50 Most Instagrammable Places In Bali

If you’re looking for the most Instagrammable places in Bali look no further. Here’s the ultimate guide to the best Bali Instagram spots on the island.

North Bali

1. Sekumpul Waterfall

In our opinion the best waterfall in Bali!

Sekumpful Waterfall is the tallest, biggest and baddest of the Bali waterfalls, and the viewpoint from the top makes for an insane exploring photo!

If you want to go down to the waterfall itself, which you totally should, it’s can be a bit of the journey.

From the car park, you have to walk down a dirt road, followed by 350 steps, and across a river. However, it’s totally worth it to get up close and personal with the falls down below.

At the base, the water falls to form a beautiful, clean pool. Here you can swim and get some more awesome photos.

But if you are taking pictures, just remember the spray from the water is pretty intense so be sure to keep your camera dry.

For those of you that like everything organised for them, North Bali: Sekumpul Waterfalls and Ulun Danu Temple Tour is a great way to see and capture these falls, along with some beautiful temples.

2. Handara Golf & Resort Bali Gates

One of the most famous travel photos on the internet happens to be outside the Handara Golf & Resort Gates, which is in fact the entrance to the golf course!

These tall pointy gates make for a beautiful Bali backdrop, and have been the focal point of many photographers over the past few years.

We recommend arriving pretty early to beat the crowds. This photo was taken at around 6.30am just as sun was rising and we were the only ones there.

Come 9am a ticket officer will arrive and people have to queue and pay 15,000 IDR to take photos.

There are tours available that visit these stunning gates along with other great instagram spots including Bali: Twin Lakes, Handara Gates, and Forest Trekking Tour.

3. Wanagiri Hidden Hills

So there’s a hugely famous Bali swing located around the Ubud area, although the Air BnB hosts have now placed a $35 charge on it for a day trip.

Which sent us in search of Wanagiri Hidden Hills, this beautifully created local attraction, that we managed to capture some pretty awesome photos at!

There are several stations dotted along the main road of Jl. Raya Wanagiri. Each location has different attractions, usually including a nest, a swing and some kind of bamboo lookout.

Not bad for 40,000 Rupiah (around $2).

Alternatively book a tour that takes in the Wanagiri Hidden Hills, plus the Handara Gates and more beautiful instagram spots at Northern Charm: Lake Bratan, Handara Gate, Waterfall & Swing.

4. Mount Batur

Mount Batur is for the adventurous and the early risers.

Roughly a two hour hike at sunrise, many tourists visiting Ubud add climbing Mount Batur onto their Bali itinerary.

We would recommend a tour such as Bali: Mount Batur Sunrise Hike and Natural Hot Spring to take you to this iconic spot.

The viewpoint from the top of the mountain is well worth getting up at 2am for, and as always the photo’s just don’t do it justice!

The hike itself is fairly intermediate. So if you’re a nature lover we highly recommend heading up to the top of Mount Batur for sunrise.

5. Jatiluwih Rice Terraces

Not as famous as Tegalalang Rice Terraces, but definitely just as beautiful!

Proudly a UNESCO World Heritage site, the rice fields at Jatiluwih are a great part of Bali to visit if you want to see what see the true face of the island, outside of the busy tourist areas, looks like.

Jatiluwih Rice Terraces are an explorers dream, and if you’re looking for Instagrammable places in Bali then these rice fields are a lot less crowded than those of Ubud.

With fields and fields of green, and extremely appreciative locals, Jatiluwih was one of the our favourite stops in Bali.

Jatiluwih can be difficult to get to, but that’s why it’s so incredible.

At only 40,000 IDR to get in, it’s a very peaceful walk, and no matter how many photos you take, you’ll never capture the beauty of this place.

For a unique way of seeing and capturing these beautiful rice fields Bali: Jatiluwih Rice Terraces 1-Hour Electric Bike Tour might be worth a try!

6. Gitgit Waterfall

A must visit in the north!

Gitgit Waterfall is the perfect place to cool down after walking around in the Balinese humidity all day.

Situated high up in the mountains and surrounded by stunning rice paddies, Gitgit Waterfall is definitely a rising hotspot for tourism. It’s a jungle heaven for all photographers and day to day tourists.

