Locally, 2 great surf beaches offer lessons and equipment for all levels of surfers. Balian Beach is a few kilometres away while Medewi Beach is approximately a 20 minute drive further up the coast. Closer to home at the bottom of the steps leading from Bukit Kembar to the beach, are areas that are perfect for boogie boarding or body surfing.

Boogie Boarding and Body Surfing: Some of the best locations to enjoy the surf are just five minutes walk on the beach from Bukit Kembar

Walking on the beach: At low tide it is possible to walk in both directions on the beautiful black sand beach. Take some sandals or beach shoes as there are some rocky patches along the way! A beautiful vantage point for both the sunrise and sunset.

Golf: Practice golf on the property with two professionally designed greens and a 100 yard driving range or play at the Nirwana Golf course near the beautiful Tanah Lot Temple or north at Bali Handara in Bedugul situated in a volcanic caldera

Scuba Diving: Consider the beautiful dive sites in the north of Bali at Menjangan or east at Nusa Penida and dive or snorkel with a professional scuba diving company

Yoga classes: available at a nearby yoga centre or in the privacy of Bukit Kembar

Mountain biking through rice fields on small roads nearby

Bukit Kembar affords lots of running space and areas to kick a soccer ball, put up a volleyball net or play badminton.

Shopping & Restaurants: Hire a car and driver for the day and travel in air conditioned comfort to Seminyak for up to the minute fashion, antiques, chic restaurants. Or visit Ubud for traditional crafts, art and fine dining. Within a 20 minute radius of these areas are some wonderful local and western style restaurants.

Both locations are approximately 1.5 hours from Bukit Kembar.
