Bali is part of the Coral Triangle, the area with the highest biodiversity of marine species, especially fish and turtles. In this area alone, over 500 reef-building coral species can be found. For comparison, this is about seven times as many as in the entire Caribbean.

Located in the western part of Bali, you can enjoy the rare sight of deer swimming near the beach. Pemutaran is also famous for its diving activities and is renowned for reef conservation.

 

Mountain climbers may want to climb up Gunung Agung. Begin your ascend from behind the temple or through the village of Sebudi. However, make sure to ask permission first from the temple authorities, as the Balinese religion prescribes that no one may stand higher than the sacred temple especially when ceremonies are being held.

 

The Kecak dance is staged most dramatically in the open-air setting on a cliff, by the Uluwatu temple. Experience the unforgettable moments when the sun slowly lowers in the sea over the horizon beyond this beautiful temple serenade with Balinese's most iconic art performance.
