Uluwatu

On one of the 3 days that we spend on the south coast we took a motorbike trip to the most famous beaches around.

Our first stop was in Dreamland – a beautiful beach with white sand and blue water. Really, it looked like one of the pictures that show up if you type “paradise” on google.

Not bad, huh?

The beach was almost empty, because it was a part of Pecatu Indah Resort, which is still under construction. Now there were almost no tourist but in a few years I can imagine the crowds sunbathing in this amazing place. The waves in the sea were too strong to swim, but Kevin had some nice time in there.

We walked a bit, lied in the sun, and enjoyed the view. I felt so happy and good, I have never been in a surrounding like this!

After having fun in the paradise beach we went to visit a big Hindu temple, Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple. The temperature was about 100000⁰C degrees, and we were tired after riding on the motorbike in the sun, but it was worth a visit. The temple is situated on the cliff and surrounded with monkey forest. Monkeys were EVERYWHERE. By the entrance of the temple we already saw many signs like “Be careful with your belongings!” or “Don’t bring any food, monkeys will steal it!”. They were really unafraid of people, just sitting on the main path scratching their butts.

In the temple - 100000 degrees!

The temple was really amazing but we could already feel the effect of the sun on us. It was still early and I felt very tired, but we wanted to visit two more places, so we rushed on.

And then our tyre broke. We were stuck next to the temple, one hour from the place where we stayed, not knowing what to do. Fortunately some workers from the temple helped us and after some time we got a new tyre and could continue.

The next place that we saw was Uluwatu beach. A paradise for surfers! The waves are very big, the wind is strong, and there are many nice cafes to relax after swimming. There we rested for a moment watching all the people in the water trying to get their chance on waves.

We planned to go to Padang-Padang beach as well, but in the competition Sun vs Marysia I lost, and I could only dream about a cold shower and bedroom with air-conditioning.

I got a bit sick after the trip (don’t play with the sun kids) but it was really cool to see all those places. I remember how I was ‘preparing’ for our trip and looking at pretty pictures of Bali on the Internet and this day I was there!