Around 700m from the entrance, through some natural forests and local houses, lies one of the most epic spots to hang out with friends.

For just 20,000 IDR you can’t miss it!

For the more adventurous that would like to get some action shots, Bali: Canyoning Adventure at Gitgit Canyon looks pretty awesome!

7. Bali Twin Lakes Viewpoint

The Bali Twin Lakes Viewpoint gives one of the most insane views in North Bali.

The viewpoint overlooks both Tamblingan Lake and Buyan Lake in Munduk. With eerie mist always floating around so high in the mountains, the backdrop in any direction is a great photo opportunity.

You can simply pull up on the side of the road and the huge stone viewpoint is accessible to the public.

For lovers of nature and views, this shot gives all the feels!

If you are looking for a tour that visits this spot and other great Instagram friendly spots Bali: Twin Lakes, Handara Gates, and Forest Trekking Tour is available.

8. Tamblingan Lake

Located at the foot of Mount Lesung in Munduk, Tamblingan Lake is a quiet haven in the North.

This huge mass of water is mostly untouched by tourists and still has an extremely local feel to it.

The lake itself makes for some great reflections, and there’s a huge temple that is also extremely photogenic. Plus you can drive right up to the lake by scooter, which is always a bonus.

However, we decided to capture this romantic photo on a traditional fishing boat. One that in fact the people working there were just about to take out on the lake!

A visit to this beautiful spot is included in the Bali: Twin Lakes, Handara Gates, and Forest Trekking Tour.

Ubud

9. Tegalalang Rice Terraces

The most popular rice terraces in Bali, and one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali for sure!

You could upload this photo with no tags and people will know exactly where in the world you are.

The rice terraces are located just over a 20 minute drive from Ubud and entrance ranges from donations only – 10,000 IDR (depending on which entrance you use).

Tegalalang Rice Terraces are best visited at sunrise! With the sun poking through the palms making it another of the most popular Bali Instagram spots on the island.

Tourist buses will arrive around 10am, so be sure to arrive before that.

Although, if you prefer to join an organised tour Ubud: Waterfall, Rice Terraces & Monkey Forest Private Tour takes in these rice terraces along with other great instagram spots.

10. Love Bali Sign

We can never believe the power of social media, but among Tegalalang Rice Terraces lays one of the first photos of Bali we ever saw online!

It’s only 5,000 IDR per person to take your photo with the famous LOVE BALI sign. So as you’re exploring the rice fields, you have to stop by.

Run by locals, the cheeky kids will no doubt giggle at you – but they’re harmless.

Now thanks to becoming one of the top Bali Instagram spots, there are other signs going up in the same area close to the main road entrance.

11. Campuhan Ridge Walk

One of our favourite places to take a beautiful photo in Ubud.

Stroll along the brick paved path of Campuhan Ridge Walk and take in exactly where you are.

Surrounded by fields and forests this walkway has become an extremely popular thing to do in Ubud, and also one of the towns most Instagrammable places in Bali.

Campuhan Ridge Walk is completely free and it’s windy walk-way especially attracts lovers of photography.

If you like things to be arranged for you Ubud: Campuhan Ridge to Ubud Monkey Forest Walking Tour will give you some great photo opportunities.

However, if you’re looking to get a clear shot of the Bali Instagram spots, we recommend heading for sunrise or sunset to avoid the heat and crowds!

Campuhan Ridge Walk Ubud Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

12. Ubud Monkey Forest

If you’re heading to Bali, a selfie with a monkey is probably on your photo list. Well Ubud Monkey Forest is your place!

We got creative with this triple decker should ride or as some people on Instagram called it ‘3 Wise Monkeys’.

If you are planning on heading to Ubud Monkey Forest though, please be careful.

There have been many tourist incidents where monkeys have been tormented and bitten people. And nobody wants their holiday ruined with a dose of rabies.

That being said, we challenge you to beat our three tier monkey photo!

If you are unsure you could always book a tour like Ubud: Campuhan Ridge to Ubud Monkey Forest Walking Tour so that you have a guide with you.

Ubud Monkey Forest Ubud Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

13. Tegenungan Waterfall

Tegenungan Waterfall is definitely one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali.

This epic spot is a dream to photograph at sunrise, and is super cheap and easy to get to!

