Bali is a magical place for all sorts of travellers from backpackers to luxury holidaymakers. The island is packed with accommodation ranging from beachfront villas to expansive private estates. It is also a mecca for spas and massages. There are many different activities to enjoy here too including hiking, cycling, river rafting and other cultural tours. The people here are overwhelmingly kind, generous and genuine and it’s nearly impossible to leave this paradise feeling less happy and healthier than when you arrived.
The island is located 8 degrees south of the equator and has a typical tropical climate which means warm temperatures all year round with two distinct seasons. The dry season has cooler weather and less humidity but is also more crowded and flights and hotels are more expensive.
This part of the island has a lot to offer from stunning white sandy beaches to surfing spots perfect for beginners. There is a big cafe culture here too and it’s not uncommon to see European, American and Australians zooming past on scooters with surfboards in their hands or sitting at a cafe working on their laptops.
There are also plenty of waterfalls to visit in Bali from the famous Sekumpul Waterfall to hidden gems like Banyumala Twin Waterfall. Bali is also known for its beautiful traditional artwork which can be seen everywhere from intricately carved temples to colourful masks and paintings.
