Canoe in a volcanic crater lake, escape to a hidden beach, make your own silver rings, get butterfly kisses and even learn to cook Bali style. What about bathing with an elephant or in a mineral rich natural hot spring? Or go chase waterfalls. There are so many things to do on your Bali holiday. Here are 10 of our favourite Bali holiday activities
1. Learn To Cook Bali Style
Cook Like a balinese chef. Whip up Nasi goreng, fried rice with vegetables, shallots, egg and chicken. Or, try your hand at Pepes Ikan – grilled fish in banana leaf with rice and sambals. Or, there’s Sate Ayam – grilled chicken with a peanut sate. You’ll learn from one of Bali’s finest, the chef at Bali Palms. Expect to use local ingredients you can mostly forage yourself from the property. Their hens lay fresh eggs daily and you can catch your own freshwater tilapia or gurame too. Oh, and pick your own fresh, tropical fruit – they grow bananas, mango, papaya, oranges, coconuts, mangosteen and others right there at Bali Palms. The best way to truly take your Bali holiday experiences home with you.
2. Have A Bali Beach All To Yourself
Shhh, we found a secret hidden beach – unspoilt Antap, with its black volcanic sand and spectacular rock formations. And, tourists hardly ever go there! Best of all, it’s only 25 minutes by car or bike when you stay at Bali Palms . Go mid or late afternoon when the tide is out and stay for a spectacular sunset.
3. Bali Culture Fest & Nature Spree In One Glorious Day
Lunch at the table of a village farmer, discover the secrets of traditional herbal medicine. This is the hidden paradise of Bali’s unspoilt villages.Then take a walk under towering ancient trees in the protected Tamblingan forest with macaques, squirrels and countless exotic birds. Stumble upon a hidden treasure – a beautiful old temple, right in the heart of the forest. That’s not all, climb Mt. Abang, the highest jungle mountain in Bali and swoon at the views – you’ll be there in the glow of sunrise. PLUS, go canoeing in the Tamblingan Lake, it’s in the caldera of an extinct volcano. And, do all of this in one amazing day! By far this is a collection of the best things to do on your Bali holiday.

5. Take A Bath With An Elephant
Hose, and scrub them, swim with them, ride bareback and fall in love with the gentle giants at Bali’s only dedicated elephant rescue facility. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Possibly, the best thing to do on your Bali holiday. Oh, and the breakfast and lunch buffets are not too shabby either. The 4-hectare Mason Elephant Park was created in response to the devastating situation in Sumatra where rampant deforestation and poaching has dwindled the native elephant population.

6. Shop & Shop & Shop At Bali’s Incredible Craft Markets
Get traditional woven and printed fabric so gorgeous, Christian Dior designed an entire range with it. What about those famous round Balinese rattan eco bags? Maybe gold and silver jewelry, ceramics and handcrafted art. Beautiful dresses, shirts, shorts and sarongs. The list is endless, Bali is shopper’s paradise. Oh and the best part – you can haggle for lower prices – in fact it’s expected. Now that’s a Bali holiday experience not to be missed.
7. Soak In A Natural Hot Spring
Soothe aching muscles, soften your skin, even relieve eczema and psoriasis when you immerse in a natural hot spring. These waters are so therapeutic, because they’re super rich in minerals. And that heat? Well, Bali is a volcanic island after all.
We love Angseri Hot springs – it’s surrounded by lush vegetation and those beautiful achingly green rice paddies. Oh and if you stay at Bali Palms you’re only a short drive away.
What you need to know: Showers are available, but take your own soap and towel. Leave your valuables at the hotel though, since there are no lockers. Take your own food and drink.
8. Do Go Chasing Waterfalls
Magical, sheltered in a shady enclave in the middle of a forest, and off the beaten track. You may even get there to find you have Sing Sing Waterfall blissfully all to yourself! Bali is famous for its waterfalls and while Sing Sing isn’t the highest, it’s notable because it’s a twin waterfall. Set yourself up in one of the cute little huts which provide shade or shelter from rain. Bring a picnic! And, it’s only ten minutes from Bali Palms the “real” Bali Jungle resort.
Opening times: 8am to 5pm. The address is Air Terjun Sing Sing Angin, Manikyang, Selemadeg, Kabupaten Tabanan, Bali 82162.
9. Eat Amazing Food At Bali’s Night Markets
Roasted pig is succulent, juicy and crunchy crispy, that’s Babi guling. And try Betutu chicken or duck stuffed shallots, garlic, ginger, chilli, peanuts, and more. Or mouth watering sate plus the famous nasi goreng. Bali’s night markets are legendary, lavish and unforgettable experiences. This has to be on your list of things to do on your Bali holiday. Yes, please sir, we definitely want some more! Try Senggol Market Bajera, Selemadeg, Tabanan. Open from 4.00 pm until midnight. Only 16 minutes drive from your Bali Palms accommodation.
