Best things to do in Bali and sightseeing in Bali

Kuta - Bali

Kuta is a surfer's paradise and the party lover's favourite stop in Bali. Everything about Kuta is out of the ordinary, be it the ornate bars and restaurants or the scenic views. A lazy day by the beach and a crazy night at the beach bar, Kuta is an experience over just a destination.

Kuta got developed as a backpacker’s paradise but now attracts all kinds of tourists. Head to hypnotized on the beach walk mall for some good house music and free flow of beer. Sky Garden has a lot of hype but I personally did not like the place much because its expensive and dingy. A great hangout was the Reggae bar besides Sky Garden, where you have live music till midnight and the DJ plays after that. Bounty and Paddy's club besides that is another great place for a beer and to shake your leg a little bit.

Ubud - Bali

Ubud is very culture driven and does not have that many bars or pubs. Happy Mango tree is a great hostel and the bar here is nice, otherwise the only party place here is the CP lounge, which is open till 3 am. The place is huge and has live band till midnight and then the DJ plays popular house and hip hop numbers.

This place is magical. I feel wrong even trying to describe it.. I just think that you should go and experience it. Yes, there are so many tourists.. and unless you find a small restaurant with just local food, everything is a bit more expensive. I was totally alone 90% of the time I was there because it seemed filled with just families and couples. Now for the good things: It is the perfect place to wander around and get lost. You start walking and soon you're surrounded by rice fields and friendly locals. The local food is amazing, and the tours offered are of incredible value. Every night they have traditional dance shows, Legong and Barong. You have to get there very early to get a good seat, depending on which location you go to. I saw a show at the Ubud Palace at the top of Monkey Forest Road, and couldn't see a thing. The next night I went to the Water Palace and got a seat near the front and it was amazing. When you arrive at the Denpasar airport, your only option to get to Ubud seems to be by a taxi for a set price of $25USD. Traveling alone and not wanting to spend so much, I had a breakdown. In retrospect it was ridiculous how upset I got, but I'm kind of glad that I did. I don't know what I imagined would happen by my saying 'screw this, I'm going to just start walking' but way past the line of taxis, there were men with motorbikes. The one offered me a ride to Ubud, and I agreed. I think I ended up paying about $15 for the 45min ride still, but it was the coolest ride! Because we were on a motorbike, we could weave in and out of the back roads of Bali, through the villages taking shortcuts. Probably a dangerous decision, but I was really trusting at this point of my trip. He dropped me off at one of his friends' guest house near Monkey Forest Road, but not right on it. After a lot of negotiating, he offered me my private bungalow for $10/night. I woke up the next morning, took a freezing cold shower, and sat on my private porch to read my map. His wife walked over with the cutest puppy, and asked what I would like for breakfast. I looked puzzled.. I didn't know breakfast was included! She brought over a banana crepe, iced coffee, and a bowl of fresh fruit. This was every morning when she saw me on my porch. The sweetest family, and I will stay with them again next time without a doubt. The day before I had to get back to the airport, Ketut (the man) called up his friend with a motorbike to see if I could do the same thing to get back, rather than pay the crazy high taxi price. His friend agreed to pick me up at 4:30am so I could get to the airport in time. I went outside at 4:30 the next morning, and started to panic that the guy forgot. Then, at 4:35 Ketut came out and sat with me while I waited. This was the sweetest gesture.. I can't say I would have done the same for some strange girl too cheap to book a regular taxi. Tip: Find your way to the Campuhan Ridge Walk. Make sure you do this. 2nd Tip: If your craving for western food kicks in, you have to go to Umah Pizza. Wood oven, large pizzas that are so delicious, and sooo cheap! They will even give you a box to bring your leftovers home. Their local dishes are amazing as well.

Mount Batur - Bali

One of the highlights of our trip. You start from the base in the midnight and hike up the volcano to catch the sunrise. Trek difficulty I would say is Medium since it is climbing all the way for about 3 hours and the terrain is a little bit rocky and it is pitch dark. Remember to wear something warm since it gets cold in the night. Even though we couldn't really catch the sunrise since it was a little cloudy, it was a wonderful experience trekking up to a star-studded clear early morning sky and having breakfast up there.

This place is full of monkeys and yes, temples but mostly Monkeys. There are 3 temples inside and all of them are closed for tourists. Mostly people come here to see the monkeys in the forest and it is fun! Do not go in with bananas else the monkeys will climb on top of you. There are a lot of places in there where you would feel you are on the sets of Indiana Jones! A must visit in Ubud.

