Bali beyond the beach.
People flock to Bali for the beaches and it’s easy to see why. The white sandy shores of Nusa Dua, Kuta and Sanur in the south serve up a classic tropical atmosphere. Imagine lying back with the sun overhead and the ocean in front of you as local vendors wander the beach selling fresh pineapple.
To the north and west you’ll find the black volcanic sands of Lovina and Medewi Beach, both excellent locations if you’re looking for an exotic alternative or chasing waves.
Potato Head in stylish Seminyak is a family-friendly hangout by day and a party palace by night with a pool, lawn area and three restaurants. It’s renowned as one of the top places to see the sun set so get in early, settle in and watch the day fade away.
More prime beachside real estate can be found in Ungasan at the southern tip of Bali, where Karma Beach Bali sits at the bottom of a limestone cliff. Take the stairs or ride the inclined cable car down to the secluded beach where you can relax on the bamboo deck with a drink, grab a bite to eat, or make the most of the water sports on offer.
