When it comes to things to do in Bali, there’s no one better to ask than the curators at Kimpton Naranta Bali, who know the island like the backs of their hands. Uncover a treasure trove of experiences in Bukit and beyond. To get you started, here are some insider recommendations on what to explore:
Paragliding Melasti Cliffs: Explore Bali’s breathtaking coastline from above as you paraglide over paradise. Melasti Cliff Paragliding offers an experience to see Melasti Beach, South Kuta – famous for its spectacular rock formations, white sandy beaches and crystal waters – from a whole new height. You’ll be paragliding in a tandem flight with a certified, trained pilot. A truly memorable way to take in the vistas of South Kuta.
Pura Uluwatu Temple: A must-see while you’re in Bali, Uluwatu Temple sits on the edge of a 70-meter-high cliff jutting out over the azure Indian Ocean. Spectacular in every right, it’s also revered as one of the six Balinese spiritual pillars. Here you can also enjoy daily Kecak dance performances staged against a gorgeous sunset backdrop.
Padang Padang Beach: Bali is known for its beautiful coasts and Padang Padang Beach is no exception. A true slice of island life, it boasts more than crystal waters and soft white sand. Padang Padang is tucked into a semi-circular cove, surrounded by verdant cliffs. Walk down a flight of stairs to the beach and you’ll discover incredible limestone rock formations that reveal themselves during low tide. And it is a true surfer’s paradise; you can take lessons yourself or simply enjoy surfer-watching.
Nusa Penida: With its clear aquamarine waters, dramatic cliff-drop views and soft white sand, Nusa Penida is the living picture of a tropical paradise. Just 45 minutes from Bali by boat, the must-visit island draws you in with its beauty and array of activities: snorkel or dive and marvel at the underwater kaleidoscope of colors and abundant marine life, take in the stunning cliff views over Kelingking beach or soak up some rays on the powder-sand beach.
Kintamani: The Kintamani district offers some of the island’s most dramatic views, including jaw-dropping vistas from atop the famous Mount Batur. Embark on a trek up the active volcano and catch the sunrise over the clouds, followed by stunning panoramas of Lake Batur. If you love your coffee, Kintamani boasts some of Bali’s best coffee plantations. It’s a true feast for the senses.