The lady at the inhouse first aid center told me all those monkeys had been vaccinated against rabies. Something I’d rather believe than doubt, especially after getting bitten (‘mildly’) by one while feeding it. She said those monkeys send about five people to the first aid center there everyday, and that day I happened to be among the select few. It was a tiny bite but getting clambered over by a ‘hangry’ screeching monkey is not everyone’s cup of tea, so if you do want to pay the monkeys a visit, you’ve been warned.

Nusa Dua Beach - Bali

How different it would be if there were No History Books? No World Wars? and no threats? Do you think it would have been easy if the whole world was just a single family? Do you think it would be fun? I’ve always had opinion about things , people and places and most of the times i still stick to my beliefs. It wasn’t until i decided to take a step ahead to travel alone . Where was I going? I was going on a journey alone willfully and now i believe that all women must travel solo atleast for a few times in their lives. Here me out to the 5 crazy experiences that I’d never thought exist. Learn to trust people – If at night 3 AM you are boarding a bike taxi with one really unkown guy and he is safely dropping you till your hotel , trust me the random travellers are more trustworthy then your age long boyfriend

This beautiful island off the coast of Bali is a romantic adventure. With a luxury cruise, it will swwep you off the mainland to show you the richness and beauty of the local culture. The island is a secluded yet an encompassing experience with some great culinary delights and even better views.

Catch a boat from Sanur and you can reach this chilled out little island in 90 minutes. Again there’s not much to do but enjoy the white sand beaches, dinner on the beach and tootle around on your scooter. There are no cars here and just one little road that goes all the way around the island so it’s the perfect place to learn to drive a motorbike. I did (on a manual no less!) and then never did it again (4 years and counting). Bali traffic is scary!

A temple sitting on top of a rock formation. When it is low tide, you may walk on the rocks and get really close to the temple. Do not however, you are unable to get inside the temple.

There are quite a number of temples you can visit. Some of them would require you to put on a sari before entering the premises. Some would also have donation boxes at the entrance, while some would require an entrance fee which usually costs around Rp 10,000. The architecture of these temples are really interesting and each temple has a different story and represent a different element. Witness a commanding view of the Indian Ocean in Tanah Lot.

The next day I ate up Tanah Lot, a famous Hindu temple built on a rock. Once upon a time it might have been attached to the island but is now atop a rock pile on the shore of Bali. The whole place is like a religious garden, smaller temples are hanging on cliff tops on either side of the main attraction and I couldn't help but be reminded of the Twelve Apostles off the Great Ocean Road in Australia. There, great rock outcrops and eroded land masses stick up out of the sea where they had once been part of the coast line. I always think they are an ever present reminder of the power of the sea.

Kintamani - Bali

I was now headed up towards Kintamani to catch the sight of the majestic Mt.Batur (Volcano) and the lake Batur. Temperatures dropped up here and it was even more peaceful to catch the sight of the majestic Mt.Batur emerging out of thick clouds (its always mostly cloudy – i was told that i am lucky to catch a full sight of it that day ). I decided to have lunch here. I would probably rate this one of the best lunch place ever. What a Majestic view to have with some hot noodle soup and bintang beer.

Lots of people include Kintamani in a day trip where they have a quick look at the volcano, get hassled by touts selling souvenirs and eat an overpriced lunch. It’s worth it for the view but I would also totally recommend heading downhill to the foot of the volcano and exploring around (preferably on motorbike). there’s some gorgeous scenery and crazy volcanic landscapes.

If you go away from civilization that you discern and now despise, Kintamani is your paradise. You can opt for many adventures activities here from canyoning to opting for cycling tours. Apart from this Kintamani is home to Pura Ulun Danu Batur, one of Bali's key nine directional temples.

I would suggest you arrive close to sunset to enjoy the sunset and seafood dinner. What is so special is all the restaurants have their tables and chairs facing the sea! Imagine your toes in the sand, listening to the waves and enjoying dinner. There are a number of restaurants to choose from. Please do not jump on the first restaurant you come across. I suggest you walk around 3 to 4 restaurants to have a look at their menus (some even have set menus) and compare prices. As there is competition for these restaurants, no harm doing a little comparison to see what fits your budget and taste-buds.

