Sitting at the base of Mount Batur, Kintamani is the highest point reaching up to 5,633 ft/1716 m where travellers can’t seem to quit climbing.

At the hot springs you can soak your sore muscles and feel relaxed. Also, you can even make your dream of a helicopter flight come true that will give you a breathtaking view of the iconic Tanah Lot Temple and the rugged terrain of Kintamani area.

2. Surfing at Kuta Beach

Surfing is the sport that led to the rise of Kuta as Bali’s most famous beach. Vagabond wave riders from around the globe continue to search for the perfect waves all over Bali’s coastline, from the challenging barrels around the Bukit Peninsula to the black-sand beach breaks of the island’s western and eastern shores.

Surfing in Bali comes in many forms beyond the normal short and longboards. Bodyboarding or ‘boogie boarding’ is another way to ride the waves, while challenging forms include windsurfing, kitesurfing and wakeboarding. Beginner’s courses, rentals and tours are available from various operators in Kuta, Sanur and the Tanjung Benoa peninsula.
