Bali Beach Holidays

A beach holiday to Indonesia’s best-known island, Bali, comes with so much choice. There are a lot of busy beaches here, but you’ll also find hidden gems. On the southern tip of the island, the hugely popular Kuta has the best sunsets, which have become a tourist attraction in themselves. For a hedonistic party vibe, head to Seminyak or Kerobokan. On these trendy shores, visitors gather at sunset to admire the luminous skies, before making their way along the tempting beach bars and Balinese restaurants. If you’d prefer somewhere quiet and romantic, visit the tiny island of Nusa Lembongan, just across the Badung Strait. The wildlife is abundant, the scenery’s spectacular, and the water is clear as could be. And, while these blindingly-white beaches are popular with surfers, they’re rarely crowded. But if you’re planning on a beach holiday with children, the family-friendly coastal district of Sanur is the place to go. Sanur beach is home to fine sands and long winding paths – perfect for walks or cycling. You’ll also see Balinese locals flying brightly-coloured kites in the coastal breeze. 

Why is Bali the perfect beach destination?

When you book a beach break to Bali, you don’t have to worry about the weather. Thanks to its proximity to the equator, the temperature stays pretty steady all year round. But, like any tropical destination, Bali does have a monsoon season – October to April is the hottest time of year, but it’s also the wettest. On the plus side, the heavy downpours tend to be sporadic, so you can still enjoy plenty of beach time. Generally, temperatures have a remarkably consistent high of 29–30 degrees Celsius, with a night-time low of 20–23 degrees. As well as sunshine, you’ll get to experience the go-slow pace of life in Bali – with plenty of religious festivals, ornate temples and friendly locals. The food is delicious, too. Recipes tend to follow Indonesian traditions, with Satay – a variety of meats on skewers, dipped in spicy sauce – being a popular street food on every corner. Babi Guling is another speciality. Made from spit-roast pork, stuffed with rich traditional spices and vegetables, this dish should definitely be on your list of foods to try. 

Must see places in Bali

Holy Smoke

Bali’s reputation for spectacularly beautiful scenery stems from its pristine beaches – but it also has a symmetrical, perfect cone-shaped volcano. The 3,000-metre-high Mount Agung is the most sacred point on the whole island. It’s also considered to be a perfect replica of the central axis of the universe, Mount Meru. Every temple in Bali has been designed to face the volcano, and locals even arrange their bedrooms so that they sleep with their heads towards the holy mountain. Traces of Bali’s volcanic rumblings can also be seen on the island’s rare black-sand beaches – if you want to see them for yourself, head to the little bays around Amed Beach, on the eastern tip of the island. These are also some of the quietest spots to spend a lazy day in the sun, with the colourful Jukung boats and local fishermen to keep you company. 

The Richest Seas on Earth

There’s another reason that Bali’s beaches are so sought after – particularly by snorkellers and scuba divers. The island sits in the middle of a coral triangle, consisting of 600 different species of coral, which attracts tropical fish, turtles and other marine life. The diverse Bali coral triangle is known as the ‘Amazon of the Ocean’ because of the sheer amount of wildlife, which is double that of the Australian Great Barrier Reef. Snorkelling by Bali’s beaches is a must for wildlife-lovers. You can also take a short boat trip to Gili Trawangan to see a turtle conservation centre. Up to 50 baby turtles are being raised there, so they can be released back into the wild. Lovina Beach on the northern coast is also popular for dolphin-watching – lots of boat trips are available. 

Bamboo Buildings

Bali’s temples are a must-visit, with their ornate, colourful decor. But one of the island’s most-visited buildings has a very different purpose. Bali’s chocolate factory is a large, fully functioning producer of the sweet treat — and the building is entirely made out of bamboo. You’ll find the Big Tree Farms Bamboo Chocolate Factory in Abiansemal. If you take a tour, you’ll be treated to a drink of Coco Mojo on arrival, and given a sample of the company’s cold-pressed cacao. But this isn’t the only chocolate factory on the island. This treat is so popular with both visitors and locals that there’s a handful of artisan factories that use locally-produced, organic cacao to turn out hand-crafted chocolate goodies – the perfect souvenir to take home with you.
