Honeymoon Is Divine In Bali

Size matters but not in the case of Bali, the tiny island in the Southeast country of Indonesia. Famed as the 'island of gods', Bali with its varied landscape of hills, rugged sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides along with its highly spiritual and unique culture is nothing short of paradise on earth. You may be able to drive around the entire coastline in barely 24 hours but the innumerably wonderful experiences that Bali has will fill up an entire lifetime. Spark up your honeymoon surrounded by the divinity of ethereal Bali.

Bali is one of the 17000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago and is located just over 2 kilometers from the eastern tip of the island of Java and west of the island of Lombok. Bali is approximately 144 kilometers from east to west and about 80 kilometers north to south.

Bali is a nature lover's paradise with lush greenery, exquisite beaches and exotic wild animals. Given the volcanic nature of the island, most of the beaches are strewn with black sand with only a handful of beaches with powdery white sand. Away from the coasts, the island is laden with acres of rice and paddy fields, just like out of a painting. Almost all of Bali's mountains are volcanoes, some long dormant while some still active. Do visit Mount Batur, one of the most accessible active volcanoes in the whole of Indonesia, which is only a two-hour climb. The monkey forest of Ubud, the reptile park of Rimba, the Bali bird park, the reptile park and the Bali zoo are worth visiting if you are an avid animal lover.

Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport is best suited for all international travelers with its modern amenities and facilities. There are ferries available to move around from the nearby islands (like Java and Sumbawa) to the island. Similarly, traveling by road is also possible via connecting roadways from other islands.
