This hidden beach located in the village of Bunga Mekar, on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida Island, which are accessible via a 40 to 50 minutes boat ride from Sanur. An incredible hidden beach which framed by towering, steep cliffs, deep turquoise blue waters further embraced by powdery white sand with the most amazing view like heaven on earth.

Pura Tirta Empul 🛕
One of the busiest water temples in Indonesia, Tirta Empul is a temple considered sacred by Balinese Hindu community. The temple has several holy springs which are said to have been created by The God Indra and believed to be blessed water that could purify those who bathe there.
Tirta Empul is dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu God of water. In the Balinese language, Tirta Empul loosely translated means water gushing from the earth, which for this reason Tirta Empul is regarded as a holy spring. The Tirta Empul Temple includes shrines to Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, as well as one for Indra and Mount Batur. It is considered one of the five most holy temples in all of Bali and is considered one of the holiest water sources in Bali.
Scuba Diving 🤿
The USS Liberty Wreck is the most famous dive site in Bali. It is also one of the best sunken ship wrecks in the world! When I arrive in Bali, I absolutely have to dive here!
The liberty ship was hit by a Japanese torpedo then was beached near Tulamben. In 1963, the eruption of Mount Agung caused the vessel to slip off the beach, and it now lies on a sand slope in 9 to 30 m of water.
The wreck is about 130 m long with the shallowest part at about 5 m deep and the deepest on the other side of the wreck at about 30 m deep.

Tegallalang forms the 3 most splendid terraced landscapes in Ubud’s shared region, with the others being in the villages of Pejeng and Campuhan.

Pura Luhur Lempuyang 🛕
Obscurity aside, the temple of Pura Luhur Lempuyang is one of Bali’s most important religious places: it’s one of the six sad kahyangan (“temples of the world”) dedicated to Sang Hyang Widi Wasa (the supreme God), and it’s also one of the island’s nine directional temples that “protects” the native Balinese from evil spirits.
The temple presents an interesting challenge to visitors: reaching the top means conquering 1,700 steps cut into mountainside jungle, requiring about an hour and a half of serious climbing. Ordinary Balinese make their way up the stairs to ask for divine assistance with problems or request blessings from above.
Floating Breakfast 🦄
If the idea of a floating breakfast seems silly, know that Bali is extremely hot and humid. Being able to cool off in our villa pool while sipping coffee and nibbling on a delicious breakfast doesn’t seem half bad if it means we get to escape the heat.
Floating breakfasts are also an awesome way to pamper ourselves. I highly recommend experiencing this at least once if you’re planning a trip to Bali, Indonesia.
