Uluwatu is a budget friendly tropical paradise located in southern Bali. Its roots in tourism began in surfing back in the 1970’s, and it has since become a world class surf destination. Surfers flock to “Indo” or “Bali” to have a once in a lifetime surfing adventure, and Uluwatu is a key location. More than just surfing, Ulu Watu has tours of a Balinese Hindu Temple, yoga retreats, world class beaches, encounters with Bali Long Tailed Monkeys, and fun nightlife. The best part is for what you pay for hotels in busy western cities, you can get a personal ocean view villa. If your allure is more budget friendly, you can find super cheap deals to extent your stay for long periods of time. Visa’s allow you to stay 30 days, with a 30-day extension. Uluwatu is a short drive south from the Denpasar Airport, and the name Ulu Watu means “lands’ end rock”. If you are planning a trip to Bali, we recommend making Uluwatu a priority location.

Padang Padang Beach, Bali - Ono Vita

BEAcHES IN ULUWATU - padang padang beach

There are a few beaches in the area, all worth seeing, but most noteworthy is Padang Padang Beach. It is famously shown in the movie Eat, Pray, Love starring Julia Roberts (Eat, Pray, Love in Ubud, Bali – Ono Vita).  The beach is situated at the bottom of a cliff with the only way up and down being stairs. Despite the limited access, locals keep the beach well supplied, so you can have refreshments, rent a beach umbrella, and take surfing lessons without having to use the stairs. The size of the beach changes vastly with the tides revealing a rocky bottom during low tide, and a narrow stretch of sand at high tide. If you are lucky, or have enough time, you will come across the Bali Long Tailed Monkeys right on the beach. It is amazing to watch them, but they will steal so keep a close watch on your belongings if they are around. Locals are friendly, and will certainly be trying to sell you something on the beach.
