go to the internet café,
    to buy shampoo…what?

    You don’t use shampoo?

    Toll Time

    Toll at Uluwatu Beach

    Every time you enter
    certain surf beaches,
    such as at Uluwatu, Bingin or Dreamland,
    there is a toll that needs to be paid.

    Make sure you have the change!
