Discover Bali

Bali is nicknamed the island of the gods and a trip here really is heavenly – visitors often talk of a vibe which makes Bali special.

You can expect great beaches, wonderful sights and a variety of activities but Bali also offers an unbelievably wide range of accommodation.

Everything from basic home-stays run by friendly Balinese families to some of the world’s best resorts and spas is available. A beachfront villa complete with private cook and driver, VIP pick up at the airport or even a shopping guide – anything is possible!

But aside from the resort centres, traditional religion is very much alive in Bali and you can experience unique, majestic architecture and regular rituals at one of 20,000 temples across the island. The temple of Tanah Lot is perched high on a rock in the ocean while the iconic Directional Temple is most beautiful at sunrise or sunset.

For something a little more active, Bali offers some stunning dive spots. There are many options depending on whether you’re searching for wrecks, sharks or just an easy dive.

Bali should also be on every surfer’s to-do list, whether an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro.

The biggest swells hit the west coast of the island and Bukit peninsula during the dry season but if you’re new to surfing, or short on time, a great option is to hire a surf guide.

If riding the waves doesn’t appeal there are plenty more activities to keep you entertained from zoos to sports and attractions.

Another must-do whilst in Bali is sample some of its famous Indonesian street food.

You’ll find simple, traditional dishes being served at warungs on the side walk or even from gas cookers on the back of motorcycles.

You can expect to pay between $1-$3 for a dish but be prepared for a bit of spice and for them to unexpectedly shut up shop if the food runs out! 

The best time to visit is May and June, so head to your nearest Lincolnshire Co-op Travel branch and find out more.
