Tanah Lot

located in the Tabanan regency about an hour’s drive from Kuta you will find Tanah Lot which is one of Bali’s most important land marks and one of the most visited and photographed sea temples in Bali.

Claimed to be the work of the 16th century, Tanah lot (Tanah Lot means “Land [in the] Sea” in the Balinese language) is a temple which sits on a large offshore rock which has been shaped over the years by the ocean tide.

Here you will find a picture perfect sunset, an array of market stalls, restaurants and in low tide you can walk out to the temple where you can be blessed by the holy water.

A must see when in Bali and suitable for families of all ages.

Bedugul

A mountainous area located in the Tabanan regency offering a cooler climate and beautiful views. In Bedugul you will find the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan water temple and the Bali Botanic Garden.

The botanic gardens opened in 1959, located on some 155+ hectares of land and showcasing some 17,000 plants.This is the largest botanic garden in Indonesia.

Pura Ulun Danu Bratan is another of Bali’s famous temples on water located at Lake Bratan..Ulun Danu Temple was built in the 17th century to honor Dewi Danu, the water goddess who ensures there is always enough water for farmers to grow the all-important rice.

In this regency you can also enjoy activities such strawberry picking, cannoning, water sports and Bali tree tops.

A great day out for the whole family and suitable for all ages.

Tegalalang

One of the main tourist attractions located in the north of Ubud, this is a must visit. Here you will find beautiful scenes of layered rice terraces which can be photographed from all angles.

We would recommend trekking down the path to the bottom to experience firsthand the beauty of what’s on offer.

Our advice is get there early as crowds tend to gather in the afternoons. Be prepared for street vendors and if buying there are no set prices.

Whilst this is a nice place to visit for families, if considering hiking through the terraces you would not be able to take a baby stroller.

 

Uluwatu

Located on the south-western tip of the Bukit Peninsula of Bali, Indonesia. It is home to the Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple.

The name Uluwatu comes from ulu, meaning ‘lands end’, and watu, meaning ‘rock.

This temple also shares the splendid sunset backdrops as that of Tanah Lot Temple, another important sea temple located in the island’s western shores.

Whilst the ocean views are stunning beware of the monkeys and secure your personal belongings.

Here you can also watch the traditional Kecak fire dance for sunset. Arrive early to secure a seat.
