Bali

Bali, the ‘Island of the Gods’, is one of those rare, perfect, sun-kissed, tropical holiday destinations swathed in coconut palms and beaches that offers something for everyone. It’s also the home base of SeaTrek Sailing Adventures, and the perfect spot to spend a few days at the beginning and end of a cruise through eastern Indonesia. A blissful paradise of sandy beaches, terraced rice fields, river gorges, mountains, volcanoes and ancient rainforests, Bali blends its beautiful nature with an exotic history, palaces, temples, traditional dance performances, gorgeous arts and Hindu festivals. The tourist areas offer a vibrant nightlife, internationally-acclaimed restaurants, art galleries, spas, massage centres, and exciting shopping possibilities ranging from handicraft markets to bohemian boutiques and glamorous homeware stores. Activities and day tours include surfing, golfing, snorkelling and diving, adventure tours, animal parks and theme parks. Accommodation runs the full range from budget homestays to midrange family hotels, private luxury villas, five-star resorts, or chic boutique hotels.
