Bali

Undoubtedly beach-blessed, Bali’s circumference is splattered with a mixture of volcanic sand and picture-perfect golden crescents. The southern coast boasts the fashionable beaches of Seminyak, Jimbaran Bay and Sanur. Here we’re in 100% hip holiday mode with chic hotels, serious spas, beach restaurants serving melt-in-the-mouth seafood and bars mixing up far-too-quaffable cocktails. For the more solitary sand-seeker, eastern Bali is a great alternative. The beaches are volcanic and often deserted, the snorkelling and diving is top-notch and the local food is some of the best we have come across. While remote northern Bali is both a trekkers paradise and dolphin-lover’s hotspot, inland Ubud remains the focal point for arts, crafts, dance and music.
