Bali is one of over 8,000 inhabited islands in the Indonesian archipelago, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east.
The island is home to a vast majority of Indonesia's Hindu minority, while most Indonesians follow Islam. It is renowned for its highly developed arts, including dance, sculpture, music and painting.

But the Balinese landscape is as exuberant as its ceremonies are colourful. The ashes of its active volcanoes have blessed the island with natural riches and an incredibly fertile soil.

This combination of spectacular natural beauty and a vibrant culture offers endless opportunities for exploration.
You can trek through rice fields or witness a Bali sunrise from the rim of a volcano, watch dancers at play or enjoy a soothing massage. Or renew your wedding vows on a romantic location, surf one of the many beaches along the southern coastline or go scuba diving. All of these activities are synonymous to Bali.

But Bali's best known attractions are its countless Hindu temples. Three of these are 'must-sees': Uluwatu at the southern tip of Bali, is easily accessed and hence the most popular, with Tanah Lot a close second. However, for the Balinese themselves, the ‘Mother Temple’ of Besakih on the slopes of Mount Agung is the most important of all.

To help you discover these and other highlights on the island, we have designed a selection of  daily activities and roundtrips for you to choose from.
