Bali is nicknamed the Island of Gods for a reason. Ridiculously beautiful with its volcanic mountains and lush rainforests, the Indonesian island is like a piece of untouched paradise. If work/school has been getting up your nerves recently, cut yourself some slack and head over to Bali for a quick getaway from the city! The island is teeming with some of the world’s most exciting travel activities and landmarks to spice up your typical dull weekends.

Here are a list of amazing things to do in Bali that we bet would have you packing at the end of this post.

1. Bali Underwater Scooter

Why swim when you can ride a scooter underwater? The Bali Underwater Scooter offers travellers a unique scuba-diving experience without the need for licenses or heavy gear equipment. Virtually anyone can hop onto the underwater scooter and dive up to 20 metres deep into Bali’s waters.

The underwater scooter works the same way as a motorcycle would — swerve the handlebars for direction and push the baton for speed. Is there a cooler way to admire Bali’s coral reefs and marine life?

2. Hidden Canyon of Beji Guwang

Here’s one to jazz up your Instagram feed — the Beji Guwang Hidden Canyon, a.k.a Bali’s best kept secret. A beautiful ravine eroded by river waters, the Beji Guwang Hidden Canyon was once a place only the locals knew; it only started receiving tourists recently for its picturesque landscape. Wade through the waters and strike a pose amongst the canyon’s abstract rocks for the perfect shot!

3. Ubud Monkey Forest

Officially named as the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, the Ubud Monkey Forest are home to three Hindu temples, and as its name suggests — monkeys. A popular tourist attraction in Bali, the Ubud Monkey Forest is a must-visit for nature and animal lovers alike.

Explore to your heart’s content but stay aware of your surroundings — the monkeys, albeit adorable, are notorious for their pickpocketing skills, whilst the braver ones snatch it outrightly. Empty your pockets and avoid bringing expensive items, unless you’d like to see them hanging from the treetops.

4. Bali Sea Turtle Release

If you’re an advocate for animal rights, how about releasing a baby turtle back into their ocean? The Bali Sea Turtle Society is a non-profit organization that aims to protect endangered sea turtles by scouting the beaches for eggs before the poachers can reach them. Even though most conservation centres charge a fee for participants to release the baby turtles, the Bali Sea Turtle Society does it absolutely for free. Have someone been cutting onions in here?

5. Angel’s Billabong at Nusa Penida Island 

Lying on Nusa Penida island sits Mother Nature’s best infinity pool — the Angel’s Billabong. Wedged between two cliffs, the Angel’s Billabong holds crystalline waters that are bewitchingly beautiful to swim in. Though irresistibly stunning, the pool is unwise to swim in during high tides. The waves are stronger towards the edge and are inadvisable to venture out to. Instead, stay close to the rocks and enjoy the million-dollar view exclusive only to the Nusa Penida island.

6. Natural Jacuzzi at Tegal Wangi Beach

Why pay a spa when you can have it free at Tegal Wangi beach? Lined with pristine white sand and azure waters, the gorgeous beach carries jacuzzi-shaped rocks where you can indulge in a rejuvenating soak against Bali’s horizon.  Now, that’s what we call an awesome weekend retreat.
