Here is your complete list of the 25 BEST Things To Do In Uluwatu Bali.
Go Beach Hopping In Uluwatu
It’s without a doubt that Uluwatu is home to some of the best beaches in Bali, so beach hopping around the region is a must.
With plenty of stunning white sand beaches to explore, you can surely work on your tan, go surfing, or simply swim in crystal clear waters.
I have put together a separate guide on the best beaches in Uluwatu which I highly recommend checking out.
Read It Here → 17 BEST Uluwatu Beaches
I don’t want to crowd this blog post with every single beach in the Bukit Peninsula, so below you will find a taster of the top 7 beaches to visit.
Bingin Beach is one of the more popular beaches that requires a bit of a journey to get to but it’s 100% worth it!
There are no roads that lead directly to the beach so you’ll have to park your scooter or car in the parking lot at top of the cliff.
From there it’s about a 10-minute walk down the cliffside via a set of concrete stairs.
Once you climb down, you’ll be welcomed by stunning blue waters, a perfect left-hand barreling wave, and a few bars and restaurants.

Nyang Nyang Beach
Nyang Nyang Beach is one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches on the Bukit Peninsula.
The glistening white sand and turquoise waters make this beach a must-see location during your visit to Bali.
The easiest way to get down to the beach is via the west entrance because there is a newly constructed road that leads from the top of the cliffs all the way down to the shoreline.
Upon arrival, there is a small ticketing booth where you’ll have to stop and pay an entry fee of 5,000 IDR to access the beach.
I recommend visiting Nyang Nyang Beach earlier in the morning before it gets too hot in the midday sun and you can enjoy a few hours down on the beach to yourself before it gets crowded.
If you do decide to visit Nyang Nyang Beach later in the day, I highly recommend sticking around for sunset which is generally around 6 pm.
You’ll also find a few local beach vendors where you can grab something to eat and drink during your visit.

Thomas Beach offers breathtaking views and is one of the most underrated beaches in the area.

Let me tell you about the top three clifftop beach clubs in Uluwatu!
El Kabron has what it takes to get you in the right mood. While cocktails are great and the infinity pool stunning, the restaurant is what makes El Kabron unique.
Come and taste the Hot Seafood Platter on the stones, the Black Paella with Baby Calamari, and wash it all down with a Margarita cocktail.

Please note that when booking a table, you’ll have to spend at least 400,000 IDR at the restaurant or bar.
Similarly, when staying late for the sunset party, you’ll have to spend a minimum of 1,000,000 IDR ($65) for a poolside lounge.

After that, you can have dinner and book a stay for the night, which I highly recommend!
Dinner here is reasonable but not cheap, rest assured the food is delicious.
Also keep in mind that when getting a sun bed, you’ll have to spend a minimum of 500,000 IDR (about $32).
Ulu Cliffhouse is open daily from 12 pm and closes late at night, so you have plenty of time to visit.
Last but not least is Savaya, an all-day party destination atop a cliff, 100 meters above the ocean.
Located at the southern tip of this island on the east coast, Savaya Bali has lovely clifftop vistas, an infinity pool, and some of the best music around.
They host events daily with different DJs and styles, and the entrance tickets are around 125,000 IDR.
I recommend coming early during the day to sip on a coconut while working on your tan and then staying for a meal and party.
Savaya is open daily from 1 pm and closes at 10 pm on weekdays and midnight on weekends, which is excellent!
With its unique combination of stunning design and fabulous environment, you can’t go wrong at Savaya!
