As a Aussie, and a Sydneysider, we have great beaches. Its funny how we travel the world to have the best beach holidays, but often are disappointed when we compare beaches to the ones in our own backyard.
I felt like that visiting the beaches of Seminyak, Double Six, Legian and Canggu in Bali. I wasn’t there to surf, so I wasn’t judging the beaches on the waves (which I’ve heard are awesome). We had a beach front resort , so it was lovely looking out at the ocean. But we never swam in the ocean. The water looked a bit treacherous, the tide would come up high and the beach wasn’t as pristine as the sands of the NSW South and North Coast. Plus it was crowded with people. We weren’t keen on lying down on the sand when we could just lie by the pool and look at the ocean!
So our beach time in these tiny suburbs of Bali was spent soaking up the beach life. Bars, Beach clubs, Warungs… such as laid back and relaxed lifestyle! Take me back.
The beach bar right outside our accommodation at Batu Belig Beach. Very relaxed vibe.
