Famous places at Bali

Bali Barat National Park

Bali’s largest nature reserve encompasses 70,000 hectares of rainforest and 7,000 hectares of coral reefs and is home to many rare species of fauna.

Batur Caldera

The enormous crater basin of Batur is a spectacular sight. Dominating its centre is Mt. Batur, a brooding, blackened cone that erupted four times last century. Six small villages eke out an existence within the walls of the caldera, peopled by a simple mountain folk known as Bali Aga ("Original Balinese".)

Bedugul

The cool highland resort of Bedugul on the shores of Lake Bratan has become a popular retreat for tourists and residents alike.

Besakih

Bali's "Mother Temple" is a sprawling complex of shrines and pavilions set high on the slopes of sacred Mt. Agung.

Goa Gajah

The ancient hermitage of Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) near Bedulu is one of Bali's most intriguing archeological sites, comprising a man-made grotto, elaborate stone carving and Buddhist stupas.

Kerta Gosa

The Kerta Gosa Hall of Justice is a small pavilion adorned with fantastic ceiling murals. In the 18th century it was Bali's highest court of law.

Kuta

Kuta Bay, with its long stretch of white sand and brilliant sunset, has attracted swarms of visitors since its rediscovery by surfers and sun worshippers in the 1970s.

Lovina Beach

Lovina is an 8km strip of black sand on Bali's arid northern coast, renowned for its serenity and a local school of dolphins.

Nusa Dua

The beautifully landscaped beach resort of Nusa Dua is home to no less than 15 five-star resort hotels, the 18-hole Bali Golf & Country Club and excellent shopping facilities.

Nusa Lembongan

A small island off Bali's southeast coast, Nusa Lembongan is popular for its white sand beaches and quiet pace of life. Several cruise operators offer day-trips from Benoa Harbour.

Sangeh Monkey Forest

Populated by a large troupe of monkeys, this thick stand of nutmeg trees is believed by legend to have fallen out of the sky during a mythic battle between the gods, carrying with it a battalion of Wisnu's monkey army.

Sanur

The resort area of Sanur has grown up around Bali's largest traditional village and today boasts excellent facilities for the international visitor.

Tanah Lot

Tanah Lot (Earth from the Sea) is a stunning 15th century sanctuary located on Bali's south coast, built atop a rocky mound that at high tide is completely surrounded by water.

Tulamben

Some of Bali's most interesting diving is found at Tulamben, where the shallow wreck of a WWII US cargo ship is now festooned with colourful corals and schools of tropical fish.

Uluwatu

Perched on a limestone cliff 70 metres above the Indian Ocean, this 11th century temple is one of Bali's holiest sites.
