Things to do
Things to do in Bali
You can’t book cheap flights from the Gold Coast to Bali and not spend some time at the beach. The beaches of Bali are, after all, one of the main drawcards for visitors venturing to Indonesia. Kuta Beach is a frequent go-to, however with this popularity comes larger crowds, especially during peak season. Head a bit further up the coast to Seminyak where you can expect quieter beaches and swanky beach clubs. Balinese beach clubs are often located right next to the sand; serve food and drinks, and often have an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. For a quiet and authentic beach experience on your Bali holidays, visit Canggu where you’ll find a happy mix of beaches and rice fields.
Visit Local Temples
There are many stunning temples to visit around Bali. Tanah Lot is a temple located in the ocean, and Uluwatu Temple sits on top of a cliff and is a lovely spot to watch a Balinese sunset from. On the northern side of Bali, Pura Tirta Empul is a beautiful water temple where locals go to meditate and wash away bad thoughts and energy.
While the Balinese beaches are amazing, the hinterland of the island has just as much to offer. Ubud has a reputation as an artistic city and is loved for its calmer, more relaxed atmosphere. Ubud is well-known for its rice fields; the most popular being the Tegallalang Rice Terraces. There, you’ll get to experience stunning views and vivid shades of green. The Ubud Monkey Sanctuary is another must-visit. The sanctuary is home to hundreds of monkeys, many of which will eat fruit right from your hand.
Island Hop to the Gili Islands
When you book return flights from the Gold Coast to Bali, take some time to visit the nearby Gili Islands as well. You could visit the Gili Islands as a day trip, but if you have enough time, a few days is perfect. The Gilis are made up of three islands and each isle offers something unique. Gili Trawangan is full of exciting nightlife and activities, Gili Meno is quiet and secluded, and Gili Air is a hybrid of the other two.
