Paradise does Exist: Just head over to the Island of the Gods here on Earth – Bali

Article by Exotissimo Traveler

What can be said about Bali? Let us rephrase, what cannot be said about Bali? Staking a claim as one of the if not thee world’s most desirable paradise location, the Indonesian island has earned every right to be labeled as the Island of the Gods. Everything you ever wanted on a beach island is here ranging from culture, heritage, friendly folks and of course that beautiful land and seascape that truly captures the imagination. If you’re looking for that unforgettable vacation in the tropics, Bali should be at the top of your list.

Beaches galore! You’ve come to the right place for it. There are all kinds here, big, loud party types at Kuta in Southern Bali, the quieter northern beaches of Lovina, the black sands (a byproduct of volcanic ash) of Candidasa in the east and the island getaway of Nusa Lembongan (if Bali isn’t enough of an island getaway for you). Plus there’s a whole bunch of other beaches around. You just have to be here! Any beach activity you can think of, whether it is swimming, diving, snorkeling, sailing, surfing can be enjoyed in full here.

Need to step away from the beaches? No problem. Just head inland. There you’ll find some of the island’s renowned green rice fields. If you are into the arts, then this is the direction you need to go as well, because this is where Ubud is. Being 600 meters above sea level, Ubud also enjoys cooler temperatures than the coast.

Speaking of elevation, Bali is a haven for mountains and volcanoes. Mount Agung is certainly one of the most striking, towering 3140 meters above the surrounding land. And that’s not all. On its slope is Besakih Temple, one of the most revered in the island. It came very close to being a victim of the 1963 eruption. The temple was just mere meters away from the lava flow! Mount Batur although shorter at over 1700 meters, features Lake Batur, a spectacular crater lake.

Looking for culture and heritage? Bali’s got a’plenty! We’re already mentioned Besakih Temple. How about wowing yourself at the temple made for sunset at Tanah Lot? And the Tirta Gangga water palace? Just beautiful. And while you’re at it, observe the locals and see an exotic culture and way of life that adds up to the colorful and distinctive aura of the island.

Comprising of aqua blue ocean waters, world-class beaches and diving spots as well as a large number of cultural, historical and archaeological attractions, Bali makes for an excellent holiday destination. Just soak it all in as you explore and experience Bali in Depth.
