The island of Bali is like a goblet that tapers and suddenly widens at the lower extreme. Most of the tourist infrastructures of Bali are found here and around the southernmost district. The most traveller-friendly beaches are found in the towns like Seminyak, Kuta, Legian, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa.
Surf, Party and Sunbath on South Bali’s Beaches
The surf schools along Kuta Beach are the most popular among the tourist which is both good and bad considering the number of people come here. The beach resorts are present on both coasts and plenty of backpackers arrive at the place along with family travellers and both contribute well to the party like the environment of the district. The local beaches in South Bali are great for 24-hour fun.
The broad strip of sand at Kuta Beach that faces the Indian Ocean, allows so much room for surfers, sunbathers and the vendors who are always around without fail.
Bali’s Holiest Mountain in East Bali
If you want a break for the party scenes of the south of Bali, then the eastern coast is a pleasant treat. The tourists are spared from big crowd numbers with an exception of “Mother Temple” on the slopes of Gunung Agung. At two hour drive from south Bali, people can find treasures like rainforests, rice fields, mountains, volcanic sand beaches and temples that are just an hour drive away from each other.
You can do diving & Snorkelling around East Bali’s Beaches
Take a breather away from the overpopulated beaches of the south with the black, volcanic sand beaches around east. These are much quieter and wilder than its other counterparts. The dive sites are amazing with slopes that are sandy, wrecks and drop-offs are accessible easily from Candidasa or Amed from south and north respectively.
You will enjoy East Bali beaches if you are an underwater photographer or a wreck diver or just a rookie enjoying the water.
Ubud & Central Bali: Shrine to Bali Culture
Ubud has an elevated inland location in Center of Bali which is precisely the reason it is far away from the reach of hard partying surfers and also it is a great place to experience Bali’s rich culture and the heritage. The relaxed vibes of Ubud are probably because of the lush green countryside that is covered with rice fields and a number of rivers that divides them into sections. Having said that, the modern world is catching up with Ubud fast as you can find Starbuck there as well. This town has plenty of temples, art museums, performances reminding of the rich tradition to the tourists from all over the world.