Away from Kuta is Denpasar, the capital city of Bali, and it is a rather sprawling, low rise town, easy to get lost in, but also easy to find your way out of. In itself it is not a tourist destination, being more an assortment of functional streets, but there are a bunch of major sights worth seeing in and around the city. What I liked most about Denpasar is the plethora of small restaurants, many of them vegetarian or at least having a specific and substantial vegetarian menu. Walking around Denpasar is not easy, the footpaths are broken and used by shops to display merchandise. Most locals ride a bike.

This four century old Hindu temple is located in Mengwi village, about 18km from Denpasar. The village itself is worth a visit. The temple is separated from the surrounding land by a moat and a series of garden terraces. Entry into the grounds is not allowed to visitor, but the inner buildings can be seen, and photographed. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and with lots of tourists.

All palaces in Ubud are similiar if you are a tourist like me. The architecture seemed the same to me. Ubud Palace was no exception. Right outside the Palace is the Ubud Market which is like a maze with 3 levels. You find everything from clothes to fruits and souvenirs. Steeply priced but feel no shame in bargaining and paying only 10% of the price marked.

Tirta Empul Temple - Bali

This is a Hindu temple in the centre of Bali. It is famous as its holy water can wash away sins. To participate in this ritual, you first need to buy a ticket, then proceed further into the temple. Keep going, just follow the crowd, and you will come to a series of open air rock pools where you can immerse yourself to whatever degree you feel is required, to wash away your sins. I merely dipped my hand into the water. This temple is popular, with both locals and visitors, it is always busy. Take care when walking on the rock, it is slippery. There is a happy feel to the place. Much laughter and good cheer.

Tirta Empul is a holy water temple, sourced from the sacred Tampak Siring spring. This 1,000 year old temple has largely been unchanged. The temple houses purification pools for locals who practice Balinese Hinduism. The temple's long rectilinear pools are carved out of stone, and feature fountainheads that fill the pools with the holy spring water. Worshippers first make an offering in the inner-court temple, then climb into the main pool to bathe, pray, and collect the water in bottles to take home. The water is believed to have curative and prosperous powers. I certainly felt refreshed and renewed after taking a dip!Tirta Empul Temple includes the traditional Balinese split gate architecture (photographed below) along with shrines to Shiva, Vishnu, Braham, Bali's Mt. Batur, and Indra. On the grounds is a large community pavilion, where you will see many families and tourist relaxing and taking in this wonderful site.Tirta Empul is located in the village of Tampak Siring, you can drive independently via google maps (as I did) or have your hotel's concierge arrange transportation. The drive is spectacularly scenic, you will cross narrow bridges, see verdant junglescapes and paddy fields, venture through tiny villages, and come across hundreds of ancient temples along the winding road. The drive is 30 minutes from Ubud.

Tegallalang - Bali

Woodworking villages North of Ubud, are woodworking villages of Tegallaland and Jati, where generations of families are involved in the wood working and carving process from beginning to end. The intricacies of the carvings are phenomenal and range from the highly ceremonial to the phallus shaped bottle openers – a quick buck from the tourists. Each village tends to specialise in a particular theme – like animals, figures, or concepts that are more abstract. Indeed the settings of the villages in itself is worth going to, and seeing even the children carve and sand, makes you totally in awe of their gifts.

One of the most popular rice field in Bali is the Tegallalang Rice Terraces, located just 15-20 minutes from Ubud. Built by the Balinese people using minimal machinery, it was engineered in such a way that the fields would be hydrated all year by the water from the top of the mountain.

If you’re just going to see one temple then you may as well make it the biggest and best. Besakih or ‘Mother Temple’ is impressive any time but even more so if you can visit during one of the big ceremonies that happen only very rarely. I’ve heard tourists having a lot of problems visiting here because they’re forced to hire a guide so I say wear balinese dress and find a balinese family to bring you :)

USAT (United States Army Transport) Liberty Wreck, Tulamben This snorkel site is directly across from the Puri Madha Hotel. This 120m long American ship was built in 1915 and came to Indonesian waters during World War II. On January 11, 1942 it was torpedoed by the Japanese, then dragged to deep waters because the wreck was a hazard to navigation. After the volcanic explosion of Mt. Agung in 1963, the ship moved closer to the shore because of the lava greatly shifting the coast line. The snorkeling here is fantastic. Colorful soft and hard corals as well as fish make their home in this wreck, which is in three large pieces. Sometimes over 100 divers visit the site at the same time so it can be crowded!

