Its amazing, the view is wonderful.. if you looking for surfing, this is the right place, private beach. You have to go down dozens of stairs to get to this private beach..

Around 300+ staircase down..but its worth it! Very scenic, though those who don't know swimming can't go out that cave like area. Make sure bring view stuff like drinks, towel/mat. Good to spend 1-2 hours.

If you can handle the climb back up the stairs, it is well worth the visit. Popular with surfers there are enough swimming spots amongst the reef. Be careful of the monkeys in the top car park, they will take everything

If you like high tides and surfing, the best time is in the evening. If you would like to sit and take some good pics that best time if during morning and afternoon.

First go at 2-week itinerary, Feb/March. Advice v. welcome! (12 Replies)
Hi everyone - first time, solo traveller to Bali here. I’d really appreciate some advice from more seasoned travellers/Bali residents before finalising my itinerary for 24 Feb - 10 March. I'm looking primarily for relaxation along with culture/adventure, where possible. I also absolutely love plants and wildlife. I'm thinking snorkelling, treks/walks, cycling, museums, temples, yoga, spas & reading on the beach at the first hint of sun. Budget-wise, I'm happy to dip into my savings...More

First all, welcome to the TA forums and esp the Bali forum. I am really just based in Ubud so won't refer to much of the other places, but you can do so much more than just the places in the downtown area. which is what you have picked out. Most people visiting Ubud end up going out for sightseeing trips and not just in the center of Ubud..so perhaps one day go to Bedugul and do a nice trip to see the Botanical Garden, spice market, temple in the lake, Jatiluwih, Munduk etc etc. Another...More

I think you need to look at a map. There are a lot of things that simply don't make sense. For instance, June 11: Tirta Gangga and Tanah Lot are in opposite directions on opposite coasts. June 13: Goa Lawah (bat cave) is on the east coast, did you mean Goa Gajah (elephant cave)? Even so, it still looks like a packed day considering you are also changing hotels. June 14: You're kind of backtracking to some fairly touristy villages. June 15: You're leaving Ubud to head north, but...More
