The day after new year’s eve, we went to Dreamland beach, Uluwatu, high on the southernmost of peninsula of the island. It was a precious discovery less than a decade ago, but now it’s too crowded (or maybe because it was January 1st where everyone was vacationing in Bali just like we were), and the beautiful beach view is somewhat ruined by the building constructions in progress.
These are also quite known beaches for surfing. Uluwatu beach is only about 3 km away from Dreamland. Padangpadang and Bluepoint bays are near there as well, but it’s kinda confusing where to take right and left turns. If you’re not going with a local, I think you better ask direction to local people that you see on the streets.
This beach is most known for its seafood diners that light up the area each night. Rows of restaurants and tables on the beach lit by torches really make this area alive.