Pecatu - Bali

It takes about an hour to drive to the lovely little beach of Padang Padang in Pecatu from the mouth of hell. As you leave Jimbaran and follow the signs to Uluwatu, the road starts to transform in a building site. Half-started development upon development sit next to garish plastic billboards and giant signs promise a tourists' mecca to come. The beach itself is gorgeous. Yellow sands, bright blue turquoise seas that I haven't seen since Thailand. (Most shallow water looks quite dark here as many of the beaches are a dark volcanic sand). Maybe it's the high concentration of surfers nestled in the waves and in the seated crowd lining the shore, but the vibe here is quite relaxed, there's something a bit Thai, maybe even a bit North Devonshire about it. The walk down the steep cliff steps and the long, right peeling break flowing smoothly does seem to add to it. The green back roads coming up to Padang Padang remind me of Woolacombe, North Devon. As you climb the hill, the air becomes cooler underneath pockets of shade from the trees along the road and the lack of traffic hints at the undisturbed countryside. The trees are guarding the roadside and pavements have been abolished! Fresher air, fewer cars and great big coaches clogging up small roads- distinctly Devon!

Pura Jagatnata - Bali

This is an impressive looking temple, and if you like temples, this is a must see. Though, as you approach, you will be approached by locals who wish to offer you their services as a tour guide. These people will invariably say that they cannot ask for payment, as they are a Hindu, but that you can make an offering to them, depending on how well you consider their tour guiding to be. Personally, I prefer an upfront price (something you can negotiate with), rather than this pseudo-modesty. Also, these guys in reality, know little about the Temple. So, don’t expect too much. If you do accept their offer, say 20,000 rupiah ($2) is an acceptable sum, though they will tell you that the previous visitors paid them $10 (or $20, or whatever).

Before enjoying the beaches of Bali, i wanted to learn about the culture and the heritage of Bali. My wonderful Taxi Driver Walen just knew the right places to take me to. I went to see some kind of Fire Dance/Local Balinese Cultural Dance. This show went on for 1 hour. Although i could not exactly understand what this dance drama was about- it was certainly entertaining to see the colorful dancers and their passion for theater. Balinese People have deep regard in protecting and maintaining their ancient roots and culture.

Padang Bai - Bali

"So this is the place I should have been for the last two months", was my first thought as I wound my way through a sexily curved hill. Padang Bai is a small, annexed fishing village with a little bay, a secret white sand beach (that's the beach's actual name) a few warungs and guest houses and some deep emerald hills directly behind. Despite its' fishy orientation there's a freshness there that is missing in South Bali. It's the lack of bike fumes and rubbish. Most people pass through on their way to get their rocks off on Gilli-T. Big mistake, this place gets my vibe.

Tanah Lot Temple - Bali

We drove to this place from Ubud. Beautiful temple on a cliff with waves washing its feet. A little bit touristy but you are sure to catch some awesome pictures during sunset.

Lake Beratan Temple Tour - Bali

When we arrived at Lake Beratan at the top of the mountain we were quite hungry. We parked on the edge of the lake and umm and ahh'd over which Muslim bakso stall to eat at. We spent the equivalent of 50p on our lunches of bakso soup and nasi goreng, and once full we ventured to the botanical gardens and Pura Ulun Danu Beratan. The temple rests on a platform that protrudes in to the vast lake, clouds fringed the surrounding hills and we were shrouded in a protective grey fluff that began to quickly descend towards us like a mother intent on swaddling her toddlers from a bath. We were overcome with a highly meditative feeling of peace and safety, however the threat of rain in those grey comforting pillows and the coming night, take us away to find our bed, and some beers beforehand. The journey back saw us enjoy the great curving bends of the mountain road in the precipitous mountain air, while we saw the same bikes over take us and drop back over and over. Tired, smelling like road, the setting sun got into our eyes. We high-five'd children leaning out of a slow moving truck which which passed in the opposite direction.

Bedugul - Bali

I love Bedugul. It has a pretty temple and a gorgeous huge botanical gardens that costs next to nothing to enter. You can bring a picnic or buy strawberries from the market and have a feast. i wish it was just a little closer so we could take the kids for a run around on the grass without the 90 minute car journey. Also Bedugul is at a high altitude and so a lot cooler than the main tourist areas. If you can catch it on a day when it’s not raining, it’s really quite lovely. Oh and you can hire a boat to go around the lake!

