I (Matt) really love Balian, Hannah is not mad keen. It’s a sleepy surf town with not much more to do than sleep, eat, go for a massage, do yoga, surf and watch the sunset. It’s a black (volcanic) sand beach. There are some good local restaurants and some excellent self catered places to stay. It’s a great place to wind down and think of very little. If you are keen, get in touch with me direct and i can recommend some nice places to stay.
