This is probably the most popular spot for those who want to do a personal Bali photoshoot, with several platforms and props to use that overlook breathtakingly gorgeous natural scenery. Sit on a swing or a wooden platform or even on a nest and take those wanderlust-evoking photos that your followers will definitely tap the like button for, with a backdrop that is hard to find elsewhere. This spot may be catered to tourists looking for the perfect photo location, but it is also one of the best places in Bali to appreciate Bali’s splendid natural wonder. The hills overlook two giant lakes and lush rainforest that is also perfect for nature photography besides Instagrams shots
Another one of the best places in Bali to appreciate some natural beauty, the Tegalalang Rice Terraces, looks over lush rice fields and terraces that provide a country-ish vibe to your photos. If you need props, there are also zip lines and swings, as well as the famous “I Love Bali” sign. These rice terraces can also be explored on foot, so bring some sunscreen and water and get hiking to truly appreciate the traditional way of paddy farming used here in Bali.
Uluwatu Temple is a Balinese Hindu seaside temple built on a 70-metre high cliff. The temple has existed from before the 11th century, and its main deity is Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa in the form of Rudra. The clifftop position of the temple makes it an excellent spot to do a cliffside Bali photoshoot, with pictures of you and your crew backdropped by the rough waves of the sea. This is also the performance site for the Kecak dance, which is a must-see experience to learn more about Bali’s rituals and arts. The performance overlooks a gorgeous sunset too, so that’s a plus to give you more pretty pictures!
In the middle of Bali, you can find Ulun Danu Beratan Temple, also known as the “Bali temple on the lake”. This is because when water levels rise in Lake Bratan which the temple is next to, it gives the illusion that the temple is floating on the lake. It’s best to visit this temple when water levels rise to provide the “floating temple” backdrop for your Instagram photos. A popular shot for Instagrammers who visit this temple is the shot taken from a paddleboat on the lake. The natural beauty aside, the temple itself has some pretty picturesque structures and is a good place to see Balinese worship rituals for the water goddess Dewi Danu.
