The South is characterized by the famous Kuta Beach Bali and the nearby beaches of Sanur, Nusa Dua and Uluwatu area.
Kuta beach Bali attracts travelers from all over the world who love to spend a couple of weeks in luxurious resorts or budget accommodation and surf, get a tan or party at the beach.
However the south of Bali is also the perfect spot for sightseeing to the other parts of the island since all of the major roads end in Denpasar.
You can leave early and visit the beautiful rice fields around Ubud or the mountain range near Kintamani and be back for dinner all in one day.
A popular trip is also visiting Tanah Lot. This temple is actually located in West Bali but it's only an hour drive from Kuta Beach Bali.
Even though the south lacks the wide variety of sights found in the other parts of Bali there are still of couple of attractions that are worth visiting...
This is the biggest and busiest city of Bali with governmental offices, Chinese businesses, Javanese food stalls and a lot of traffic jams.
If you travel through Denpasar on your way to the north there are a couple of interesting sights you could visit.
The Bali Museum, the Pura Jagatnata temple and the Werdi Budaya Art Center are all close by and besides learning about the Balinese history you can also see cultural performances.
Pura Luhur Ulu Watu:
This sea temple is one of the most impressive and also one of the six most important temples on Bali. It’s small and if you come early in morning you could be the only traveler here.
The temple sits on top of a 100 m high cliff with a view to die for. You could sit here for hours watching the waves crash into the rocks below...
If you want to see something else besides Kuta beach, Sanur or Nusa Dua beach take a look at some remote and beautifully beaches located more south of the island.
Balangan beach has puddles you can soak in, at Dreamland you can stroll endlessly while at the surfers’ paradise Pantai Suluban you can admire the most amazing ocean colors...
