Travel Guide: Uluwatu, Bali

Uluwatu, a surfer’s paradise and home to Bali’s most luxurious hotels.

Getting Around: Everything is pretty spread out here so I would recommend renting a motorbike to get around or hiring a car for the day. If you’re not comfortable on a moped a car can take you everywhere you’ll want to go. I wouldn’t recommend getting a one way ride anywhere as it can be almost impossible to get a cab again (most destinations are pretty remote.)

Where to stay:

Many of these locations won’t show up on hotel booking sites like so I recommend going directly to their websites to book. Make sure to do so far in advance as they tend to book up. The Temple Lodge does fantastic food and a great massage (you don’t have to be a guest.)

What To Do:

  • Go down to Greenbowl to watch surfing
  • Dreamland Beach
  • Bingin Beach

Where to Eat:

  • Food/Drinks:
    • Rock Bar at Ayana Resort (expensive but a beautiful spot for sunset)
    • El Kabron Restaurant & Cliff Club
    • Single Fin on a Sunday (there’s a place next door that’s really cheap, great spot to get a Bintang and watch the sunset from the roof, just be careful of the monkeys!) I could honestly spend a whole day here watching the surfers and drinking at Single Fin into the night.

    • Cashew Tree
    • Outside Corner Organic Café
    • Suka Espresso
    • The Temple Lodge
    • The Poke Bowl place next to Single Fin is a great lunch spot!
