Bali is a laid back beach island full to the brim with surfers and yogis. The islands south is dotted with stunning white sandy beaches that have large waves that are perfect for surfing. Some calmer areas are heavily used for snorkeling where you will see a plethora of colourful tropical fishes.
The island’s center, an area called Ubud, is where you will find the many hippie/yogi types and the city carries a very earthy vibe. With some world class restaurants, rich green rice fields and many temples to visit this is a super unique area.
The north of the island is more reserved for locals with no huge touristy areas. Rock lined beaches lead way to some of the most spectacular dive sites in all of Southeast Asia. With ship wrecks, walls of coral and gardens of sunken Buddha statues there is lots to be explored below the sea.
This island is one of many in Indonesia but with a rich culture and such vastly different landscapes it can easily leave you with countless stories. We know we left with many. Read them below.
