Sick of surfing? It might seem like a stretch, but after a few straight days (or maybe even weeks) on your board, you might start craving for something new to set your heart pounding. Luckily, Bali has a lot more to offer than mere killer waves. The best part? After a day in the jungle or diving beneath the waves, you’ll be more pumped than ever to get back onto your board.
Sick of the noisy streets of South Bali? Hop on a bike, join a guided tour and prepare to see a totally different side of the island. From rice paddies to sleepy villages and from luscious green jungles to wild packs of road side monkeys, one thing’s for sure – we’re definitely not in Kuta anymore. There are several tour operators on the island offering bike tours of varying lengths for different experi-ence levels. Biking is a great opportunity to explore the island while also working up a sweat.
If you’re looking to gain some new perspective, Bali Treetop Adventure Park has got you covered! Located in the scenic Lake Beratan area in northern Bali, the park offers several zip line circuits which send you flying across the jungle, offering a bird’s eye view of the island. The impressively named Adrenaline Black Circuit promises big thrills with breathtaking jumps. Trust us – it’ll make you feel like a kid again.
After riding the waves for days on end, it might be time to explore the world that lies beneath the waves instead. Bali and the surrounding islands offer great opportunities for snorkelling and diving. For a truly unforgettable experience, head on over to Tulamben in eastern Bali. A diving excursion to the shipwreck of USS Liberty is guaranteed to be a day you’ll never forget. After visiting this spooky shipwreck up close and personal, you’ll never look at the waves quite the same again.
White Water Rafting
If you’re really looking to set your heart racing, white water rafting is just the ticket. It’s also an awesome opportunity to get a feel of the great outdoors as this wild and wet ride will take you through scenes of luscious rainforests and emerald green rice paddies. There are several vendors operating from and around Ubud, which is only an hour’s drive from South Bali. This adrenaline trip is a fantastic opportunity to leave the world behind and to live in the here and now.
