These five magical places to visit in Bali will leave you breathless! You many never want to leave this gorgeous island in Indonesia.
Bali is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been to. This small island has lush green land and beautiful coastlines. Below are what we believe to be five of the most magical places to visit in Bali…
Tanah Lot has appeared at the top of the list for many websites, and there is a reason why so many tourists visit this temple to catch the sunset. Located at the top of a rock formation off the shores of Bali island, this is a great spot to watch the sunset. The weather was a bit hazy when we were there, but the crashing waves and cloud formations made the journey worthwhile.
If you want to avoid the crowd, go there during the day. You won’t get to enjoy the sunset, but in my opinion, Tanah Lot is beautiful at any time of the day.
Nusa Penida is a small, yet beautiful and peaceful island in Bali. It used to be Bali’s best-kept secret, but in recent years, more travelers are flocking to this island to see what it has to offer. On the west coast of the island, you’ll find Angel’s Billabong, a small clear pool between two rock cliffs, which creates a natural picturesque frame.
From the top of the cliff, you can see the two distinct colors of the pool and the ocean, and also manta rays swimming around at the edge of the Billabong. It is such a beautiful sight! Swimming is allowed in the pool. If you wish to swim, ensure that it is low tide and do not go too near to the edge, as it could be dangerous.
Campuhan Ridge is just a short ride away from central Ubud. The view of the rice paddies and rice terraces, fresh air, and the bright sky will make this walk very peaceful and therapeutic. And the best part? It is a relatively simple route and is entirely free.
With very minimal elevations and slopes, most people should be able to complete the Campuhan Ridge without a problem. If you want to escape the crowd and heat, it is best to go early in the morning.
This place is great if you love adrenaline and adventure. It is a relatively challenging route, so be sure to go there well-prepared. Bring along a good pair of shoes and clothes to change. Once you get through the narrow water stream and large boulders, you’ll find yourself surrounded by jagged rock formations, pools, and stunning waterfalls.

Lempuyang Temple is regarded as one of the oldest temples in Bali. From the peak of the temple, you get to enjoy splendid views of the mountains and greenery. The top of the temple has a pleasant and calming atmosphere. Stay here a little longer to enjoy the view and take a photo at the iconic “Gateway to Heaven” facing the Mount Agung.
Bali has a special place in my heart, and these are the five magical places we recommend you visit. If you are traveling with a larger group, try staying in a villa in Bali. It provides a different experience compared to hotels and we are sure it will make your trip an exceptional one.