MAS - Bali

Intricate and massive, artful yet natural, it was quite the example of the Balinese way of combining human artistry with natural beauty. Took three wood carvers three weeks to carve this out of the roots of a litchi tree. Sometimes ‘epic’ is too small a word.

Goa Gajah - Bali

This is a Hindu temple, and a popular tourist attraction. To get there, buy your ticket, and walk (run?) past the numerous vendors selling the usual range of tourist trinkets. Then descend some steps and you are in the temple area. There are numerous Hindu structures, figures and symbols, all in stone. What you are looking for is the entrance to the cave. This is immediately obvious, due to the large, demonic figure carved in and around the cave entrance. Walk in, take a little care as the floor is slippery, and you will come to a T junction a few metres in. At both ends of the T are lingam and yoni statues, and a statue of Ganesha. Feel free to take a photo, everyone else, including the locals does. You can take a short jungle hike on several paths leading from the temple.

Jati Home Stay - Bali

Jati Homestay is right in the middle of Ubud. Almost all the places are just walking distance from this location. The people there are very friendly and everyday along with breakfast, the owner will come and sit with us and help us with our itinerary. They even arranged cars for us to go to Mount Batur Sunrise Trek and gave us tickets for the Kecak dance, all at the bare minimum expense.

Telaga Waja Bali Rafting - Bali

If you are looking for a little adventure in Bali, you gotta try the White Water Rafting. If you are hiring a private driver, see if he has any recommendation. Most of the drivers will be able to offer you a special rate as they have a contacts with the operators. If you have a waterproof bag, you may bring it along because there are rest stops along the way where you can snap pictures! When rafting, please DO NOT go barefooted. It is highly advisable to rent their sanders. I went barefooted because based on my past experience white water rafting was safe. However, my raft flipped twice in the river and I was unfortunate to have drifted a couple of metres downstream. As my feet was not protected, I had deep cut which required stitches. So, safety first!

Ubud Market - Bali

This is a place you can purchase your souvenirs and reasonably priced clothes. You may realised after walking around for quite a bit, the items which each shop sells are quite similar. Therefore if you are eyeing on something that you would like to buy, please bargain bargain bargain! If the shopkeeper does not agree to the price you quote, just say "no" and walk away. Most of the time, the shopkeeper will give in because there is very fierce competition in terms of pricing.

Blanco Museum - Bali

This is an art gallery, which exhibits paintings of naked and topless Balinese women from a half century ago. Great. It is also a restaurant, cultural centre (Balinese dance), and is based around the work of the late Spanish artist Don Antonia Blanco. This guy arrived in Bali back in the 50s (Franco’s Spain), was given land by the local King, and proceeded to spend his life painting nude Balinese women. Now his home is a gallery. His paintings are certainly worth a visit, he could wield a brush, but no photography allowed.

Yeh Pulu - Bali

This is a 15th century set of rock carvings, which can be reached on foot from the town, though it is a few kilometres. From the entrance, a long walk down, on sometimes broken steps, there and back is maybe 4kms. During my visit in January 2014 I was surprised by the absence of vendors, also by the lack of other visitors. This is not on the tourist trail.At the end of your mini-trek you will seen a ~50 metre long line of rock carvings on your left. These depict scenes from every day life, in the good old days. The carvings are worn, but clearly discernable. The principal feature is a statue of the Hindu god Ganesh. If you wish, you can make (after buying from a little old lady nearby) an offering here.Near the entrance is a good, small restaurant, the Yeh Pulu Cafe. Owned and managed by an enterprising Balinese woman. Both Yeh Pulu and the restaurant are recommended.

Villa Sanggingan - Bali

We stayed at Villa Sanggingan on Jalan Sanggingan and it was fantastic. The staff is incredible. Located near the Alberto Blanco museum where we went in 2008 with Dov Fraser for the Ubud Writers Festival, this area is removed from the main tourist strip. The hotel is available on Asiarooms.com, Booking.com and Agoda.com. We stayed five nights and ate at several great warungs, including the famous N as well as Fuzion Café on Jalan Lungsiakan, which felt like dining in a rice field. I thought the décor was charming; this is one of the original hotels in the area and along with the Neka Art Museum, has been there more than twenty years. Bagus (Good) Laundry was great, too. I have to admit clean clothes, fresh from the laundry, are one of my favorite things!

