The Gate to Heaven Bali


 

The Gate to Heaven Bali at Ini Vie Villa

You all are not unfamiliar with this Instagramable picture on the top left side of this article, are you? Well, yes, you all must have known this picture, since a lot of travel bloggers pose their best movement before they post their memories in this well-known spot. Lempuyang Temple that is how people call this place. Located in Tista Village, Abang District, Karangasem Regency of Bali especially in the most eastern part of Bali, the beauty of this popular temple is just undeniable.

 

 

Lempuyang temple itself is one of the parts of Sad Kahyangan Temples in Bali, meanwhile the other ones include Goa Lawah Temple, Besakih Temple, Uluwatu Temple, Batukaru Temple and Pusering Jagat Temple. Established by Mpu Kuturan in 11 AD, Lempuyang temple comprises 1700 staircases and  it is divided into 3 (three) main areas, namely:

 

  • Jabe Pisan (the part when you find the white candi bentar): you can spot some Bale (Balinese Gazebo or Pavilion) or even Bale Gong and Kulkul (Balinese traditional music).

 

  • Jaba Tengah (the three area with whitely painted portal): the part of Jaba tengah, especially the central area or portal is the area where sacred objects and offerings can pass during religious ceremony.

 

  • Jeroan: this is the most sacred and holy area of Lempuyang Temple. You can spot Pelinggih or Meru when you come to this area and usually becomes a place where Hindu communities worship The God.

 

 

Since this is a temple (a place where Hindu worshippers pray), this means that this place is considered as a holy place and you are forbidden to come inside when you are (especially women) in your monthly period time. Besides, you are not allowed to flirt, kiss, say something rude or do something that is dirty at this place. In addition, mind your dress code and dress politely, plus please do bring your own sarong or kamben when you get into Lempuyang Temple. Sarong is fabric that wrapped around the waist to ankle and usually you can also wear scarf in your waist if you wear sarong when visiting Temples in Bali. You could also rent the sarong if you don’t have it yourself. You are also prohibited to go inside the temple if you bring foods.

 

 

If you wish to visit this place, keep in mind that Lempuyang Temple is far from Denpasar and Kuta, besides the fact that the weather here is cool since this temple is 600 meters above the sea level. To get to this spot, it takes for about 2 hours from Ubud and more than 2 hours from Denpasar. The best time to go here is during sunrise, but how why? Well because if you expect to capture lots of moments here, you must arrive here earlier in the morning to avoid the crowd of visitors. The best time to enjoy the beauty of this place is before 9 in the morning (if you wish to get first-hand experience to watch sunset and feel the fresher balmy weather around that surrounds the temple) or after 3 in the late afternoon (for the ones who choose to capture the wonderful sunset view). Remember that your journey to arrive at Lempuyang Temple wouldn’t be as easy as you may think. It is recommended that you rent a car or if you wish you could consider riding your motorbike to get here.

 

So what you think? Does spend some of your time at Lempuyang Temple worth it? The answer is “Yes! It does. 110% worth it”.

Lawar and Babi Guling in Bali


 

Lawar and Babi Guling in Bali at Ini Vie Villa

The word “Lawar” might seem quite familiar for Balinese. Yes, this food has always been one of the most popular cuisines in Bali. In Galungan Day, some families feast and in many other Balinese rituals, you can hardly see Lawar is not served. In fact, you don’t have to wait for this food to be served until Galungan Day comes. If you are curious with the taste of Lawar, you can spot Lawar sellers easily spread on streets, markets and traditional Balinese Warung around Bali.

 

 

This famous Balinese food typically consists of some vegetables (like long beans) and chopped meat (chicken, pork) added by shrimp paste, chilis, turmeric, galangal and other traditional Balinese spices.

 

 

There are some selections of Lawar that you usually discover when you visit Bali, such as:

  1. Lawar Putih

This type of Lawar is the among the most common one, which made of grated coconut, meat added by vegetables and some spices like turmeric, chilli, pepper, shrimp paste and other types of Balinese traditional spices that we usually name it as “Basa Genep”.

 

  1. Lawar Barak

People call it Lawar Barak (Barak means Red in Balinese), due to the red color of this Lawar. Lawar Barak mainly made of chopped meat (it can be chicken or pork), vegetables, coconut and Balinese special spices added by raw meat blood (chicken or pork). The red color of this Lawar is mostly produced from the meat blood that is poured into this Lawar.

