A little further up to the “Bukit” area (the hills), there are a number of beaches in the Uluwatu and Nusa Dua areas that are perfect for those in search of tranquillity in a seemingly extraterrestrial space or for those in love with the surf life as some of the beaches promise great sets of waves.
