Bali's Three Elements: Discovering the Island from All Perspectives
If you're looking for more active and exciting ways to explore Bali beyond just lounging on the beach, you've come to the right place. In this article, we will introduce you to several captivating ways to connect with Bali's nature on land, in the water, and even in the air.
Explore Bali from the Water and Underwater!
Bali is located in the Coral Triangle, where you can discover the wealth of underwater life. There are numerous places where you can enjoy observing colorful coral reefs, tropical fish, jellyfish, and even turtles.
Besides the vibrant marine life, Bali is one of the few places in the world where you can encounter giant manta rays and even swim alongside them. These majestic creatures gracefully glide through the water, slowly flapping their wings, providing you with an incredible sensation of being close to these remarkable beings.
This delight can be experienced in the waters around the picturesque Nusa Penida Island, which can be reached from Bali in just 40 minutes by boat or by joining our group tours.
Yacht Party Cruise
Ever dreamt of being the star of your own movie, leisurely sipping cocktails on the deck of a pristine white yacht as the sun sets? Whether it's a special occasion or just a memorable evening with a large group, a yacht party with cocktails, a DJ, panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, and, most importantly, Bali's magnificent sunset, is the perfect choice.
Our cruise takes place aboard the 36-meter Shivanna, the only premium-class yacht on Bali's western coast. If you wish, you can indulge in a sumptuous barbecue, or for those seeking intimacy, there's the option to reserve the Captain's Lounge, serviced separately.
The route meanders along the island's western coast, offering breathtaking vistas of picturesque coastal landscapes. Along the way, you'll be treated to a spectacular view of Tanah Lot, an ancient Hindu temple perched on a rocky islet, one of the seven "sea temples" constructed in the 16th century.
Bali offers plenty of diving spots, but one stands out as truly extraordinary, attracting divers from around the world. Beneath the waters of the island's eastern coast lies the sunken ship, USAT Liberty, constructed in 1918. In 1942, it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and washed ashore, and in 1963, a volcanic eruption propelled it into the ocean. Since then, the ship has become a vibrant home to various fish species and corals, resembling the setting of an enchanting underwater fairy tale.
Resting just off the shore, the ship sits at a depth of 30 meters, with its upper part as close as 3-5 meters from the surface. This accessibility allows both beginners and seasoned divers to explore it with ease, requiring only a bit of training with an instructor. It is one of the most easily reachable shipwreck sites in the world, offering hours of captivating exploration.
Bali is home to more than 40 surf breaks, making it undeniably one of the world's prime destinations for catching your first wave.
Surfing is a year-round activity on the island, but the best waves tend to roll in during the dry season, spanning from April to October. Bali offers sandy, gently sloping beaches like Kuta, ideal for novice surfers to hone their skills. Meanwhile, there are more challenging spots like Uluwatu, known for its sharp reefs and towering waves, which cater to the seasoned surfer. For newcomers, Bali has a well-developed infrastructure, including several surf schools, some of which offer instruction in multiple languages. So, if you're eager to ride the waves but lack experience, the island provides the perfect environment to get started.