 

  1. Vegetable Lawar

If you are familiar with this flavored Lawar, this selection of Lawar usually made of long chopped bean added by Jackfruit or sometimes added by mango or other vegetables

 

 

Apart from these 3 types of Lawar, you may also discover other selections of Lawar in Bali, since restaurants and Lawar sellers try to offer some variations of ingredients added to Lawar to match it with their customers’ preferences.

 

 

Whenever you want to taste Lawar, you also may find Sate Lilit and Suckling Pig (Babi Guling) served along with Lawar itself. Balinese Sate Lilit is made of skewered grilled meat.  The word “Lilit” itself means to wrap around, in which it refers to the minced meat that is wrapped around the satay skewers. Travelers that come to Bali might taste Satay that made of grilled and skewered chicken or pork, and sometimes added by irresistible peanut sauce or chili sauce on it. In fact, if you expect to try Sate Lilit, you are not going to spot peanut sauce on it, instead, it is normally served with sambal or chili sauce.

 

 

Meanwhile Suckling Pig or we call it “Babi Guling” is a roasted pork usually concocted with typical Balinese spices like turmeric, black pepper, garlic and other Balinese traditional spices or usually known as “Basa Genep”. Originally Babi Guling is used as offerings for The God during Hindu Ceremonies, as a symbol of abundance shown by the Pork. The pork itself is slow-roasted in open fire until the meat is crispy and juicy. When it is served, Babi Guling is sliced into thin pieces of meat along with the aroma of Basa Genep in its juicy meat. Nowadays Babi Guling is widely known all over Bali and can be found during Balinese traditional ceremonies or in food stalls called “Warung Babi Guling”.

Nyepi Day


 

Nyepi Day at Ini Vie Villa

Nyepi Day

Every once in a year, Hindu Communities in Bali celebrate Nyepi Day or known as Balinese New Year (celebrated based on The Balinese Saka Calendar), in which the word “Nyepi” means to keep silent. It is usually celebrated after the spring equinox’s darkmoon when the duration of nighttime and daytime is approximately equal. During this Nyepi day, The Island of Bali usually stops all the activities for 24 hours. Therefore, it should be noted that all travelers that come to Bali during this Nyepi day should be aware that Bali becomes completely silent. All shops are closed, streets are deserted, I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport is also closed, all people turns off lights at home, no pedestrians are allowed to stay outside and all the noise should be lowered to its lowest level. During this Nyepi day, the atmosphere of tranquillity and peace enshroud Bali, making it feel like The Island of Paradise.

 

The purpose of Nyepi Day is to create deeper connection with the God (Ida Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa) through fasting, praying, and meditating while also reflecting on ourselves to improve value and love in creating peaceful life. Before the Nyepi Day comes, there are strings of ceremonies that should be held by Hindu communities in Bali.

 

The first ceremony is Melasti. Melasti or mekiis is usually conducted two or three days before Nyepi Day and its purpose is to conduct purification for Bhuana Agung (The Universe) and Bhuana Alit (Human Nature). Hindu communities in Bali usually bring Pratima (which is usually believed as the manifestation of the God) and all the effigies of Lord Ida Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa to the sea and purify it with colorful and long ceremonies.

 

A day after melasti or a day before the Nyepi Day usually named as “Pengerupuk”. All villages in Bali usually hold ceremonies in their villages’ main crossroads, which are believed as the places of all demons like to stay. On this day, villages in Bali hold ceremonies to chase away the evil forces or known as Bhuta Kala that is described as a giant and scary creature and likes to bother human’s life. All these evil forces or Bhuta Kala are manifested by Ogoh-Ogoh (The Giant Puppet) that is brought and paraded on the street by lots of people during this “Pengerupuk” day. Well-known Ogoh-Ogoh parade usually held on “Pengerupuk” Day normally starts at 5 or 6 pm by men in all villages in Bali accompanied by Gamelan music, kulkul (traditional bamboo musical instrument). Each village usually produces its own ogoh-ogoh a few months before Nyepi day comes, through support from local boys and older men in designing it. This Ogoh-ogoh usually can be up to 25 feet tall, and is decorated with colorful paint, and clothing to make it looks similar with Bhuta Kala. Travelers that come to Bali can make this as a wonderful attraction while experiencing their true Nyepi Day.

