Pererenan – the best choice for expats?

posted on : November 15, 2017


Bali is becoming more and more popular among tourists and expats as well. There are many attractive areas on the island for long term planners from a few weeks stay to lifelong living.  Many expats are living around Ubud or Canggu which are the busiest spots for foreigners. However if you do some research before locate yourself to Bali, it will turn out quickly that some less known areas are also really worth to move in. Have you ever heard about Pererenan?

It is a perfect hideaway if you are open to a countryside lifestyle among green rice paddies far from overcrowded tourist hot spots.


Healthy living

Enjoying Bali’s relaxing vibes and being close to the hipster Canggu atmosphere at the same time makes this place a great choice.

Not only living close to the nature but also yoga and health retreats can help you to reach harmony and inner balance. Daily yoga sessions, healthy food and meditations spiced with some spirituality contribute to the wellness of your body and soul. Where else could you find paradise?

You do not need to worry about what to eat after a yoga class even if you are not a Babi Guling addict. Vegan and vegetarian restaurants, organic shops and cafés like Kinoa Clean eating bar or Manas Café make your healthy lifestyle complete.



Let’s be honest, for maintaining the life balance, everyone needs a little hive sometimes. Luckily Batubolong and Berawa beaches in Canggu are just in the neighbourhood, 10 minutes drive by motorbike. Youngish vibration and hipster atmosphere will turn you into a more energetic and bouncing mood. Good news that if you have enough from people, the mountains of Middle Bali are not much far away from Tabanan. Fresh air, rice paddies and palm forests can be a great getaway even for a one-day trip.


Surf, sunsets and swimsuits

Enjoying beach life at black and grey sand beaches you do not need to go far from your villa. Pererenan and Seseh beaches are perfect for a morning walk with your dog, sunbathing, a romantic afternoon walk or just meditating with a fresh, young coconut on your side. However swimming is not safe in this area, there are many other beach activities to try.

It is not a surprise that surfing is one of the most popular sports on the island. Beaches of West Bali including Pererenan, Balian, Medewi, Echo or Batubolong beach nearby can give you an incredible surf experience if you are at a higher level than full beginner. It is not recommended to start your surf career on your own on these waves as surfing here can be quite challenging with beach and reef breaks and powerful waves. There are surf camps and schools where you will be in the right hands in terms of surfing.


Horse riding for animal lovers

Have you ever imagined yourself riding a horse on a sandy beach with the infinity of the ocean in the background? Kuda P. Stables is a small stable with 50 years experience in horse riding. They offer tours on the beach, among rice fields and through small local villages. Individual or group sessions, pony rides for children are also available based on your horse riding skills, taste and experience. It can be a real adventure from the small ones to the elderly as well. Not to mention the magnificent scenery during sunset time.


Beach clean-ups

The increasing environmental awareness results in a growing trash collection community in Bali, too. Beach clean-ups are organised quite often during wet season (October-March) when more trash is coming to West Bali with currents in the Indian ocean. It is free for everyone to join and contribute to the healthy and clean life of Bali beaches.


Cultural integrity

Are you interested in Balinese culture? Here you always have the opportunity to observe temple ceremonies or any Hindu celebrations held in the small villages nearby. If you have luck, you can be invited to any of them which is a unique Balinese experience every time. Living close to the Balinese culture, you will have the possibility to learn Bahasa Indonesia or a little bit of Bahasa Bali easier than in other touristic places.

The famous water temple, Tanah Lot is a popular tourist attraction in the area, one of the must see places in Bali. The temple complex with the main temple on a huge rock in the water, a green tropical garden, panoramic view from the cliffs, art shops and restaurants give you a mix of cultural and natural experience.


As uncountable expats have settled down in Ubud or Seminyak now, Pererenan is less known by foreigners therefore it has a strong hideaway character. It is the perfect paradise for those who want to escape from their stressful and hectic lives for a few weeks, months or years.
