It is good to know some areas of Bali, and what to expect from them since every and each one of them is different. So, let’s check out what Bali is all about and where you can find your own personal favourite place.
The Tuban, Kuta and Legian area is the most developed part of Bali and attracts the most visitors. They are very busy and loud and be prepared for action at all times of day and night. In little alleys running through this area, there is a fantastic number of busy restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, and the beach is around the corner. Kuta Beach is a great place to learn to surf, enjoy the sunset, meet new people and have a few cold Bintangs – local beer.
This area is famous for luxury and style. If you want to be close to the heart of things, but enjoy a bit more sophisticated accommodation and surroundings, this is the right place. It has many world-class restaurants, clean, pleasant beaches, and fashionable, funky boutiques that are just amazing. Kids’ clubs and indoor play areas are also available, as are nannies at very reasonable prices.
The place for yoga lovers and all of those valuing spiritual and new things. Ubud has long been the home of choice for artists and free thinkers from around the world and has a large expat community. The centre of Ubud, though focused on meditation, traditional arts, and culture, is lively, with restaurants and shopping options for all ranges, and families can enjoy plenty of activities among the rice fields and rivers in the area.
Calm and quiet, diving point and ideal for families. The peaceful sand beach fronting a quiet section of the Indian Ocean is perfect for water sports of all types.
This merely is surfer’s paradise: Balangan and Dreamland Beach, Padang-Padang Beach, Bingin, Uluwatu… Lovers of beaches, surfing and sun will love it here. Plus you will find some world-class surf breaks on this cliff-lined stretch of coast.
Nature, ocean and diver’s paradise. The tranquil area where you can get away from the hustle and bustle and get some peace. Plus the most amazing sunrises!
