Day 6

Paddle-Boarding - Uluwatu - Sanur

(B/L/D)

Breakfast will be served at the hotel. You will then be picked up for your transfer to the day’s first activity: a stand-up paddle-boarding lesson. A trendy new sport that has recently arrived in Bali from Hawaii, stand-up paddle-boarding (or SUP) is suitable for everybody.

SUP can be practiced on shallow water and without waves and does not require surfing experience. As it involves both strength and endurance, the sport is also a good alternative to other health-promoting activities such as jogging, hiking and climbing. And, because it is practiced on water, it has a relaxing and almost meditative quality. Afterwards, you will head to a local restaurant for a healthy lunch.

Return to the hotel before the afternoon excursion which is a visit to one of Bali’s most scenic temples, Pura Luhur Uluwatu. One of the nine key directional temples, Pura Luhur Uluwatu is majestically perched on the edge of a steep cliff 70 meters above sea level. In the evening you will witness a performance of Bali's famous Kecak Dance. This almost hypnotic dance-drama is based on an ancient Balinese ritual. A large group all-male performers sit on the ground in a circle and sway with the rhythm as they repeatedly chant 'chark-a, chark-a, chark-a'.

Afterward, a drive to Jimbaran for a BBQ seafood dinner under the stars on one of Bali’s glorious beaches. The seafood warung will serve an enticing platter of prawns, grilled fish, squid, clams and shellfish, accompanied by rice, vegetables and sambal (spicy hot chili sauce).
