Bali is a beautiful and fascinating destination, and a perfect choice for your next sailing holiday. Between fabulous beaches, awe-inspiring temples, and a plethora of activities to take part in, it’s no wonder Bali is one of the world’s most popular islands.
Bali is one of 17,000 islands in the archipelago of Indonesia, situated between Java and Lombok. Overwhelmingly a Hindu island, the Hindu spirituality infuses all aspects of Balinese life and culture. Many visitors to Bali come to see the impressive, ornate temples dotting the island, decorated with statues and carvings of gods and goddesses. Hindu temples are an important element in Balinese life; in fact by law, each village must construct at least three. Bali holds many festivals throughout the year, and there is a great tradition of Balinese music and dancing. On your Balinese yachting holiday, you’ll want to make sure to see some of the mesmerizing dances performed.
Year-round pleasant temperatures add to the appeal of Bali, and the best time of year to visit may be from June to September, when the humidity is at its lowest. Very accessible, Bali is easy to get to, and only a plane ride from most Australian cities. Flights depart daily to and from Bali’s major airports.
Bali has a stunning landscape, with vibrant vegetation and volcanic, mountainous terrain. The mountains on Bali make for excellent hiking and climbing, and in the valleys you’ll observe rice paddies as far as the eye can see. As you explore the island, you’ll encounter beautiful, cascading waterfalls as well, perfect for a refreshing shower. On the coast, enjoy the primarily black sand beaches and comfortable waters. Bali is a great place for swimming, fishing, surfing, and other water activities. Offshore, you’ll want to spend some time away from your chartered yacht by exploring the undersea depths. Diving is excellent around Bali, with many wrecks and other notable dive sites of interest. If you’re new to the world of diving, Bali is one of the top places for diving instruction and certification.
After spending your days sailing your yacht through the blue seas or climbing volcanic peaks, enjoy some local cuisine in the evening and meet the friendly Balinese locals. At Dream Yacht Charter, we can’t wait to welcome you to Bali, where you’ll discover rich delights and a world of wonder.