Just a 30 minute drive from Ubud, and costing only 15,000 IDR per person, we recommend either heading early to beat the crowds or simply getting as close to the waterfall as possible like we did.

A great spot for all ages and abilities, you really have no reason to miss this off your Bali Instagram spots list.

If you prefer to jump on a tour to get lots of great waterfall shots all in one day Ubud: Spectacular Waterfalls Tour is a must.

Tegenungan Waterfall Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

14. Kanto Lampo Waterfall

Now Kanto Lampo can be a trickier spot to get a photo at.

We visited on an extremely crowded day, however the waterfall itself is still beautiful.

Located just down the road from Tegenungan Waterfall, again we recommend heading off early in the morning if you want the place to yourself.

So the best advice we could give would be to visit them both back to back at sunrise!

Most people choose to swim into the stream beneath the waterfall, but please be careful if you choose to climb up the rocks.

If you fancy doing a tour that includes this waterfall the Blue Lagoon, Kanto Lampo Waterfall Tour with Lunch is perfect.

15. Tibumana Waterfall

Tibumana Waterfall is one of the islands best kept secrets.

An easy walk down, and a beautiful swimming spot, it always makes for one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali thanks to the light rays!

We visited early one day and happened to catch the waterfall with no other tourists!

At only 10,000 IDR you’d be crazy to skip this waterfall near Ubud.

This waterfall is also included in the Ubud: Spectacular Waterfalls Tour if you want to get lots of great Instagram waterfall shots all in one day.

Tibumana Waterfall Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 7

16. Hidden Canyon

The Hidden Canyon is another little known spot in Bali!

With it being quite new to tourism the locals are really trying to build a reputable tour around the place. And they’re doing a great job!

We paid 400,000 IDR for 3 people, so it’s one of the pricier attractions in Bali. However, the service was that of Western standards.

With showers, water and an extremely helpful guide. Taking photos whilst tackling this obstacle course could be difficult if it weren’t for the help.

Either way, the cracks and crevices of the Hidden Canyon make for one of the best Bali Instagram spots.

For a day of great photo opportunities including a visit to Hidden Canyon and Tegenungan Waterfall, Bali: Hidden Canyon, Waterfall & Temples Small Group Tour is a great option.

Hidden Canyon Bali Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 7

East Bali

17. Pura Lempuyang Temple

Pura Lempuyang Temple, also sometimes referred to as the Bali Gateway To Heaven, is one of the oldest and most sacred temples on the island.

It also probably TOPS the most Instagrammable places in Bali!

And is first stop on this Bali Full-Day Instagram Highlights Tour.

Photographing this famous spot though can prove difficult. If it’s not for the amount of people (even at sunrise) you’ll be battling against the clouds for a view of the mountain top in the background.

We arrived at sunrise and there were around 6 other tourists taking photos with no problems. However we had to be patient for the right timing with the clouds.

Needless to say this famous gateway is one of the most amazing Bali Instagram spots for sure!

Pura Lempuyang Temple Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

18. Tirta Gangga Water Palace

Tirta Gangga Water Palace is a former royal palace, that’s now been turned into a beautiful open garden for locals and tourists to visit.

If you’re looking for the famous fish photo, this is your spot! However, it may now not be as simple as it seems.

We took this photo a couple of years ago, and have since had endless messages saying how over populated the Water Palace has become.

It seems what used to be a simple process of feeding the fish and taking photos, has now become a sight of over tourism.

The palace itself is still beautiful though and worthy of a trip if out East.

It’s one of the stop-offs on the Bali: Full-Day Instagram Highlights Tour if you’re booked on that.

Tirta Gangga Water Palace Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

19. Mount Agung Viewpoint

Our first visit to Bali was just after the 2017 volcano erupted, and were unsure we’d get a clear view of Mount Agung.

However, on a spontaneous trip out East we managed to find Bukit Cinta. A relatively unknown viewpoint at the time, and it’s since become one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali.

Bukit Cinta is the location, and this Mount Agung viewpoint is insane at sunrise!

With literally nobody else here, we spent an hour or so enjoying the view and capturing all the feelings through photos.

For the really active and adventurous Bali: Mount Agung Sunrise Trekking Experience is certain to offer up some great photo opportunities.

