Bali island, probably the most famous part of Indonesia. Everyone knows it from its stunning beaches and luxury resorts. But in fact it’s way more than that.
During my trip along the island I wasn’t looking for white sandy paradise beaches. You can find it in so many destinations while traveling across Asia.
Iljen crater in Java
We came to Bali directly from Ijen crater in Java. There are regular ferries from Java to Bali (Pelabuhan Gilimanuk Ferry Port). Kuta – the south of the island is the most expensive region.
The south west part of Bali is called North Kuta (near Denpasar) and is famous for wide beaches for surfers. Beside the incredible amount of tourists it’s worth visiting this region. It offers a very nice atmosphere and great nightlife.
Accommodation in Bali island
There are hundreds of accommodations in North Kuta, starting from 5$ per night. It’s a busy area with lots of small bars, pubs and discos. You don’t need to book anything in advance, we found rooms in 3 minutes. The rooms were small but comfortable. Worth the price.
Thousands of foreign tourist are working and living there for years.
Surfing adventure in Bali
Surfing is unforgettable. I tried it for the first time in this island. The lesson costs around 15$. I tried it for the first time in Kuta, which offers long surfer shores with big waves. It was an unforgettable experience.
Kuta is a very popular part of island, located north from Bandar Udara Internasional Ngurah Rai. Bali is an exciting island, where every house is a temple. The holy flowers lie everywhere on streets of Bali.
The atmosphere of the island is exeptional and mistique. You can find beautiful rice terraces across the island and extremely nice people. There’s plenty of thing to see – famous Ubud town or Batur volcano. The food is delicious!
