Bali is health and wellness hotbed which attracts travellers from all over the globe. From yogi’s and gym-lovers to surfers, Bali is perfect for anyone who loves to take part in physical activity and spirituality.
Yoga: With the inherent spiritual culture that Bali is centred on due to its Hindu roots, the island attracts the some of the most renowned Yogi’s in the world. The unique energy the island provides combined with the beautiful scenery creates the perfect environment to connect with yourself and surroundings.
Ubud, Bali’s cultural hub, is arguably the best location in Bali for Yogi’s! It’s wide variety of ancient temples, rice paddy fields and rainforests create a beautiful Zen-like atmosphere. Everyone you’ll meet here is super friendly and relaxed! However, although Ubud may be the best spot for yoga I need to re-iterate that it’s also very popular in other locations such as Canggu or Seminyak. For serious practitioners, Northern Bali may be an even better environment for you as its largely untouched by tourists and gives you that truly authentic Balinese experience. With over 600 yoga retreats in Bali, you’ll be sure to find a retreat perfect for you.
Fitness: The fitness scene in Bali is another which has gained immense popularity over time. Whether you’re into Powerlifting, CrossFit, Functional Fitness or just traditional weightlifting there is a spot for everyone. With a wide range of top of the line gyms available you are sure to be well taken care of! In fact, one of Canggu’s most popular gyms Body Factory even has a Recovery Centre! Fitted with ice-baths, a sauna, swimming pool and even a jacuzzi it’s the perfect spot to rejuvenate after a hard workout or even a heavy night of partying! ;)
If you’re into other sports, with plenty of open parks and fields there is loads you can do! For example, one Bali’s most popular beach clubs, Finns hosts a weekly football tournament! While other venues organise weekly futsal or volleyball tournaments. If you’re into tennis that is available too – with specialist athletic centres such as Liga Tennis providing the perfect space to get your Rafa Nadal on! So basically what we’re trying to say is that no matter what sport you’re into – Bali has you covered!
Surfing: If you’re a seasoned surfer, or just want to try it out, Bali has waves catering for all abilities. Known as one of the best surf spots in the world, due to the incredible waves and breath-taking scenery that accompanies every surf break - Bali is a surfer’s paradise! It can be surfed all year round and has a thriving surf culture! Some of the favourite spots among surfers include stunning locations such as Padang Padang, Dreamland and Bingin in Uluwatu. However, you’re also blessed with amazing waves in Canggu and Seminyak, while Kuta offers the perfect spot to learn for beginners. If you’re the adventurous type then a trip down to Northern Bali, to places like Medewi will be right up your street – offering incredible waves and a nice isolated retreat!
Our favourite thing about Bali is the food. With an incredible mix of influences from Western to local, Bali has such a wide variety of flavours available we can guarantee that throughout your time here you’ll fall in love with a restaurant or cafe. If you’re looking for some of the best burgers, pizza or pasta you’ve ever had then you won’t be disappointed with places like Nude, Milk & Madu, Penny Lane and Luigi’s cooking up an absolute storm! While, if you are looking to expand your horizons and try out some of the more local food you can visit traditional Indonesian Warung’s which serve up some fantastic Indonesian dishes such as Nasi or Mie Goreng. A few of our favourite Indonesian restaurants are Merah Putih and Ulekan which both provide a 5* Fine Dining experience.
For those who don’t like to party with alcohol, conscious partying may be the go-to. Often labelled ecstatic dancing, these events do not encourage alcohol use. Instead, everyone drops their ego at the entrance and goes wild once the music begins.
