Get Ready for a Fire Dance - Kecak
The absence of any instrumental accompaniment throughout the performances makes the Kecak dance novel, and the only strains are the result of the polyrhythmic singing by the male dancers, sounding like ‘keh-chuck’, giving the dance its name. The best place to witness the show is at the open amphitheater near to the Uluwatu Temple, which uses the setting sun and ocean skyline as its hypnotic theatrical backdrop.
Timings: Opened daily from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM.
Beat the Heat at Blue Point
The Blue Point is yet another beach which is known for the excellent surfing opportunities that it offers. The shoreline of the beach is situated at the southern tip of the Badung regime, inside a small village by the name of Pecatu.
The place gets its distinct name from the Blue Point Bay Villas and Spa, situated in the area. The white sand, sunny conditions and strong waves make it just the spot to spend your time lazing at the beach, going for a dip or riding the waves.
While at the beach, you can try snorkelling, scuba diving and other fun water sports as well. The Blue Point is also the only way through which you can travel onwards to the temple of Uluwatu, Padang-Padang shoreline, and Dreamworld.
Location: Pecatu, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia
Timing: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Enjoy Panoramic Views At Pura Luhur Uluwatu
