The highlights of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula
Near the southern tip of Bali, you'll find the Bukit peninsula – an incredibly scenic area characterised by sheer cliff faces, mystic ancient temples, and long strips of white sand beach.
If you're searching for a long term lease in Bali the area surrounding Bukit, (which means hill in Balinese), should certainly be considered. It's removed from the madness of Kuta, yet thanks to it's beautiful beaches and fascinating historical sites this is an area that will keep even the most intrepid adventurers occupied.
Pura Luhur Ulu Watu
Atop towering cliffs on the tip of Bukit peninsular sits one of the most spiritually important and intriguing temples in Bali. You'll hear the constant crashing of waves as you enter through the ornate entrance – two statues of the Hindu deity Ganesha.
Due to the fact it's still an active site of worship only Hindus may enter the small inner temple on the edge of the cliff. But anyone can enjoy the phenomenal sunset vistas of the Indian Ocean from atop the cliffs: one of the better views you're likely to find in Bali.
This expansive museum near the heart of Nusa Dua is packed with an eclectic collection of art, showcasing several centuries of Pacific Ocean culture. There's more than 600 paintings on display here, including fascinating art from Matisse – one of the most famous impressionist painters of all time.
Come during the quiet season and you may be lucky enough to get the entire museum to your self.
