This place is the absolute epitome of beauty. I dont mind settling down at this place, marry a local and grow a farm. Heh.
Basically we decided to spend a night in Uluwatu after googling the many beaches around Uluwatu. There are few beaches that caught our eyes, namely Suluban, Padang-padang and Dreamland. You can google the pictures of these beaches and yes, all of them are very nice. Mainly for advanced surfers, as the waves can get very high therefore very dangerous for novice surfers.
Anyways I booked Bali Bule Homestay for Rp. 350k. No doubt the most expensive, but the nicest place that we stayed in Bali. Uluwatu is a huge place, obviously there are other homestays and guesthouses around the area. However not many are listed on the internet, and due to its seclusion, we had doubts on whether we were able to get a room for the night had we not place any booking. That explains why we booked Bali Bule Homestay. Nevertheless we were happy with this place, huge room (able to fit 4 pax), clean toilet, comfy bed, and of course, a swimming pool 🙂 It is also a walking distance to Suluban beach.
Sunrise was pretty early in Uluwatu..as early as 5am. We woke up real early and headed to the beach at about 7am. Apparently the people there were also early risers, especially the surfers aiming to catch the big waves. To get to the beach we had to ask the locals along the way. To get there we had to climb down the steep stairs alongside cafes and bungalows. It was truly a different experience for us. We spent approx. 2 hours swimming the natural ‘pool’ at the beach. By the time more and more surfers started coming and wading the water waiting to hit the waves. The waves started to appear around 8ish..and it was really fun watching those guys (even few kids!) surfing. Maybe soon we’ll learn to surf..perhaps perhaps 😀
