Padang-Padang, Bali

The Padang- Padang beach
 While at my stay in Bingin i took an approximately 30 minute walk over to the Padang- Padang beach furher down the road. Meaning 'many fields' in Bahasa Indonesia or Malay  I couldnt see any fields at all but it seemed like a quiet little beach town. It had chic little boutiques and some cafes and many little chalets and resorts offering surfing lessons. Board rentals were also available. It's about a 40 minute drive from the airport, located on the south western end at the tip of the Bali.

The I Love Bali outlet which i believe has a couple of shops in Bali
Healthy organic food for the hippie in you. wait, am not sure if they offer a reefer with your soy latte though.. 
I wondered into some empty land which had some trails snaking beyond short trees and brush...
... and discovered this cosy little glen overlooking the ocean. 

Of course i didnt have much time to explore more of Padang Padang but its another one of those places that you go to get away from the madness that is Kuta. It strictly for lazing on the beaches, surfing, and just chilling away with a cold Bintang as you hear the sounds of the faraway ocean.
