    In accordance with Bali Governor Regulation No. 99 of 2018, Bali supermarkets, hotels and restaurants must now promote and prioritize local produce, sourced from farms and fisheries on the island. The policy was inaugurated on Monday, and stipulates that 60 percent of the agricultural products bought, sold and marketed by retailers and hoteliers must come from local suppliers, as reported by Bali Post.

    At the inauguration of the new regulation in Pengotan, Bangli, on Monday, Governor Wayan Koster spoke about his vision to boost Bali’s farming, fishing and handicraft industries by synergizing them with the already booming tourism sector.

    “There is a big imbalance [in economic growth]. Bali relies on the tourism sector. If tourism is disrupted, all life is disrupted. Therefore, it is necessary to balance the structures of tourism and agriculture,” said Koster, as quoted by Nusa Bali.

    The end of Echo Beach? Surfers paddling out to protest jetty construction at famous Canggu break

    PSOI Save the Wave letterSurfers will be paddling out this evening at Pererenan Beach to protest the alleged development of a jetty that would cut through Echo Beach, one of Canggu’s most famous and beloved breaks.

    A call has been put out by surfers in Bali, mainly via social media outlets like the Canggu Community Facebook group, to take a stand in what would be a staggering loss for surfers on the Indonesian island.

    It’s rumored that the jetty would effectively destroy the break as we know it.

    Surfers will gather at 5pm at Pererenan Beach to “Save the Wave”.

    A memo circulated by the Persatuan Selancar Ombak Indonesia (PSOI) Bali Province is prompting all board-riders in Bali to get involved and show solidarity for the cause.

    Bali wears many hats — it’s a honeymoon destination for googly-eyed couples and their rose-tinted lenses; its beaches are a surfer’s paradise; it’s a wellness retreat for yoga devotees. And soon, it’ll be a family-friendly vacation destination, thanks to the 2020 debut of a Cartoon Network theme park on the island.

    Mingling with Bubbles, Buttercup and Blossom? Hell, yeah. Bear hugs with the cuddly mascots of Panda, Grizzly, and Ice Bear? Sure, OK, why not. We’re adult enough to admit we still get nostalgic for cartoons. And bear hugs.

    Copenhagen comes to Canggu: Graze on Danish delights at this cafe’s all-day brunch

    COCONUTS HOT SPOT — Just when we thought we had seen it all on this island, Danish food washed up on the shores of Bali in the form of an all-day brunch cafe near Echo Beach.

    The whole concept at Copenhagen Canggu is that diners get to put together their own brunch boards to fit their appetites and tastes.

    As you sit down, you’re handed a pink and white card broken down into six key categories: bakery, eggs, fruit & greens, dairy, meat & fish, and last but certainly not least, sweets.

    Much in the style of dim sum ordering, you tick off the boxes you want with options to take three items for IDR59k (US$4.22), five items for 89k (US$6.38), or the option to add a single item for IDR20k (US$1.43).

    You can mix and match, taking a plate from each category like with this potential three-item order: scrambled eggs with chives, a pink smoothie bowl, and Nutella with roasted rye bread.
