This will be an incredible day, a day when you get to visit the island's best beaches, swim and relax in sun's rays. After this tour you will know for sure which one of Bali's beaches is your favorite. Let's go!
Pandawa beach — has snow white sand, and it is hidden from sight by limestone cliffs. Coral reefs keep away sea heave. It stretches for a kilometer or so and there are numerous cafes and souvenir shops around it. The beach itself has lounger chairs and water attractions.
Melasti beach — is among the island's most mysterious place. It is bordered by tall rocks, and the picturesque serpentine road to the surfline is hewn in living rock. Down below it is always pleasantly shady, but the sea is usually rough. Nonetheless, it is one of the top 10 beaches of the island. There is no "infrastructure" at this wild beach, but the scenery is so attractive that amateur photographers from all over Bali flock to the spot.
Dreamland beach — smallish among limestone dunes. It has fine yellow sand and always strong waves, which have made it popular among surfers, but few people like to swim here. There are some services here, including a surfboard rental.
Padang padang beach — is tiny but propelled to fame by the movie "Eat, Pray, Love," some scenes of which were shot here. The beach extends for only a hundred meters, it is located in a cove with calm sea and golden sand. Sun shades can be rented.
After sampling Bali's best beaches we will travel to Uluwatu – a holy place, one of the six most sacred spots on Bali. The temple crowns a 90-m tall cliff, and those who climb there can observe the entire island, the sea and the cliffs on every side. People often come here for the sunsets, which are among the most beautiful in the world. As the enormous sun sinks into the Indian Ocean, waves breaking against the cliffs, the scene becomes imprinted in one's mind for much longer than the time spent on the island.
When the sun is quite low and twilight descends, we will head out to watch the ritual dance Kechak, performed by about 150 dancers. Singing and gesturing, they reenact Rama's battle with the malicious Ravana from the famous "Ramayana." The dance harks back to ancient ritual trances and is a thrilling sight even today.
Tour option 2: any two beaches, Uluwatu temple and the Jimbaran fish market (sunset).
Tourists who choose the second version of the tour will end the day at the Jimbaran fish market. It opens early and closes late, and a bewildering variety of fish and sea food from the island's seas are sold here. The market is pleasant to visit at sunset time, when one can walk along fish stalls undisturbed and pick the food for dinner. It will be grilled while you watch, and you will be able to consume it at your own pace in a candle-lit restaurant on the oceanic shore – a fine conclusion for a busy day!