Bukit Cinta Mount Agung Viewpoint Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

20. Hideout Bali

THE coolest accommodation in Bali, and also one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali too!

If there’s ever a once in a lifetime place to stay, it’s at Hideout.

All three eco bamboo homes, Hideout Bali, Hideout Lightroom and Hideout Beehive, are located within the same grounds, although there’s a separate entrance for each Hideout. So don’t worry you won’t be sharing with your neighbours.

These eco friendly, bamboo huts are not only the cosiest and coolest places we’ve ever visited. But they are one of the most sought after Bali Instagram spots.

So get booking in advance!

South Bali

21. Abandoned Plane

This hidden gem down in the Bukit Peninsula has become a bit of a photographers secret treasure.

After spotting a few snaps on Instagram, and always curious to discover random things, we headed down to Kuta to explore the abandoned plane in Bali.

Entrance to the plane viewing platform is free. However, you’re not allowed to access the plane from the ground, as it’s fenced off with ‘no trespassing’ signs.

With not too many people having captured the shot from the top of the hill, the abandoned plane is one of the hidden most Instagrammable places in Bali.

Abandoned Plane Bali Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

22. Tegal Wangi Beach – Sunset Cave

There is something truly special about this secret gem!

Tegal Wangi Beach is one of the most visited beaches in the South of Bali for sunset.

However, not everyone knows about the cave that gives an insane photography border!

If you walk down from the car park, and head all the way down to the far left end of the beach, you can’t really miss the cave.

The majority of people will race to the natural jacuzzi-like rock pools that are scattered along the sand.

But it was a much more enjoyable experience to watch the sun go down, whilst sitting inside the hidden cave at Tegal Wangi.

Tegal Wangi Beach Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

23. Balangan Beach Viewpoint

From the Balangan Beach viewpoint, you get the most stunning views of the ocean crashing against the shore in the evenings.

Easy enough to reach via scooter, simply park up in the car park and walk over to the cliff edges.

This viewpoint has become extremely popular for wedding shoots recently, and you’ll likely come across some if you visit at sunset.

So if you’re looking for one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali, whilst watching the sun tuck right behind the horizon, this is a great one.

Just please be careful of you footing and never do anything stupid just for a photo.

Balangan Beach Viewpoint Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

24. Bingin Beach

A popular spot for two reasons – surf, and the huge rock with a tiny tree on top.

Bingin Beach is a bit of a hit and miss when you ask people about it. Some rave about it’s great surf and chill vibe, others say it’s trashy and too polluted.

We visited on a couple of occasions and we have to admit that when the tide was out, there was a lot of rubbish.

For this photo we headed down to the beach and walked all the way left along the ocean front. Make sure to check for low tide otherwise you simply will not be able to reach it.

We shoot all of our photos on a tripod and camera so used some stairs to set up the arial view shot, otherwise a drone would be ideal!

Just be sure to check the tides and visit when the tide is out!

Bingin Beach Uluwatu Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

25. Nyang Nyang Beach – Graffiti Vessel

Down on the South coast, Nyang Nyang Beach is a huge stretch of sand where this authentic old vessel lays stranded on the beach.

Many talented artists have marked their creativity, and made the vessel itself a popular destination for photographers.

With the artwork on display ever changing, you can visit Nyang Nyang and get completely different photo’s to other people which is always a plus.

If you’re a bit of a graffiti lover then this should definitely be on your Instagrammable places in Bali list!

Nyang Nyang Beach Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

26. Karang Boma Cliff

Not a Bali Instagram spot for those scared of heights.

Although Karang Boma Cliff does make for an awesome distant shot of the natural cliff edges that make up the island.

Also known as the Uluwatu Cliff, the whole area is unmanned. so please do be careful when wondering the cliff edges.

Marked from the road, there is a sign to Karang Boma leading in and a parking attendant that will charge you 10,000 IDR, however after that you’re on your own.

We’ve never visited at sunset, but it’s said to be one of the best places in the South to photograph at golden hour.

Karang Boma Cliff Uluwatu Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

27. Suluban Beach

Suluban Beach is the most popular beach in Uluwatu for surfing!

However even if you don’t surf, this hidden gem at low tide is definitely worth a couple of hours to chill at.

