Uluwatu

Common description

This is a large limestone peninsula which, bar a sliver of land just south of the airport, would be a separate island. It is rugged and dry, and pre-tourist development this was a real backwater of Bali.
The Bukit (as it is commonly referred to) includes the famous cliff-hanging temple at Uluwatu, a number of Bali's very best beaches including Balangan, and the top surfing spots on the island.

As is so often the case, it was intrepid surfers who really opened up the eyes of the world to this part of the island. The two main towns with strong local communities on the Bukit are Pecatu and Ungasan.

The Bukit Peninsula is connected to Kuta through Jimbaran by the busy Jalan Bypass Nusa Dua and this is the only route in. from Kuta to Uluwatu for example takes 30 to 40 minutes on winding roads.
Joining a tour can be a cheaper way of getting to Uluwatu and this destination is very widely offered by tour operators all over the island.
