This list will give you surprisingly impressive 8 Hidden Gems in Bali. Let’s start this journey.
1. Bukit Pantai Atuh
What came to your mind when you are thinking about Koh Phi Phi, Thailand? Yes, the clear water, the white beaches, impressive rock formations and tropical vegetation. Back to those stone/coral formations, Bali has those too. All you need to do is take a trip to Banjar Pelilit, desa Pejukutan, Nusa Penida, Kabupaten Klungkung.

2. Pantai Pasih Uug – Broken Beach
No, we are not talking about those Australian boots, UGGS. The Broken Beach is named for the natural bridge formed on coral rocks through the years. The beach itself is surrounded by the coral cliff and the coral cave look like a door to enter it. Visit this hidden beach at Nusa Penida, Banjar Sumpang, Desa Bunga Mekar. Maybe a boat trip under the natural coral bridge is for you.

3. Pantai Kubu – Only for Resort Guests
Unfortunately, this beach is protected nature area, so it is closed only for the resorts guests. A bathtub made by nature in a coral? You can find it in Pantai Kubu, Jimbaran. I can imagine myself in my swimwear enjoying the sun inside this nature pool.

4. Angel’s Billabong Nature Pool
Only the name reflects that this place is one you must visit. It’s not far away from Pantai Uug and still in Nusa Penida. There is a river estuary with a calm water surface and clear and overdraft that form natural pools of extraordinary beauty.

5. Devil Tears, Nusa Lembongan
Bali also has a beachfront scene with spectacular giant wave wall. There are many locations for you to enjoy the sea water splash on the end of a coral rock beach, one of them is the Devil Tears in Nusa Lembongan this. Feel yourself the thrill ejected waves hit a reef. The height of the water wall created by waves can reach 15 meters, holy molly.

6. Tegenungan Waterfall, Gianyar
Not more than 16 km from Denpasar, this hidden gems is a must visit when you are in Bali. The rock formation, the clear water, I am not so sure if you can jump from the cliff because it is a shallow pool. Head up to Desa Kemenuh, Kecamatan Sukawati, Kabupaten Gianyar.

7. Bukit Campuhan
When tranquility is a thing for you and green scenery will soften your soul, this is a good alternative than Ubud. Campuhan Hill where you can feel the embrace of nature and verdant valleys. And you will agree that seek tranquility among the crowd as possible and not just nonsense. All you need to do is rent a car or find a tour package to reach this hill.

8. Desa Pinggan, Kintamani
Bali is all about the beaches, such a cliche right. The beaches in Bali are of course still exquisite paradise. But, incredible Bali was not merely in the form of beach and sea. Try to go Pinggan village in Kintamani and find inspiring panorama for your traveler’s soul. When the sun began to peek out of the East horizon and haze began to descend to the village, a magical atmosphere will magically hypnotize you, makes you grateful ever to set foot in this place.
