A Magical Bali Day

Let’s share a typical day of Bali magic… from sunrise to sunset!

Rise and shine. It’s beach time! On the way to the beach, take time to stop and appreciate the beauty of Bali.

A tradition! A new day begins with an early, 8km beach walk, EVERY, single, day! Time to relish the new day.

Tip: If you take old walking shoes, you can leave them for the beach ladies on the last day. They’re so grateful! Walking early is the key (7am at the latest). It’s cool and breezy with only the locals around. It’s best to wear loose, light fitting clothing and you’ll definitely need a water bottle. Afterwards… a pre-brekky dip in the pool is sensational.

Yummmm!! Brekky in Bali is the BEST! So, take the time to enjoy it! It should be long and lazy, every day. Start with freshly squeezed juice and obsess over Bircher muesli. Follow up with eggs any style, then grainy toast, coffee and a fruit platter. Well deserved after that big, long walk.

Pooltime! Spend the rest of the morning lazing.

Pack some mags, a good hat, old denim skirt and…

thong sandals!! These are so MUCH better than ‘flip-flop’ thongs on the pot-holed Bali streets. They’re made in Brazil by Grendene and are soooo comfy.

Afternoon delight time! Off to ‘Home Base’ Day Spa in Dyana Pura Street. Wearing light casual, Italian cheesecloth beach dress over bathers and thong sandals. Easy.

Tip: Find a clean, cheap and cheerful spa. A daily treatment is so indulgent.

Try a hair wash and blow-dry, foot massage and pedicure. Home Base charges approx $5-$8 per treatment, so it’s very affordable. For a real OTT Day Spa pamper, try ‘Prana’ or ‘Chill’ in Jalan Kunti.

Tip: Be prepared and take a dress with long sleeves, such as this Ellery shirt dress. It’s usually warm and balmy at night, but it was cooler and drizzly on this particular night.

Sunset drinks at Potato Head, Seminyak. Try a foaming Kookaburra. It really has WOW factor! Actually double WOW!!

Cheers to a magical Bali day!
