Hi my BFAW babes, Dylan here! You may or may not know this, but I’m currently on day 8 of my trip in Bali. The first three days here we spent in Uluwatu and fell in love with the stunning cliffs and beaches.
I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite places in Uluwatu with this mini guide of how you could easily spend a day (or two) in this beachy village!
Where to stay: We stayed at Uluwatu Surf Villas and it was amazing. Each of the villas are completely unique, the grounds are beautiful, and they even have the best morning yoga in town!
Where to eat: Mana at the reception of Uluwatu Surf Villas was delicious. We had breakfast there every morning and dinner one night and it never disappointed. The Dawn Patrol smoothie and Mana pancakes were breakfast favorites!
La Baracca was our other favorite place to eat. The menu is Italian inspired, we ordered pasta and the homemade noodles were some of the best we’ve ever had!
Beaches to see: Suluban beach was right in front of our hotel so we went their first and the walk down from the side of the cliff had the best views of the ocean. The beach also has so many cool (*cool if you’re from FL) boulders to take pictures near.
The second beach we went to was Padang Padang beach. This beach has monkeys that live on it, so obviously it was a must visit. Disclaimer- make sure to not leave any shiny objects such as cameras or food visible when enjoying the water because the monkeys will steal them!
Beach club to visit: We hung out at Ulu Cliff House for a few hours and we can’t complain. The service was great the daybeds were comfy, the music was good, and the food was delicious. The whole place is actually huge and they have a staircase that leads down to the beach.
Cultural activities: We went to Uluwatu temple at sunset and it was beautiful. It gets crowded at that time so make sure you go early for a good spot. The temple also has a traditional Kecak dance every night that you can buy tickets to see. Unfortunately we didn’t get there in time to buy tickets, but we were told to get there at 6 PM next time in order to be able to get them in time!
Hope this inspires you to visit Uluwatu, we’ll definitely be back!