 

This ogoh-ogoh parade is also followed by Pecaruan offering, and Tawur Kesange, which are rituals to win the battle over Bhuta Khala and evil forces that disturb humans in creating peaceful life. This offering usually made of animals such as ducks, pigs, chicken and also added by plants, fruits, and crops. After the parade is done, usually Ogoh-Ogoh is burned into ashes, which symbolizes vanished Bhuta Kala and Evil Forces. In addition, on Pengerupuk day, Hindu families in Bali chase away all the evil forces and spirits (bhuta kala) around their houses by using pots, pans and clank it repeatedly along with torch made of fiery bamboo.

 

A day after “Pengerupuk” day is when the silent mode in Bali happens.

On this Nyepi Day, it is obligatory to meditate and do the catur brata penyepian. This Catur Brata Penyepian usually consists of:

 

  1. Amati Karya (no work or any significant physical activities)

Besides not allowed to go out, Hindu people in Bali are forbidden to do physical activities or go to work, or what we call as “Amati Lelungan” on Nyepi Day. Hindu communities are encouraged to meditate and do more of spiritual activities on this day in celebrating the Balinese Hindu New Year.

 

  1. Amati Lelungan (no travelling)

Streets are completely deserted on Nyepi day, since “Amati Lelungan” means that no one is permitted to go outside. Travelers cannot wander around the streets or plan to have fun at the beach on this day. There will be “Pecalang” that will be ready to make sure that all is well and no one is on the street on Nyepi Day.

 

  1. Amati Lelanguan (No merrymaking)

Hindu communities are also not allowed to have much self-entertainment and create much noise on Nyepi Day. Therefore, travelers that come to Bali should be aware that during this day, their mobile internet connection runs slowly and some local TV stations will be turned down.

 

  1. Amati Geni (No fire)

Hindu communities in Bali are not allowed to lit any fire or turn on the lamp during Nyepi day, this is what we call as “Amati Geni” in Catur Brata Penyepian. Bali usually becomes completely dark all day long, since all shops, hotels and buildings need to turn off all the lamps during this day. Travelers that come to Bali need to make sure that they do not turn on the lamp on this day.

 

A day after Nyepi day is called “Ngembak Geni” when Hindu communities can go out and visit their families, friends and relatives to strengthen the value of peaceful life. Hindu people usually also visit some tourism places with their families or friends to enjoy Ngembak Geni Day.

Followed by empty our bladder and wash our body thoroughly from head to toe before start to floats. On floating process, we’ll get in float tank in a dark room. The tank contains 650 kg of Epsom salt, saturated into 1200 litres of water, about 11 inches deep. This creates highly buoyant water that creates an experience similar to that of floating in the Dead Sea and float effortlessly on the surface of the water and feeling completely weightless. During the floating, a relaxation music and light on the tank will accompany. On the first 10 minutes, we might strive to get the concentration but after several minutes later we’ll immerse with calmness and feel the therapy. 

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFIT FOR US?

As we mentioned earlier, floating has multiple-benefit for mind and body. For mind, it will help to manage stress reduction. Floating will give the mind a short pause from the outside world, allowing instant inner peace. This is an effective way to treat pain and treat stress-related illness.  Another beneficial is improve our sleep quality. It can restores and refreshes the senses, leaving one rested, relaxed and able to forget about those worries and finally enjoy a good night’s sleep problems. Another favorable things is increase creativity and gain mental clarity as it will clear our mind of clutter and stress. An increase in motivation and the refreshing experience gives a renewed energy.

New Restaurants in Legian and Seminyak This Month


 

New Restaurants in Legian and Seminyak This Month at Ini Vie Villa

Legian and Seminyak were fast becoming the epicentre for epic new restaurants in Bali, this month’s lineup of hot new tables comes rolling in. A heady mixture of wild and wonderful new concepts right across the island, this month we have radical, retro, and psychedelic vibes in both Legian and Seminyak. 

