Welcome to the "real" Bali. Temples, markets and traditional crafts.
You can often have one of the grey/black sand beaches for yourself.
A great place to explore traditional Balinese food. Try the Gianyar Babi Guling.
If you are lucky you might find someone local to share a beer or two.
Good beaches, Bali Safari and Marine park and lots to see.
Spas and massages are hard to find, unless you live in a villa with spa. Luckily Ubud is nearby.
White water rafting on Ayung river and horseback riding on the beach.
About half and hours drive to Padangbai.
Secret and Keramas beach are world class surf spots.
