A Bali honeymoon guarantees that you can live in your beach clothes the entire duration of your stay. Unless you plan on venturing further inland or for the occasional romantic dinners and club jaunts, your beach gear is all you need. You have endless beaches and sun all day.
However, you want to leave the island with a little more experience than just sand and sea. Bali has a lot more to offer newlyweds. You can begin creating lasting memories with experiences that will last a lifetime.
Leaving your hotel honeymoon Bali suite may lead you further than the beach and the warm sand. It may lead you to the mountains, corals and hidden beaches.
Planning Your Bali Honeymoon
Here are a few helpful tips to aid in the planning of your dream Bali honeymoon.
Decide What You Want to Do
It is imperative that you and your spouse are in agreement on what you want to experience in Bali. You cannot spend the entire honeymoon holding hands on the beach and eating sumptuous dinners. Bali is to be experienced.
Also, agree on the kind of accommodation you will need. Options include:
- All-inclusive hotels
- Self-catering apartments
Next, you want to choose the best destination that you will both like. To make the best choice, you will need to agree on what you are interested in seeing. Some of the most popular destinations include:
- Ubud: you will not find any beaches here but there are rice paddies to visit and a jungle to explore if you are so inclined. There is the Ayung River on which you can go rafting.
- Kuta: this destination is famed for awesome surfing, parties and backpacking.
- Nusa Dua: you will enjoy water sports here as we as some peace and quiet away from the party spots.
- Seminyak: if you are looking to enjoy some luxury, this is the place for you. There are many luxurious hotels and a glorious beach awaits you as well.
If you plan on moving around the island, you will need to factor in transportation. The best option is to hire a car. Motorbikes are popular too but the roads will give you and your loved one a bit of a rough ride. You can also opt for coach tours but these may limit your enjoyment of the island.
Taxis are quite pricey. Having a car at your disposal may be the best option as you have the freedom to come and go as you like.
Give the Temples a Thought
The Balinese are spiritual people and their beliefs and religious practices are very important to them. There are myriads of temples that you can visit for the experience or even to watch the locals at worship.
The sea temples are quite interesting. They are located along the coastal line. Then there are the shrines in the towns and villages. You may find the Holy Spring Water Temple quite exciting. It dates back to 962 AD. It would be quite a thrill a visit a site that old.
Take in an Active Volcano
Mount Batur which is located in Kintamani is an active volcano. The last eruption was in 2000 and it was a spectacular one. A trip to the crater would be memorable. Alternatively, you could visit Lake Batur.
The rice paddies are also worth a look. They are excellent sites for amazing photos as well as simply sightseeing. You will find plenty of them as you drive north from Ubud and you can make some stops and practice your photography skills.
Online booking is available once you have decided where you want to go. In addition, you can choose a honeymoon package among the many you will find on offer. Plan to give the Komodo dragons a visit while you are there and swim with the sea turtles. Also, a visit to Bali would be incomplete without experiencing a few of the pink beaches on Komodo Island.
