A holiday in Bali is all about the vibrant vibes of good life – gorgeous beaches, adventure sports, art marts, local grandeur, complete with lip-smacking good food. Flying Squirrel Holidays recommends a week holiday in Bali, centred around Ubud, Kuta and Seminyak.
Bali’s dream locations are no big secret, but you’ll see how delightfully different it is from the run-of-the-mill favourites. May, June and July are generally considered to be the best time to travel to Bali in terms of the weather. Our trip begins at Ubud where you can hire a bike and explore its beautiful villages or a car to visit the sacred Monkey Forest, a world famous Balinese Hindu site. We will take you next to the spectacular beaches of Seminyak and Kuta where you can enjoy diving trips and snorkelling. The shallow reefs of Blue Lagoon, near Padang Bai are a good place for introductory dives, night dives and long day excursions. And of course, what’s a beach holiday without some leisurely walks, romantic evenings spent enjoying a spectacular sunset, a beach massage or some precious moments with a therapist at a luxury spa?
On a holiday like this we have also packed in a visit to the Elephant Safari Park where you can feed and ride an elephant through Bali’s tropical jungle, visit the Uluwatu temple near Kuta and the Tanah Lot Temple at Seminyak and enjoy some wonderful pit stops where you can try the local cuisine. Our favourite is, of course, the divine seafood spread that awaits you on the beach at the Jimbaran Bay
