Sanur Beach is for those who wish to enjoy the beach life sans the rowdy crowds. Also a 30-minute drive form Sunrise House, it has a relaxed coastal ambience and is the opposite of Kuta, both in characteristics and nuance. An eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and bars with innovative and modern entertainment venues makes Sanur Beach an ideal destination for some laid-back beach time. While here, do pay Pura Blanjong Temple and the Serangan Island Turtle Conservation Centre a visit.
This beach is very cozy and quiet as it is located on behind the cliff. This atmosphere is suitable for tourists that want a relaxing and do sunbathe. Behind its serenity, this beach has big waves, so it attracts a lot of international tourists’ attention.The attractiveness of this beach is its clean and bluish sea water that makes you want to stay longer. You can play with sand, strolling around the coast or just sitting back.

Green Bowl Beach
Green bowl beachGreen bowl beach is a hidden treasure and is unexplored among the tourists. We reached this place in the noon. There are about 300 stairs leading down to this beautiful paradise. Less crowd, shallow beach with stones that gives this place it's name. There are two beautiful limestone caves on the beach and the best time to visit is in the evening.
Paragliding at the Pandava Beach This is one of the best things we did in Bali (another bucket list ticked, while I would like to do it again but in a different terrain now). Its best to book it online in Bali. The guys are super safe and not for a moment did I feel scared or unsure. Within moments of getting into the gear I was up in the sky with wind in my hair, sun on my face and clear blue water and white sand underneath. Pandava beach is one of the best beaches in Bali &amp; the view was spectacular. It was a ride of a lifetime, till I started feeling sick (guess my vertigo problem kicked in ☹️). Overall, it’s a must do in Bali
5) Diving /Snorkelling - I would recommend that you do this on the second day of your trip since you should not be flying for 48 hours after you have done diving ( which is why i could not do diving but snorkelling. Snorkelling at Nusa Dua or Amed are the best in town . This is a small personalised Itinerary that can be followed while you are travelling. For all Bookings , car renting , Bike renting, Snorkelling equipments, Diving Instructors information you can drop me a message. The Hotel is just beautiful and the staff is awesome
We went to this island for diving which has lot of corals , one can even donate & plant a coral. Lot of Blue Sea Stars can be seen here. Spectacular structures underwater. I did my last dive here which was the longest and deepest we went was 15m= 45 feet! My certification course ended here after all my theory, confined pool sessions and skills in the sea! It was a day when my Dream came True! Evening we went for a good dinner to celebrate & enjoy my success!
Day 10: Morning Surf Lessons •Breakfast at the Villa •You can rent a scooter and go shopping or just laze around by the pool at the villa• Evening – Last Supper! •It’s time to sit back and recall all the memories of last 10 days on this trip. •We’ve got BBQ and Beers arranged for you for a mellow closing party of the trip.
My favorite place was Pink Beach. It’s named for the sand, literally pink, caused by red coral washing up and being ground by the constant pressure of the tide and the waves. Snorkeling here was the best I have ever experienced and yet it isn’t even the best in Indonesia. From a cliff above the beach I surveyed our paradise and thought again about life, how glad I was to be alive; how alive I felt being so enveloped in nature, without cares and worries to distract me from the beauty. For as long as we could we bobbed and swam and floated in the beautiful water, appreciating the bounty of life and the gift of another day. None of us know how long we are guaranteed and the blessing of being able to spend a few days living in the Komodo Islands may be one of the greatest I have ever had, one of those experiences after which one tends to say, mostly joking, “I can die happy.”
For me, sunset is the best and most important part of the day, akin to closing the day on a perfect note. The Sunset point at Pantai Berawa seemed to be the best way to end my day in Bali. And as I enjoyed the harmonies of the ocean waters with the medley of the winds, I sipped on a Balinese drink and revered the moments that made my trip to Indonesia so special and memorable.
