Designed by an architect, experience nature like you’ve never done before by floating on the calm clear waters, the dense rainforest in the background just within your reach.

Apart from the pristine sandy beaches and the unforgettable sunset by the sea, many people forget that Bali contains the most beautiful waterfalls and crystal clear swimming holes.

They said you shouldn't go chasing waterfalls.. 😍🌈

Probably one of the ultimate favourite tourist waterfall spots in Bali, Tengenungan Waterfall is the go-to place if you would like to flaunt a little of that beach body you have been hiding, and have a stunning gush of water running down as your aesthetic background.

Following the signs 🌈

An OOTD beside the famous signboard of Tengenungan Waterfall works too if you don’t feel like heading into the water.

4. Tanah Lot Temple

The overwhelming beauty and serenity of Tanah Lot is mesmerising. This delicate and historic temple is located right on top of a 3-acre (1.2 hectare) rock, at a few minutes’ walk up from the coastal lip. However, do note that only Balinese people are allowed to enter. Tourists are still free to view and photograph the unique off-shore settings and sunset backdrop.

5. La Laguna Bali

If you have heard of the hipster bar La Favela, you would not want to miss La Laguna! This beach club cum restaurant is brought to you by the same eccentric and charming folks.

Get into your inner gypsy and enjoy the vintage decor that lines La Laguna! Pose with the gypsy caverns that look like they might have came straight out of a storybook - their efforts in making this place magical have definitely paid off.

The trick is finding this magical place and not getting lost - it is located very deep and can get confusing if you are unfamiliar with the place! Here’s our special advice: it is easier from the Berawa beach. Find it halfway between Batu Belig and Berawa Beach and walk over the big wooden bridge. All successful adventurers will tend to take a victory OOTD of them entering La Laguna, so don’t miss out on that too!

La Laguna Bali

Address: Jalan Pantai Kayu Putih, Berawa, Canggu, Bali, 80361, Indonesia

Opening Hours: 11am - 12am daily

Access: 10 minutes’ walk from Jalan Batu Belig

Laze the day away while being half immersed in the stunning 30-metre (98 feet) infinity pool. Bob your head to the pumping music from the underwater speakers, Finn’s Beach Club has everything you need to experience more of paradise Bali.

In Bali we do yoga every morning 🐒🌾 #Uluwatu #Bali @finnsbeachclub

A photo posted by JULIE NERVIK (@jnervik) on

A bikini-clad OOTD on the aesthetic white sand beaches is more than enough - but if you are feeling a bit more adventurous - a Yoga pose will do just the trick too.

Say goodbye to the sun as it slowly sets, and admire the majestic view of stunning Bali. With the glimmering glow of the lanterns against the lavender sky, who can resist not snapping a picture?

8. The Dusty Cafe

A post shared by THE DUSTY CAFE (@dustycafe) on

Despite being one of the smallest cafes in Bali, this newly opened hipster cafe is quite popular and has been receiving good feedback from its customers.

Dusty generally serves a small menu of healthy colourful food. Enjoy these tasty but healthy foods and snap a few for the ‘food porn’ section of your feed.

9. Bali Boat Shed

Summer clothes all year 😍

A photo posted by KATT VALDEZ (@kattvaldez) on

Now that you are experiencing the island life, it is a must to dress like an islander too! The bright and colourful interiors of Bali Boat Shed are always inviting, so step into fashion galore to see what else Bali has in store for you!

Details details details. So happy I have an equal in my life who loves walking the streets of new countries as much as I do.

A photo posted by Fiona + Bobby Photography (@fionaandbobby) on

This vibrant store sells both male and female outfits, so feel free to drag in your dad/brother or boyfriend if they insist on standing outside. The multi-coloured shack houses are not only quirky for an OOTD or candid shot, but also interesting if you play with various angles.

Apart from the colourful walls, a small bench can also be found right outside the shop. Sitting on the bench for a picture is way too mainstream we find, so how about standing beside it with a casual pose?

Bali Boat Shed

Address: Jl. Laksamana Basangkasa No.55, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

Price: Outfits from 10 USD

10. Motel Mexicola

Colourful and quirky Motel Mexicola is a Mexican bar and restaurant you should visit if you would like to see some neon lights and unique architecture on your feed.

The interior of #MotelMexicola absolutely blew my mind 😍 already missing Bali...but starting that photo spam 🙊📷

A photo posted by ✌🏼️ Karlee (@derpdork) on

It gets more happening at night, as customers are allowed to rave to the thump-stopping music under the neon lights and (to us) scary decorations. Take a gothic picture behind all the darkness and lights, it’s not every time you get to visit such a cool motel.

Motel Mexicola, you were a dream come true! #Bali

A photo posted by Melody (@meowiie) on

Still, none can deny the stunning interior of Motel Mexicola. If you are the kind to enjoy capturing the minor details in every picture, Motel Mexicola during the day with a cold coconut will do just fine.

Motel Mexicola

Address: Jalan Kayu Jati No. 9X, Seminyak, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

And as much as we love to go on, we can’t because then the list will never stop. Life in Bali is beauty in every corner, and it is really a shame if a photo is not taken to commemorate how stunning and gorgeous this tropical haven is. It is not wrong to hashtag ‘paradise’ for every picture that is related to Bali, for if Bali isn’t paradise we don’t know what is.
