5 Best Water Sports in Bali – Enjoying the Tropical Seas

Bali is one of the best places to visit in South East Asia. One of the reasons for this is the sheer variety of water sports the island offers. Bali's calm blue waters are ripe for some exciting adventures and thrilling experiences – here're 5 of the best water sports you can try out here.


Go Surfing

Surfing is one of the most popular water sports al around the world, and Bali is no exception. Take any of the major beaches the island has to offer, and you can be assured that you'll spot some surfers trying to ride the tidal waves. In fact, Kuta Beach which is considered to be Bali's most popular strip of coastline, owes its fame to surfing. Kuta is a great choice for both amateur and veteran surfers, with different sections of the coast offering up waves of various difficulty. If you're looking to ride some particularly challenging waves, consider a visit to the black-sand beaches of the Bukit Peninsula. There are also plenty of surfing variations that you can try out here in Bali. These include bodyboarding or even kitesurfing and windsurfing.


Try Snorkelling

If you're staying at one of the prominent and famous Bali family resorts – say, for example, the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali – chances are, they'll have snorkelling on their itinerary list. Snorkelling is the easiest way to experience all the wonder and excitement that's concealed beneath Bali's coastal waves. A plethora of coral reefs flourish along Bali's coast and these provide refuge for a menagerie of marine life. A few great snorkelling locations include Nusa Lembongan and Pemuteran. Additionally, all you need to get started snorkelling is to bring your mask and you'll be able to access almost every snorkelling spot on the island.


Take a Dive

Snorkelling is a great way to explore beneath the waves, but for the most part, it's limited to the shallow coastal water. If you want to explore Bali's seas to the fullest extent, you'll want to give scuba-diving a go. As you are no longer having to stick to the water's surface, you can take your time and reach greater depths. This will let you swim with oceanic giants like manta rays and whale sharks as well as the opportunity to visit the derelict remains of ancient shipwrecks.


Walk on the Sea Floor

Of course, you can forsake swimming altogether and just start walking along the seabed here in Bali. For those who aren't particularly fond of swimming or lack diving certifications, a walk along the sea-floor is perhaps the best way to experience the beauty of undersea life. You'll find several sea walker operators all throughout Bali, including the famous Sanur Bali Seawalker. Essentially, you'll be donning dive helmets and sea shoes. Once you reach the sea-floor, you will be surrounded by all manner of reef fish that will be darting around.


Ride a Banana Boat

A ride on a banana boat can be one of the most fun was to experience Bali's cool waters. Essentially, you'll be riding on an inflatable dingy that's tugged by a boat. It's a wild and bumpy ride but chances are you'll be absolutely ecstatic the whole way through.
