The Beach Club Sandy Bay ~ Nusa Lembongan

As you can tell by the photos we have been hanging out here a fair bit. The Beach Club at Sandy Bay Nusa Lembongan is a solid, all round place to hang out for breakfast , lunch, dinner, icecreams, cocktails, pool side hangs and I am pretty sure they had a little wine cellar which I will check to see if it was actually a wine shop !). It is a little tricky to find ( not if you follow the signs or get a pick up from your accommodation), however is worth it. Whilst its not a swimming beach at all, it is very beautiful and great for the kids to make race tracks for hermit crabs. You can come just to enjoy the pool /towel and sunlounge for a small fee or the food here for a meal is one of the best on the island. The kids are welcomed with colouring in and a great range of options for them  to eat (Beau does love a bit of bacon with his choclate milkshakes ). Worth travelling for perhaps around 15 minutes from the main bay and along the journey you will see one of the largest temples on the island, a bit of the locals farming life and there is actually a really cute boutique just in front, which I will share details of in another post. We can highly recommend The Beach club at Sandy Bay, the prawn pasta was the best I have ever had and the watermelon with vodkas where so good I had to try three of them !!! Yehaaaaaaaa x

 

      

Bali Eco Deli ~ Jl Jungut Batu , Nusa Lembongan.

We have been hanging out here a fair bit, it may be because of the coffee, the hugs from Sabtu, the chocolate brownies, the fast wifi or just because its totally great. Situated on the main drag the Bali Eco Deli is making a difference one plastic straw and bottle at a time. They have the coolest recylcing program going on, offer the funky metal drink bottles to purchase and refils and are really challenging our use of plastic. As you know we have been adjusting to carrying around our glass straws and feeling proud that we have possibly avoided around 25 straws now, I know that doesnt seem like much but hey I am trying. Although upon reading the sign about god and the kittens my kids are a little disturbed smile emoticon. Rocco is a massive fruit lover and Beau well he has a choc shake additction so pictured here with all his dreams coming true with a choc brownie into the shake he says ” is there really a brownie in there ?”. Anyway pop in and refil your water bottle, catch up on Facebook and Instagram and enjoy.

        

New Fave ~ Milk & Madu

Its too easy to get comfortable in Bali and return to your much loved spots. I almost had to drag a girlfriend out here to expand her repertoire  faves. Located on Jl Pantai Berawa ( about 10 minutes north of Seminyak, and close proximity to Bermain and Bungalow Living so perfect for a little shopping when your up this way). Milk & Madu is a breezy spacious café to enjoy some delicious food and Revolver coffee. Grab some magazines, log into the wifi and chill out on the spacious, comfy lounge areas or join the communal table and strike up a convo with a stranger. Word on the street is they are building a gorgeous play ground area in the near future and they do have a great kids menu and a box of toys and heaps of space if your taking little ones ( however no high chairs as yet ). The menu is so delicious I had to try both a sweet and savoury option hahaha ( yes we had been for a uber long and sweaty beach walk that morning so had earn’t it). I think its worth the drive and if you are in the hood, def pop in and check it out. A new fave to add to the list. Milk & Madu is open Tuesday – Sunday 7am – 5pm.

Grocer & Grind Echo Beach NOW OPEN

Born out of the need for seriously good coffee, Grocer and Grind has been delivering quality  service, coffee and food for over 7 years. The Seminyak flagship store is popular spot of mine for a glass of red and its sensational meals all day long. Particularly when my boys were smaller as it is one of the first places to open in the morning and they love to feed the huge fish at the entrance. It was awesome when they opened a café on the Bukit, it just makes the all day surf trips more tolerable with a coffee in my belly. Most recently making a welcome glamorous addition to the scene in Sanur, long term holiday makers who prefer that side of the island, welcomed the fresh ground and expertly created coffee and bite to eat. Grocer and Gring has just opened its doors next to the hugely anticipated Sea Sentosa in Echo Beach. I know some of you will be incredibly nostalgic like me about the area and will reminisce about when it was just s tiny shack on the beach with an incredibly awful toilet. Yep the area has evolved and as long as its as classy and quality like this place who am I to stand in the way of development. Enjoy the cool air con inside or breezy outside option, with superfast free wifi and some tasty offerings on the menu, check it out if your in the area x
