Bukit Peninsula has always offered a more rustic experience with its own unique culture. And of course, it is famous for its surfing waves. This is not the place for those that are looking for crowds, packed nightclubs, and a resort type of getaway. This is the place for those that want to experience the true essence of what Bali has to offer. Away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place to truly get away from it all.
For a long time, Bukit Peninsula has avoided growth, but now even Bukit has experienced the development bug, especially in charming Uluwatu.
This is a great area to rent a beautiful villa – we aren’t talking just any villa. These villas are equipped with private pools, beautiful furnishings, all of the amenities, and even your own staff. Relax, enjoy, re-energize.
And of course, what would a visit to Bukit Peninsula be without a little surfing. In fact, this is where die-hard surfers head to find that “perfect wave” that is ever so elusive, but worth the wait.
This is an area that is seeking to balance the preservation of its culture while still inviting tourists to explore what the area has to offer. In 2001, Bali enjoyed more than a million visitors, and in just a decade, those numbers have doubled. Bali has many cultural treasures that make it unique and that is what must be preserved. The Bali government works to ensure these balances are put into place and that includes controlling the amount of resort development.
If you are looking for more of a local experience, if you are hoping to get away from the urban scene and the tourist traps, and you love what Mother Nature brings to the culture, you are going to love Bukit Peninsula. In fact, this great little secret is worth seeing sooner rather than later, because as with everything, once the secret is out and tourists flock to the area, it is certain to change.
