“Bali’s best known underwater attraction” (Lonely Planet)
Your car will leave at 7.00 AM and will take you Northwest through Bali’s beautiful nature and through a part of the West Bali National Park. The drive takes around 4 hours, but all of our guests say that the beautiful snorkeling experience is worth the ride!
From the coast by Pulau Menjangan a boat picks you up and takes you to two different snorkeling spots, where you will experience beautiful reef, fish and ocean flora while snorkeling for about 2 hours depending on your wishes, the weather and the water. After the snorkeling you will have an already ordered and packed lunch on the boat before it is time to head back home. Our driver will have you back at Solid Surf & Yoga House around 6:00 PM.
Please bring your swimsuit and a towel/sarong, sun lotion and cash for lunch and shopping. And of course bring your camera to capture the wonderful views on this great day. Please be prepared for weather or water changes that may have an effect on your route or destination. Always trust your guide to know the waters and the local weather.
Price: 55 euro (we will only do the trip if a minimum of 3 people have signed up)
On this day you can help design parts of your tour! The trip will start around 7 or 8 AM and takes you down 503 steps to the beautiful waterfall, Air Terjun Nungnung. You can even go into the tranquil pool under the fall and attempt to stand right under the 40-meter drop and feel its power as it drops!
Then you go to Kintamani village on the ridge of Gunung Batur (Mount Batur), which is an active volcano with a 1717 meter peak that also holds the lake Danau Batur. As you get closer to the peak itself, you drive on the rim of the ancient crater. The view is amazing! On clear days you can even see the coast towards the South and Southwest. You will then arrive at a restaurant, where you will have lunch while enjoying the breathtaking view of Mount Batur and the lake.
On the way back from the volcano you can pass by the city of Ubud, Bali’s cultural capital. You have several options at this point.
You can visit the Monkey Forest (beware of the wild monkeys), take a short walk in the rice fields or shop in the center of Ubud.
Also, you can stop by an organic Luwak Coffee plantation, where your guide can tell you everything about coffee and tea and other aromatic natural products. There are many things to see in central Bali, so we advise you to talk to the driver about what you like, and he will help you plan your trip!

The car leaves at around 4 PM and takes you to the Tanah Lot area in about 30/40 minutes. After you enter you get to walk through small streets with lots of shops and restaurants before coming to the temple area itself. We suggest you walk uphill to the right to see amazing views of the ocean and cliffs and of Pura Tanah Lot (Tanah Lot Temple) itself, which is located on a rock in the ocean (1/3 of the rock is artificial).
You can only reach the temple during low tide and as a non-Hindu, you are not allowed to enter the temple, but you can walk through the water to the front of the temple to get a ‘darshan’ – a Hindu blessing with rice on your forehead.
You can spend hours walking around the area, but the best place to see the sunset is from one of the many restaurants on top of the cliff just by the temple.
Once you are done watching the sunset and having dinner (if you wish to do so), our driver will take you back to Solid Surf & Yoga House.
