Bali, in Indonesia, is known as the “Island of God” for many good reasons. The butter-soft sands, sunsets that take the breath away, endless opportunities for water sports and the freedom to explore to one’s heart’s content on rental cars, scooters and motorcycles make Bali one of the most desirable and relaxing holidays available today.
While there are jungle trails to explore for those who enjoy hiking and walking, Bali is most famous for its beaches, which attract travellers from around the world. Water sports are one of Bali’s largest attractions. The beaches to the north feature black, coarser volcanic sand, while the beaches along the main west coast are known as some of the finest in the world. Snorkelling, surfing, bathing and beach volleyball are amongst the activities visitors enjoy taking part in.
Across from the famous Seminyak Beach, some of the liveliest nightclubs in the area attract young people with their music, dancing and variety of cold drinks to cool off with after a day under the golden tropical sun. From dancing to moonlit strolls along the beach to bathing to bungee jumping, Bali offers something for everyone.
Petitenget Beach is home to an ancient temple, and the quieter sands make a perfect spot for those who prefer meditation to wild activity. Stroll along the mysteriously beautiful secluded beach, and reconnect with something more ancient and eternal when visiting Petitenget.
Whichever of Bali’s incredibly diverse and beautiful beaches you choose to visit, there’s something for everyone in Bali. Surfing, sailing, swimming and snorkelling are just a few of the water sports enjoyed by visitors. Beach volleyball, strolling along the warm sands and exploring the reefs and spectacular sparkling clear waters are all great ways to pass the long, lazy warm hours. As a romantic tropical get-away, Bali can’t be matched.
