Above all, visitors come to Bali to see the amazing scenery – stunning terraced rice fields, dramatic river gorges, tropical waterfalls and ancient Balinese temples. You can take a prearranged tour by bus or hire a private driver to enjoy the countryside at your own pace.


Several professionally-run companies operate on the Ayung River, north-west of Ubud and on the Unda River, north of Klungkung. Recommended for all ages.

Sport Fishing & Dolphin Viewing

Game fishing , reef or deep-sea fishing, or even dolphin viewing are available. The catch could be tuna, mahi-mahi, cod, mackerel, marlin, snapper or coral trout.

Water Skiing

Jet skis, boats and water-skis are available for hire at the beaches of Sanur & Nusa Dua. For those who don’t like the salt, these sports are also available at Lake Bratan.

Surfing & Body Boarding

The areas of Padang Padang, Nusa Lembongan & Uluwatu are for the pro’s, Kuta & Legian Beach are good for beginners, Medewi Beach is for amateurs, Nusa Dua for experienced surfers. Best times are from September to March. Canggu (for experienced surfers) is popular with the locals.


Sanur Beach and some of the Nusa Dua Resort hotels rent boards and provide tutoring.


Bali’s highest mountain, Gunung Agung, can take between 3 to 6 hours to climb. It takes one day to reach the summit of Gunung Batukaru and return. Guides are recommended. For rock climbers there is a state-of-the-art, 110sq meter climbing wall in The Adrenalin Park.


The Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club is set in an extinct volcano in the beautiful countryside of Mount Catur. This 18-hole course is a world silver-medal golf resort. On the southeast coast golfers can choose between the Bali Golf & Country Club, an 18-hole course in Nusa Dua, or the 9-hole course at the Grand Bali Beach Hotel, Sanur. Golf equipment is available at all courses.


Most cyclists can find their own way around Bali; in addition, there are some river-rafting companies offering day trips on mountain bikes. Cycling is a great way to see Bali off the beaten track.

Horseback Riding

Some of the most amazing scenery can be seen riding through the parts of Bali that usually only the Balinese get to see. Rides through rice fields or along deserted beaches can be arranged.
