Bali is an Indonesian island that is well known for its sandy beaches and coral reefs. It’s been a popular travel destination for couples and lone travellers for some time now, and in recent years it’s becoming more and more popular as a family travel destination too.
Bali has lots to offer its visitors. In addition to the beautiful surroundings, the accommodation on offer is just as exquisite. Family villas in Bali offer up the chance to truly relax and unwind. With private pools, well-manicured gardens and tropical-style indoor-outdoor spaces you really can just sit back and relax.
Bali is the perfect travel destination for all types of travellers. Individuals can get back to nature, reconnect with themselves and spend their time catching on some reading, meditating or just relaxing in the heat of the sun.
Couples can go on a romantic trip, enjoy boat rides and candle lit dinners. They can spend the day at the beach or exploring the island before retreating back to their villa for a cosy night in.
There’s plenty for families too, so be sure to read on.
In addition to its beautiful sandy beaches, Bali is also know for its forested volcanic mountains, lively bars and relaxing yoga retreats.
Children and adults alike are sure to fall in love with this idyllic island. While most people think of sandy beaches, Bali also offers up a whole host of activities to suit your needs.
For those who love the outdoors, there’s watersports such as jet-skiing, water skiing, surfing, banana boat rides and for those after a more leisurely past time there’s always snorkelling and diving in the coral reef to see the various tropical fish. You could even take a trip on a fishing boat to see what the island of Bali looks like from the water.
Children can learn to surf at one the islands surf schools where courses are available for children under 13 years old. My twin girls would love to do this, as would I!
Away from the beach, you’ll also find plenty to keep the whole family entertained. Bali has an extensive range of unspoilt nature attractions, mystical temples and well-curated museums.
