[Jakarta – Malang – Banyuwangi – Ijen Crater – Bali] Dec 2015 – Jan 2016 Day 3 Pandawa Beach, Padang-Padang Beach, Blue Point Beach, and Uluwatu, Bali
After a highly recommended adventure in Banyuwangi and Ijen Crater, we finally reached Bali on 28th Dec. There was nothing to do on the 28th as we arrived at 9pm and we took a rest soon afterwards. On the 29th, we didn’t plan to catch sunrise at all as we were lacking a proper sleep so we sleep till 7am. Soon after waking up, we swam for a little while in the villa.
At 11am, we departed from our villa directly to Pandawa Beach. At first, we didn’t know where to go and we didn’t plan at all. We planned to consult with the driver as he supposed to know better than us. Unfortunately, the driver was not as expert as we were expecting to be so we told him to bring us to the destination near us. So, we went to Pandawa Beach first. The sun was insanely hot. It’s good for tourists from Europe or Australia but unfortunately not for me. I had a fair skin and with this, I’m turning literally dark. We bought sunglasses and took a bunch of pictures ( Indonesians really love to take pictures ! )
After Pandawa Beach ( which we only took pictures as the sun was really mad ), we went to Padang Padang Beach. The beach here is literally beautiful to swim, surf or to tan ourselves. This place is really photogenic. There were so many Caucasians here than Indonesians.
2 beaches? Come on, there were still much to come when you visit Bali. Next destination, we went to Blue Point Beach. This place is famous for the Single Fin Bali as you can enjoy a cup of coffee or cocktail with the sea as your scenery. Going down you can enjoy Blue Point Beach and sunbathe.
Satisfied with Padang Padang Beach, we went to Uluwatu. This place is a huge Pura and there were monkeys so you had to be careful with your belongings. We didn’t got to understand the history or what is Uluwatu as we didn’t have any tour guides. You can check the history of Uluwatu in Google anyway.
Uluwatu was our last destination. For the next day, we planned to explore North Bali such as Ubud, Kintamani, etc so Stay tuned !
