Family friendly travelling in Bali

With its magnificent beaches, multitude of coral reefs, and stunning forests, planning a family vacation in Bali is child’s play. The year-round balminess of its equatorial climate is matched by the warmth of the local people. You’ll find a dizzying array of fun outdoor activities in Bali for all the family, from adrenalin boosters such as quad buggy rides to more leisurely pursuits like kite surfing. The sheer quality of kid-friendly activities in Bali is outstanding, and parents and children alike are well-catered for at all times.

Things to see in Bali

Waterbom Park, one of the top attractions in Bali for kids, is jam-packed with all manner of aquatic thrills, from mini-slides to exhilarating rapids. When you’ve had enough of the water and want to put your feet up, enjoy a relaxing foot massage while the kids continue to splash about. Next, take off to the Ubud Monkey Forest where you can watch these adorable animals go about their daily business. They are very clever though—be careful not to let them run off with your camera! After all that monkey business, release your inner Jack Sparrow at Pirate’s Bay, where you can have lunch on a pirate ship, hang out in a tree house, and send the kids on an exciting treasure hunt. Feeling hungry after all that? Treat the whole family to dinner in the Jimbaran district, where you can savor superb local fish (and Mai Tais) on the beach, while the kids can play in the sand.

Family-friendly hotels in Bali

Bali has witnessed a building boom in the past few years as the influx of tourists continues to increase. As a result, you’ll find a great selection of modern, family-friendly hotels in Bali with an abundance of amenities offering great value for money. Family resorts in Bali specifically cater to the needs of all family members. Child-friendly pools with nearby sun loungers mean you’re close enough to keep an eye on the kids, but not so close to the action that you’re in the splash zone! Rock-climbing walls, waterslides, and private sandy beaches will keep the kids thoroughly entertained, giving you the opportunity for some much-deserved relaxation time.

Where to stay in Bali

Kuta is the most tourist-friendly area in Bali, and home to Waterbom Park. The local beach stretches almost to the airport, and restaurants along its length make it perfect for a relaxing stroll after exploring the area’s many shopping malls. Jimbaran offers a slightly more laidback option. Here is the ideal spot for some beach relaxation—kick back, switch off technology, and enjoy quality family time. To the north, Lovina is the perfect base from which to explore the ‘real Bali’, while its beach, protected by a reef, is a great swimming spot for your smaller ones.

How to get to Bali

The island is served by Denpasar International Airport, from which a range of companies provide minibus and coach transfers directly to the door of your family-friendly Bali hotel. While public transport is quite extensive, buses and bemos (chartered vehicles with driver) can sometimes be very busy, especially if you have the whole family in tow. Hiring a car with a private driver is cheaper than you might expect and a flexible way to dictate the family’s itinerary while soaking up some local culture. For exploring quieter backroads, renting bicycles is an ideal option for a day out with the kids!
