Alternatively, those looking to soak up the sun and sea without any arduous surfing can explore the gorgeous coastlines, whether that involves sunbathing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or simply delighting in sumptuous culinary offerings at the beachside shacks and restaurants.
Always bustling with energy, some of the most popular beaches of Uluwatu include Suluban Beach which descends down the cliffside with tons of awesome bars, and Padang Padang Beach, a well-loved, family-friendly coast with clear, aqua waters and golden sand.
Watching the sun go down during golden hour is a rite of passage in Uluwatu and the breath-taking sunsets will forever be etched in your memory. Kick back with a sundowner or have your toes in the sand; it will be magical either way.
