Temples are essential to Balinese history, culture, and religion, and some of those temples are just situated perfectly in the heart of nature that could result in amazing images. Be it in daylight, accompanied by the golden hours, and even just as is at any time of day.

The Beach and the Ocean

Bali is known worldwide for its beaches and marine biodiversity. Some choices are to stay in the main island and explore the many beaches Bali has to offer, or even hop on a boat to some small islands such as Menjangan island, Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Ceningan where the crowds still aren’t as stuffed as it is in the main island. Another alternative is also to dive or just simply snorkel in the waters of Bali, which would require you to prepare some additional equipment for the trip.
