Tour of South Kuta

Yesterday I got in on a car rental tour of South Kuta / Uluwatu area. Between 6 people it came to 85k each including parking/tolls. The driver was cool and easy going, took us to wherever people wanted to go. This ended up being a bunch of beachs, until the Uluwatu Temple for sunset.

Here's the GPS trace.

We went to Dreamland beach, which was fairly busy, not particularly special. Plenty of places selling food; I had a coconut. Then Belawan beach where the sea was crystal clear blue/green, the rock formations were cool, and it wasn't so crowded. We chilled out here the longest. Bingin beach was down a long track and a lot of steps, busy and small. We at lunch at the Cashew Tree cafe.

Entrance to Uluwatu Temple is 30k, and this includes a mandatory sarong. We were there for sunset, but it was cloudy, so nothing interesting to report. There was a fire dance, but I didn't really see it. The stadium was full, and tickets were 100k. Which I would have paid, had the stadium not been full. Everyone else on the tour had seen this before. The tide was in, so we did not get to go in the cave underneath.
