Where Is Bali, Indonesia?

A province of Indonesia, the paradisal island of Bali is the westernmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Situated approximately three kilometers east from Java, the main island of Bali forms the eponymous province along with three small islands that lie to the immediate south east: Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. The islands are separated from Bali by the Badung Strait.

What Is Bali Known For?

When one mentions Bali, one thinks of a celestial paradise on earth. However, Bali is a lot more than just a heavenly island. It is a feeling, an aspiration, and a paradoxical call to experience something beyond the earthly pleasures, right here on Earth. Famous for its lush jungles, volcanic mountains, peaceful yoga retreats, and paradisal beaches, Bali is rich, varied, and sensually spirited.

Attractions to Visit in Bali

  • Uluwatu Temple: One of the six major temples believed to be the pillars of Bali, the Uluwatu Temple shares beautiful sunset views of the Thana Lot temple, another major sea temple on the island's west coast. For any enthusiasts of Hindu mythology and appreciators of dance, you will love spectating at the stunning Kecak dance program, based on the Ramayana. Taking place every evening, spectators can marvel at the beautiful sunsets that set behind the sublime presentation.
  • Ubud Monkey Forest: The sanctuary and natural habitat of the Balinese long-tailed monkey, the Ubud Monkey Forest is home to over 1,049 monkeys, 115 species of trees, and 27 acres of lush green land. Be careful of these cheeky primates though — these little monkeys are both light-fingered and short-tempered, so if you want to keep your skin intact and bite-free, we suggest that you keep any snacks for your day trip at home!
  • Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park: Devoted to the Hindu god Vishnu as well as his companion mythical bird, Garuda, the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park is steeped in religious and spiritual beauty. Spanning for over 60 hectares and rising 263 meters above sea level, the Garuda Wisnu Kencana is Indonesia’s tallest statue, inspired by a Hindu mythological tale revolving around the much explored Amerta, also known as the “elixir of life.” Despite its controversial origins when religious authorities primarily objected to the statue due to their belief that its stupendous size might disrupt the spiritual balance of the island, it is now evident that the sheer influx of visitors who come to the park to pay their respects only increases the spiritual importance and doesn’t deplete it.

Popular Destinations Near Bali

  • Nusa Penida: This earth-bound Elysian paradise that floats on the Indian Ocean near Bali holds darker secrets than one can imagine. Once a dungeon in the middle of the ocean, Nusa Penida has wiped its dark history and developed into a tropical paradise. Various bird species now inhabit the island; some are in danger and all are beautiful. Unique rock formations bless the visitors with spectacular views and the surrounding crystal aquamarine waters creates beaches too beautiful to be real.
  • Lombok: Lombok, just east of Bali, is like its more relaxed sister, with its idyllic beaches and scenic highlands. However, Lombok is much less crowded than Bali, thus creating a recognizable, but comparatively different day trip away from the hustle and bustle of Bali. Boasting several attractions to explore, from picturesque beaches, peaceful temples, to awe-inspiring mountains, visitors can explore the best of Lombok in just one day.

Best Neighborhoods in Bali

  • Kuta: A bustling tourism scene, Kuta is the place to go regardless of if you are a local, a passing visitor, or permanent expat. The eponymous Kuta Beach stands proud as the glittering gem of the neighborhood, with its fine sandy stretches, beachfront bars, and surf schools. With everything you need all in one place, from humble family-run eateries to high-end restaurants, or traditional markets to commercial shopping malls, why would you need to go anywhere else?
  • Seminyak: Often deemed as Kuta’s more high-end sister, Seminyak boasts lavish hotels and resorts that present the perfect accommodations. Fine dining restaurants and designer boutiques wave their Seminyak location like a golden ticket. Stunning coastline views are available to marvel at from the cozy and hip bars that decorate the beachfront and tourists can find a shopping mecca in Seminyak, where handmade products are available to purchase in the quaint shops alongside international designer boutiques.
