Vacationing to the island of Bali, it’s not perfect if you haven’t visited some special destinations to hunt sunset and sunrise. Many exotic places that offer natural beauty as well as provide the best spot to enjoy the sunrise in Bali.
For those of you who love the view when the sun starts to rise, the article below will be a recommendation right before visiting there.
- Lovina Beach
This popular beach on the Island of the Gods is also often a favorite destination for tourists to hunt for the sunrise. This beach, located in Singaraja, Bali, is synonymous with dolphins. Dolphins often come to the surface and jump around, right at sunrise and sunset.
If you want to see the sunrise at Lovina Beach while accompanied by dolphins, you should come around 6 to 8 in the morning. This view will be clearer if you take a boat rented by local residents.

Besides being used as a place of worship, one of the temples in Bali has shocked the virtual world because of the beauty and serenity it offers. Lempuyang Temple itself has become a favorite location for tourists when they want to enjoy the sunrise view.

Lempuyang Temple is located at an altitude of 1,175 meters above sea level. To get to the top, visitors have to climb approximately 1,700 stairs! Even so, all your fatigue will be paid off upon arrival at the top with beautiful views and cool air.

Tamblingan Lake is very quiet. The reason for this silence is because the lake is surrounded by 11 temples, namely Dalem Tamblingan Temple, Endek, Ulun Danu, Sang Hyang Kawuh, Gubug, Tirta Mengening, Naga Loka, Carving, Embang, Weighers and Batulepang.

The reason is, the path to be taken to reach the top is quite slippery and steep. So, climbers must be extra careful. Generally, climbers who want to enjoy the sunrise start climbing at 3 am, so that when they reach the peak the time is right with the seconds the sun will rise.
Even though you are tired, when you get there, all your tiredness will be paid off with a perfect view between sunrise and Mount Batur which has a background of Mount Abang and Mount Rinjani. Not only that, you will also be spoiled by the stunning view of Lake Batur.
