Catch The Sunset… and The Airplane

Bali is an island that full of majestic sunset view if it was not cloudy…

Bali adalah pulau yang penuh dengan pemandangan matahari terbenam yang ‘waahh’ kalau tidak mendung…

This is actually a very late post of ours. We were going to have a sunset at the beach that day, but we want to avoid the ‘mainstream’ beach that is usually a crowd, like Kuta beach.

Sebenarnya ini postingan yang sudah agak terlambat. Waktu itu kami pengen lihat matahari terbenam di pantai, tapi pengennya pantai yang tidak biasa dikunjungi orang-orang, kayak pantai Kuta.

So the beach is Kelan beach. It is located just beside the runway of Ngurah Rai Airport. The attractive point of this beach is you can watch the sun is setting while guessing what plane is landed next.

Jadi kami ke Pantai Kelan. Lokasinya persis di sebelah runway Bandara Ngurah Rai. Bagian yang menarik dari pantai ini adalah kamu bisa lihat matahari terbenam sambil menebak-nebak pesawat apa yang berikutnya bakal mendarat.

It was almost no tourist there. Only a few locals that want to take an airplane picture or just fishing. Yes, fishing on the shore. We didn’t ask what kind of fish that they got, though.

Hampir tidak ada turis di sini. Cuma ada beberapa orang lokal yang mau foto-foto pesawat atau cuma sekedar memancing ikan. Iya, memancing ikan dari pinggir pantai. Kami nggak nanya sih ikan apaan yang mereka dapat.

If you think that you are coming to Kelan beach is to chill at a bar like in Seminyak or Legian, well… we suggest you come to Seminyak or Legian. Because there were no many tourists and Kelan beach is rarely listed as one of ‘must visit’ beach in Bali, so mostly there is just a few cafes (that is not in our interest) or just a family restaurant around the beach.

Kalau kamu pikir datang ke Pantai Kelan sambil duduk santai di bar seperti di Seminyak atau Legian, hmm… kami sarankan mending ke Seminyak atau Legian deh. Soalnya karena nggak ada turis dan pantai Kelan jarang masuk ke daftar tempat yang harus dikunjungi di Bali, jadi di pantai ini cuma ada beberapa cafe (yang tidak menarik minat kami) atau restoran keluarga saja.

That’s why we were having our dinner in somewhere else at Kuta. We choose Dewi Sri food court, for its cheap and many varieties offered.

Makanya kami makan malam di tempat lain di sekitar Kuta. Kami pilih food court Dewi Sri yang murah meriah dan banyak pilihannya.

Oh, here are our tips: If you want to have a pleasant trip to Kuta or Legian or Seminyak area, just rent a motorbike. It will save your time. 🙂

Oh ya, tips dari kami: Kalau mau perjalanannya mulus ke area Kuta atau Legian atau Seminyak, lebih baik sewa sepeda motor deh. Bakal menghemat waktu. 🙂
