Bali, Indonesia is a complete destination unto itself and caters to all of ones’ holiday needs. Whether you are someone who loves to relax by the beach and enjoy a sun downer or someone who is an outdoor buff, Bali is the perfect holiday destination for you.
Here are top eleven ways you can experience the best of Bali as a solo female traveler.
- Hit a beach shack at Seminyak Beach
Bali has the most amazing sunsets, nothing like a gorgeous and relaxed sun-down at one of the best beaches in Bali. Most shacks play live music every day and the same coupled with a picture perfect sky makes this a must do in Bali.
- Take a Surf lesson at Kuta Beach
Surfing is the most loved sport at any beach destination. We recommend taking a surf lesson with a reputed provider at Kuta Beach, an entire section of the beach is dedicated to beginner surfers. This one-hour session will leave you feeling gratified and confident like never before.
- Yoga – at the beach
Bali is a popular destination for Yogis from all over the world, the yoga vibe is contagious and is a great energy booster. Nothing like a soothing 45 min yoga session just before the beautiful sunset.
- Scoopy Ride
Bali has narrow roads and traffic that can blow you off a little. If you can ride a gearless two-wheeler, rent their popular ‘scoopy’ and ride around the town. In case you can’t ride one you can go as pillion on the local scoopy taxis.
Besides beating the traffic this is also the best way to enjoy the beach town breeze.
- Active Volcano Trek
Mt. Batur sunrise trek offers you one of the most magical and unforgettable sunrises you will ever see. Scaling this active volcano in the wee hours of night/ morning will certainly make you feel like you are on “Top of the World”
- Hit one of the popular beach clubs
Potato Head and KuDeta both beach clubs offer the best sunset views of Bali. An infinity pool to relax in, comfortable lounge set up, great music and awesome cocktails, you must find time to visit at least either of the two.
- Cycle through the paddy fields
One of the most beautiful ways to enjoy the breath-taking paddy fields is to cycle your way through the interiors of Bali. You don’t need to be a fitness freak for this, the cycling is mostly downhill.
- Ubud Art Market
A mix of culture, handicrafts, hand made goods and art, Ubud Art market is worth a visit.
Be sure to negotiate and you might find a perfect bargain.
- Kecak Dance at Uluwatu temple
A trip to Bali is incomplete without a visit to one of the temples. Kecak dance ( a depiction of the Indian Ramayan ) is a must watch if you visit the Uluwatu temple.
- Scuba Dive
If you are a little adventurous do take out some time to discover the deep blue. Bali is a great destination for beginner divers.
- Spa it out!
Last but perhaps the most important, it’s a must to take a Spa in Bali. Nothing like a perfect Balinese Massage – Pure Indulgence.
