A Fabulous Day To The Bukit

The spectacular views from Pura Luhur Uluwatu

The spectacular views from Pura Luhur Uluwatu

This tour is taking you to have more exciting excursions to The Bukit and Tanjung Benoa region. It is  the dramatic, craggy coastline that fuels the local economy, surfers more challenging breaks particularly those at Uluwatu, and Padang Padang. Tanjung Benoa, a famous place to do the marine water sports, and don’t confuse with Benoa (southern Sanur). Despite the shared name, there’s just over a kilometer of sea between the harbor and the northern tip of the Tanjung Benoa peninsula.

Jimbaran is famous throughout Bali for its fish and every morning at dawn the fishermen return with hundreds of kilos of sardines, tuna, mackerel, snapper and sometimes baby sharks. The fresh fish barbecues served up by Jimbaran’s beachfront warung are so good that people travel here from Kuta, Nusa Dua and Sanur just to sample them. The set is similar in every one, with chairs and tables set out on the sand and a menu that sells the day’s catch, grilled over smoky fires of coconut husks.

Padang Padang, Uluwatu. It is a famous beach after the actress Julia Roberts playing in a film “Eat, Pray And Love”. Make your self enjoy the corals and white sand beach around for a couple hours.

One of Bali’s holiest and most important temples, Pura Luhur Uluwatu commands a superb position on the tip of a sheer rocky promontory jutting out over the Indian Ocean, Views over the serrated coastline to left and right are stunning. This is a favorite spot at sunset (a pink and orange horizon). The temple structure itself, though, lacks magnificence, being relatively small and for the most part unadorned. Now sanctified as one of Bali’s sacred directional temple, state temples having influence over all the people of Bali. It is the guardian of the southwest and is dedicated to the spirits of the sea.
