Bali, the island of gods with unique beauty

A destination with a thousand charms. Bali, which covers almost 6,000 km2, is the most visited island of the Indonesian archipelago, with its many landscapes of rice terraces, volcanoes and mountains, without oubiler beaches with white sand or volcanic or small coves lined with cliffs. Nicknamed “the island of the gods”, it is also popular for its superb walks or hiking or mountain biking, as well as visiting its many temples, such as that of Ulun Danu Bratan, on Lake Bratan surrounded by mountains , dedicated to the goddess Dewi Danu or the Temple Gunung Kawi, built in the XI, with its ten shrines.

Picturesque lakes and villages also give way to lush vegetation. As for the Agung, which rises to more than 3100 meters, it is a sacred mountain whose last eruption took place in 1964. Its ascent requires about half a day. If some opt for relaxation, others can indulge in many activities such as water sports (jet ski, catamaran, diving, surfing …), descents of rivers lined with tropical vegetation rafting or, in a other register, practice their swing on golf courses.
