Visiting different areas of Bali,
can be a refreshing reminder
of the enchanting places that
this island has to offer.
Up on the West Coast,
in the rice growing district of Tabanan
in Suraberata Village.
The Balian River flows down to
the black sand, the Soka Break,
on Balian Beach.
This location was first discovered
by the surfers that journeyed around Bali,
in chasing those perfect waves.
Quaint, and withdrawn,
this quite little town offers,
strolls on the beach,
hikes amongst the rice fields,
laid back reading,
tanning under the sun,
total relaxation below the coconut trees,
warm, colorful sunsets,
and twinkling, evening skies.
Currently, there is a very small selection of hotels.
But this may take change in few years,
since already the local ex-pats are
discovering this haven that this location offers.
surrounded by the rolling hills is
Gajah Mina Resort.
If you prefer a room with a view,
then visit Pondok Pisces Bali
located on the hill,
on the main road.
Pondok Pisces also offers,
new bungalows, bordering the river
called Balian Riverside Sanctuary.
There is a 2 roomed, 2 storey house,
with swimming pool and lounge,
that can be rented by the room only.
Then there are several Balinese, Guest House
that rent out rooms at a ‘Surfer’s Rate’.

This is also,
a good location to use as a stepping stone,
when visiting other locations within this area.
