Popular Offbeat attractions in Bali

Here's a list of Popular Offbeat attractions in Bali recommended by our experts:

The less explored places of Bali are just as fascinating as its most popular tourist attractions. Welcome to the ‘Island of the Gods’! Bali is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. One of the most beautiful places on earth, Bali is surrounded by turquoise seas and golden beaches and is a surfer’s paradise! Aside from being a favourite hangout for beach bums, Bali is known for its huge number of other attractions such as its temples, local flea markets, art and craft, parks, caves, waterfalls and museums. The art markets are a unique shopping experience and they give you a keen insight into the wonderful artistry and creativity of the island’s craftsmen. Culture vultures make their way over to Ubud, the cultural centre of Bali, to learn all about local legends and Balinese traditions. While backpackers and groups of friends often explore Kuta for its fun party culture, Ubud is where you need to be for a more local flavour. Some of the popular, more offbeat attractions in Bali include islands Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan - all three islands are surrounded by amazing sites for diving. The islands are also the home of the mantas and mola molas (ocean sunfish) that made diving in Bali famous. Dolphin spotting at Rovina Beach is another offbeat experience not to be missed!
