Ensuring you discover the best of Bali, a true haven for tourists, regardless of the duration of your holiday, here are 7 leisure activities you can try out during your visit:


Explore Bali's only national park

Presenting, Taman Nasional Bali Barat, covering 190 sq km of western Bali, 70 sq km of coral reef and picture-perfect coastline and 550 sq km of lush greenery. The park features 300 species of birds including the extremely rare Bali Starling and 200 species of plants along with animals such as black monkeys, leaf monkeys, barking sambar, rusa, pythons and much more. If you are staying over a long period on the island, consider Bali Villas for sale, as they offer the perfect setting for families or groups to stay and explore Bali's offerings such as the national park. Establishments such as Bali Top Villa Rentals can help you find the ideal accommodation space for you.


Visit Pura Luhur Uluwatu

One of Bali's six key temples that are believed to be Bali's spiritual pillars, Pura Luhur Uluwatu is located on a cliff 70m above sea level. This symbol of Balinese architecture showcases beautifully designed gateways and sculptures along with spectacular sunsets overlooking the Indian Ocean.


Check out Bali's 'Mother Temple'

Perched over 3,200 feet above sea level on Mt Agung is Besakih Temple with a rich history dating back over 1,000 years. The Besakih complex consists of 86 temples and is the largest and holiest in Bali.


Get up, close and personal with grey long-tailed macaques

Trek through the Ubud Monkey Forest and check out its inhabitants. The forest is also known as the 'Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal'. The 14th century temple, 'Pura Purana' and one of the three key village temples 'Pura Dalem' are also located within the forest.


Visit the Ubud Art Market

Locally known as ‘Pasar Seni Ubud’, this is the place to head to if you wish to procure souvenirs. The streets here are lined with shops that sell gorgeous scarves, hand woven bags, shirts, accessories and many more handicrafts.


Trek to Bali Volcano

Kintamani Volcano and Mount Batur are together known as Bali Volcano and located in the central region of the island. Be prepared to be captivated by spectacular views of Lake Batur and surrounding areas. There are three villages in this region along with a few ancient ones along the Batur Lake.


Watch the sunrise as you kick back with your favourite drink

Indonesia’s favourite hot-spot also showcases amazing sunsets. What better way to enjoy one rather than kicking back with your favourite drink after a day of exploring the island? Rock Bar, La Laguna, Single Fin, Potato Head Beach Club, La Plancha and El Kabron are some of the best bars in town to check into at sundown. Each of these spots has their own unique ambience and chilled out vibes, making them all crowd favourites.
