Bali is a paradise for all travelers, from honeymooners seeking tranquility to vacationing families searching for adventure. Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway or an epic journey with your loved ones, the must-do activities in Bali offer something exciting no matter what kind of trip you’re taking!

For those seeking relaxation and tranquility, Bali offers an abundance of secluded beaches ideal for sunbathing or seeking out hidden coves where you can take advantage of snorkeling opportunities.

Bali’s captivating tropical settings provide ample opportunity for exploration, whether embarking on treks through dense forests or venturing into bustling towns filled with cultural sights. If you’re craving action, don’t forget to try our exhilarating water sports – all available at nearby resorts!

Whether it be for leisurely activities or thrill-seeking escapades, there’s a plethora of adventures awaiting you in Bali that cater to all interests and climates!

Go Horse Riding on the Beach at Sanur

At the end of your journey, refresh with an invigorating equestrian excursion; this activity is ideal for those who desire a less strenuous day out. Sanur Beach Resort is located on one of Bali’s most frequented beaches, so why not give horseback riding a try? While you are at it – don’t forget to bring some provisions!

Experience a unique opportunity to gallop on Sanur’s serene waters where dolphins swim alongside horses. This stellar beach experience provides an exhilarating getaway that is sure to delight any travel enthusiast!

Visit the Temple of the Monkey God

If you’re an active person like myself, my suggestion is to venture out into the countryside and explore some of Bali’s famous temples. The Temple of the Monkey God is one such place that is sure to please even the most discerning traveller.

With its captivating combination of contemporary design and a centuries-old temple structure nestled alongside rice paddies and stilted huts perched precariously atop wooden plinths, this remarkable edifice impresses with its unique ambiance.

Watch a Traditional Dance Performance

Bali is renowned for its rich culture and traditional dancing performances abound.

If you’re traveling with children, consider taking them to an event where they can get up close and personal with their favorite deities; these activities are an ideal introduction into the Balinese lifestyle!

Though these events may be more suited toward the younger set, I was able to witness a captivating performance at the beautiful Udayana Museum in Ubud. Over 200 years of dance tradition culminated here in one unforgettable evening – from intricate choreography to bright costumes during this captivating display from The Dance of Shiva.

Climb aboard a traditional vessel for a relaxing excursion along the serene coral shores of Nusa Dua Beach Club Resort. They offer fascinating insights into coastal village life through informative boatside talks as well as live music performances throughout each day’s cruise!

Visit a Balinese Village

When you embark on an excursion to Bali, don’t overlook the opportunity to explore a village. Explore the rich culture of Indonesia’s dynamic rural landscape with a visit to one of these quaint settlements and be captivated by their simple yet soulful lifestyle!

Village tourism in Bali has been gaining momentum over the past two decades, giving visitors a chance to get up close and personal with life here on the island.

It’s best to visit these villages off-peak season, between April and October, when travelers can find more opportunities for accommodations that cater specifically towards their needs; as well as having more time to devote towards unpacking one’s suitcase than rushing through an exhaustive checklist while traveling.

Tryang Kembang (literal translation: push boat) Fishing

If you’re visiting Bali during the summertime months and seeking an authentic experience in the country, then tryang kembang fishing is a must!

Just off of Sanur Beach, this idyllic retreat serves up an unparalleled opportunity to take part in an activity ancestral to the island’s inhabitants. You and your companion can board one of two motorized vessels; however, it is imperative that only one person occupies each vessel as per local customs – which adds yet another layer of intrigue!

With little more than a bandana and sarong for attire, you’ll soon find yourself cast into the serene waters of Sanur Bay where it is not uncommon to encounter dolphins or even whales along with a multitude of tropical fish swimming within reach.

After initiating contact with your captor-turned-fishing buddy, it’s time to venture into the open ocean! Your boatman will skillfully navigate his vessel while deftly maneuvering between rocks and coral reefs so that both he and his passengers may indulge in some al fresco dining at sea.

See a Traditional Bali Performance

If you want to experience the essence of Bali’s rich culture and traditions, don’t miss a performance at one of its many javanese-themed dance halls.

If you’re seeking something more elevated than a mere luau, consider attending an intimate night at a traditional sarong dance hall. You may even be able to appreciate the elegance of this intricate ritual during your visit!

Jalan Sanur is home to numerous venues featuring musical and dance performances from renowned performers such as Iboga Ballet and Indonesia Arachnid Dance Group.

Go Skin Diving

Contemplating an excursion to one of the most alluring regions in Bali, and stumbling upon its legendary sea treasures, is one of life’s most alluring delights.

Perched atop a conical rock, Nusa Lembongan boasts a small harbor sheltered from the fierce surf of the Indian Ocean. Its remote location offers guests a chance to explore the surrounding coastline unencumbered by infrastructure or crowds – ideal for those seeking an unparalleled experience!

Vast fields of moon coral beckon divers yearning for an exciting adventure with little risk involved. These magnificent mollusks are teeming with life beneath the surface – even boasting stingrays and other oceanic inhabitants that can be encountered along their journey through the crystal waters!


Regardless of your preferred mode of transport, Bali has something fun and exhilarating for you! From thrilling water sports to exhilarating flights through the skies, this island boasts a plethora of opportunities for adventure. Moreover, if you’re in search of cultural enlightenment as well as relaxation – then don’t forget about its array of eclectic dining experiences!
