Bali nestles between Java to the west and Lombok to the east in the Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia.
A small island with an estimated 10,000 temples and a vibrant arts culture, Bali has much more to offer than just picturesque beaches and excellent surf. Aside from its natural beauty, the happy-go-lucky Balinese way of life makes it hard to leave, too.
Kuta in the south boasts a superb nightlife, Ubud is characterised by stunning rice fields, while the heart of the island is dominated by dramatic volcanoes and hillside temples and shrines, so there’s plenty to see on this incredible island.
Travelling by ferry is a convenient way to explore Indonesia’s beautiful islands and Bali is a great departure point for doing so, with a few ports on along the east coast offering frequent routes to the nearby island of Lombok and to the Gili Islands.
