Visit Diamond Beach

In Bali lies one of the most beautiful beaches you have ever seen! One that came straight from the postcards. Diamond Beach is an untouched, white-sand beach with silky blue water bay on the eastern tip of Nusa Penida.

White expanse, beautiful blue water, and palm trees on the foot of an enormous limestone cliff are the perfect description for it. Diamond beach in Nusa Penida Island might have the title ‘most beautiful place in Bali’ and therefore a must-visit!

Explore paradise Gili Air

From snorkeling with turtles every day just minutes from the beach, swimming in crystal clear water, scuba-diving at the dozens of different nearby dive sites, trying all the different cafes & restaurants, and marveling at the most glorious sunsets every night – you’ll certainly fall in love with Gili Trawangan!

White sand, turquoise water and bikes as transportation. Yes, Gili Air is car-less! Ok, the Gili islands aren’t part of Bali but you have to make it one as this experience should not be missed and you have to make it as a part of your Bali tour package.

Stay with a local family

Get to know the Balinese local life by staying with a local family. One of the things you must do in Bali is to get to know the island. Experience how the real Balinese people live their daily lives, help them do their work, taste the incredibly tasty food they eat, know the culture and hear some stories. After these days you will leave a lot of new friends behind.

Sunrise in Munduk

Bali is well-known for its paradise-like coastline, rice paddies, and powerful waterfalls. The mountains of Bali are where the real beauty of this island is hidden. Munduk is a quiet, cooler, green region, in the north of Bali far from the packed streets of Seminyak and Canggu.

Munduk is higher up north in Bali and the climate is more foggy and rainy, which makes it greener than near the coast. No matter if you’re a morning person or not, make sure to experience the sunrise in the Munduk region!!

Monkey Forest in Ubud

In the heart of Ubud is a forest without a fence where monkeys roam free. It is one of the holiest places in the area. In the confines of the forest, visitors can observe monkeys in close quarters going about their monkey business: mating, fighting, grooming, eating, and, occasionally, interacting with humans.

The big old rainforest is a beautiful walk and at some locations, the monkeys are relaxing or getting fed to keep them calm. Don’t worry, there are monkey police if they start to get annoying. 

Kecak Fire Dance

For those of you who have never seen the Kecak dance, it is one of the regular traditional dances of the island of Bali, which offer the concept of a dance drama. The Kecak dance is unique for its no use musical instruments to accompany the dancers. Instead of using the instruments, voice from the mouth is the dance accompanist. Apart from not using musical instruments to attend the dance, the number of dance participants is also huge. The average number of participants for the Kecak dance is about 50 people, up to 150 people, excluding the leading dancers. Furthermore, most of the dance participants are men.

The Kecak Fire Dance is a dance performance in Bali. A group of 65+ human vocals acting as instruments that strengthen a story told in the form of dance. Witness the dance at sunset on a cliff-top amphitheater at Uluwatu Temple or in the center of Ubud town.
