    I’m preparing a trip to Indonesia – hoping to go in a couple of months – so that’s awesome. We’ll definitely snorkel and dive! Thanks for the tips!

  2. Jolina S..... Reply

    Great suggestions! Bali is still in my bucket list but to be honest, I was more focused on visiting the temples. Glad that there are plenty of beach activities we could possibly to do in between all of the temple visits. Love the Bamboo Bar–definitely have to visit!

    The beach is my favorite place to be! I always enjoy reading on the beach and when I want to be a little more active, I enjoy snorkeling and seeing all the colorful fish. Wish I was on a tropical beach today!

    I can’t wait for summer. We get a beach pass every year, so we will be at the beach all summer long 🙂

  5. Chantell Collins Reply

    Wow so many beach activities that could keep you entertained for weeks! I haven’t tried the Rolling Donut or Banana but I would definitely be up for it. Kite Surfing looks awesome but I heard it can be tough to learn.

  6. candy Reply

    Never understood how some people just go to the beach and lay there. We love to get up and do different fun activities. All of these look awesome.

  7. Jeanette Reply

    This is most definitely a place I want to go to. Bali is very high on my list of international places to explore. I am such a beach person and they have beautiful beaches there. It looks like there’s a lot to do there also.

  8. Jenn @ EngineerMommy Reply

    I have never been surfing but it is one of the activities I would love to do in the near future. Visiting Bali would be a dream. I think the whole family would love the trip.

  9. Tomi C Reply

    I’m going to SNUBA for the first time on my upcoming vacation to Cozumel. I am so excited. I love parasailing, scuba diving and so many of the activities you mentioned but SNUBA is new to me.

  10. Candy Reply

    I used to be more adventurous in the waters, but the older I get the more terrified I become 🙁 Which really sucks cuz it looks so fun! I will have to stick to the fun bars like the Bamboo bar. It looks so airy and relaxing. Huge plus that it’s eco-friendly !

  11. Heather Reply

    Living in Northern Colorado, I really could use the sun and sand right now. This looks like an absolute blast. I can’t wait for summer!

  12. Sarah Bailey Reply

    What some absolutely fantastic ideas, I would have loved to have tried them all once upon a time, these days I’d probably stick to the beach and if I was feeling really good a little snorkling.

  13. Emily Reply

    All of it sounds amazing! I am sitting in Wisconsin in the middle of winter and this all seems magical! We love to be adventuress when going on vacation, so much of this sounds like a ton of fun.

  14. Roch Reply

    These are all awesome activities to try in Bali. I love the views of the beach but I’m not really a huge fan of the water. I tried parasailing once and thought it’s a great experience.

  15. Ilana Reply

    Bali always sounds for me as the definition of paradise! Hope to be able to try some of your recommended activities soon!

  16. JeffNourse Reply

    Looks like an amazing trip! Thank you for sharing this; you have given me the foundation for planing my trip.
    I Would love to hear more details about where you stayed and the tour guides you used.

  17. Our Family World Reply

    Bali is in our travel bucket list. We haven’t traveled to any Asian country yet, but if we would get the chance, I’d love to have Bali on the top of the list.

  18. Anosa Reply

    When I visited Bali last year we did some of these beach activities and it was truly fun, I am missing it already and can not wait to go back.

  19. Mel Reply

    The bamboo bar looks like the perfect place to relax after seeing all the pretty fishes and corals when snorkelling! The activities look like so much fun!

  20. Aimee Horgan Reply

    The donuts are so much fun, we loved them. One of our favourite things to do in Bali is relax on the beach and snorkel, the water us so clear and warm it’s a dream.

  21. Andra Reply

    I still regret skipping Bali during our last trip to Indobesia. And now you gave me even more reasons to want to get there. I would love to try some snorkeling and some kite surfing as well 🙂

  22. Laura Reply

    OMG surfing in Bali is so fun!!! I was only in Bali for five days not enough time :/ That bamboo bar looks so fun I will have to check it out next time I’m in Bali!

  23. Indrani Reply

    With so many islands Indonesia is an ideal beach destination. Indeed these beach activities make holidays more memorable. I am yet to try doing some these, just need some more courage to attempt them. 🙂

  24. Carol Colborn Reply

    I’ve been to Bali. I didn’t even hit the beach then, much less all the other activities. I was attending a conference. Besides, I can’t swim…deathly afraid. So I will just take the ambiance.

  25. Linda Reply

    This is a great list of beach activities for Bali. We loved the sunsets and long sand beach on Jimbaran Bay. Watching the surfers at Canggu was so much fun. I was sick when we visited Bali and was so disappointed we couldn’t scuba dive or snorkel. Means we need to go back!

  26. Michael Hodgson Reply

    Snorkeling would, without a doubt, top our list. Paddling and hiking are also adventures we seek to do anywhere we travel where there is beach and water … banana boat? NOT so much. 😉 Great post.

  27. Medha Verma Reply

    These are some really amazing beach activities that you’ve listed for Bali. However, there’s one more that I would like to suggest you add to this list – it is one which is not very popular but looks amazing and I really wanted to experience it while I was in Bali but never got the chance to. It is the Underwater Scooter. The tour to submerged Buddhist Temple in Bali with an underwater scooter looks like an amazing activity to try it. And you don’t even need to train for it!
