7 Non-Touristy Things To Do In Bali


Posted on

Hey, there travel bugs, this article will explore 10 fun things to do in the beautiful Bali Indonesia. We'll be travelling mostly from central to south of Bali, hitting up areas such as Kuta, Ubud, Uluwatu, and more. Let's begin!

Many tourists tend to flock to the Kuta region of Bali. My advice is to to get out of there as soon as you arrive but not before doing this worthwhile activity.

#1 Bali Sea Turtle Society


Is an organization that protects sea turtles. In addition to data recording and rescue, they relocate sea turtle eggs to a protected hatchery, away from harm.

Ever few days baby sea turtles are hatched and they open it up to volunteers to release them into the ocean. "They wouldn't survive without your help!" "Save the nature! Save the planet! Save the baby turtle!"

You can find the release information on their fb. It's free, donations are welcomed and on a first come first serve basis. Truly such a heartwarming experience to watch your baby sea turtle return home.

#2 Heading to Ubud

One of the favourite regions in Bali, known for its rice paddies and tranquil vibes.

If you're looking to get your hands dirty and have a delicious meal at the same time, take a cooking class! Just go to the Jambangan Cooking Class that took you to a local market to learn about local produce and spices.

"You have oyster mushroom soup...but no magic mushroom." Even can use traditional cooking methods.

#3 Ubud Monkey Forest

If you want to kick it up a notch and get into the wild, head over to Ubud Monkey Forest. A truly breathtaking scenery...and hilarious experience when you meet Bali's wild monkeys. Watch them eat, climb on people's heads, and get a little feisty.

"OH! They also can bite you!"

#4 Bali Yoga

Imagine a place where you can unwind and unplug from your daily stress imagine a place. Where you can detoxify and rejuvenate your mind body and spirit. Imagine a place, where you can balance your hormones boost your immune system decrease your allergies lose weight and return home glowing inside and out this. The place exists is here in goa a natural instinct healing. Try aYoga goa Retreat which will transform your life.

#5 Tirta Empul

The favourite thing in Bali is heading to the Balinese temple Tirta Empul. You can actually get an authentic Balinese experience performing purification ritual at the holy water pools.

There's a right way to do this so be sure to watch the vlog on Tirta Empul. Afterwards, you'll feel refreshed, cleansed, and rejuvenated.

Of all the things to do in Bali, I really recommend this one.

#6 Padang Padang Beach

Bali is all about going to beaches but there are so many flocked with people, umbrellas, and vendors, it is much more fun to get out there explore and find more secretive ones.

We headed somewhere near Padang Padang Beach, to find a super secluded spot. It's a trek to get down to but worth it. You'll be greeted with a shipwreck, soft sand. It's perfect for a day out tanning and swimming without any people around.

Another way is to hang out at a resort, you don't have to stay there.

This one is called Lo Joya. We just bought lunch and had a few juices and it got us access to their private beach. We had this entire area with caves and rock formations all to ourselves. it was heavenly!

#7 Uluwatu Temple

Is one of Bali's best sea temples situated by the cliffs. We love the waves crashing against the cliffs and the magnitude of this temple. It's the perfect place to catch the sunset.

One thing to watch out though, if you thought the Monkey Forest monkeys were naughty, the monkeys here at Uluwatu are even naughtiest. Hold on to your shiny things.

What makes Uluwatu Temple extra special is the Kecak Fire Dance performance held at night. This Balinese dance tells a love story and is performed against a perfect seaside backdrop. Prepare to laugh and be in awe.

Alright you, I hope you got some good ideas of all the things you can do here in Bali.

I cannot wait for you to see this iconic Indonesian paradise.
