Paradise of Bali

by Annika Elaine Breinfalk  from Germany

Bali, Balangan Beach by Annika Elaine Breinfalk
Once you find yourself in Bali the first thing I want to say to you is: Congratulations! You made it to paradise and Bali is a paradise for many reasons. It offers white sandy beaches, lusciously green rice fields, old mystical Hindu temples, an enormous variety of colourful fruits, vegetables and plants, beautiful spas to indulge in, the most friendly people in the world, fantastic beach clubs, great waves to surf on… just to mention a few.
To get the best out of your journey I suggest a roundtrip. Bali is just a small island, so it is easy heading from one destination to another. It will take you max. 3 hours. So let us begin our journey in Uluwatu. Why? What is famous about Uluwatu?
Bali, single fin by Annika Elaine Breinfalk
Uluwatu is surrounded by high cliffs and beautiful white sandy beaches. It is also called the ‘Surfer’s Paradise’ as you will see lots of more or less professional surfers catching the big waves over here. Uluwatu is a quite relaxing place. You can also find one of the most famous temples in Bali in this area. It is called ‘Uluwatu Temple’ which is located along the cliffside and also known as the ’Water Temple’. During sunset time you can watch the most famous dance in Bali called ‘Kecak Dance’ in this temple.
If you are a healthy food lover you should not miss the following places (great for vegans as well):
  • Nalu Bowls ( located next to Single Fin on Blue Point Beach)
  • Bukit Café
  • Smoothie Shop
  • Cashew Tree

If you want to explore beautiful beaches in this area, check out the following ones:
  • Blue Point Beach
  • Dreamland Beach
  • Balangan Beach
  • Padang Padang Beach
  • Green Bowl Beach
If you like to hang out in nice locations with brilliant views, make sure to visit the following places:
  • Single Fin: is a surfer’s bar, which is located on a cliff and offers the most breathtaking view I have ever seen. It is a chilled place with good music. You can watch the sunset while having drinks and food.
  • El Kabron: is a more elegant and pricy place. The design of this restaurant is more luxurious. They offer an infinity pool and balconies which hang on the cliffside. This is amazing!
After exploring all these beaches, you might feel like getting more into the real Bali with all its famous rice paddies and the rainforest, huts made out of bamboo and temples everywhere. So let us move to our next destination which is called Ubud.
Bali, Besakih Temple by Annika Elaine Breinfalk
Ubud is the center of Bali – you may call it the cultural heart. It is all about artwork, massages, yoga, spirituality, nature and food. If you are interested in the Hindu culture and religion you should have a look at the famous ‘Mother Temple, also known as ‘Besakih Temple’. This temple is huge and impressive.
If you are an active person, climbing the active volcano Mt. Batur by night to see the sunrise from above, possibly could be the right choice for you. The view you get from over there is overwhelming. Or why not do a cycling tour through the rice paddies? You want to feel a little like Julia Roberts in ‘Eat, Pray, Love’? Then do the Campuhan Ridge Walk. It is so relaxing and peaceful.
However if you feel like not doing sports at all, then try one of those great massages which are so cheap. Moreover, do not miss the famous Tegalalang Rice Terraces and take a look at the Monkey Forest. Please make also sure that you drop by one of the stunning waterfalls in Bali. Try the Nung Nung waterfall, which is a very peaceful place or go for the Tegenungan Waterfall, which might be quite touristy from time to time but also very pretty.

Other cultural spots in Ubud are for example:
  • Gunung Kawi ( massive funerary complex for a king and his queens)
  • Goa Gajah (also known as the Elephant Cave)
  • Ubud Market (you can bargain clothes, herbs etc.)
  • Pura Tirta Empul (holy spring water temple)
If you like healthy food, go check out (great for vegans as well):
  • The Elephant (peaceful place overlooking the rain forest)
  • Sari Organik (hidden in the rice paddies with an amazing view)
  • Café Pomegranate (enjoy your food in a big comfy tent overlooking the rice paddies)
  • Clear Café (nice colourful place with flowers everywhere overlooking the rain forest while being barefoot)

Have you ever thought of swimming in an infinity pool while overlooking the rain forest? Yes? Then you should definitely check out Jungle Fish!.
If you have more time in Bali, there are a lot more places to explore: Canggu, Kuta and Seminyak, East and North of Bali
One thing I will promise to you, I will always come back to this paradise.