 

Warung Chickpea – Seminyak

An Ottolenghi-inspired Middle Eastern restaurant tucked away in the back streets of Seminyak, Warung Chickpea is not typical Indonesian warung. For starters, this fresh, healthy and downright delicious lunch spot is helmed by Australian chef Nick Philips, and this kitchen genius uses local produce, spices and charcoal grilling to whip up a spread of dishes designed to pick and choose from Nasi Campur-style. You won’t find any rich Rendang or oily Nasi Goreng here however. Instead, expect light and zesty marinated pomelo, a chilli, cauliflower and chickpea salad, charred broccoli and lemon tahini, and Turkish-style lamb kofta with pomegranate molasses. You’ll want to arrive early too, as lunches starts at 11.30am and lasts only until everything is sold out. 

 

Brunch Club – Legian

If you are a sucker for a great brunch, well, welcome to the club. Brunch Club in Legian is where fellow pancake and coffee connoisseurs can gather to graze on all-time brunch favourites: Melbourne-style eggs, fluffy waffles, fruity smoothie bowls and smashed avo, alongside lunch staples like big burgers, toasted sarnies, loaded salads and pizzas. To really make the most of this munching marathon, the restaurant is a large, two-floor building dressed in traditional Balinese temple brick, concealing a Melbourne-style café downstairs. Wall murals are as colourful as the cocktails they serve, while a full length, spray-cooled roof terrace features a separate pizza kitchen for all-day grazing. And because no brunch is complete without great coffee, at Brunch Club you’ll also find carefully selected blends that have been expertly roasted on the island, served exactly as you take it.

The Pontiac Stardust – Seminyak

Described as a cosmic road trip through 1950s/60s Palm Springs, The Pontiac Stardust is a progressive cocktail bar inspired by the art and energy of mid-century modern Palm Springs. A culture not a concept, this wild and wonderful new bar is helmed by award-winning bartender, Beckaly Franks – the first female mixologist to win the prestigious 42 Below Cocktail World Cup, and owner of the multi award-winning Pontiac in Hong Kong. It goes without saying then, that the cocktails here are second to none try the P.O.G. Daiquiri or the Snake in the Grass if you don’t believe and the bar food is equally as epic. Inspired by food truck fare from California, Miami, Seattle and New York, expect to see a big Burger, the kielbasa sausage Dog, the Personal Pizza and Fries, loaded with Sriracha mayonnaise and parmesan. And did we mention, there’s also a vintage photo booth here, a transcendent soundtrack of desert rock meets upbeat bpm, and even a fairy-lit Teepee under the stars on the patio where the occasional reiki and tarot reading takes place. Welcome to The Pontiac Stardust.

The islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan lay just off the South East coast of Bali and offer some of the best diving in Indonesia as well as the possibility of diving with Manta Rays. The other great thing about this trip is the shorter transfer times and included a free extra dive.

What to Know Before We Go to Bali


 

What to Know Before We Go to Bali at Ini Vie Villa

Before we arrive, ensure to know the uniqueles of The Island of Gods. Here, we try to give some information that essential. A small things with tremendous impact for the best getaway such as a wide range of transportation, must-try local cuisine and several tricks to getting the best out of a trip to Bali.

 

1. Rent A Scooter

Bestowed with the enchanting of nature, Bali is full with mesmerizing place like no other. From lush greenery jungle in the northern, and pristine beach in the southernmost. Nonetheless, it is not easy to find a public transportation in Bali, whether it was limited or many places are unreachable with such a public transportation. That’s why rent a scooter is recommended one and that will be beneficial as we can go anywhere with flexibility. Just keep in mind that Indonesia using left track and bring also international driving license while driving. The price for rent a scooter might be varied and approximately IDR 80 thousand or around US$ 6-7 per day. The price may getting cheaper for weekly and monthly rent. As easy as getting the accommodation, we could rent a scooter in hotel, villa and nearby.


 

2. Get Local Sim Cards

As soon as we arrived we might feel terrible without phone and internet access. Just stay calm as Indonesia is one of the modest price country for phone and internet services. But, avoid to get the Sim Cards in the airport as it slightly more expensive. On a way to  accommodation, try to find authorized Sim Cards center such as Telkomsel, Indosat, XL and 3 for best price and services either on supermarket nor recognized shop.

