bali itinerary: 4 days romantic getaway for couples | day 1 bali itinerary: tanah lot and kuta beach

Start your day by visiting the iconic Tanah Lot Temple, a beautiful 16th century shrine set on an offshore rock in azure blue ocean waters. Meaning “Land in the Sea”, Tanah Lot is part of a chain of seven sea temples that spiritually protect Bali. It is just 30km from Denpasar, or less than an hour’s drive from Seminyak or Kuta. Do visit the temple early to avoid hordes of tourists as it can get very crowded, especially during sunset. However, if you’re willing to brave the crowds, sunsets from Tanah Lot are breathtaking as the brilliant setting sun creates the silhouette of the temple. What’s more romantic than that?

Afterwards, head down to Kuta’s Made’s Warung to satisfy those hunger pangs after a morning of exploring Tanah Lot. Originally opened in 1969 as a street-food stall, Made’s Wurang has expanded to Seminyak and now have an extensive menu serving sumptuous Indonesian, Western and even Japanese food.

Spend the afternoon familiarizing yourself with the streets of Kuta, including Kuta Beachwalk, Kuta Square and Kuta Art Market. At Kuta Beachwalk, you and your loved one will find numerous international brands like Versace and Armani but also Balinese designer boutiques. Check out the west Kuta Square for surfwear and swimming apparel or east Kuta Square for a quick bite or a refreshing fruit juice. Kuta Art Market, just 200m from Kuta Square, is where you’ll find a bunch of souvenirs for gifts.

If you’re feeling adventurous, head down to Kuta Beach where you’ll find numerous surfing schools like Pro Surf School and Odysseys Surf School. Kuta’s waves are suitable for both beginners and advanced surfers alike. Alternatively, enjoy a romantic stroll along the beach or bob along the waves.

Make your way to Jimbaran for a mouth-watering dinner by the sunset. You’ll love the gorgeous view and fresh seafood at Made Bagus Café or Akua Bali Restaurant. Additionally, Jimbaran Bay is full of delightful seafood options.
