Bali secrets that do not need discovering,
It is a bit contradictory, is not it? That they are slightly undiscovered only makes it more fun – and not as horribly touristy as Kuta or Seminyak. But that also makes that I really want to tell you about it. Are you going to Bali soon? Check out these places:
Kanto Lampo – Ubud
In addition to beautiful rice fields, around Ubud you will also find a number of waterfalls that are worthwhile. And I am not talking about the famous Tegenungan where tourists swim and sunbathe – there is a sign “be happy, not naked” that’s funny though.
Drive on with your scooter and you will find the Kanto Lampo. A smaller waterfall where the local population bathes and washes their clothes. Tip: try to climb up the waterfall. Slightly slippery, but very cool.
Pomegranate – Ubud
Slightly closer to the center of Ubud – you do not need a scooter for this – you will find Pomegranate halfway down a hidden path. A kind of large tent where you can sit with a coconut. The menu is somewhat limited, but the sunset is amazing.
The Elephant – Ubud
I was actually planning to eat at Crate Café, but I found such a disappointment that I ended up at The Elephant. Fortunately, because it is so relaxed here. The atmosphere, the decor, the food. Perfect for a break from the hectic city or an hour-long scooter ride.
La Baracca – Canggu
Italian restaurant – for when you’re done with Indonesian, which is really my favorite food – La Baracca has two branches, in Seminyak and Canggu. The latter is somewhat more hidden and my favorite. Nice decorated and great food, lots of vegetarian too.
Le Pirate – Nusa Ceningan
Almost everyone who comes to Bali will take a trip to the Gili Islands, but have you considered Nusa Lemongan and Ceningan? Small islands at about twenty minutes from Bali, connected with a yellow bridge. On the smallest island of Ceningan you will find Le Pirate. Small beach huts where you can sleep, with an infinity pool on your doorstep. What else do you want?