Gili Meno Beach
The boat rides from Gili Meno may not be rare, but they sure are expensive. The two times you get public ferries to Gili Meno are in the morning at 9 and evening at 4. However, a more swift option is in the many private boats that can take you to Gili Meno in about 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah, if you are lucky. The key is to bargain, or talk to fellow travelers who could share the expenses with you.The Seri resort at Gili Meno is one of island's prime properties with breathtakingly beautiful views and calm blue waters. The resort staff greeted us with a welcome drink and helped us with further information about the island. Thanks to my travel companion Ben, I had the experience of a lifetime in snorkeling, despite not knowing how to swim. Of course, you don't need to know how to swim but a little lesson in doggy paddle can help you explore the underwater amazement with great ease.As the evening came to a close, the seclusion on the island grew deeper with street lights only available next to private properties and local bars/restaurants. However, it was then in the solitude of the seclusion hindered by the constant noise of the waves, that I realized the true meaning of going-further-back-in-time. As planned, I went to bed early (which is 1:00 a.m. island time) to make sure I don't miss the mesmerizing sunrise. And it was, undoubtedly the most beautiful experiences of my life. Sitting in front of orange, pink and golden sky and grey water that quickly turned to blue as the sun rose in its full glory, was an indescribable moment (Recommendation : keep Britt Nicole's track - The sun is rising on your iPod, if you wish to add more soul to the scenic wonders)
Batu Belig Beach
After lazy morning and heavy breakfast we headed to Tanah Lot Temple. Only negative about Bali is that there is huge traffic jam due to narrow roads. Lot of time is wasted in travelling from one place to another. Marked as sea temple, tanah lot offers spectacular views of sea in the evening. Nearby is a small market that offers various balinese cuisines and dresses to pick from. After clicking beautiful pictures and viewing sunset we headed to our next stop Bali Hai Cruise.Travel tip: If you want to go shopping then remember bargaining is allowed in Bali.
Melasti BeachA 15 minutes drive from green bowl takes you to the Melasti beach. You will hardly find tourists here as this beach is famous only among the locals. There are many photo stop overs on the way and you will enjoy this ride. You can almost drive your vehicle on to the beach.
This is a 15th century set of rock carvings, which can be reached on foot from the town, though it is a few kilometres. From the entrance, a long walk down, on sometimes broken steps, there and back is maybe 4kms. During my visit in January 2014 I was surprised by the absence of vendors, also by the lack of other visitors. This is not on the tourist trail.At the end of your mini-trek you will seen a ~50 metre long line of rock carvings on your left. These depict scenes from every day life, in the good old days. The carvings are worn, but clearly discernable. The principal feature is a statue of the Hindu god Ganesh. If you wish, you can make (after buying from a little old lady nearby) an offering here.Near the entrance is a good, small restaurant, the Yeh Pulu Cafe. Owned and managed by an enterprising Balinese woman. Both Yeh Pulu and the restaurant are recommended.
"So this is the place I should have been for the last two months", was my first thought as I wound my way through a sexily curved hill. Padang Bai is a small, annexed fishing village with a little bay, a secret white sand beach (that's the beach's actual name) a few warungs and guest houses and some deep emerald hills directly behind. Despite its' fishy orientation there's a freshness there that is missing in South Bali. It's the lack of bike fumes and rubbish. Most people pass through on their way to get their rocks off on Gilli-T. Big mistake, this place gets my vibe.
Legian Beach adjoins the Kuta Beach and is another popular beach in the Legian Area. The area is bustling with exotic luxury hotels, street shopping, wall art, handicrafts and paintings, local cuisine restaurants and beach wear. Time to tingle your taste buds by trying out some Indonesian Cuisines here.3. Nusa Dua Beach - Breathtaking Coastline
Jimbaran is a small town in South Bali which is 11.4 km from Kuta. The Jimbaran beach area is one of the best areas to explore walking. The beach is calm and best suited for swimming. The south end stretch of the beach is quiet and pleasant. The enchanting hold of this place on you grows stronger at sunset. As the sun lowers, you will be content just gazing at its beauty. Make sure you don’t miss it. You may even treat yourself to a soothing massage at Ayana Spa. Treatments usually include sugar scrubs, body wraps, aroma-therapy and reflexology and these are the ones you should indulge in.
Lot of amazing cafes, restaurants, Bars & night club..!! Fantastic Shopping.. Very lively place in South Bali! While diving I met a girl from Swiss who was working in China. Apparently she became my Diving buddy! After we finished Diving, we planned our trip ahead to Seminyak.. We made more friends enroute.. Friends from Philippines.. We visited Tanah Lot as it is considered to be one of the most beautiful sunset points in Bali! Since it was our last day and we did not know when would we meet next.. We went partying at Potato Head Beach Club! It would be one of the best located clubs with an infinity pool facing the sea! It was just one of the best trips of my life..! I miss Bali..!
