Things to Do in Bali

The Indonesian island of Bali is one of the world’s most famous tropical destinations. A humid climate, verdant volcanoes, pristine beaches and thousands of temples have all earned Bali the nickname the ‘Island of the Gods’. Enjoy a sunrise hiking excursion on Mount Batur, book a full day private art and culture tour to the fascinating museums and art galleries in the mountain town of Ubud or just kick back, with a book and a coconut shell full of your favourite cocktail, on spotless white sands. Bali truly is a heavenly getaway.

Areas & Neighbourhoods in Bali

Denpasar — Denpasar is Bali’s capital and the island’s busiest tourist destination. A visit here ticks off many of Bali’s key attractions, including the Bajra Sandhi Monument and Serangan Island, which is popular for surfing. Denpasar is also where you’ll pick up a souvenir, such as a local batik sarong or a Hindu-inspired sculpture.

Kuta — Once a fishing village, Kuta is now a luxury resort renowned for its white sands, temperate waters, active sports and exciting nightlife. Perched atop a 70-metre high cliff nearby, you’ll find the luwatu Temple, one of Bali’s key spiritual sites. It’s definitely worth seeing if you need a break from the beach.

Ubud — Bali isn’t all about beaches and watersports. The hillside town of Ubud is one of Bali’s key centres of culture. It is home to museums, galleries, the famous Kings' Tombs at Gunung Kawi temple and the Ubud Monkey Forest – a specialised nature reserve brimful with macaques!

Mount Batur — Although visible from almost anywhere on Bali it is surprising how quickly Mount Batur blends into the landscape. A visit to this active volcano is, therefore, well worth the trip. Offering unsurpassed views across the island’s liquid blue coastline, the volcano also has some wonderfully relaxing natural hot springs.

Things to See in Bali

Escape the tourist hotspots with a half-day Bayad eco-trek, where you’ll discover exotic creatures, beautiful cave systems and crashing waterfalls under the watchful eye of a local guide. Alternatively, get a tropical workout through the island’s iconic rice paddy fields with a Jatiluwih rice paddy bike tour. If you prefer to keep it local and escape the heat, a private morning tour of Denpasar is perfect for seeing the archaeological and cultural heritage sights of the city before the afternoon sun begins beating down.

Things to Do in Bali

If you tire of the great outdoors or need a break from the sun, why not discover Bali’s unique blend of flavours with a Balinese Cooking Class in Seminyak? Otherwise, simply exfoliate and rehydrate with an Aroma Spa Retreat. Perhaps you’d rather have a go at paddle boarding? If so, there’s no nicer to place to fall in the water than in Bali’s warm ocean waters. However, with a private stand-up paddle boarding lesson you’re sure to keep on top of things. With so many things to do in Bali, it’s quite likely that you’ll be planning your next visit before you’ve even finished your first!
