10 Solo Female Traveler Friendly Spots in Bali

Bali has become a digital nomad haven over the years (for better or for worse), making it a great place for solo female travelers to visit and meet people. Here are some great spots in Bali to hang out and meet fellow travelers like yourself. Some of these spots are so beautiful that they just might. make you want to move to Bali 🙂

Balinese Beach Clubs

One thing about Bali is that it is home to many beaches which offers solo travelers with many activities including low-tide snorkeling, canoeing, paddle boarding, and delicious cuisines. The Lawn, Sundays Beach Club, Karma Beach Club, Ulu Cliffhouse, Savaya Bali, Potato Head Beach Club and Junglefish are some of our favorites.

The Lawn

Savaya Bali

Potato Head Beach Club

Pool Clubs and Parks

Places like Canggu, Ubud, and Seminyak have many pool clubs where you can splash around and enjoy drinks and food if you want to switch things up from beach to pool. They have both family-friendly clubs and those that are more adult-friendly. From rooftop clubs to jungle cabanas and clubs in the heart of famous cities, there are endless options, many with wonderful views of the ocean. We love Mrs Sippy Bali, Banana Lounge Bali – Uluwatu and Tlaga Singha.

Pura Taman Saraswati Temple

Located in Ubud, Bali, this temple is one of the most popular Zen locations, especially among solo females touring the country. The temple is home to shrines and intricate carvings that are not only religious relics but also make it a great place to go and meditate. A covered structure with three vacant thrones inside is set aside for Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, who are the three major Hindu gods. On this side as well, there are many principal shrine towers.

The temple also includes a barong, which is a pavilion where locals store the barong figures that they use in ceremonies to drive evil spirits away. Every bale barong has two barong figures: Barong Ket, which looks like a lion, and Barong Pangkal, which looks like a pig. Another thing there is a figure of the goddess Sarasvati. There are many activities to enjoy at the temple and lots of things to learn.

Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

It is almost impossible to visit Bali without seeing the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud. There, the large trees provide a somewhat ancient ambiance. It’s a place of spiritual significance, with three ancient temples set deep within the forest. The monkeys are rather playful, but it’s best to keep a safe distance and hold tight to your belongings.

Yoga in Bali

In towns like Ubud, the spirit of wellness is very obvious. Practices like yoga and other mindfulness activities are very common. You can enjoy open pavilion yoga sessions surrounded by rice paddies, with the gentle Balinese breeze aiding your deep breaths. Whether you’re a beginner or looking to deepen your practice, the island has many yoga studios and retreats that offer a perfect environment to strengthen your mind and body.

Jatiluwih Rice Terraces

As far as world heritage sites go, Jatiluwih is an interesting one. It provides paths with panoramic views of terraced rice paddies for you to admire as you trek. This particular site offers lessons about Bali’s agrarian culture. The fields give you a deep appreciation for the island’s farming traditions and the broad landscape provides a perfect backdrop for self-reflection and rejuvenation.

Tegenungan Waterfall

This waterfall is one of Bali’s hidden gems and it’s located just outside Ubud. Offering a stunning view of nature and a much-needed retreat from the country’s heat. You can take a dip in the pool under the falls or just sit and enjoy the sound of the water falling down the rock face.

Balinese Resort Villages

Bali has several resort villages like Seminyak, Canggu, and Sanur. Each place is unique and provides you with a vibrant mix of modern amenities and traditional Balinese culture. With areas perfect for solo travelers, they offer a safe and friendly atmosphere, beautiful boutique stores, stylish cafes, and beautiful beaches

Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is a Balinese tourist location that starts off with a sweet boat ride. The dramatic landscapes and stunning coastal cliffs of this island, Kelingking Beach and beach treks are all activities that a woman can indulge in uninterrupted. The island provides a rugged beauty that makes it great for meditation and taking amazing vacation photos.

Gili Islands

Near Bali, there’s a popular group of three small islands off the northwest coast of Lombok known as Gili. These islands are a paradise for those looking to escape everyday noise and activities. Here, cars aren’t allowed and you can choose to either use a bicycle or walk around the islands, enjoying the beaches and snorkeling. Each island has a unique trait, from the party vibe of Gili Trawangan to the mellow charm of Gili Meno.
Bali offers multiple unique experiences you can enjoy on your own, and if you ever go back with friends, you can always experience them again with a new, unique perspective.
