Bali is a heavenly island belonging to the Indonesian archipelago on the Indian Ocean. It is one of the world’s main tourist destinations, a place full of magic, exoticism and beauty where you will enjoy an absolutely unforgettable holiday in an incomparable natural setting. Besides its incredible beaches, Bali offers all sorts of adventure tours in the most beautiful settings as well as countless relaxing or exciting activities. Here is a list of some of the most interesting activities and adventures you can enjoy in Bali.
Among the many activities that you can enjoy in Bali, golf must definitely be at the top of the list, not only because it goes perfectly with the atmosphere and relax of the island, but also because golf courses in Bali offer stunning sightseeing and great golfing conditions. There are 7 main golf courses in Bali, namely the Bali Golf & Country Club, the Nirwana Bali Golf Club, the Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club, the Bali Beach Golf, the Finna Golf Course, the Jagorawi Gold and Country Club and the New Kuta Golf Club. All of them are quite challenging and offer varied and fun rounds. But most of all, the climate in Bali is ideal for golfing and for holidays and the natural environment is absolutely outstanding, with the dramatic ocean views and lush Balinese landscapes.
You can’t say you like adventure and not join one of the countless trekking tours in Bali! We do recommend you either to join one of these tours or to get yourself your own guide, since it is fairly easy to get lost in some of the tracks on the island. There are all sorts of routes you can take, and they are all amazing. You can trek through rice paddy fields -which are quite unique-, through rainforests and bamboo forests, through picturesque villages -like the village of Taro, one of Bali’s oldest Hindu villages (3000 to 4000 years old!) and home of the renowned Sacred White Cows of Bali-, through all sorts of plantations of tropical trees that give fruits you’ve may never have heard of, like the salak or the durian or up mountains like Batur, Agung or Rinjani.
Sailing may sound less adventurous than trekking but is certainly an exciting experience in Bali. The best way to do it is on sailing catamarans, which are quite fast and very stable. You can rent the catamaran for as long as you want and for any time of the day -remember that sunrise and sunset in Bali are quite spectacular!-. Moreover, when getting a catamaran you don’t need to merely go sailing; you can also fish, dive, surf, go visit some special sites or animals -like the impressive Komodo dragons- or just enjoy a relaxing day in the middle of the sea.
