If you have travelled to almost everywhere in Bali, and want to up your game and venture to places less travelled, West Bali can be your next adventure.
And journeying west doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the five-star flair, good food, exotic beaches or the search for a spiritual self.
From deluxe places to stay, abounding water activities, restaurants with delicious local cuisine, to peculiar sightseeings, West Bali has it all.
And the best part? You don’t have to share it with throngs of other tourists.
1. Glamorous safari camping at Menjangan Dynasty Resort
Everything you thought you knew about West Bali will change after trying out the glamping experience at Menjangan Dynasty Resort.
Located on a quiet peninsula, the resort is one of the pioneers of new form of travel called glamping (glamorous camping) in Bali, a global trend that offers outdoor enthusiasts that intimate experience with nature without sacrificing on luxury and comfort.
Glamping takes camping to a whole new level. Forget about setting up the fire by yourself – everything is all-inclusive!
Beach glamp shouldn’t only be for backpackers, that’s why at Menjangan Dynasty Resort you can find 24 beach glamps with large decks and loungers included. If you want to get a better view of the bluish serene surroundings, you can rent the Cliff Tent Villas.
Each Cliff Tent Villa was made in South Africa with double-skinned canvas, and includes air-conditioning and a private pool.
With breathtaking surroundings, safari ambience, high-standard comfort and tons of activities to do, how can you miss out on Menjangan Dynasty Resort?2. Discover a hidden waterfall among the cliffs and rocks at Desa Musi, Gerokgak
Generally known only among locals, Musi Village (otherwise known as Desa Musi) is a refreshing escape for those searching for an authentic experience in a simple Balinese village.
There, you’ll discover its secret – a cliff area where a waterfall crashes powerfully into a natural pool.
As this waterfall is very hidden, the best way to reach this place is to ask the local villagers for directions when you reach Musi Village. It’s a great opportunity to interact with the locals too!
At sunset, you can take a walk in the village, hunt for the scattered Hindu temples and observe the simple daily life of the villagers.
3. A sea of green cliffs at Yehembang Village
The inhabitants of Yehembang Kangin Village in West Bali have created a touristic spot – Green Cliff. With the surrounding greenery and scenic cliffs, there’s little wonder why it’s named so.
Once at the top, you will be rewarded with the wide panorama of the Yeh cliff and the sounds of the river at the bottom.
Built at the edge of the cliff, the construction is made out of only bamboo (of 60 metres long and 10 metres high) to conserve the natural environment. A path to the wonders of nature, the Green Cliff promises an intimate encounter with the sea of green panorama.
That’s not to mention the numerous selfies you can take while enjoying the view!
Located in a popular area near Rambut Siwi temple, Green Cliff is easy to reach, so drop by if you are driving around in West Bali!
4. An abandoned plane in the middle of nowhere, or Jembrana regency
Bali is an island where the unexpected usually occurs, and where you can chance upon creative and random sights.
Such as an abandoned plane, for example.
Although it’s not a new phenomenon to the locals, several abandoned aircrafts have been spotted on the island. And one of them, a private property just like the others, can be found in the middle of a big field in Jembrana regency in West Bali.
We’ve heard that the original intention of the owner of this Boeing 737 was to spectacularly transform it into a library, restaurant or café, none of which had actually happened. Other stories say that the aircraft was supposed to be turned into a villa alongside others in Jembrana.
Well, even with no realised plans, the aircraft has become an attraction for travellers. This Boeing 737 seems to be the least visited, when compared to the other abandoned airplanes in Bali – such as those in South Kuta or perhaps the most famous one on the rooftop of Gate 88 Mall.
