A Bali Yacht Charter will take you across an exotic and ancient land with stunning scenery. Here’s what you can expect to see during your luxury vacation.
Famous for its awe-inspiring temples, magnificent wildlife, stunning coasts and splendid scenery, Bali is the perfect destination for your next luxury vacation. A Bali Yacht Charter will take you on a voyage of discovery across an exotic and ancient land, taking in sensational surroundings, local cuisine and the beauty of nature around you. Here we’ll provide just a small taste of what you might expect from your Indonesian expedition.
Breath-taking Rivers and Waterfalls
One of Bali’s most beautiful features is its abundance of natural waterfalls, many of which you can discover during your Bali yacht charter. There are too many wondrous Bali waterfalls to list each one in detail, however Sekumpul is one that we would definitely advise not to miss. The effort of making the trek to experience it close up is more than worthwhile.
Although not technically a part of Bali itself, Lombok Island, which can be found just to the west of the Indonesian island, is easy to visit during a Bali yacht charter and is host to some truly magnificent natural waterfalls. Mayang Putek, for instance, is an incredible 60 metres in height and contains sulphur which is believed locally to have healing and restorative properties.
There are a huge number of temples to visit in Bali, each one with its own unique history, character and spiritual significance. When it comes to visiting the temples from your Bali yacht charter, it makes sense to start on the coast. The Hindu Tanah Lot temple is one of Bali’s most well-known and for good reason – the dramatic coastal setting adds to the astonishing impact of this iconic site and its oceanic backdrop makes it one of the most beautiful temples in the region.
The Ultuwatu sea temple is also a must-visit on your Indonesian vacation. Its magnificent location nestled atop a Balinese clifftop makes it a truly spectacular sight even from afar, whilst up close it is even more magnificent to admire. Thought to protect Bali from malicious sea spirits, the Ultuwatu temple hosts a number of vibrant celebrations and festivals each year. Just be cautious of the wildlife – the site is home to hundreds of wild monkeys that are notorious pickpockets to unsuspecting tourists.
Snorkelling and Surfing
As keen boarders will know, Bali is a celebrated destination for surfing, snorkelling and other water sports. When it comes to snorkelling, Indonesia is part of the ‘coral triangle’, named by scientists because of its particularly abundant coral reefs and rich marine biodiversity. At some sites, you can be lucky enough to spot reef sharks, giant mantras, and countless stunning tropical fish shoals, with great visibility to impressive depths when the water is clear. Scheduling a guided snorkel or dive into your Bali yacht charter will take your vacation to the next level and create unforgettable memories of your ocean exploration.
