Uluwatu is the wide swathe of dry, high cliff-fringed land in the south and west portion of the Bukit peninsula at the very southern tip of Bali. This area is relatively quiet, isolated and remote and includes the villages of Pecatu and Ungasan. The picturesque views of the Indian Ocean from atop the lookouts are especially beautiful. Uluwatu is also home of one of the most important temples on Bali and a horde of curious monkeys.
Uluwatu is famous for a number of excellent hidden coves that are home to high quality, fine white sand beaches, including classics such as Belangan, Dreamland and Padang-Padang. These areas are well known for fantastic waves and surfers of all levels have flocked here for decades. There are a number of world-class hotels in Uluwatu, as well as luxury villas, surf camps and homestays. This area is around 45 minutes to one hour from the international airport depending on traffic and other factors.
