Enjoy a unique look at nature on a swing
For a romantic day out - and evidence of it – book a visit to one of Bali’s swings. In-hand and harnessed, you and your plus one will gently swing over terraced rice fields or against a lush forest backdrop in a giant tandem swing.
While there are several companies offering tandem swing rides, Bali Swing is probably the most famous. The attentive staff ensure your safety, as well as taking care of all the Instagram-worthy photo opportunities as you swing high over the forest canopy.
Bali Swing also has bird nests, a romantic bed perched high, and a heart-shaped rock, all geared towards that idyllic couple's pic.
Watch the sunset at Uluwatu Temple
Nothing says romance more than sunset at a historic monument, so head to Uluwatu Temple (Puru Luhur) with your special someone. This cliff-top temple overlooks the Indian Ocean and is one of six spiritually significant temples in Bali. Uluwatu Temple is impressive by day, but more so at night as the setting sun appears to light this Hindu temple up.
Close by, the daily 6 pm Kecak performance takes place. This traditional Balinese ritual entails chanting, dance, and body percussion in a lively performance.
From the temple, head to the candle-lit seafood restaurants of Jimbaran Beach to continue your rom-com worthy evening.
Make food (and memories) in a Balinese cooking class
Balinese dishes are often a highlight of any visit, with an abundance of restaurants, cafés, and street vendors tantalising your tastebuds. Share the Balinese passion for cooking in a private or group cooking class. When you get home, you can recreate your favourite Bali flavour memories.
Typically, a Balinese cooking class starts at a local fruit and veg market, offering insight into the range and diversity of produce available. Once you’ve collected your ingredients, you’ll head to the kitchen to make two or three courses together. Accompanying the step-by-step instructions, you’ll also learn about Balinese gastronomy and the local attitude to food.
Splurge in Bali’s boutique shops
While matchy-matchy outfits may not be your couple’s style, shopping for dapper outfits can be a fun way to spend an afternoon together.
For hip and quirky vibes, head surf-side to Canggu. Whether you’re looking for clothes, shoes, homeware or unique Balinese artefacts, Canggu has an array of stylish boutiques to choose from, from budget to high-end.
If you both enjoy wandering local markets, the Love Anchor market is on daily, with great clothing and homeware, as well as a bustling atmosphere. For a chill, lesser-visited market, head to Niki Natural Art Market.
