Pre-Bestival Bali Activities To Catch


Your Personalised Bestival Bali Itinerary

If you're as excited as we are about Bestival Bali happening at the end of this month, have we got a treat for you. Sunshine Nation has also lined up a bunch of pre-festival activities, including recommendations of the best attractions to stop by before the main event.

But whether you’re reaching enlightenment in one of its temples or tearing into its buzzing nightlife, Bali’s free-spirited culture welcomes all. So that makes for a perfect location for the UK-derived festival to move over to.



Bestival Bali 2017

If you don't already know, hop on the Bestival bandwagon, because this award-winning UK boutique festival is making its way to Bali. Held at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park in Uluwatu, its lineup includes some of the biggest international and local acts. So dance alongside Indonesian masterpiece and world’s biggest Garuda Wisnu statue in this majestically haunting venue.

Here's some recommendations by us to check out before the festival begins on both days.


Loosen up at Esthetic Day Spa

You don’t have to spend a bomb at hotel spas for a good massage—try the tranquil Esthetic Day Spa. Get rubbed down at reasonable prices in this favoured local establishment. Their friendly masseurs also cover an array of beauty care needs including waxing, hair and nail services. Feel at ease in its authentic and simplistic interior before the festivities.

Sunshine Nation Pool Party

We'll also be organising a rooftop pool party for the lovely people that purchased our Bestival Bali bundle, which includes the Maxone @ Bukit Jimbaran hotel accommodation. Meet us at the rooftop pool area, meet other Sunshine Nation festival-goers and crew, and have a drink and a snack before the festival!

Dine And Surf-Watch At Single Fin

Perched by the shoreline, Single Fin’s biggest balcony in the archipelago provides an unparalleled panoramic view for brunch enthusiasts to watch surfers ride the tides below. It’s the perfect pit stop before exploring the enchanting Uluwatu or Suluban beaches ahead. Plus they host live music and DJ sets during their hot Sunday night parties, where entry is free.