 

3. Taste Some Delicious Indonesian Food

Bali has always been known as The Island of Paradise that encompass  natural beauty and culinary activity. Here, we can get glorious food, rich of nutrition, which part of the culture in the past and present. Try a Babi Guling, a roasted pig that became one of the most quintessential dining experience for Balinese. In the past, a Babi Guling feast was usually reserved for big rite of passage celebrations such as wedding and funerals. Today, the delicious taste of Babi guling is already spread out and because of mass tourism it is become must-try food while staying in Bali. Another options is Ayam Betutu, a steamed chicken mixed with red chilli peppers, onion slices,  coconut oil and anothers condiment. Similar to Baby Guling, we can easily find it in luxury hotels and local restaurants.

 

4. Get Experience of Floating Breakfast at Private Villa

It is unclear since when floating breakfast has been discovered but this morning routine are keep popping up. Above all, there are some villas that become a trendsetter of floating breakfast that gone viral, such as Ini Vie Villa in Legian.

Everything was so nicely presented including the floating breakfast to pampering the visitors. The floating breakfast that consist of bread, local or western cuisine, hot beverage are served on the floating tray.


5. Download Handy Mobile Application

Either of Go-Jek or Uber are imperative mobile application that we must have while staying in Bali. We can order an online transportation, order some meal and stuffs and even a massage services to our room just in one touch. It was handy and so instrumental. Oftentimes we’ll stuck in the traffic congestion in Bali and online transportation were beneficial. All that we need to do just in one click. Order for transportation, wait and sit as the driver take us to the place we want, and no need to worry of lost. These application also complemented with e-money so that we can chain on several mini market and supermarket by only scanning the bar.

SANA VIE VILLA, SEMINYAK, BALI by THE WANDERFULLY LOST


 

SANA VIE VILLA, SEMINYAK, BALI by THE WANDERFULLY LOST at Ini Vie Villa

During our most recent trip to Bali, Cam and I had the blessing of staying at one of the most beautiful villas in Seminyak: Sana Vie Villa. I had been looking at this place online for so long before the trip and was so happy that we had the opportunity to stay there as it is totally gorgeous, take a look for yourself!

It is located very close to the central area of Seminyak, with countless restaurants, beach bars, boutiques and markets around to keep you busy. We hired a motorbike from the villa for our period of time there and it was just so easy to get around on, even though it was so tempting to spend our time lazing around the pool.

When we arrived at the villa we were presented with a tasty  fresh coconut drink while we checked in and settled into our stunning room. I really love that places in Bali add these little extra touches to make your experience more enjoyable!

One of the things that had caught my eye about this villa were the cool floating breakfast trays! Waking up in the morning and having brekkie in the pool to cool off from the warmth of the balinese morning was so heavenly. We had to pay a little extra to have the floating tray each morning but it was SO worth it.

BALI TRAVEL BLOG : SANA VIE VILLA


 

BALI TRAVEL BLOG : SANA VIE VILLA at Ini Vie Villa

Whenever I go to Bali I love to mix up my accommodation and spend some time in hotels as well as villas. I’ve talked about it before and I’m still cant decide which type of accom I like more. During this trip I spent a couple of nights staying at the Sana Vie Villa, click the link below to read more about the villa & my stay.

  

 

Sana Vie Villa is located in Seminyak, its a little bit of a walk out of the main Seminyak square area so I would recommend making use of the Villa’s shuttle service (or hiring a scooter which you can do from reception). The villa feels like its brand new, and they’ve really put a lot of thought into the facilities and design (there’s even a tv in the toilet). Sana Vie is a massive one bedroom villa, that has a huge bedroom area with two couches with a walk through wardrobe to the bathroom & semi outdoor shower. There is a little kitchen area and deck outside, with the swimming pool in the middle. The hammock located over the pool towards the back of the villa was the perfect little resting spot.

The villa offers a wide range of breakfast options, including the popular “floating breakfasts” which are popping up all over Instagram, I 10/10 recommend you try this option at least once. I had the waffles both mornings because they were so yum! I also stayed in one night and had room service, the chicken pad Thai was delicious!!

