Today we spent the whole day in Uluwatu. It was our first trip there, so we needed to ask a lot for the right way on the ride. Just ask the people on the streets for „Single-Fin Bar“ in Uluwatu, they will know! We started in Seminyak, so it wasn’t the shortest distance. In casual traffic you should calculate about one hour to get there, but it’s worth it! In Jimbaran the traffic is way more relaxed and you will enjoy the ride there, because the roads are very beautiful and lead you through a nice landscape. After the arrival we parked our scooters on top of the cliff right above the „Single-Fin Bar“. The first view is stunning, just enjoy it for a moment!
You have a lot of options how to spend your time at this place. The first thing you might recognize is that Uluwatu is a famous spot for surfers. It’s just fun to watch them surf and a big motivation for ourselves to see what it really means to „surf“ and why you take your lessons. The waves are huge and you have to go way more into the sea than on the sandy beaches in Seminyak area. In my opinion for beginners it’s a better place to watch the surfers than go surfing, because there is a hard, rocky ground which isn’t that comfortable if you fall off your board. And as I already mentioned you have to paddle a long way straight into the ocean to catch the waves.
The „Single-Fin Bar“ is not a cheap place to go, but related to the location you can get there drinks and food for a fair price. It is also possible to spend a beach day in Uluwatu. You just have to pass the Bars on top and go down the steps to the beach. You will find there a small beach surrounded by cliffs with enough space to hang out and it’s very nice for a quick refreshment as well. Be careful on your way home when it’s already dark outside, especially with the scooter. You have there a lot of sand and dirt on the road and the turns are not built like you expect them to be. Every sunday there is a big party at the „Single-Fin Bar“, which is highly recommended. So if you want to get some drinks just take a taxi or you stay a night at one of the cheap hostels arround Uluwatu, which you can easily reach by foot.
