Things to do in Bali

With its heartbreakingly beautiful scenery and wonderful year-round weather, with its fascinating history and ever-so intriguing culture, it’s easy to see why Bali is often referred to as the Island of the Gods.

Packed with temples and beaches, shops and restaurants, wildlife and nightlife, Bali can most definitely offer you a relaxing holiday filled with nothing but beachside massages and cocktails, or an exhilarating adventure packed with excitement! It’s all covered!

Thrill-seeking Adventure

If you’re looking for an active holiday, this is a thrill-seeker’s paradise. For surfers, Bali is a dream destination. Not only is the water warm all year-round, the breaks can see near-perfect conditions thanks to Southern Ocean swells.

Expect consistent surf up to 3.5 metres from April to November, with surf between half a metre and two metres the rest of the year. You may have to wait a while in the line-up in some of the busier surf spots, but there are other out-of-the-way breaks that are near-empty.

If surfing isn’t your thing, why not try some river rafting? There are three main white water rafting rivers in Bali, namely Ayung River in Ubud, Telaga Waja River in Karangasem, and Melangit River in Klungkung.

There are heaps of tours offering river rafting adventures around Bali, so be sure to check them out to find the best option for you. Whether it’s a family fun adventure or a thrill ride for experienced rafters only, it’s sure to be an unforgettable, action-packed outing.

Natural Wonders

If you want to see more of the natural wonders on Bali, there is more than enough to keep you occupied.

Say hello to the monkeys at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud, discover a spectacular underwater world scuba diving or snorkelling Bali’s reefs, or explore the many waterfalls on the island.

Gitgit is the most visited waterfall in Bali, and Aling-Aling is perhaps the most fun waterfall, however, the Sekumpul waterfalls are often considered to be the most beautiful in Bali. While the trek may be arduous, the astounding beauty of these seven waterfalls is well worth the effort.

But no matter how you spend your time in Bali, be sure to set aside a spot on your calendar for some much-needed relaxation. The spas in Bali are simply incredible, offering everything from a quick massage to a full day of pampering.
