It would be difficult to miss more adventures over at the west side. It has the best snorkeling spots in Bali. One of this is Menjangan Island. A 45-minute boat ride from mainland Bali, the island is a remarkable place to see the magnificent marine life, experience helmet diving and watch the colorful coral gardens in their natural habitat.
Hunting explorations are also widespread in Western Bali. Pack the basic hunting gears and accessories like a cheap but reliable hunting scope, an easy-to-use and accurate rangefinder, and the classic binoculars. This place boasts a great diversity of wildlife like Bali myna, civet cats, and reptiles among others.

Embrace one of the island’s northern gems that is Lovina, famous for its black sand beaches. If you want to skip the usual tourist routes, and stray away from the hustles and bustles of Indonesia’s metropolitan cities, this is the place for you. Aside from the laid-back vibe given off by the town, you can start your day watching the dolphins or even swim with them as much as you like!
On the eastern part of Indonesia is Gunung Agung, the highest peak in the country. As this mountain is not a beginner climb, with 45-degree angle trails, hiking to its summit is a test of wits and patience. As part of the Ring of Fire, the mountain has had a series of eruptions for the past years and it is better to be on the lookout for volcanic events prior to planning your trip.
East Bali also prides itself as the home of Pura Besakih, Bali’s holiest temple if you are up for a more chill adventure.
Down south, located are Bali’s most popular destinations – review the Balinese culture with Denpasar’s temples and museums, surf at Uluwatu’s fierce waters, and party at Kuta’s cream-colored sands.
A little further is where a beautiful coast is situated. Nusa Ceningan’s incredible blue waters are worth mentioning as well. A lot quieter than Uluwatu, and with lesser activities than Legian beach, spend your time lounging at this white sand beach, dubbed as Secret Point, at the southeastern coast.
With these spectacular spots, no doubt, Bali has proven to have the best destinations in the world.
