Canggu is a coastal village and 10 km beach on the south coast of Bali, Indonesia. It lies approximately 10 kilometers north of the hustle and bustle of Kuta and presents a much more relaxing atmosphere of dining, cultural and beach activities.
Along the beach, there are two main temples, Pura Batu Bolong and Pura Batu Mejan, which are both hundreds of years old.
Jimbaran is a fishing village and coastal resort south of Kuta. Jimbaran Bay has a long beach with calm waters. It’s lined with fish restaurants and backed by tropical forest. At its northern end, colorful boats are pulled up by the lively, open-air Kedonganan fish market. Southwest of the bay are Dreamland Beach and Balangan Beach, known for their strong surf waves.
Kuta is a beach and resort area in the south of the island of Bali, Indonesia. One of Bali’s first tourist developments, it’s best known for its Indian Ocean surfing and party-centric atmosphere. Kuta’s long, consistent waves make it a popular surf spot, particularly for beginners, and plenty of outfitters offer board rentals and surf lessons. Shoppers head to Kuta’s large malls, and vendors sell everything from jewelry to cold beer. Raucous bars and clubs draw crowds of backpackers.
Legian is a suburban and beach area on the west coast of Bali just north of Kuta and south of Seminyak the area between Jl. Melasti and Jl. Dhyana Pura. Administratively it is a subdistrict of Kuta District of Badung Regency
Although one-sixth of the island’s population lives here, this vast region is overlooked by many visitors who stay trapped in the south Bali−Ubud axis.The big draw here is the incredible diving and snorkelling at nearby Pulau Menjangan. Arcing around a nearby bay, booming Pemuteran may be Bali’s best beach escape.
Nusa Dua is an area in the southern part of Bali, Indonesia, known as an enclave of large 5-star resorts. It is located 22 kilometers from Denpasar, the provincial capital of Bali, and administered under South Kuta District. Nusa Dua means two islands, because there are 2 islands in the bay of Bali Tourism Development Corporation area. On the southern side lies Peninsula Island, and on the northern side lies Nusa Dharma Island, which is smaller but shadier, and which contains the Pura/Temple Nusa Dharma.
Seminyak is a beach resort area at the southern end of Bali, Indonesia, with many luxury hotels, villas and spas, as well as high-end shopping and restaurants. Sleek bars and clubs with busy sunset scenes line Seminyak and Petitenget beaches, which are wide, west-facing stretches of Indian Ocean shoreline with gray sand and good surfing conditions.
The town of Ubud, in the uplands of Bali, Indonesia, is known as a center for traditional crafts and dance. The surrounding Ubud District’s rainforest and terraced rice paddies, dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, are among Bali’s most famous landscapes. Ancient holy sites include the intricately carved Goa Gajah (“Elephant Cave”) and Gunung Kawi, with its rock-cut shrines.
