It wasn’t planned in advance. But a couple of days in Uluwatu sounded like a good idea. And so it was. Our trip to Uluwatu started at El Kabron, which gave us a sunset to remember for life.

It’s one of those nice things about going on a longer holiday – the possibility not to plan everything in advance. Initially we had an idea of taking a day trip to Uluwatu. Start with a beach, go to a beach club for lunch. Leave to a second beach, and then travel back to our villa in Batu Belig. Then we came up with the idea to stay one night. Marianne booked us in at Suarga Padang Padang from the 13th to the 14th. But as we started thinking about it, we wanted to make it to nights, and since Suarga was fully booked on the 12th, we ended up staying one night at Wyndham Dreamland Resort Bali.

Expect driving from Batu Belig / Canggu / Seminyak to Uluwatu to take around 90 minutes.

Uluwatu

* Driving around in Bali is an experience in it self.

 

Uluwatu

* The distance between El Kabron, Wyndham and Suarga is not longer than your eyes can see. But the roads are not built to support the shortest distance.

 

Although we spent almost three full days in Uluwatu we did not see much of it. That will have to wait until next time. For this trip it was all about enjoying El Kabron and Suarga Padang Padang. And that we did. As much as we could.

We had booked a table for lunch, prior to the trip. But there was not a problem extending the stay. Not as long as you accept the minimum spending. And it was not a problem exceeding that. On the contrary. The food at El Kabron is really good. I must admit however I was a little bit disappointed by the fact that they did not have patatas bravas on the tapas menu.

Having said that, we had a fantastic day, and did not leave until the sun had set for the day. And what a sunset it was.

El Kabron

* El Kabron is made for extraordinary sunset experiences.

* El Kabron is perhaps not the typical “go to place” for kids, but Hedvig and Gustav had a great day.

* It’s not a big secret that El Kabron is a great place for “those Instagram-moments”. We had a few of our own.

* Off the cliff is Dreamland Beach. Hedvig and I went down there for a look. And although the beach was nice, we found it to be very crowded.

Note to self

Upon leaving El Kabron, we knew the distance from El Kabron to Wyndham Dreamland Resort Bali was short. But not as short as we learned upon leaving Wyndham. In stead of waiting 15 minutes for taxi and then driving for 15 minutes, we could have walked down to Dreamland Beach and then walked the two minutes from the beach and to Wyndham.

We had a great day at El Kabron.

I am sure you will not regret making a visit to El Kabron if you are going to Uluwatu.
