How to spend a day in Uluwatu

During our trip in Bali, we hadn’t planned on visiting Uluwatu, however the boats were cancelled to the Gilli Islands due to the bad weather therefore we spent a couple of days on Bali’s southcoast. Also so many people said the beaches here were better than Seminyak & Canguu. We travelled from Ubud in which we pre-booked with a private driver, it took around 1hr 1/2 and cost 500,000 IDR.

Uluwatu attracts surfers from all over the world as it has a number of beaches, perfect for surfing. Although the beaches are beautiful and great for surfing, not all of them are ideal for swimming. If you want to relax, eat some delicious food and watch sunset at a beach club, Uluwatu is the place for just that. We hired a moped from the place we were staying, it’s the easiest and quickest way to get around, as Uluwatu is quite spread out. You can get around using bluebird taxi’s ,they didn’t seem as accessible as Seminyak, however I’m sure you would be able to book them from where you were staying.

The ultimate day in Uluwatu would be to head to Suka Espresso. I was recommended to go here and it was everything I could have wanted from a brunch cafe. The food & coffee is delish (the avocado on toast is unreal) and it’s all so ‘grammable’. I suggest getting here early as it does get quite busy.

We headed to Ulu Cliffhouse beach club where we spent the day relaxing near the swimming pool and beach. It sits high up on the hill and offers the most incredible views. Make sure you stay to watch sunset, it’s beautiful. I can see why this place is popular, it was a lovely spot. This place is worth a visit if you’re in Uluwatu.

They have a great choice of cocktails and a long list of food options. We enjoyed dinner here and sat on the tables situated in the corner where it felt like you were in a tree house lounge. Highlight of the dinner was the red snapper, truly delicious!

We had such a wonderful time Uluwatu and I’m so pleased we came to this part of Bali. We spent longer here than we anticipated as it’s a pretty special place.

Have any you guys visited Uluwatu before?
