Take off your sandals to feel the sand between your toes before hopping on the Dedari or Sea Angel, a fiberglass speedboat inspired by the local fishermen’ boats – mooring off the shallow waters.
After a security briefing by the captain, guests sail through the calm waters along the white Jimbaran Beach, following the impressive coastline of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula to the southernmost end of the island. Sit back, relax and soak in spectacular views of the cliffs of Uluwatu, seen from an angle that most travelers haven’t witnessed. Pass by a famous bar, built on several rocks only a few meters above the water; cruise along some of Bali’s most pristine beaches including Bingin, Balangan and Padang-Padang, finding increased popularity following the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. The waves around these beaches are renowned for ambitious surfs and you will see numerous surfers accepting the challenge.
Reach the Uluwatu Temple, perched high above on the cliffs, regarded as one of the most important temples in Bali. Join the captain for a traditional Balinese blessing ceremony by placing a floating Canang Sari – a small palm-leaf basket filled with colorful flowers, rice and incense, into the ocean from the temple’s Cliffside.
Take a dip into the refreshing water before slowly making your way back to watch the sun go down over Jimbaran Bay. Then stop for a while at the remarkable sunset’s peak to indulge in the color-changing sky and the evening light. Now is the perfect moment to raise a glass with your beloved one and enjoy a refreshing glass of champagne. Back at the beach in Jimbaran guests disembark the cruise and are transferred back to their resort.
