Bali Indonesia is a small island only 5,780 km2 in size, yet offers so much! Being a small tropical island in around the equator, Bali is surrounded by beautiful beaches, which means activities around water are widely offered. Although Bali island is small, there are 2 mountains in middle of it, one of the mountains is an active volcano that was recently erupted. Meaning activities around the mountain is also another interesting activity that can be considered. Here are top 5 activities that you must do when visiting Bali:
- Beach Hopping
The beach lines in Bali Island is unique. Every side of Bali offers different kind of beach. The best beach in Bali can be found on the south side, as the Bali Beach on the south side have pearly white sand and blue to turquoise color of the ocean. Further to the west and east the beach sand color start to change to black, affected by the volcano that was erupted long time ago. Going from one beach to another would be a nice experience, starting from Sanur Beach to see a beautiful sunrise then from there go to the beaches on the southside to end the day with a beautiful Sunset like in Blue Point Beach.
Bali offers numerous experiences for trekking, mountain trekking or jungle trekking. Each one is very interesting in their own way. The best jungle trekking we would recommend the one on West Bali National Park. The reason being why is because you can find wild animals along the way, yet the background of the trekking is north side of the ocean with beautiful sunrise. The beach at this area also white sandy. The next one is Mount Batur Trekking, climbing the mountain early in the morning to find a beautiful sunrise above the clouds. Both trekking will be one hell of experience that you must enjoy during Bali visit.
- Water Sport
There are quite a number of water sports that can be done in Bali, starting from Snorkeling or diving. Best spot for snorkeling in Bali would be in Tulamben, as in Tulamben there’s a shipwreck at 20 meter deep with a lot of corrals around. Amed is another good spot for snorkeling and diving is Amed, located next to Tulamben, then Menjangan island. If you’d like to swim with friendly Manta ray then you can go to Nusa Penida Island. Surfing, Jetski, Parasailing and other watersport activities can be done in Nusa Dua area as well.
- Quadbike / ATV ride
Sometime like 10 years ago, white water rafting was quite common and being done by most tourist visiting Bali. Bali Has so many rivers flowing from the mountain making it ideal for white water rafting. But those were old school, now the market is shifting. ATV ride is now commonly offered in many places in Bali. ATV is a quad bike with 4 wheels, quite easy to drive, and riding it in the forest in tropical weather can be quite fun. The most popular ATV ride in Bali is Kuber ATV, for some very good reasons. The venue of Kuber ATV is in Ubud, going through a local village, a jungle, rice field, then a 750 meter long made cave and finishing up on a river with a waterfall at the end. It is beautiful, fun and exciting at the same time.
- Island Hopping
There are some islands around Bali only few minutes boat ride to reach. Menjangan Island is located on the west side of Bali right across the West Bali National Park, then we have 3 rows of islands on the East side of Bali, Lembongan Island, Nusa Penida Island and Gili Air. All of them will take only 20 minutes to reach on a fast boat, and each island offer different beauty of the beach, corrals and attractions. Visiting all of them is a must when coming to Bali. There are countless of instragammable places on all island that you cannot missed when visiting Bali.
Bali can be extremely hot for most tourist, therefore don’t forget to always apply sunscreen when doing some outdoor activities.
