For a wonderful holiday with just the right mix of activity and tranquility, Bali is a great option for individuals, couples, families and groups. You can rent Bali villa accommodation for a very reasonable price and spend your days exploring this amazing Indonesian island.
One of the favourite activities for visitors to Bali is spending time at the gorgeous beaches. You can swim, surf, walk, go horse riding or just and watch the glorious sunsets. You’ll find great surfing beaches at Canggu, Brawa and Pererenan. Horse riding excursions along the Legian beach or through rice paddy fields can be booked through Umalas Stables.
When you wake up in your Bali villa accommodation you can start the day with an early morning walk along the beach. This will open your eyes to the fishing culture of the Bali people and you might even be able to snap up a bargain for breakfast at one of the fishing village markets. If you’re up to a bit of fishing yourself, you might be lucky enough to catch Spanish mackerel, wahoo, tuna, king fish, sail fish and barracuda.
For those who would like to get a taste of Bali’s flora and fauna, there are several choices. The Bali Bird Parkin Gianyar is highly recommended and is definitely worth a visit.

Visitors who love water sports are well catered for in Bali. Pack your swimming gear before you leave your Bali villa accommodation and head for the Water born Parkin Tuban.

You can also go on a sea cruise to Nusa Penida or Nusa Lembongan where you can enjoy scuba diving or snorkelling in the shallow waters of the offshore reefs with their colourful fish of every size and shape.
If you want a bit more water adventure, you can always take part in a white water rafting excursion down the rapids of the Ayung River. You’ll pass rural villages, tropical jungles and waterfalls along the way and gain a completely different view of Balil ife. Visitors who love a round of golf will enjoy a day at the Nirwana Bali Golf Course which is one of Asia’s best.

Before you check out of your Bali villa accommodation at the end of your holiday, make sure you’ve take advantage of some of the excellent shopping available in trendy Seminyak.
