25 Incredible Photos Of Bali To Spark Your Wanderlust

 

Bali’s reputation as a tropical paradise precedes itself. So it’s no wonder that travellers from all around the globe are lured to the Indonesian island. The mere mention of Bali evokes images of days spent basking on sun-soaked shores, jagged palm fronds that wave at you from 30 feet above and sandy beaches seemingly untouched when glimpsed during morning golden hour. Stand on the edge of vertiginous cliffs that plunge into azure waters. Trek to cascading waterfalls deep into the jungle. Sip fresh coconut water from husks the size of your head and pay your respects at the weathered hillside temples that have withstood countless rainy seasons.

We travelled to Bali and Nusa Penida for seven days. Ubud was our base for three nights, from which we explored Tegalalang Rice Terraces, Sekumpul Waterfall, Ujung Water Palace and the Temple of Lempuyang Lehur. From Ubud, we caught a fast boat to Nusa Penida where a poor decision resulted in a hospital visit and a couple of bruised egos. If you’re thinking about renting a scooter in Nusa Penida, we urge you to reconsider. Make sure to read our personal experience of riding scooters before hopping into the driver’s seat. Our last night was spent in the seaside town of Canggu, where we eschewed the party town of Kuta. Here, designer boutiques are neighbours to organic food cafes, offering technicolour smoothie bowls which the Balinese have turned into an art form.

The Balinese are truly some of the most hospitable and generous people that we have encountered during our travels. We witnessed their kindness first hand. Regardless of your reasons for coming to visit the island – a yoga retreat, an all-inclusive luxury resort stay, a surfing holiday or a honeymoon – we have no doubt that you will leave this tropical paradise with a piece of the Bali spirit.