The sand is white and the water is blue, making for the dream, tropical photo that you expect of Bali. 

There’s a walkway from the car park that leads down plenty of stairs, before chucked you out in the middle of the cave.

If you fancy something arranged for you, the South Coast Uluwatu, Tanah Lot, and Jimbaran Day Trip includes a visit Suluban Beach.

A crazy little spot, but definitely one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali.

Suluban Beach Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

28. Melasti Beach

The high cliffs of Melasti Beach!

Located at the most southern point of Bali, Melasti Beach is home to some of the bluest water on the island!

Not only is the beach itself pretty quiet, apart from those staying at the near by accommodations, but the photo opportunities are amazing.

The colours around the south coast and a mixture of blues, whites and yellows. Meaning when you get arial view, it never disappoints!

Melasti Beach Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 14

Nusa Penida

29. Kelingking Beach (From Above)

T-Rex Island, The Dinosaur Head, whatever you want to call it, it has to be one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali.

This famous spot is actually the land surrounding and making up Kelingking Beach on Nusa Penida island.

If looking for a fun way to visit Nusa Penida Island, From Bali: Nusa Penida Small Group Tour by Speed Boat allows you all day to visit the many instagrammable spots on this beautiful island.

Located over on Nusa Penida, the walk down to Kelinking Beach can be pretty tough, however a lot of tourists tend to just snap the photo from the beginning of the walkway.

Trust us though, if you have time, the beach is well worth the trek!

Kelingking Beach Nusa Penida Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

30. Kelingking Beach (From The Beach)

Possibly the best beach in Bali, and definitely the best on Nusa Penida island, this is a beautiful spot for some awesome beach shots.

The trek down is a challenge, and the trek back up is twice as hard, especially in the peak heat, but the reward is so worth it.

With a huge bay covered in perfectly white sand, Kelingking Beach is an absolute paradise and hidden away from the world.

With plenty of caves for shade from the sun, and water that’s swimmable, take your time and fully enjoy it once you make it down to the beach itself!

A visit to this beautiful beach is included in the From Bali: Nusa Penida Small Group Tour by Speed Boat.

Kelingking Beach Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

31. Rumah Pohon Treehouse

No doubt you’ll have seen this one online.

Easily one of the most instagrammable places in Bali, Rumah Pohon has dazzled many tourists through the screen.

However, this epic treehouse is not only a Bali instagram spot, you can also stay overnight in the accommodation!

Can you imagine waking up with this view on your doorstep!

That being said, please bare in mind people may be staying at the treehouse when you visit so it may be best to knock and ask if you can take a photo first.

A great day trip that includes a visit to the Rumah Pohon Treehouse is the Day Trip to East Nusa Penida, Atuh & Diamond Beach.

Rumah Pohon Treehouse Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

32. Thousand Islands Viewpoint

This one pretty much does what it says in the title.

If you make it over to Nusa Penida, you’ll probably already have a list of photo spots. However, located within the same compound as Rumah Pohon Treehouse, is this gem!

Thousand Islands Viewpoint is a lookout on the edge of cliffs looking out to the Bali Sea.

We recommend saving sunrise and sunset for some of the other epic locations on Nusa Penida.

So that means you’ll be hitting this spot in the heat of the day, do what you can with the lighting and make sure to stay hydrated!

Thousand Island Viewpoint Nusa Penida Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 3

33. Angel’s Billabong

Angel’s Billabong and Broken Beach come hand in hand when hopping around Nusa Penida.

The two of them being some of the most photographed spots on the island and also included in the From Bali: Nusa Penida Small Group Tour by Speed Boat.

So what to do if you don’t have a drone to get those famous over head shots at Angel’s Billabong? Get down in the water amongst the rock formations!

We hopped down when tide was out! Make sure of that, because it can be extremely dangerous when the tide comes crashing in.

Angels Billabong Nusa Penida Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 3

34. Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay is one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali for palm tree lovers!

The line up of palms is unreal along the beach, and at sunset when the sky lights up it’s truly beautiful.

We recommend leaving this place until the end of the day to grab photos. One because of the colours, but also because of the awesome vibe it has.

Relax and treat yourself to a coconut after all those photo’s you’ve taken.