Umajati Retreat - Bali

I arrived in Bali two days prior to my stay at the Umajati Retreat, wanting to see the island on my own terms, I decided to rent a scooter. After all, this was my very first solo travel experience. I'm so happy I opted for this mode of transportation, it felt so freeing to just drive wherever I chose to. No schedule...no worries. Just me...Bali...and my bike.The drive to the Umajati Retreat was pure magic, zigzagging through tiny backstreets, over narrow ravine bridges, and through lush paddy fields, I couldn't have painted a more scenic route. The closer I got to the retreat, the more pronounced its signature terra cotta roofs rose from a sea of greenery. Stepping onto the retreats grounds, I was equally enamored. I meandered through the coconut grove entry path, filled with spectacular blooming orchids of varieties I had never seen. Waiting to welcome me at the paths end were proprietors, Jean Howe & William Ingram (Made Pung 3rd founder). They are the kind of people you want to sit with, have some tea, talk of distant places, rich cultures, and stories of their well-traveled lives. Jean and William are apart of Umajati’s authentic soul; this wonderful environment they’ve painstakingly crafted is a true gift to experience.

Gunung Kawi Toko - Bali

This was the most impressive site I visited in Bali. It is a 11th-century temple complex, a series of rock-cut shrines and images, carved into a cliff face, built for a king and his wives. It is a little far from Ubud town for an easy walk, so public transport, a tour, a bus, a taxi—up to you, as we say in Asia.You start at a long walk down, on stone cut paths, lined with the usual tourist shops. Eventually, you will come to a T junction, turn left, and there are the first set of rock excavations, large openings cut into the rock. This has been referred to as a city, and it does indeed look like a very small city. Return back the way you came, cross over a small bridge, and you will have reached the shrines. These are five small structures, cut into the rock. There is holy water here as well. From here, go back a little, and you will see a small city, with building like structures also cut into the rock.

Amed Beach Resort - Bali

We went to Amed on a weekend trip when i was a few months pregnant with Maya. Made was bored stiff but I loved it here and I’m itching to go back. There’s not much to do, true, but what else do you need when you have that gorgeous black sand, rolling seas and dramatic sky? Also there are dolphins! It’s the perfect place to relax, in my opinion.

Bedugul Botanical Garden - Bali

This temple is located 1,500 metres above sea level as such you will get to experience some cool breeze and weather. You are unable to enter the temple but definitely worth a picture because of its lovely backdrop.

Lake Batur - Bali

Lake Batur is the widest lake in this island. It lies next to an active volcano. You can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the lake along with the hot spring by the lake. To capture the glorious sunrise overlooking the lake, you can even opt for a sunrise trekking tour on Mount Batur. Engage in the spiritual mountains while attaining peace amid lush green tress, wide lakes and cold atmosphere.

Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking - Bali

Yes, this is hard work ; Especially trekking at 3 AM in the morning and all I can say is , IT IS WORTH IT!. I packed like a girl with flip flops and no sports shoes and I still managed to trek in the loose volcanic sand and stones for around 1.5 hours to 2 hours. I could see people flashing their torch light at my silver shiny disco flats as they panted and overtook me. But meh, same destination. I met them all up there and saw the same sunrise they did. Raw beauty of nature intimidates me and that is what happened there. Just staring straight ahead while the sun was rising was all I needed to be at peace with myself for rest of my trip. Please pack proper shoes and a nice light jacket to face the chilly wind up there, unlike me.

Sekumpul - Bali

Sekumpul Waterfalls You start by walking down a well paved path and stairs to get a few nice elevated views of the waterfalls from afar. Then it gets interesting. You need to cross rivers! The waterfalls however are totally worth the ‘experience’. They are phenomenal. You need to have a bit of a swim in the pools at the bottom to cool off.

Menjangan Diving - Bali

The Menjangan Island is a spectacular place to Snorkel & to dive! When you reach the place you find like a casual sea.. But who knows it has so much treasure underwater! The island is divided underwater into parts like the Coral Garden, the ship wreck, the cave, etc! It is basically a Marine National Park. We had to take 2 hour drive from Seririt where Zen is located and from the national park, a local fisherman boat loads all your diving equipment and takes you to the Menjangan Island which is 30 mins away! Being Sea Sick, it was pretty much difficult for me in that situation! Well it was a secret until now, because its hard to believe for people that a Swimmer can be Sea Sick too! :P
