On the southeast of Bali, lies Nusa Lembongan, a small island with unparalleled beauty to see. In the gulf named as Devil’s Tear, waves traveling far rush to the cliff, and a rainbow may appear among the rising vapors bathed in genial sunshine. When the waves recede, numerous cascades pour down, with pearl-like droplets shining in the air.
In the afternoon, you can walk or rest on beaches, lounged in warm sunshine and cozy breezes. Every time the waves embrace the shore, you can feel layers of blue running to your feet, cool and fresh. Then you may pick the gifts given by the ocean-shells, pebbles, etc, as souvenirs for this trip.
After a day of exploring, you can check into the Paus Putih Hotel and order a romantic meal of local specialties in its canteen with your lovers. With its perfect view of the ocean, you can appreciate both the scenery and the food, listening to the murmur of the sea.
Jimbaran Beach is known for its enchanting sunsets over the sea. Walking along the sea in the golden afterglow is warm and sweet for lovers. In addition, you may have a glimpse of the flights from the airport nearby taking off and flying across the flaming sky. As the sun meets the sea and disappears in a short time, you need to check the time to appreciate the beautiful sunset without any delay. When it’s getting dark, the people around will look like silhouettes, which is another unique view.
In the evening, the open-air seafood stalls can be seen everywhere on Jimbaran Beach. A candlelit seafood meal can be provided for you to have a rest with a feast of delicious food. Of course, you can also choose to enjoy the food and admire the sunset at the same time, which is somehow exotic and special.
Uluwatu is a stunning destination in south Bali for its cliff-top views. While visiting Uluwatu, you are likely to hear a well-known love story of it: a pair of young lovers jump into the sea from the cliff bravely to defend their unmovable love against the objection of their parents. The ancient story has passed down from generation to generation, making Uluwatu a piece of land holy for love and loyalty.
On the top of the cliff, dwells the temple of Uluwatu. It was built in the 11th century with solid granite. Looking down from the temple, you can see the Indian Ocean with its surging waves 250 meters below, which is a spectacular scene.
Uluwatu is a perfect place for lovers to take pictures. You can stand on the cliff at sunset to leave an unforgettable memory for yourself.
