|Sunset in Bali|
As far as I remember, I've always loved watching the skies change colour during sun rising and sun setting. It just feels magical to me. I don't really get to see sunrise a lot though, since I go to bed every night (or morning?) just few hours before the sun appears on the horizon.
Watching sunset is a "must do" for almost all visitors to Bali. And because I live in Bali, I have the privilege to experience gorgeous sunset moment almost everyday. Not necessarily watching the sundown below the horizon. The beautiful gradients in the sky colour is enough to mesmerise me.
I love watching sunset from a secluded place where I can sit in peace and absorb the moment without too many people around. So while these famous places in Bali are beautiful, some of them are not on my favourite list to catch the sunset.
I have to admit that it's on top of my least favourite beach in Bali. In fact I avoid this area at all cost. In my opinion, Kuta is just way too crowded and noisy. If you're a party person, there...you will love this area. But if you want to experience the real Bali such as its culture, it's better to explore other areas. Please don't judge Bali if the only place you've been is Kuta. Trust me, Bali has so much more to offer :)
A place that's famous for seafood dinner by the beach. There are many restaurants to choose which serve equally same seafood menu. The ambiance is pretty good here for a romantic candle light dinner. My favourite spot for sunset in Jimbaran is next to Kedonganan traditional fish market which is less crowded.
One of most popular places in Bali to watch sunset. Famous for its temple, Tanah Lot is visited by tons of tourists everyday. When it's not cloudy, you will enjoy a stunning sunset here.
Pura Luhur Uluwatu
Gorgeous scenery with a temple on the edge of steep cliff. It's one of most important temples in Bali. You can watch Kecak dance which perform every day at 6pm while the sun setting. Oh by the way, beware of those naughty monkeys!
|NO! of course they are not the monkeys I was talking about :p|
Known as Turtle island it's a small island not far from Sanur. I think not too many tourists visit this island where you can find a turtle conservation centre. I found a spot here where it feels so serene and the sky is beautiful during the sun setting. Also a great spot to watch moonrise.

A black sand beach just 15 minutes away from Sanur area. Located on highway of Profesor Ida Bagus Mantra.
Located at the southern tip of Bali. There's one place called Waterblow which is actually a great place to
watch sunrise. But I like being here for sunset too, even though I can't see the sun setting but usually the sky turns into stunning colour after the sun disappears.

A beach that lately has been so famous for a pre-wedding or fashion spread photo shoot. It used to be a hidden beach before. Where you can enjoy magnificent sunset with no one else around but now it's getting quite crowded specially on the weekends. Located near to Ayana Resort.
Watu Klotok Beach
I've just found this hidden beach last week on the way home from Kesumba beach. I was driving along the highway of Profesor Ida Bagus Mantra when I saw a signboard pointing to this beach. I didn't expect to see a sunset here because this beach in on east side of Bali. Turned out it was one of most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen in Bali
