Start your Bali tour with a visit to a remote beach club on the dramatic Batubelig beach in northern Seminyak, where massive walls of waves roll in when the surf is high. Our destination has no sealed road access, so you’ll ride across the back of the beach to reach our first stop, where the menu is French-Balinese fusion and the drinks are pure tropical indulgence. We recommend the Delinger: think vodka, strawberries, and ginger sorbet. Oh yes.
Sufficiently hydrated, you’ll travel through some of the area’s nearby beach villages as you head toward the stunning 17th-century temple of Pura Batu Ngaus, a fertility temple perched on a rock in the ocean. The Balinese come here to seek medicine or fertility blessings from the mangku, or priest, and leave offerings in a most unusual way: in a blowhole in the rock that connects to the ocean via an underwater cave. This temple is far off the tourist track, feeling a world away from the crowds that swarm Bali’s more famous sites. Along the way to Pura Batu Ngaus, you’ll pass scenes of government-protected rice terraces and catch glimpses of the sea and the far-off cliffs of Uluwatu — keep your camera close by for those classic Bali shots!
Thirsty again? And hungry? Good! Because up next, your Bali tour will take you to a restaurant and bar set on 6,000 square metres of lawn, overlooking the ocean. You’ll enjoy tapas and sangria at this gorgeous setting that’s part of a boutique art hotel dedicated to maintaining Balinese traditions. Sip one of three amazing sangria varieties (or try all three — we won’t judge!) while lazing about in the late afternoon sun.
Next, we leave the northern beaches behind and head south, passing by rice fields and through small streets crammed with antiques and collectibles. We cross to what was once another island, now home to a fishing village and the largest seafood market in Bali, where fishermen hunt for squid in the deep waters of the Indian Ocean. You’ll stop to watch the sunset in Jimbaran Bay, at what is possibly Bali’s best beach club. The cocktail menu here is almost as spectacular as the Bali sunset — try a vanilla margarita, Foxtrot Gimlet, or frozen apple martini.
Finish your Bali tour with a nightcap at the iconic Ku De Ta bar at Seminyak Beach, a long-standing hot spot that’s considered to be one of the best beach clubs in Southeast Asia. We recommend the espresso martini — perfect for revving you up for a night out on the town after your tour ends!
