The beach life

It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind while you sip a cocktail and get lost in a good book. Surfing and diving are amongst the most popular attractions on these beaches, making them an ideal spot for all kinds of tourists. Expect spectacular seafood and mouth-watering rice dishes served in authentic Indonesian restaurants around the island, washed down with popular Indonesian beers Bintang and Bali Hai.

Throughout the year, the daytime temperatures average between the mid-20s and low 30s, the only changes are the humidity and precipitation.
As well as its beaches, Bali draws people in with its unique and welcoming culture. Balinese people take life slowly, with a more authentic experience the further north you travel. Visit the Tanah Lot, an ancient temple with amazing views, and the Garuda Wisnu Kencana for a collection of Hindu statues in beautiful green surroundings. Fancy a challenge?
