The Bukit and Uluwatu
The majestic Uluwatu Temple gazes out across the Indian Ocean, protected by sea snakes that slither in the cove below. Bukit West and Uluwatu offer an unrivalled element of magic and mystery that captivates every imagination.
This Island of the Gods will welcome you with its wild beaches, indigenous nature and warm local energy. A place where the past and the present fuse seamlessly together, you can still see the rich cultural heritage as you lounge back in luxury.
The ocean sweeps beneath staggering lime stone cliffs, the sands are soft and invite you to sink down and relax under an endless blue sky. Bukit West hosts some of Bali’s most magnificent beaches and the waves of Uluwatu ride in with a powerful force that makes for epic viewing. Some of the beaches in the area are swimming with the lively activity of traveling surfers and holidaymakers, whilst others are serene and rarely visited.
Uluwatu specializes in handmade Balinese lace; you can find plenty of stunning little shops selling the exquisite lace souvenirs. There are plenty of touristy boutiques selling Indonesian crafts en route to the temple alongside stalls for snacks and drinks. For larger shopping opportunities Bukit West is rather limited, it is better suited for escaping the hum drum of modern life and soaking up the rural beach culture.
The sounds of drunken revelers and endless parties won’t be a problem in Bukit West, nightlife is limited, and after dark you can only hear the sounds of nature and crashing surf. It’s an ideal location for watching the stars come out and relaxing on the beach with a cold beer in hand. Some establishments offer calm and quiet bars with cocktails to match the sunset. For a livelier scene you should consider making the journey to the larger towns of Kuta and Seminyak.
This humble backwater of Bali has yet to suffer at the hands of large development. Now it is still a serene and dreamlike experience set between the stretch of ocean and the rocky cliffs. With plenty of natural and cultural wonder on offer, Bukit West is the place to indulge in the hidden side of Bali.
