This fabulously beautiful island is deservedly considered the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia. There is always something to do and see in Bali — holidays here are rarely limited to sunbathing on the beaches and walking.
First of all, the stunningly beautiful tropical nature of this region deserves attention. Tourists can climb the slopes of ancient volcanoes to meet the dawn there, travel around the island, go to the amazing rice plantations and colorful temples lurking in the heart of the jungle. The coast also offers a lot of entertainment. There are plenty of great places for surfing, diving and snorkeling, beach clubs with discos and parties, and those who prefer a more relaxing holiday can do yoga and meditation.
Being the most popular and bustling area of Bali, Kuta attracts young people, lovers of shopping and parties. Surfers like to relax on the local coast, but there are beaches with almost no waves where you can sunbathe and swim. There is a lot to see in Kuta — there are several beautiful temples and an excellent water park, which is considered one of the best not only in Bali, but also in all of Asia.
Gunung Kawi Cave Temple (Gunung Kawi)
The complex of five small tombs of King Anak Wungsu and his family is located at the bottom of a steep ravine, on both sides of the Pakerisang River. Next to it there is a small temple carved into the rock, and a little further there is a picturesque waterfall. This is one of the most atmospheric shrines of the island, where the true spirit of Bali is clearly felt. The distance between Gunung Kavi Temple and Kuta is about 50 km. There is no bus service here, so you will have to get here with an excursion or by rented transport.
