You may have visited Bali’s incredible temples and practiced your sun salute overlooking the endless ocean, but a visit to Bali is not over until you’ve tried the food.
Bali is a foodie’s paradise, and there’s so many incredible dishes to try, but a true Balinese staple is Nasi Goreng. This comforting fried rice dish can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with chicken, prawns, beef, spring onions, anything! It always comes with a fried egg on top and it's always delicious, whether you enjoy it in a 5-star restaurant or a food stall in a night market.
It’s almost impossible to separate Bali from it’s wellbeing-focused culture, and yoga plays such a huge part of the spirituality that makes this destination so special.
Whether you’re a self-confessed yogi or you’ll be hitting the mat for the first time, a visit to Bali is simply incomplete without at least one yoga class, but you’ll definitely be hooked after that first venture. Ubud’s gorgeous leafy interiors and Uluwatu’s pristine coastlines provide the perfect backdrop for a sunrise yoga session or an evening meditation session under the stars, book a class to see why it’s better in Bali.
Whether you love surfing or are hoping to hop onto a board for the first time, Uluwatu is a great place to hit the waves.
Uluwatu’s stylish shores are known for not only their golden sands, but also for the constant rolling waves that make it a great destination for water sports such as surfing. For the best places to catch a wave, have a look into visiting Padang Padang Beach, Suluban Beach and Balangan Beach!
It’s not all about surfing in Uluwatu though, if you’re looking for the perfect place to soak up the sun, watch the world float by and maybe even go for a swim, there’s still some great beaches to choose from.
Pandawa Beach is Bali’s most southern beach, and boasts a kilometre of white sand and waters that are little bit calmer than that of the more popular beaches, making it a much better destination for swimming and gentle water sports. Another great option is Dreamland Beach, which promises bright blue waters and plenty of enough golden sands for everyone!
