Blessed with beautiful landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and some of the finest surfing swells in the world, Bali is undeniably a tropical island paradise. There’s a good reason why Bali has been on the top list of the most sought-after travel destinations in the world. The island has a charming way of taking travelers on a journey across its beautiful landscapes and offers a cultural experience that is likely unique only to this island of the Gods.
In this article, we’ll be sharing 4 ideas of things to do on your holiday in Bali. Of course, there are many more - so please reach out and let us know if you’re looking for further inspiration!
Seafood dining in Jimbaran
Located just south of Kuta is Jimbaran Bay, where you can enjoy fresh seafood right on the beach. As you arrive, you’ll be able to hand-pick which type of seafood you’d like, as well as how much you’d like! You’ll then have the option of sitting at the tables prepared right on the beachside! We recommend arriving just before sunset, so you’ll be able to enjoy your meal as the sun sets over the horizon.
Surf the waves in Bingin Beach
The southern beaches between Jimbaran and Uluwatu area are widely known for their surfing swells, amongst them Bingin Beach. One of the perks of Bingin Beach is that it is relatively secluded, therefore allowing for fewer crowds to deal with. You can also paddle over to the waves of Dreamland and Impossibles or even to Padang-Padang.
Kecak Dance at Uluwatu Temple
Your visit to Bali wouldn’t be complete without the world-famous Kecak Dance. There are many locations where you can witness the performance, but undoubtedly the best place would be to catch the performance in the legendary Uluwatu Temple. The show begins just before sunset in an outdoor amphitheater overlooking the Indian Ocean. This sets the stage for an unforgettable cultural experience for your trip to Bali.
Watch the sunset in Bingin Beach
Last, but certainly not least of things to do in Bali, is to witness the legendary sunset of Bali. You can watch the sunset from any of the western beaches in Bali, but the absolute best vantage point would be from the cliffs in Uluwatu or Bingin Beach. As Mick’s Place Bali is situated right on top of Bingin Cliff, just grab a cool drink and enjoy the spectacular view in one of our hammocks or sun loungers.
