If you want to experience the slower pace of life in Uluwatu why not spend a couple of days up here?
Uluwatu is an incredible place located on the southern tip of Bali in the Bukit Peninsula. It’s about a 1-hour drive from the airport which makes it the perfect location for those holidaymakers looking for an alternative to the busy Seminyak & Kuta areas. Uluwatu stretches all the way from Suluban beach with its famous surf spot at Uluwatu Temple all the way through to Padang Padang, Bingin, Impossibles and Dreamlands. All these areas have their own unique culture and buzz but one thing for certain, it’s all about the beach, the surf and the dramatic ocean views. Whether you’re with family, a group of your best girlfriends for a week away, a 50th birthday bash or just here with your mates for a week’s surfing holiday, Uluwatu is the ultimate seaside area where you can get sand between your toes, party hard or just completely chill out.
Why you are going to love Uluwatu
It’s got a completely different vibe from the frenetic pace of Legian, Canggu and Seminyak. It’s extremely laid back and it’s the type of place where time seems to slip by. Mornings melt into the afternoon and before you know it, it’s sunset drinks on your balcony overlooking the ocean. It is really very quiet, tranquil and the focus is all about the beach & surf.
Amazing surf beaches
If you are into surfing, then Uluwatu is the holy grail. It’s a world-class surf break that keeps surfers from all over the world coming back time and time again. It’s literally that GOOD!. If you are more of a beginner then beaches like Balangan and Bingin are close by and are great for learners to hone their skills before they hit the reefs of Uluwatu.
Perfect yoga spot
If you are into Yoga retreats, Uluwatu sets the tone for lots of yoga sessions. After a surf, there’s nothing better than hitting the yoga studios for some much-needed stretching and deep breathing.
Great cafe culture
There are some great new cafes and restaurants that have recently opened up adding that cosmopolitan & eclectic feel to the area. There are dozens of cool health style cafes that have also opened up and are all dotted along the main road ( Jalan Raya Uluwatu) from the turnoff to Balangan all the way to Uluwatu. Names like The Loft, The Cashew Tree, Drifter Surf, Kellys Warung, Gooseberry Cafe & Boutique, the famous Bali Buda, Suka Espresso & Coco & Poke are all amazing cafes where you can log into their wifi and spend hours sitting back while enjoying their healthy food and people watching.
