Taxis are abundant, rental cars are available, and for those daring enough, scooters or motorcycles can be rented for use as transportation in Uluwatu.
Walking will be a main mode of transportation if you plan to lodge yourself at the beach right in front of the waves at Bingin, Dreamland, or Uluwatu.
Many of the best beach areas are privately owned. They charge a toll to enter and you must pay this if driving by car, motorbike, or arriving by taxi. Make sure you have some change because they do not usually have the ability to make change for larger bills.
There are taxi stands near the popular beaches and you should take down the number to call them if you need a taxi to come pick you up from your hotel or another area.
Uluwatu is about 20 km south of the Kuta Region and the Ngurah Ray Airport. It is a more convenient way to reach Uluwatu by paying for a package tour or you can rent a car, with or without a driver, because taking a taxi for that distance would be very expensive.
Rental Scooters or Motorcycles
If you plan to rent a motorbike from one of the locals in the Bukit area, be warned that motorbikes are more limited in Bukit when compared to those available in the Kuta/Seminyak area. Hence, you have more of a chance of winding up with a motorbike that has not been well maintained, or is a bit old, and at a higher rental price.
If you plan to zoom from one beach to another on a motorbike to find the best waves, then it may be worth the trip downtown to rent the motorbike at a larger rental shop because it will be in a better condition for getting you around.
In places without a petrol station, you will need to look for a shop that sells petrol in one or two-liter bottles.