A popular tour that visits Crystal Bay is the Best of Nusa Penida Full-Day Tour by Fast Boat.

Crystal Bay Nusa Penida Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 3

Nusa Lembongan 

35. Devil’s Tears

With some of the craziest waves we’ve ever seen, and a pretty cool spot for photographers, you definitely shouldn’t miss the Devil’s Tears on Nusa Lembongan.

If looking to book transport over to Nusa Lembongan Bali: Nusa Lembongan Island Speedboat Transfer will get you there in 30 minutes from Sanbur beach.

The cliff edges can be extremely dangerous and whilst we were there saw a few tourists nearly fall in!

So please be careful with your camera equipment, and more importantly your lives.

An impressive show of Mother Nature’s power, the Devil’s Tears reminded us why you don’t want to mess with her!

After the crash of the waves against the rocks, you’re left with a huge spray of water and then what looks like dozens of mini waterfalls cascading down back into the water.

Devils Tears Nusa Lembongan Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 3

36. Yellow Bridge

The famous Yellow Bridge keeps the two islands, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, connected.

If you like things arranged for you the Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan Island Tour takes you over the Yellow Bridge and around the islands.

Since the famous Yellow Bridge Nusa Lembongan collapsed in October 2016, it has been rebuilt and renamed ‘The Bridge Of Love’. So this is a definite opportunity for any other photographer couples out there!

It’s an active bridge but only wide enough for motorcycles and pedestrians. So be sure to keep an eye out for traffic before taking photos.

From Bali you can book a Bali to Nusa Lembongan Island: Fast Boat Transfer in advance, or barter with the locals at Sanur harbour.

Yellow Bridge Nusa Lembongan Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 3

Nusa Ceningan

37. Blue Lagoon

This insane spot is home to the bluest waters in Bali without a doubt.

The Blue Lagoon is one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali purely for that reason. You can hop on the cliff for a photo, or jump OFF the cliff if you’re brave enough.

Unfortunately it’s another one where we have to warn you to please be careful.

The place has become extremely popular with tourists over recent years, so don’t fight too hard for that photo to take home.

If you fancy an activity filled day that includes a visit to the Blue Lagoon, the Sambangan Waterfalls Trekking, Sliding, & Jumping Trip is highly recommended.

Blue Lagoon Nusa Lembongan Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

Gili Islands

38. Gili Swings

One of the most famous things to do on Gili Trawangan.

There are swings dotted all around the west side of the island, and hammocks galore as you bike around.

Although, make sure to head down early if you plan to visit at sunset, as they can get pretty busy from 6pm onwards.

If, like us, you’re on the hunt for the most famous Gili T swings – head down to Exile restaurant for one of the most patriotic Bali Instagram spots.

To get over to this beautiful island Bali and Trawangan: Fastboat with Optional Bali Transfer is a good option.

Alternatively, the Pink Beach and Southeast Gili Islands Full Day Private Tour is a great way to see the swings.

Gili T Swing Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 1

39. Life Is Good Sign

We spotted this awesome, feel good sign on the main street on Gili T.

No doubt as you’re floating around the island this slogan will be ringing in your head, so why not grab a photo to remember it!

Maybe not the most obvious of the Instagrammable places in Bali, but a personal favourite of ours.

Be prepared for a few stares though, as it literally at the front of the beach!

Gili Trawangan Life Is Good Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 1

Hotels

40. Munduk Moding Plantation Nature Resort & Spa

Munduk Moding Plantation is by far the most famous and sought after hotel to photograph in Bali. All thanks to its crazy infinity pool!

The reflections at both sunrise and sunset, matched with the ridiculous backdrop, is a dream come true!

If you’re looking for the best hotel for Bali Instagram spots, look no further.

Just be sure to book in advance because this property sells out fast.

Munduk Moding Plantation Pool Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 4

41. Adiwana Dara Ayu Villas

Adiwana Dara Ayu Villas is a hidden gem in the North of the island!

With a beautiful set up, completely off the grid, you have no option but to relax and take in the tranquility that surrounds you.

It would be pretty impossible to spend any amount of nights here though without getting the camera out.

The beautifully coloured pool, enclosed by a maze of rice terraces, makes for an epic, typical Bali photo.

Adiwana Dara Ayu Villas Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 4

42. Kelapa Villas

Kelapa Villas is a flower lovers paradise.

