Lovers Beach and Sunsets. Bali Indonesia 23

Pantai Cinta, Love beach. 

The words Pantai Cinta translate directly to Beach love. While that should be more like Lover’s Beach or beach of love it sure is a beautiful place.  

It is quite incredible because it is a mixture of sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, and a beautiful sloping green terrace area where little shops are set up.  

In Bali, the sun sets at nearly the same time every day. It does vary a bit here and there with the season. When the roads get busy it is because of two things. People are either getting off work or heading out to see the sunset.  

The ritual of a sunset. 

To me, every sunset is special to watch. It never gets old because I love to people-watch during this time. The kids, the teenagers, couples, and families young and old all come out to experience the end of another day.  

One cannot blame them. At times I have witnessed incredible colors and even lightning and sunset at the same time. This was something incredible to witness. Watching the sunset and the brilliant orange and gold colors light up the ocean. Yet as the sun was poking out the lightning could be seen in the clouds to the right.  

No matter where you are the beach is not far. 

Bali is not huge, so in general, the beach is close. Yet the farther you are from the main tourist attractions the more special the sunsets become.  

Yes, besides the obvious of having fewer people around, the most amazing part for me is the locals. When you wander off the beaten path and head out further and further, you can experience the simple life.  

Local families come out to the beach, with kids playing in the rivers as the freshwater rivers meet the ocean. These inlets are incredible. They carve their way down the mountain and towards the ocean, but they transform the beach every day. The sandy shores get moved, pushed, and eroded in different ways each day. The beach is alive, so each visit is different. 

The sunset. 

It is a calm and romantic time. Couples and families dance in the shadows while dogs chase each other up and down the beach. Kids playing soccer, throwing a Frisbee, or just chilling with coconut drinks. 

Pantai Cinta is not different. But it is a special place for couples because of the stadium-like terraced plots that have been carved out. Usually seated on beanbags, it is a special time for locals to chill and watch the end of another day.  

Then after the sunset, there is traffic to get back home. In the end, it is worth it. If one sticks around for another hour or so, they may witness further light shows when the sky turns orange, and turquoise blue before darkness sets in. If you are in Bali, you would be a fool to miss the amazing sunsets in Uluwatu, Pantai Cinta, or the ones in Seminyak and Canggu.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
