Candidasa

Candidasa is on the East Coast of the island and has had problems with beach erosion, meaning there is a noticeable lack of beach. If you’re looking to sunbathe on the beach then we suggest you try Pandangbai, but if you enjoy the pool then there are a number of luxury hotels here. This small […]

Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot is a temple on the West Coast past Canggu, and is one of the most photographed spots on the island. It has reached iconic status because of its dramatic location on the ocean. Whilst the postcards may look beautiful, you certainly won’t be the only one visiting. Tanah Lot attracts hundreds of tourists […]

Amed

Many people ask where the best place to go snorkelling is on the island of Bali. Due to the fact that Bali is a major surfing destination, most of the beaches on the island have too many waves for snorkelling. Amed, however, is the ideal spot. This fishing village lies on a remote part of […]

Sanur

Lying on the south-eastern coast, Sanur offers sun sea and sand, but these days it can feel a little far out of the action and out on a limb. Still, it’s a quieter backpacker alternative to Kuta, with easy access to the surf spots on the East Coast. If you’re staying in Sanur you’re also […]

Canggu

With expats spilling out of Kuta and Seminyak, Canggu is the next hot destination in Bali. Canggu is still quite quiet and rural, but a few new resort and property developments mean that the area is quickly catching up with Seminyak as the place for the ‘in-crowd’. Canngu’s beach, called Echo Beach, is a windswept […]

Lovina is actually a bunch of several villages strung alongside a long narrow stretch of volcanic black sand beach. The villages are called Pemaron, Tukadmungga, Anturan, Banyualit, Kalibukbuk, Kaliasem and Temukus. It is much quieter than the south […]

Nusa Dua is a man-made complex built on the south-east of the island on the Bukit Peninsula. It’s the toytown of Bali, with five star luxury hotels and conference centres, as well as a number of international restaurants, a golf course, a supermarket, and perfectly manicured gardens. The best way to describe it is like […]

Jimbaran

Jimbaran is a seaside resort just south of the Airport and is located on the neck that connects the main part of Bali with that little blob on the end (otherwise known as the Bukit Peninsula). Jimbaran isn’t as developed as some of the other tourist spots, but it still has its fair share of […]

Balangan

Balangan is one of the lesser known beaches but one of the nicest. Balangan is located in the south of the island before Bingin, and is the most ‘European’ looking of all the beaches. By this we mean it has a nice stretch of soft, gently shelving sand and is lined with palm trees. You […]

Padangbai

Padangbai is a sleepy fishing village on the East Coast of Bali. Far away from the hustle and bustle of the west coast, Padangbai feels a million worlds away. It is a small village, with a few homestays and guest houses close to the harbour. Most backpackers come to Padangbai simply to catch the ferry […]
