For those who are seeking a green getaway and reconnecting with nature, Bangli has a little surprise for you.

A trip to Bali is not complete without a visit to at least one of their many beautiful beaches, which is where Sidemen comes in. A quieter location that is less traveled on the east side of the island, Sidemen has some of the most breathtaking views that Bali has to offer. This Bali beach comes with none of the struggles that an overpopulated tourist spot has either!
So kick back, enjoy rafting, surfing when the tides are high, or even book a stay in the mountains to fully enjoy and immerse yourself into the peaceful escape that Sidemen offers.
If you thought Bali’s views were amazing, just wait until you sink your teeth into the food! Balinese and Indonesian cuisine is one of a kind, even recognised by the likes of Anthony Bourdain. Canggu is one place in particular that elevates the gastronomic experience.
Bali’s café scene has grown to cater to avocado-loving millennials as well, evident from the success of The Avocado Factory. The café does a number of dishes with the fruit; including tacos, toast, and even breadcrumb patties! Eating vegan and plant-based is also pretty easy in Bali with eateries such as Oma Jamu and Peleton Superstore available!
We saved the best for last, so prepare yourself for Bali’s true hidden gem. In the Northern region of Bali lies four fairytale-like waterfalls, each with its own charm to it. That being said, nothing quite compares to the dreamy Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfalls.
The best part about this location is that most tourists tend to overlook it, which means that you will be able to enjoy the peace of flora and the trilling of fauna all by yourself. You can even pack a picnic to enjoy in the sitting areas while you take in the crashing waterfalls.
With that, we hope that you will be rushing to the airport to book your trip to Bali now! Be it a romantic getaway for a honeymoon or a relaxing vacation with friends, Bali has all the attractions and more to make up for it.
