I'm travelling to Borneo and Bali in June this year. We plan to spend a few days in Borneo, then on to Ubud for about a week. Then we'd like to explore somewhere else in Bali - perhaps somewhere coastal. Are there any places that are not overly commercial and crowded (like the south/Kuta area)?
I've read about Lovina Beach up north, and Padangbai on the east coast. They sound inviting. Where else should we consider for a laid-back coastal town that is friendly, has a few restaurants, maybe some local craft and beautiful scenery? We are not after nightlife or rowdy bars. We're looking to rest and relax!
