An Alternative Guide to Bali

Bali is stunning, and you know this because you have seen numerous bloggers and influencers posting gorgeous sunsets and tropical cocktails from their endless travels over the last few months.

 

You can see the attraction, and so do the other 10million visitors that flock to Bali.

As well as seeing the usual sights, here are our top 6 places to visit and things to do in Bali, away from the tourist tracks!

 

Visit a secret beach

Possibly not so secret anymore as we have just revealed it (whoops), but this beach will still feel very special!

This beach can be found at Blue Point beach in Ulu Watu and can only be reached when the tide is on the way out, so make sure you know when that is!When you are walking down the steps between the rocks on the way to Blue Point beach, instead of going right, the route everyone else would go, find a small rock passage on your left. Here you will find a little slice of paradise.

 

Make sure you share a photo of this with us!

 

Or a Black Sand beach

Kata beach is a beautiful place to chill out, but it can be a little busy with all the tourists. For a change, head west to Soka Beach. This lovely beach gives you beautiful views of the Indian Ocean and a lot less people.

 

If you like fishing, at this beach you can join some of the local fishermen when they head out!

 

Have a consultation by a traditional healer

Fulfill your ‘Eat, Pray, and Love’ dream and visit a traditional Balinese healer. These healers believe that the way to treat physical and mental illnesses is with natural herb, spices, holistic therapies and ancient wisdom. There are many different types of healers, from palm readings and physical and sound massages.

 

Keep an open mind and you will definitely enjoy yourself.

 

Visit a secret Canyon

Sukawati is not just a secret canon; it is also a sacred one! The canyon can be found near Pura Beji Guwang in Sukawati.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a photographer and want to capture something unique, or simply a lover of nature, this is one you must not miss on a trip to Bali.

Getting to this canyon can be a little challenging as you will need to pass through muddy, sticky rivers, so make sure you are careful.

 

Visit a newly discovered Waterfall

Bali’s stunning waterfalls are well known, and also well visited! Only recently, Tukad Cepung Waterfall was discovered and boy is it amazing. Better yet, not that many know about it!

When visiting this waterfall, you must be aware of the river water levels first. If there has been a lot of rain the levels can rise causing flooding, so make sure you know what is going on before you start to descend the stairs!

 

Take in a view from a high cliff

Clued up photographers are pretty much the only ones who know how special a visit is to Melasti Beach. The are some stunning rock formations around the beach below, and taking a trip up to the top offers stunning views.

 

Bali has an abundance of natural beauty, many of it is undiscovered. These are our top 6 to things to hunt out to make your trip unique, but doing some further research will no doubt uncover much more to see!
