5 Best Things to Do in Kerobokan

What to See and Do in Kerobokan

Kerobokan has a few attractions of note but this area is lacking in quantity when compared to neighbouring Canggu or Seminyak – after all, this is a mainly residential area. However, it does have several beaches of note, such as the exotic stretches of dark glistening black sand found at Petitenget and Berawa Beach, both popular for seclusion far removed from the busy scenes found further down the coast in Seminyak or Kuta.

These areas usually overlap with each other with attractions in Kerobokan claiming to be located in neighbouring Seminyak, Kuta or Canggu due to the growing popularity of the latter. Here we’ve listed some of the best bits to see and do around Kerobokan, and which are within easy reach along the area’s packed streets and overlying urban localities.

Bali Bodyboarding

This surf school is based in Kerobokan and has a team of professional instructors who deliver surfing lessons for adults and kids of varying skill levels. Classes by pro surfers Ryan Hardy and Michael ‘Eppo’ Eppelstun are also featured regularly through camps scheduled throughout the year.

Two-hour lessons typically include a pick up from your hotel, then off to the coast of Canggu. Safety briefs and warm-up sessions precede your lesson. You’ll learn the basics, and progress through all the aspects, from steering to crazy stances such as ‘drop knee’ or partly standing on your board.

Batubelig Beach

Loosely translated as ‘Slippery Stone’ in the local tongue, Batubelig is the direct link between Seminyak and Kerobokan. The beach is located at the end of the namesake Jalan Batubelig main road, which itself is lined with great restaurants that offer a more chilled, alternative scene to Seminyak.

Berawa Beach

Berawa Beach is usually considered part of neighbouring Canggu due to its close proximity and shared length of black sand. The beach is around a half hour’s drive from Seminyak proper, and welcomes you to mostly calm seascapes, with surfers dotting the waves. T

Petitenget Beach

Very often referred to as part of Seminyak, Petitenget Beach is a quiet coastal strip with slanting dark to golden sand, but with strong waves usually unfit for swimming.

Petitenget Temple

Often referred to as ‘Pura Petitenget’ by locals, Petitenget Temple is a significant, centuries-old temple in Bali and one of the very few cultural landmarks in Kerobokan.

Somewhat overshadowed by the modern developments of five-star resorts in the area, this temple still remains an important highlight and a must-see, especially during its festive 210-day anniversaries and the traditional dance rehearsals regularly held by the locals in a communal hall nearby.

Primo Bali Chocolate Factory

The Primo Bali Chocolate Factory produces pure, high-quality, handmade chocolate from locally-sourced cocoa beans. The small artisan factory is in Kerobokan, just north of Seminyak proper. It was started by Pepe, a passionate Italian who works closely with cocoa farmers in the island’s central highlands.

Enter the small factory and you’ll be greeted by the amazing aroma of chocolate. A custom-built grinder that he designed works its way through raw, single-origin and seasonal cocoa beans. The beans are ground at low speed and low temperature, otherwise known as ‘cold processing’, which in turn maintains the full flavour of the chocolate while suppressing its acidity levels. You can sample the end products and buy bars and pure chocolate drops in various flavours. You’ll need to arrange factory tour appointments beforehand.