  

Sana Vie Villa also offer some super cute stuff as well as the floating breakfast such as hiring big floaties for your pool or arranging flower baths, candles, champgane & flowers for those planing a romantic proposal (don’t worry I’m still single). I had a cute little flower bath by the pool, which you can see in the photo above

6 Great Apps For Your Bali Trip


 

6 Great Apps For Your Bali Trip at Ini Vie Villa

Apps to help you in Bali

 

Here’s a shortlist of great apps to have for your trip to Bali, ranging from those that help you in booking the right Bali hotel that fits your budget and preferences, map apps to help you navigate your way from the beach to a nearby bar or restaurant, to apps that will help you be an instant billionaire (or more accurately, offer you currency exchange rates into rupiah). These apps are available for both Android and iPhone users, from either Google’s Play Store or Apple’s App Store on iTunes, respectively. You can easily and freely install and try them out before your trip, too. For mobile internet in Bali, don’t expect (free) Wi-Fi access with blazing speeds to be present everywhere. It’s a great idea to switch your smartphone’s home SIM card to a prepaid local network provider’s – it’s much cheaper. Reliable providers with widest coverage are Indosat and Telkomsel (with 4G speeds available). Preloaded SIMs with call and data credit values start from IDR 100,000 (USD 8) and are widely sold at the airport, convenience stores and supermarkets. These come in Standard SIM sizes, mostly with convenient pop-out options for both Micro and Nano SIMs as well.
 

1. Hotels.com

While you can easily browse through our Bali portal for the best selection of hotels in Bali, be it a luxury 5-star resort in Nusa Dua, a budget guesthouse in Ubud or a well-appointed villa in Seminyak, you can browse through the whole Hotels.com inventory of hotels on the dedicated mobile app, available for both Android and iOS. The Hotels.com app is fast and simple, allowing you to plan your next Bali holiday with variety of filtering options. By logging in, you can save your hotel preferences, and even further benefit by getting exclusive deals or rewards. Most importantly, your bookings are secure.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hcom.android
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hotels.com-hotel-booking-last/id284971959?mt=8


2. Waze

Navigation apps are aplenty, with many preferring Google Maps over any other available. However, Waze is a great community driven alternative which provides turn-by-turn navigation, with great emphasis on real and live routing input by real drivers who can share information on current traffic jams, detours (which are frequent in Bali), and many others. Waze also has social network integration, so you can also send live updates with your ETA to friends, who have already arrived at the beach club, for instance.  

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.waze
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/waze-gps-navigation-maps-social/id323229106?mt=8


3. GoJek


This transport and delivery app was started up by Indonesian developers and is widely used, with over 250,000 motorcycle taxi drivers. You can order a motorcycle taxi or conventional taxi ride (GoJek expanded their services by collaborating with Blue Bird, a reputable taxi operator in Indonesia), browse through the great selection of restaurants and businesses with food delivery right to your villa. You can create a shopping checklist for groceries, and even order a spa therapist for your in-villa treatment, too! English language is an available option.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gojek.app
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/id/app/go-jek/id944875099?mt=8

 

4. Google Translate


Knowing some simple local phrases can get you out of tight situations, such as asking for directions or haggling at the art market. This web-based mobile app simplifies the user experience of the desktop version. Although the translation of long contexts can result in weird sentences most of the time, you can always get your way with the closest approximate Indonesian phrases to score a good bargain for that nice painting or knick-knack that caught your eye.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.translate
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-translate/id414706506?mt=8

 

5. XE Currency

When you need to change your dollars into rupiah, this app can be quite handy in finding out the most current global rates out there. You can convert any currency with XE Currency. The app can store your last updated search, and its conversions can still work if you lose your data signal. You can personalise your settings, set the frequency of live rate updates, and even create alerts so you keep notified as you go. It’s especially good to use to compare what’s being offered at the currency exchange chart. Don’t worry, discrepancies in tens or hundreds of rupiah is still acceptable.  

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xe.currency
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xe-currency/id315241195?mt=8

 

6. MSW Surf Forecast

Many come to Bali for the world class surf… and this mobile app is just great for getting up-to-date info. From Magic Seaweed, one of the most reliable and updated worldwide surf reports, this app provides you with detailed surf forecasts in almost every popular surfing destination around the globe – Bali included. Forecasts include surf ratings, swell sizes, periods and wave heights, wind strength and directions, and temperature. Above all, there’s forecast accuracy in percentages, and you can sneak peek what it’ll be like in up to a week, so you can easily plan ahead before taking your board.
