    3.5 stars

  • Sanur Beach
    3.5 stars

    Many first-time visitors to Bali find themselves a little underwhelmed by the beaches. It’s a response easy to imagine considering all the beautiful beaches featured on Bali brochures and the reality of crowded Kuta ... read more

  • Peekaboo
    3.5 stars

    Call me mother of the year but when I go to an indoor play area in Bali, I’m hoping for three things: good coffee, decent air-con, and five minutes’ peace. ... read more

  • Bali Zoo
    3.5 stars

    As someone who usually avoids zoos in Southeast Asia, my expectations of Bali Zoo were not high ... read more

  • Museum Le Mayeur
    4 stars

    Belgian artist Adrien Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres served as an army painter through World War I before embarking on a series of international journeys that saw him finally arrive at Singaraja in north Bali in 1932.

  • Jukung cruise
    4.5 stars

    A jukung is the small wooden double outrigger boat (well really a canoe) that you'll see pulled up on just about every beach in Indonesia.

    4 stars

  • Bali Safari and Marine Park
    4 stars

    This is an excellent day out in Bali for families — though as with all sites of this kind in Bali, get in as early as possible before the crowds thicken. The park is efficiently organised and run, with plenty of animals — elephants, tigers, Komodo dragons, orangutans — and opportunities to ... read more

  • Turtle Conservation and Education Centre
    4 stars

    What to do on a sunny Bali Sunday with kids? Visit the turtle centre on Serangan Island of course! This under-visited attraction makes for a perfect half-day outing from anywhere in south Bali — especially if combined with a meal out on the nearby beaches As tourism and development has spread in ... read more
