Palm-fringed beaches, lush green mountains and rich spiritual traditions… it’s easy to see why they call Bali the ‘Island of Gods’– it’s as close to paradise as holidays come.
If you’re looking for a dose of that faraway feeling, you’ve come to the right place. A place where waves crash against rocky cliffs topped with ancient temples, surfers weave among the breakers on the horizon, monkeys chatter in the treetops and seafood sizzles on beachfront grills – Bali is exotic turned up to 11.
Offshore, snorkel around tiny outlying islands, spot dolphins in the spray, or simply bob in the clear blue ocean. It’s tropical on a turbo scale. Elsewhere, mist-swirled volcanoes and bright green rice paddies dominate Bali’s centre, while the north, west and east of the island are quieter and less developed.
Popular east coast hangouts include Pasir Putih for its white-sand beach and Sidemen for its alluring rice fields. In north Bali, head to Pemuteran for incredible diving and snorkelling at nearby Pulau Menjangan.
Mind-blowing scenery aside, Bali is populated by some of the friendliest people on the planet – wherever you go on your trip to Bali, you’ll be greeted by smiles. With outlooks sunnier than the local weather forecast, the Balinese people are bound to make you beam. Bali is a place of heart-warming hospitality that will keep you coming back for more.
While there are over 17,500 islands in the Indonesian archipelago, Bali stands out for its gentle Hindu culture. Amble among crumbling temples, get an earful of tinkly gamelan music and chomp on traditional chicken rice.
Think Bali, think beaches - the island is home to some of the world's best. And while the more famous ones are well worth a visit, there are plenty of under the radar spots to discover too.Read moreabout Beautiful Bali: 10 of the island's best "secret" beaches
