You could go on a relaxing date or even end up taking a beat after all the sightseeing you’ve been doing too. Be sure to take many pictures, because this is not something you can get everywhere.
- Visit the Broken Sea, Pasih Uwug – if you’re wondering how it got the name, then sit tight as I tell you why. So originally it was a cave and the floor of the cave collapsed creating the arch that we see today. This hole allows the ocean waters to flow freely, making its way to the gorgeous natural pool on the other side. Enjoy the breathtaking views and take a few snaps to capture this beauty.
- Nothing like a Secret Getaway at the Angel’s Billabong- one among the marvelous natural infinity pools, is the Angel’s Billabong of Nusa dua where you can see the crystalline waters.

- Learn how to Make Salt from Seawater, Amed sea salt farm- along Jalan Abang, not far from Selang Beach is where you can witness traditional salt farmers process seawater into salt. However this is not something that you need to learn to survive but the beauty of the work can be admired from distance. poured into hollowed coconut tree trunks, the seawater is dried under the sun,the crystallized salt is then harvested with a pair of bamboo ladles once the seawater has evaporated. You can get lucky and take home some samples too!
- Hug, pull, and kiss, Omed-omedan- well, take every day with a bit of love and coffee they said. Looks like Bali had other ideas with their mass hugging and kissing ritual. The village of Banjar Kaja Sesetan practices Omed-omedan, where hugging and pulling between two groups of young people is a ritual. Held on the day after Nyepi, this ritual is where two groups i.e boys and girls will be created and the pair of boy and girl in front have to hug each other with the rest of the group trying to separate them and if they fail to separate them then they will face the splash of water from the village council.
