Bali walking trails/places of interest (with baby)

Hello! We are going to spend some time on Bali in Spetember during our Indonesia trip. For now I am plannig to stay on the coast, but I was also thinking about Ubud and/or Sideman. As we travel with 1-year old daughter we will have to skip any volcano or waterfalls trekking, but we would love to see at least few spots in the mountains/interior. Are there any walking trails/viewpoints/temples that we can handle walking (with a carrier) and driving that are safe to walk (no slippery rocks etc.)? We are not very into sitting on the beach all day but I would like to plan some trips ahead to ensure some basic travel comfort for our daughter. Thanks!

You could manage the Camphuhan Ridge walk and Juwak Manis walk in Ubud with the baby. .

Hi Martyna,

Once you finalise your itinerary then easier to suggest order of things.

If you decide to do a split and stay a few days in Ubud and a "southern resort" then perhaps go to Ubud first and spend a few days there. Then transfer to your "southern resort'

FROM UBUD

If you go north towards Ulun Danu Bratan (easy flat walk around) you can visit Bali Botanic gardens on the way.

'Southern Resorts"

KUTA/LEGIAN/SEMINYAK

Whilst transferring (depending on where you choose) if going to Kuta/Legian/Seminyak area can easily visit Taman Ayun Temple Gardens and Tanah Lot.

Taman Ayun is an easy flat walk around. Personal favourite.

Tanah Lot easy walk with a baby in a baby carrier but just watch your footing down on the rocks.

If you choose elsewhere then do the above from Ubud on a day trip

SANUR

you could do the above if going to Sanur but a bit in the wrong direction

or if you choose Sanur as your "southern resort" has the added advantage of a very long seafront prom so you can push a buggy.

When transferring from Ubud to Sanur you can visit Tegenungan waterfall.

Lots of steps down (so up) but full concrete safe steps

STAYING IN ONE PLACE ONLY

If you choose just to stay say in Sanur the whole time then a typical day tour from Sanur or any "southern resort" would be

YOUR HOTEL - Goa Gajah (can do this with a baby in a baby carrier) - Go to Ubud - perhaps give the Monkey Forest a miss but have a wander through Ubud, Ubud Palace, perhaps a spot of lunch somewhere - then on to Taman Ayun Temple Gardens - Tanah Lot - back to your Hotel.

Can also fit in Tegenungan Waterfall before Goa Gajah.

Thank you so much!For now I have booked our acommodation on Lombok only. My plan where to stay on Bali very much depends from what are we going to see (be able to see). I was thinking Ubud or Sideman, Amed or Sanur and maybe Lovina.

Hi Martyna,

Have a bit of a plan of order especially because of the places you are interested and the fact you have already booked Lombok.

e.g. We always spend the longest part of our each stinit on Bali in Amed (diving/snorkeling/chillaxing).

We generally transfer directly to Amed on landing. It takes ~ 3hrs from DPS to Amed.

We use www.moyo-tulamben.com for all our Amed related transfer and tour needs whether transfer to/from DPS, Kuta or Ubud.

Just last month we also used him to transfer from Amed to Pemuteran with a lunch stop in Lovina.

You can also get a fastboat from Gilis/Bangsal to Amed (shortest crossing @ 45mins to 1hr depending on pickup point).

So depending on how Lombok and the rest fits in will determine best way round to do things/itinerary.
