Hey all travellers and adventurers!
We are going to Bali for 2 weeks in april, we would like to know any suggestions of Bali's hidden secrets about remote quiet beaches where can stay in simple huts for budget 5-10 eur and where is possible to swim, relax on the beach and surf!
Have a look at Lembongan island - the scoot ferry leaves from Sanur and will take you about 45 minutes - lovely little island without the hustle and bustle of Bali and some great surf breaks - Dream beach (watch out you dont end up in the seaweed farm!) and Lacerations break (you can guess the reason why its named Lacerations). Hire a motorbike and head over the yellow bridge and explore Cenigen and Penida islands that are linked by the bridge. Cheapest accom on Lembongan is probably at the scubali dive outfit - right on the beach where the scoot ferry lands.
For relax, yes.. agree with littlewing. Lembongan island is the best island in Bali for relaxing. You can try Brawa Beach, Kuta Beach, Jimbaran Beach, Sanur Beach. But I saw many tourism surf in Serangan Beach.
If you like adventure you may try to climb Mount Agung or Mount Batur. So lets go to Bali..
If you traveling to Bali.. i am from Bali, better for trip first you can browsing in internet about how much budget stay and cost life in Bali here,,
happy nice trip in here guys....

Hi there, I am a female independant traveler and I was just in Indonesia for two months. When I was in Bali I hired a suzuki jimny for three days and drove around the centre of the island. I drove myself so all I had to pay was the hire. cost me $30 for three days. I discovered so many things when I was lost.. ha ha.. if you want culture than just lose yourself in it. If you want resort and relax.. well I can't comment on that but Bali is truly beautiful. Check out my blog for the entry regarding my time there. have fun.. M
Hello Aidi 😊
How did your trip to Bali go? Did you find hidden secrets and what budget did you manage on?
If you want to visit some happening places in Bali, then a must go places are Karma Kandara (should go down to the private beach, it is extremely beautiful) and watching sunset at Rockbar Ayana.
Another beautiful beaches and not too crowded are Geger Beach, Bluepoint, and Padang padang beach.
For culinary you must try : Naughty Nuris Ribs at Ubud, Dirty Duck (also at Ubud), 'Nasi Babi Guling Ibu Oka', Ultimo at Seminyak, Laota Porridge (open 24 hours in Tuban), and Nasi Pedas Ibu Andika (located in Pasar Kuta Lama).
Hope it can help and have fun in Bali
you could browse where to visit in Bali <snip>

I would definitely go to La Plancha in Seminyak <snip> to enjoy the sunset.
I would recommend a trip to Lovina to watch the dolphins. Partly because of the dolphins but more because of the trip through the mountains. Make sure you stop at the gitgit waterfall and just make some more stops, that's the part of Bali that's still mostly untouched and filled with ancient trees.
Of course any Bali trip should include enjoying a beautiful sunset which is especially beautiful when you go to Tanah Lot, which is also an excellent place to shoot some mouthwatering pictures.
For food you definitely have to go to Naughty Nuri's, even though it's not local food you will have the best spareribs ever in a super relaxed environment. For local food check warung Biku or for more upscale but definitely a super experience try restaurant Merah Putih <snip> in Seminyak.
Nightlive wise, I would advice going/staying in Seminyak and maybe visit Mint if you like to go out late and party.
Anyway, cheers and enjoy!

I recommended Munduk village, central mountains of Bali. Get to the waterfalls, plantations treks, rice fields, fruits, coffee, cacao, and here grows cloves. You would feel a cool misty ambience at an elevation of at least 1000m.
In response to: Msg #128870
Each region on the island has its own distinct charm. For instance Kuta and legiyan are famous among backpackers, Pemuteran is much of an isolated place, Amed is good for honeymooners. I have infact written an article where i have mentioned the specialties of each regions in Bali. You may view that by following the link below.

I agree with littlewing, Lembongan island is an amazing place. There are many reasons to visit Lembongan, but my favorite is diving. You can see fields of pristine coral (it's a beautiful) also you can dive with the amazing sunfish.
if you are in budget to visit bali, the best suggest is stay at homestay/dorm in kuta area, which is walking distance to the beach and also at front side of the beach they offers surf lesson with very reasonable and bargain price there. to see around bali the best is rent scooters 5USD/day, to explore around south, west or north Bali.