Located on the island of Gili Trawangan, yet far away enough from the party scene to truly relax.

Ranging anywhere from 1-5 bedroom villas, this unbelievable spot makes for a great getaway no matter how large your party is. 

With private pools and a flowery entrance, Kelepa Villas has fast become one of the most Instagrammable places in Bali!

Don’t forget to take the bikes for a ride down the isle too!

Kelapa Villas Gili Trawagan Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 4

43. W Bali

Not to be missed from the Bali Instagram spots list is W Bali located in Seminyak.

The only W hotel on the island, with its 5 star service and hospitality it’s truly a hot spot for any type of holiday maker.

The entrance however, is the most impressive part for photographers! With lengths and lengths of bamboo leading from Seminyak down to the reception, it really gives off a traditional Bali vibe.

We spent the day relaxing at the pool, before capturing this isle-like shot on the way out!

W Hotel Seminyak Instagrammable Places In Bali 3 4

Cafes/Restaurants

44. Old Man’s

The hippest place in Canggu.

Old Man’s is known for it’s chilled vibes in the day and party scene at night.

Swing by for a drink, get involved in Wednesday beer pong nights, or wait for their end of month market.

Either way there’s always a reason to visit Old Man’s, and relax in their beer garden that overlooks the beach.

45. The Loft

One of the most photographed walls and best restaurants in Bali.

This pink mural in Canggu has become insta-famous for its likeable slogan. However, the food at The Loft isn’t too bad either.

With plenty of amazing veggie options, grab a seat and a jackfruit burger.

Although you may want to head down early if you’re desperate for the pink wall as it’s a pretty popular place to sit and watch the world go by.

46. Mad Pops

The only place to eat ice cream in Bali!

Home to the insta-famous, slogan covered walls, this vegan ice cream joint is not only great for photos, but serves some of the best desert we’ve ever tasted.

This popular spot has recently launched a second branch in Canggu, following the success of their Seminyak branch, so look out for more neon lighting and Instagram tags.

Mad Pops Bali Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

47. Nalu Bowls

The king of smoothie bowls.

With branches now open in Canggu, this original location in Seminyak became a typical hit on people’s Bali Instagram spots list.

Serving up every single flavour of smoothie bowl imaginable, Nalu Bowls will have you stuck for choice when it comes to which coconut filled smoothie to devour.

Nalu Bowls Bali Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

48. Sea Circus

Another foodie spot, this time in Seminyak.

Sea Circus delivers not only deliciously colourful food, but also pretty colourful wall art upon entry.

We absolutely love the food at Sea Circus, but not as much as some people love the photo opportunities.

With so many Instagrammable places in Bali to choose from, the cafes will have you stuck for choice. But just know that the food is as good as the photo ops in Seminyak.

Sea Circus Seminyak Instagrammable Places In Bali Instagram Spots

49. Coffee Cartel

This little slice of coffee heaven serves up insanely coloured coffees and shakes, as well as healthy food!

Not only is the food delicious and the decoration so pretty, but the staff couldn’t be friendlier and more helpful! Plus they can put selfies on your coffee.

If you get the chance to visit Coffee Cartel give them a high 5 from us and grab a photo on their popular pink wall!

Where To Stay In Bali

For pre-booking accommodation when travelling, we always recommend Booking.com!

Hey guys. We’re looking at a 10 day trip that’s all. Ubud in the bag but would you recommend Seminyak or Lombok for the other 5 days ? Thanks for any tips

Hey guys, so excited for you! We definitely prefer Lombok over Seminyak. In fact we'd recommend most places over Seminyak unless you're up for partying - in which case Seminyak is the place to be haha. We've got 10 day itinerary here actually... 10 Days In Bali – The Perfect 10 Day Bali Itinerary

Hello. First, I really want to thank you for your blog because it has really helpful information and after reading it, I totally change my itinerary thanks to you. I wanted to know, because of most of your photos seems they were nobody in, if you selected a précise to visit? Really, really or late? What is your advice for visiting without too much influence ?

Heyyy, thank you so much that means a lot to us! For our photos we usually arrive at a place for sunrise (or just before it opens) to beat the crowds and also get the best lighting for our photos. :)
