Try Some Thrilling Activities Outdoors with Bali Holidaysby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
Bali is a globally renowned tourist destination located in Indonesia. This beautiful province comprises the main island and other smaller islands nearby. It has been visited increasingly by tourists since the late 19th century and tourism is a major contributor to its economy today. The island of Bali is well-known for its rich cultural heritage, ancient temples, and enchanting beaches. TripAdvisor had named this island as the top destination in the world in its Traveller's Choice award in March 2017. During your visit to this Indonesian island, you'll get to explore its most popular attractions and indulge in some thrilling adventures outdoors.
Among the activities you can enjoy during your Bali holidays is white water rafting. It gives you the chance to witness the lush green rainforests of the highlands, small waterfalls, and some excellent varieties of flora and fauna. The regular rafting tours are held on the Ayung River by the local tour operators. One of the most adventurous is the Telaga Waja River's 14-kilometre course. It consists of Class II and Class III rapids, which would give you the right doses of adventure. You can also ride the inflatable raft of your preferred size by opting for canyon tubing while in the Payangan village.
This island of Indonesia also has some fabulous spots for surfing enthusiasts. Surfing began in this part of the world when the rolling waves touching the southern shores were discovered by surfers in the early 20th century. Along with the perfect environs characterised by sun and sand, these waves have become a favourite of those who like surfing. If you’re an experienced surfer, visit the southern Bukit Peninsula for some thrilling action. Beginners can test their skills on the smaller waves by heading to the lagoons. They can also learn some skills in this activity and rent boards and other equipment from the local surf schools.
If you wish to explore the charming marine life underwater with the help of scuba diving expeditions, head to one of the popular dive sites, such as the waters surrounding Menjangan Island. The warm waters around the island of Bali have become a favourite of many divers over the years owing to the abundance of vast coral reefs and some wonderful varieties of aquatic beings. All the major resort areas have dive centres that provide Open Water Diving courses certified by PADI. The conditions for diving may not be favourable in most of the dive sites during the rainy season as storms often reduce visibility.
While holidaying on the island of Bali, you can also try one of the underwater scooter rides. Such rides allow you to go into the depths witness the marine wonders. The best aspect of this activity is that you don't need any prior scuba diving experience. This underwater activity offers loads of fun and excitement besides allowing you to watch some fantastic tropical fish in action. The scooters would be safe and easy to operate after a brief introduction to the equipment and the activity by an expert instructor before getting underwater.
