ACTIVITIES we ENJOY and RECOMMEND
Bali ATV Tours
The Bali Quad and Bali Buggy tours bring you to a part of Bali where you still can find old traditions alive. You will drive yourself with a specially designed off road car or 4-wheel motorcycle that copes with all kinds of terrain through an authentic part of Bali, passing rice fields, crossing jungle and driving through some Balinese kampongs (villages).
Bali Adventure Tours
The Elephant Safari Park is one of our favourite places to visit in Bali and their white water rafting is great fun.
Bali Bird Park
The Bali Bird Park is a great day out for everyone, the Bird Park is also a beautiful garden and has a restaurant and you can also see the KOMODO Dragon. Right next door is the Bali Reptile Park also worth a visit as you do get to walk amongst the reptiles (the friendly ones).
Bali Safari & Marine Park
The Bali Safari & Marine Park is another full day of activities. Don’t forget your bathers as beside the restaurant there is also the Fun Zone and Waterpark. A great place for the kids to use up the last of their energy and for adults to cool down and relax after enjoying the Safari Journey.
Bali Treetop Adventure Park
The Bali Treetop Adventure Park is a great day out. Located within the Bedugul Botanical Garden it is a great opportunity to experience the cooler climate of Bedugual. While there you can also explore the Bedugul Market (don’t miss out on their delicious strawberries when in season) and the Bedugul Ulun Danu Temple picturesquely set beside Lake Bratan.
Desa Seni is a village resort which you are welcome to visit, enjoy their organic food at their restaurant and cool down by their pool. There are regular Yoga lessons and retreats, so check out their schedule.
Rimba Reptil Park
The Rimba Reptil Park is bigger than it looks and when I visited with my son and Aunt, we were very pleasantly surprised at how much fun and how interesting it was. The rest of the group had decided to relax at the Bird Park restaurant while we took a quick look. Boy did they miss out. I think it has something to do with the warm climate, as I have never seen reptiles as active as these ones and with more than 181 specimens, what was meant to be a quick look turned up to be much longer.
SUP is Stand Up and Paddle. If you have never tried to SUP, well now is your chance, and it’s never too late. Pete has taught young and old.
If you come with kids then it will be unlikely that you won’t be leaving until you have spent a day at Waterbom Bali . Don’t worry, you’ll enjoy it too. The lazy river is good start for everyone, the landscaped gardens are lovely and give opportunities to sit on a sun lounge in the sun or shade. There are good options at the food hall and you can even duck out across the road for a little bit of last minute shopping at the Discovery Mall while the rest of the family have fun.

It is home of a pilgrimage temple, the Pura Tanah Lot (literally “Tanah Lot temple”) and a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography and general exoticism. Beautiful at sunset, you can also see the famous Balinese Kecak Dance which is performed every evening.
