If you ever go to Bali, and you are not a lucky digital nomad or a famous Instagramer that can spend 30 days in the magical island, you might want to read this.
We decided to do a 7 days tour through the island, spoting Bali’s most iconic places and activities to get the maximum profit out of it. If by profit we understand amazing experiences and cool activities.
1. Sunrise at the Terrace Fields
Even you are not a morning person, try to get up at least one day at 6am and drive to Sideman, near Ubud. This location is perfect to enjoy the sunrise as there are several terrace fields that you can access pretty easy. This place is not as famous as the Tegalalang rice terraces, but one difference is that the Sidemen rice terraces aren’t as touristic as the Tegalalang and you can get amazing views like this one.
2. Get lost through the magical temples
Bali is full of temples, every single village has at least one and in most of them, you have to pay entrance or give some money just for charity. Usually, you are not allowed to go in with shorts or skirts, that’s why at the entrance you will get a very thin scarf to cover your legs. Here is a list of the 3 best temples you should not miss in Bali:
Tanah Lot Temple
3. Nusa Penida
Nusa Penida is an Island 45 minutes away from Bali. You get there by speedboat from a little town called Sanur. We hired a round trip with a local driver that takes you to the most iconic spots in the island which are mainly 3: Broken beach, Angel’s Billabong and Kelingking beach.
4. Stay at the Best Villas
Bali has some of the most beautiful villa’s i’ve ever seen. If you want to have a place where you can relax after a hectic day, with your private pool at a good cost you might want to check out the villas from Berawa Beach State – www.villasdirectbali.com
5. Have Lunch in a Trendy Cafe in Canggu
Canggu is the most beautiful town we saw in Bali (only our opinion 🙂 ). One of the things we enjoyed the most was the nice cafes and restaurants there. Lots of interesting gastronomic option for you to pick.
I really recommend to visit:
6. The Bali Swing
Next to Ubud, there is the famous Bali Swing. This place has several swings where you can take amazing pictures while you swing into “Da jungle”. I have to say I felt like a little kid and I would go there again anytime. However, take into consideration that this place is for wealthy moglies, as the entrance fee is 35 USD.
7. Sunset in Balangan Beach
Bali has numerous beaches that you can enjoy a good sunset, but I found spectacular the one in Balangan Beach. The huge rock at the righ side of the beach and watching all the surfers surf on the leftside was just incredible.
I really recommend that you grab your scooter while in Canggu and go to this beach 2 hours before sunset to catch a good spot and have some beers!
8. Handara Golf Resort, the famous gate
Handara Golf Resort is where the famous Balinese gate is located. Many instagramers visit this place in the north of Bali. I have to say it is spectacular. Definetly worth the ride!
We also stayed at the resort, but I’m sure you can find cheaper options nearby that will suit your budget better.
This is it guys! If you have recommendations about Bali, feel free to write us a note and we will be very happy to explore them!
