How to reach Bali?

Bali’s Denpasar airport (Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS)) is one of the busiest airports in Indonesia. The city is well connected with the major cities around the world. You can also get direct flights to Bali from Singapore, Malaysia, and nearby countries.

The only airport in Bali is around 15 Kilometres away from the main city and you will get a taxi or public bus from there to the city. Denpasar airport is a small airport so you will not have any problem getting out and finding a taxi or bus. Always remember to negotiate with the cab drivers on the final fare. You can also check with your hotel, if there is any bus service from the airport to the hotel, it will be a cheaper option to travel.

Segara Beach (The best beach for honeymoon couples)

I would like to add Segara Beach to the list of Bali travel guides for couples and solo travelers. It is a rocky and sandy beach along with a long stretch perfect for a lazy relaxing day. Surfing in the high waves, grabbing some tasty bites from a local food stall, drinking coconut water, and lying down on the beach shore is all you need on your vacation.

It Is next to the famous Kuta beach but the only difference is less crowded as most of the tourists spent time on Kuta beach. One can spend the whole day on this less crowded beach while swimming in cold water or surfing in the waves or getting Tan on the beach.

Kedonganan Beach is still not so popular among tourists as most of the tourists visit nearby Kuta or Jimbaran but this beach also has a serene view with calm waves. A white sandy beach with a sloppy shore, its calm waves are best for a long walk or jogging. Even you can do swimming and fishing here. The local fish market is close by and is also known as the Kedonganan fish market. From this beach, one can go to Jimbaran beach very easily as both beaches are just next to each other.

Jimbaran Beach Bali

This long stretch of beach is a perfect spot to spend a lazy moment with your loved one. Beach shore restaurants serve fresh seafood. If you want to spend an evening with your loved one on a pristine beach while gazing at the sunset, then this is one of my recommendations. 

You can surf well as it has great waves, and you can also do other water activities along with swimming, and snorkeling even the Garuda Vishnu temple is close by. From Jimbaran, one can visit Uluwatu temple, World’s biggest Statue Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK), Kuta beach, and Tanah lot all these places are close to this beach.

Honeymoon Beach Bali

Honeymoon beach is one of the untouched beaches in Bali. Most tourists spend their time in Kuta, Jimbaran, or Seminyak beach. This beach makes the list of Bali travel guides for couples and newly married because of its serene beauty. This beach is in the same stretch as Kuta beach but people are not aware of this lovely, soothing, calm, and peaceful beach. Of course, we can’t blame them because accessing the beach is a little tricky.

This beach is located in Tegal Wangi, Jimbaran, South Kuta, Badung. If anyone is at Tegal Wangi they can see this beach from the top. From Tegal Wangi Segara Temple, one can climb down the steep path to reach Honeymoon beach. There is no sign on the road so you need to be careful while getting down the beachside.

Just go along with the sloping dirt road, and once you are there on the beach it’s all worth it. You will all be by yourself because it’s a calm and neat beach. Early morning is a good time to explore as there are no food stalls down so you need to climb all the way up again to grab your meal in nearby restaurants. As I mentioned, people don’t usually come here so this place is filled with corals and cactus.

Address: Jimbaran, South Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali 80361, Indonesia (location)
