Between its beautiful fine sandy beaches, its turquoise waters, its spectacular seabeds adapted to scuba diving, its renowned surf spots such as Kuta Beach or Padang Padang, its festive evenings such as Seminyak or the Gili Islands, its preserved nature, its rice fields and its volcano, whose ascent you can try to observe the sunrise, its charming hotels with all the comforts and low prices, Bali, this paradise island of the Indian Ocean and Indonesia, has something to please travellers from all over the world who want to get off the beaten track.

It is therefore difficult not to find what you are looking for by discovering this Indonesian island on a trek, by renting a scooter or with a driver, whatever your travel desires, and by being equipped with the Bali tourist guide to find your itinerary, Balinese magic is almost guaranteed!
