Bukit is a 140sqkm rocky peninsula on Bali’s southernmost tip, characterised by a limestone plateau and dry, Savannah-type vegetation, ringed by steep limestone cliffs. Some parts of Bukit are sacred, particularly areas along the sheer Uluwatu cliffs and the Uluwatu Temple.
The peninsula boasts several world-renowned surf beaches, best left to more experienced surfers for the sharp reefs that lie below the pounding surf. The area is also known for some of the island’s most pristine – and secluded – white sand beaches and coves like Padang Padang, known for its shallow left-hand reef breaks. Bingin Beach, a stunning spot with powerful waves, and Balangan Beach, situated under a rocky hill, blessed with stunning views of the Indian Ocean, and another famous surf point. While Green Bowl, otherwise known as Hidden Beach, remains a true Balinese surf beach for adventurers and can be reached by a temple staircase, with a collection of caves at the bottom.
