Take an hour and do one of the hikes through the area, which was recently nominated to be a UNESCO world heritage site.
The area around Bedugul also has bird watching, and Hot Springs just to the south at Angseri. It is quite pleasant as you drive along to see cloves drying on the side of the road, as well as cacao plants, and coffee and vanilla.
Be sure to take at least a day to visit the mountainous area of Bali because not only is the terrain and weather are quite pleasurable change, in some ways it’s like taking a step back in time to see what Bali was like before it became known mostly as a tourist attraction.
