Island of the gods

Visit Bali around

Bali is famous for its varied landscapes and its multitude of places to visit.

In Bonian, you are located in the middle of the length of the island, on the west coast. The famous Ubud or Tanah Lot and its temple are about an hour's drive away, for example. The mountain and the volcanoes are quickly reached by car and can be easily visited during the day.

The north of the island is wilder, with diving spots and very beautiful beaches.
