What are Bali’s top destinations?

When booking a hotel, it’s best to research where you’ll be staying so you can go on the Bali trip that you’ve always dreamed of. Whether you’re looking for a quiet coastal town, lush rainforests or vibrant nightlife — Bali has it. The island is culturally rich and you’ll likely get a different experience depending on your destination. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Kuta

Kuta is one of that main tourist destinations and it features stunning beaches with great surf. It is also located right next to the airport so once you arrive to Bali, you won’t have to do much more traveling.

Kuta can accommodate many different budgets, as there are a variety of hotels, restaurants and entertainment options. When the sun goes down, Kuta comes alive with stimulating nightlife — some bars stay open as late as 4 a.m.

  • Legian

The scene in Legian is very similar to southern neighbor Kuta, but without the large crowds. You’ll find accommodations for travelers on budget, as well as jetsetters looking for a high-end trip. Legian has beautiful beaches surrounded by eclectic dining, shopping and recreation that can be enjoyed at a much more relaxed pace.

  • Seminyak

Seminyak is for the luxury traveler looking to kick back and relax in style. The upscale beach area is home to many five-star resorts where you’ll find accommodations that are secluded from other guests. If you want spa treatment, high-end shopping and world-class cuisine, Seminyak is the spot.

  • Sanur

Sanur is a classic Bali destination perfect for newlyweds and retirees who want to vacation at a slow pace. While you might not find wild nightlife, you will find a number of restaurants and places to shop right off the beach. Sanur is especially rich in history as it is home to the Blanjong Temple and Le Mayeur Museum.

  • Nusa Lembongan

This smaller, less traveled destination is beginning to see more tourists, but is still relatively quiet. Located off the southeastern coast of Bali, Nusa Lembongan boasts stunning beaches, no traffic and good surf. The crystal clear water is a huge draw for travelers looking to snorkel or dive. As the island is small, you’ll probably not want to stay for more than a day or two.

  • Ubud

Ubud is a destination that you’ll want to spend more than week at as there is so much to see and do. From the breathtaking scenery to the dining and arts, traveling to Ubud is a terrific way to submerge yourself in true Balinese culture. You’ll find historic architecture, traditional cafes and five-star accommodations to make your Bali trip one to remember.

  • Canggu

A quaint coastal village located north of Seminyak where you’ll find great surf. As far as accommodations go, you can find beautiful resorts or stay at a private villa. It’s a less touristy destination with a number of expats who have relocated for the relaxing lifestyle offered in Canggu.

  • Denpasar

Denpasar is the capital city of Bali and can offer the perspective of a Bali local. Located by the southern tip of the island, you’ll find there are budget friendly accommodations for backpackers and middle of the road travelers alike. It’s central location also lends travelers the convenience of easily reaching other destinations on the island. You’ll have no problem finding food, drinks or a store to bring back some souvenirs.

  • Jimbaran Bay

With a name like the “Beverly Hills of Bali”, it’s no surprise that this is a top-tier destination on the island. Jimbaran is home to some of the most luxurious resorts and finest restaurants — think fresh seafood with a panoramic beach view. If you’re looking to be pampered while taking in some of the best sunsets on the island, you’ve found the place.

  • Nusa Dua

Downtown nightlife not for you? In Nusa Dua you’ll find white sand, turquoise water and number of choice resorts. You won’t find much outside of the resort where you stay, but being plopped beachside with handful of amenities doesn’t sound so bad. There’s also the Bali Collection close by where you can find entertainment or shop and dine.
