Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and for good reason, because this island, known as the “Island of the Gods”, is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Surrounded by mounting seas and sharply golden beaches, Bali is, of course, a surfer’s paradise, and if you are looking for a beach holiday, then there’s no better place to find from this beautiful island in the middle of Indonesia.
Like the sea and sand, however, Bali has a huge number of other attractions to enjoy as temples, caves, waterfalls, museums and markets, and if you want history and culture, then you can spend hours learning local legends and Balinese traditions in places like Ubud.
If you like adventure activities then you will also not be disappointed in the journey here, and you can expect a fantastic range of water sports, darkness and ruin diving, and the chances of flying through the jungle to the canopy like Tarzan.
In short, no matter what you want to do, you will probably find it in Bali and you can easily spend a month here and you still see only a part of the places. The hardest part of the holiday here is the choice of where to go first and what you want to see.
If you have not surfed before or just look for some gentle waves, then you must reach the most famous beach in Bali, which is Kuta Beach. The beach sits in the sand, which means it has rolling surfing without any sharp ridge and you can rent a board here and sign up for a surfing lesson or rent a board if you want to try something a little hard.
The locals and visitors come here to watch the sunset and you can relax on the sand with cold beer and drink in the atmosphere.
Where to eat:
Baby Bengil Bebek Bengil means “Dirty duck” in Indonesian and is one of the most beloved restaurants in Ubud. The restaurant supports a pretty field of rice, and the main specialty here is a duck that comes in different dishes.
The signature style here is bebek betutu which is cooked in a souff made with aromatic herbs and then rubbed with local spices. The duck is then fried until it is crunchy, and the skin is purple, and then served with simple rice and vegetables.
Jetpack in Tanjung Benoa Tanjung Benoa is a place to come to Bali if you want to test water sports and you can find a number of different activities that are offered. One of the most exciting, however, is the turning of a waterfall that will allow you to fly to the sky to a height of 10 meters and sessions usually last about 20 minutes.
One of the great ways of falling aircraft is the chance to take in the beauty of Bali from the air, and even if you have never done something similar before dedicated instructors will teach you how to fly in a safe and controlled environment.
Go to the Tana Lot Temple
Tana Lot Temple is probably the most famous attraction in Bali and is a Hindu temple that is at the height of a large and scenic rock formation. Over the years, the sea has separated the rock from the mainland, and in a large tide, the rock is completely surrounded, making this one of the most beautiful places in Indonesia.
Many people come here for sunset around the temple, so be sure to go early to get the best place to watch the spectacle. When the tide is low, it is possible to pass sand to the temple.
Hiking to the Mount Batur
Anyone seeking an adventure in Bali should head to Mount Batur, which stands at 1,700 meters above sea level. This is one of the most famous volcanoes in Bali and you can visit the top that usually starts around 4 am.
This leads you to the peak of time to see the spectacular rise above the crater and the mountain is surrounded by an incredible lake. This is also one of the easiest routes in Bali compared to the larger mountains, so if you want to say that you have set off for a volcano then this is a good choice.
