Which Area of Bali is Right for You?

Bali is an Indonesian Island located just east of Java. It was initially a surfer's paradise, and now it is a popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia. This ancient island is now a mix of tourist areas and traditional culture. There are many different ways to experience Bali, depending on what you want to get out of your trip.

The Different Areas Of Bali

The different areas of Bali will appeal to different people depending on the type of trip

that they are planning.

Southern, Central, Eastern, and Western Bali all have their own personalities and

beauties for those who decide to visit.


Southern Bali

The southern coast of Bali is the tourist mecca of the island.

This area of the island is where you will find the tourist hotels, lively nightlife, and the best bars.

Several cities in southern Bali offer excellent opportunities for tourists seeking a fulfilling experience.

  • Canggu - As one of the more laid-back towns in this region, it has the type of "surfer" vibe you would find in places like Venice Beach, California, and Bondi Beach in Sydney. This is where digital nomads and entrepreneurs choose to live so that they can enjoy artisan beers and organic restaurants.

  • Seminyak - This town in southern Bali has major resort hotels, high-end villas, and the hippest beach bars. If you are looking for a modern-day vacation in Southeast Asia, this is the area for you.

  • Jimbaran - This town is dotted with white-sand beaches and 5-star resorts. It is a great place for kids because many of the beaches in Bali have rough seas and black volcanic sand. This is a great place to go for a family vacation.

  • Uluwatu/Padang Padang - If you're seeking a surfer's paradise in the heart of southern Bali, this is the place for you. The beaches are on the Bukit Peninsula, and experienced surfers should only ride the waves here.

  • Nusa Dua - This area of Bali is located on the southernmost tip of the island, and its beaches are considered the best in Bali. It has two distinct areas: the resort area and the town of Tanjung Benoa, which has local shops and restaurants.


Central Bali

The central region of Bali is far more than just the island's geographical center.

The central region is also Bali's cultural, historical, and spiritual center.

It is shown in the natural beauty of this region and the ancient traditions that are still carried out to this day.

  • Ubud - For decades, this town was a sleepy artist village that was then transformed into its own little metropolis. Its rice terraces and mountains form the backdrop and base for exploring the temples, museums, and heart of Bali.


Eastern Bali

This section of Bali has a down-to-earth atmosphere. It is far more toned down than, say, southern Bali.

  • Tulamben is known for its scuba diving, but there isn't much else to offer in this area. Just off the coast, the wreckage of the USS Liberty is in the sea. This town is also the perfect jumping-off point for those headed to the Gili Islands.

  • Sanur - This mellow town is perfect for family trips. The beach is surrounded by a picturesque coral reef that keeps the waters calmer and shallower, making it a perfect place for the kids to play. It is also home to the largest children’s playground and café, Peekaboo.


Western Bali

Western Bali is considered the most representative of the “real” Bali. It is mountainous, with volcanoes and rice paddies, and is tourist-free.

  • Balian Beach - Balian Beach is considered a "secret spot" in Eastern Bali because few tourists venture there. This black sand beach offers great surfing and beautiful coves to explore with the kids.

  • Nyanyi is the rural area of this section of Bali. If you travel here, you will want to see the UNESCO Heritage Site of JatiLuwih rice terraces, the Tanah Lot Temple, and Mount Batukaru. You will also want to surround yourself with nature and the history of Bali here.

Bali has something to offer for everyone.

No matter what type of trip you are looking to take and who will be on it, Bali has what you want.
