Bali truly is a place for sun, fun, excitement and really great value, check out our awesome Bali Island Hopper Tour with travel dates between January and March 2019. Here's what you can expect.
1. Keep it beachy
Sand between your toes, crystal-clear water and coconut cocktails – this is what Bali island holidays are made of. Savour fresh ocean fare with a seafood BBQ at laid-back Jimbaran Bay. Relax in super cool Kuta. Feel the vibe in trendy Seminyak with 5km’s of powdery white sand packed with beach bars and restaurants. For unforgettable family fun on immaculate white sand, head to Nusa Dusa. Then watch the world go by at stylish Echo Beach in Canggu. And there’s plenty more where that came from!
2. Party on
If you’re a bit of a night owl, you’ve come to the right place! There’s no shortage of party hot spots to choose from all over Bali. Follow the party scene to the southern coast in Seminyak, Kuta and Legian. Take your pick of relaxed beach-side bars, massive multi-level clubs with international DJs or elite nightclubs where the island’s most stylish strut their stuff.
3. Get adventurous
Adrenalines junkies have plenty to look forward to in exciting Bali. Whizz along on a tree-top canopy tour. Feel the rush on a white-water rafting adventure. Hike or bike through lush volcanic craters, jungles, mountains and glittering lakes. Go jungle buggy bashing along tropical forest trails. Then stop off at a local village for a hair-raising cup of kopi luwak - the world’s most expensive (and intense) coffee.
4. Surf’s Up
There’s no better place to hit the waves than the beaches of Bali. If you’re a bit of a beginner, head to Kuta, Legian and Seminyak where the waves are a little more chill. You’ll also find plenty of professional surf schools to help you find your feet. For those that really know their surfing stuff, Padang Padang and legendary Uluwatu are where it’s at.
5. Temples, temples everywhere
It’s no secret that Bali is big on temples. There are literally thousands strewn across the island. There’s a good chance you won’t be able to see them all, so make sure to tick some of the mostmust-see ones off your list. Don’t miss the famous Tanah Lot, perched on a rock just off the shore. Honour the Water Goddess at the Ulun Danu Water Temple. Explore Goa Gajah’s intricate rock-wall carvings, meditation cave and bathing pools. Watch the fascinating traditional Kecak dance in the amphitheater at Uluwatu. And visit the massive Besakih ‘mother temple’.
