    Those are incredible!! We are planning on seeing Bali, hopefully in the next year or so. And that is a lot more than I thought we had to see on the island! How long would you say we need, to see everything you wrote about?

      Thank you for your comment, Laura. If you would like to visit only these places, I think 2 weeks would be sufficient. However, there are also a lot of more touristy places I didn’t mention. Personally, I could move in there and never get bored because there are so many things to do and experience 🙂

    What an amazing guide! I had gone to Bali and unfortunately one went to touristy spots like seminyak and Ubud. I would love to go back and see Suluban Cave.. it looked gorgeous!

    Oh. My. Gosh. Why does everyone only talk about the party and yoga scene in Bali (not that there’s anything wrong with those things)?? The beaches look lovely of course, but I’m really drawn to the waterfalls and caves as they add another dimension to what I had pictured Bali as previously. I can definitely see how digital nomads move there for years – there is so much to explore, I’d never want to leave either!

      Thank you, Diana. I’m really glad you liked these suggestions. There’s indeed a lot to see in Bali off-the-beaten-track

    This is a very comprehensive article. It is enlightening to know that you can get away from all the crowds etc in Bali. Can you stay close to Melasti Beach? My preference would also to spend time at Sideman before it becomes well known. Thanks for the great information.

    Apparently there are places in Bali that are still far from tourists. Don’t you think we need to keep it that way? Haha… Bhuana Sari Watefall is pretty and I want to visit Pemuteran and Melasti beaches. They still look pristine and far from crowded. We went to Suluban Cave two summers ago, and do you know that you can walk to the beach behind the cave when it’s low tide?

      That’s one good point 😀 Yes, that’s true- I remember I couldn’t do it a couple of years ago because of the water.

    I absolutely love your pictures from Bali! I fell in love with this place just by looking at them. I didn’t realize Bali gets so crowded. It’s good to know there are still a few places where you can get away from tourists. If I were to go I would surely choose to visit places like the Secret Gardens of Sambangan, or Melasti Beach.

    What a wonderful post! We have done Bali many times but always stuck ot the mainstream places, villas, shopping etc…. I did say that the next time we went back we would do more of the other stuff and you have just put that all perfectly in one post for me! Those waterfalls looks sublime and I didn’t know about the cave in Sulubhan.

    Just when I was planning for Bali, I came across this. I am interested in offbeat places like Sidemen, Sukawati Canyon, Amed beach, the mysterious Yeh Leh beach, the secret waterfalls, and more. How many days do you suggest to spend in Ubud so I can visit most of these? I am surely spending 2 night separately in Sidemen. But I want an idea for Ubud.

      Thank you, Shreya and I’m glad you could get some useful tips from this post. I think that all these places can be covered in 3-4 weeks but keep in mind that Bali has some other touristy places which are also pretty. I can’t get enough of it even after visiting so many times.

    I have been to the Suluban Cave and yes, I would have to agree that it is really a gem. The limestone formation makes it really unique and breathtaking. Can’t wait to be back soon.

    Now that’s a post I love! Every over crowded city has it’s secluded secret spots away from the tourists. I never gave much thought about Bali coz it’s just too touristy. Good to know of this lesser known Bali.
    Sambangan Gardens and Bhuana Sari Waterfalls would top my list within your list.
