Nice places to visit in Bali. Part 3

The Real Treasure of Suluban Beach
Everyone knows Suluban Beach to be a surfers’ paradise, but Suluban Cave might just be the real treasure here.
Looking almost like a movie set from the Pirates of the Caribbean series with its otherworldly glamour, Suluban Cave oozes both mystery and mystic.
Located directly under Uluwatu, the cave actually leads up to the beach near Uluwatu Temple, another incredible sea temple you should definitely visit too!
Getting There: Located at the Bukit Peninsula, Suluban Beach is connected to Kuta and Denpasar through Jimbaran by the busy Jalan Bypass Nusa Dua and this is the only route in, approximately 34 km from Denpasar. Coordinates here

Visit the Broken Sea – Pasih Uwug
Pasih Uwug, also known as the broken sea, is one unique attraction in Nusa Penida that happens to be a cool geological phenomenon.
Why is it known as the broken sea? On first sight, you’ll see a natural arch created by the rock cliffs. The arch – or the hole in the rock cliff as some would say – actually used to be a cave! The floor of the cave had collapsed, creating the arch we see today. The hole in the cliff has also allowed ocean waters to flow through – creating a gorgeous natural pool on the other side to marvel at, and even swim in!
Address: Jalan Batu Nunggul, Nusa Penida

Soak in a ‘Jacuzzi’ on the Tegal Wangi Beach
Another wonder of nature that should not be missed – make your way to Tegal Wangi Beach. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by this gorgeous escape.
Ever wanted to soak in your private tub with an amazing view of the ocean? Tegal Wangi Beach gives you exactly that.
With little holes on the shore filled with seawater fresh from the ocean – you can be sure to have a comfortable soak in your beachy ‘jacuzzi’.
A romantic place to have a lovely date at; make sure to take lots of photos to commemorate the time spent with your loved one.
Address: Jalan Pura Tegalwangi, Badung, Jimbaran
Getting There: Walk down the hill from Pura Tegalwangi.

Mystery Boulder Beach – Yeh Leh
You probably wouldn’t have heard of the Yeh Leh Beach unless you are a local fisherman.
Located in Jembrana, just off the Denpasar-Gilimanuk highway, Yeh Leh is not decorated with soft white sand like your ideal beach.
Instead, thousands of boulders litter the shore, either covered in algae or washed clean by the waves. These mysterious rocks have been smoothed over for hundreds of years, leaving few clues about their origin.
The beach is actually easily accessible, and you can visit at low tide to see Yeh Leh in all its glory, with the boulders unearthed and many interesting marine animals caught in the rock pools. And if you can, don’t miss its stunning sunset, which lights up every shining rock on the shore.
Getting there: Yeh Leh is located at the edge of Denpasar-Gilimanuk at Jembrana. 

The Twin Lakes of Tamblingan and Buyan
With their serene, mystical beauty, these twin crater lakes sit side by side, split in the middle by a one kilometer stretch of forest.
The lakes are the life-source for the surrounding communities, and you may even see locals plying the waters in traditional dug-out canoes. To view both lakes together, the best vantage point is from the top of the hill at Asah Gobleg Village.
Trekking the forests around the lakes, you’ll discover some of the most pristine natural habitats in Bali – home to lively troops of monkeys, squirrels and countless birds.
Getting There: A few tour companies specialising in northern Bali offer day trips with the twin lakes on their itineraries. The nearest centre to the lakes is Bedugul, around a 2 hour drive from Kuta if you hire a driver or rent your own vehicle. Budget travellers can hop on a bemo to Bedugul from Batubulan terminal in Denpasar. There’s a variety of places to stay and eat in Bedugul, many with gorgeous mountain and rice terrace views.
