Amazing Bali’s Southern Peninsula – The best of Bali’s beaches

Indonesia’s favourite island has everything you could want from a beach holiday. Bali family resort properties sit right on the beach, watersports of every description are readily available, beachfront bars and nightclubs make up a vibrant after dark party scene and there is shopping to suit every budget.

North of the peninsula you will find Kuta, which was a key trading hub in Dutch colonial times but is now one of the best-known party beaches in Bali today, with clubs, bars and hotels like Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali and several others, lining the beachfront. Here you will also find New Kuta Green Park, a family style water park, an eighteen hole golf course and Ngurah Rai Airport.

Bali’s Southern Peninsular, also known as the Bukit Peninsular, is known for its fabulous beaches that draw surfers from around the world. Explore the hundred-metre-long Padang Padang Beach, which was one of the locations used for filming the movie adaptation of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. Like many of the beaches on the peninsular, Padang Padang is ideal for surfing. Uluwatu Temple is an iconic feature and it sits on a rock overlooking this beach. Jimbaran Beach is home to several surf schools. Serious surfers make their way to this beach, along with those looking for the best seafood. A favourite attraction of Jimbaran Bay is the cluster of seafood shops at the water’s edge. Barbequed seafood oozing with local flavours is best washed down with ice cold beer. Jimbaran was once a fishing village and has a traditional fish market which still opens for business every day at dawn. The Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park, site of the giant statue of Garuda Wisnu, is another major tourist attraction. The park is located on a limestone hillside three hundred metres above the peninsula and offers scenic views of Jimbaran Bay, Kuta, Tanjung Benoa and Sanur.
