From beaches to Buddha—Bali’s got it all

To many people, Bali is considered paradise, but to us, paradise is more than sand and turquoise water. We discovered that this magical island is filled with many treasures waiting to be explored, like the thousands of Buddhist temples that face the sea, the warmth of the Balinese people, and the unspoiled rugged landscape dotted with volcanoes and lush jungles. If you’re looking to add a little more spirit to your next beach vacation, then let yourself be seduced by this exotic island.

Why visit Bali?

Beautiful beaches

This tropical oasis boasts beaches that people only dream about. Surrounded by turquoise water, this paradise is a snorkeller’s heaven, as it contains some of the world’s most beautiful coral reefs.

Spiritual awakening

Referred to as the Island of Gods, Bali is bathed in spirituality. Explore Hindu traditions by visiting one of Bali’s 20,000 temples, or better yet, experience a sunrise at Pura Ulun Danu Bratan.

Colourful culture

The Balinese people are as warm as the weather, and its vibrant culture is infectious. Explore the heart of it, by taking a culture walk in Ubud, the home of the island’s most talented artists.

Nature at its finest

Bali isn’t just beaches, it also has some of the most jaw-dropping rugged landscapes. Explore its picturesque rice paddies, lush jungles, or take in a sunrise over the volcanic peaks of Pura Besakih.
