Congratulations, if you have recently tied the knot or will be doing so soon! If you are dreaming of an ideal honeymoon amidst the lush beauty of nature in an exotic place with intriguing heritage, then look no further as Bali is the perfect honeymoon destination. This Indonesian island is famous for beautiful beaches and water, unparalleled sights of nature and the most interesting mix of cultures.

There are plenty of things to do in Bali for couples on honeymoon or just looking for a romantic getaway. Whether you prefer something romantic, adventurous, relaxing or exciting, your vacation in Bali is bound to be filled with laughter and good times! Here is an eclectic list of things to do in Bali for couples:

1. Sunset at Uluwatu Temple

The most romantic thing you can do with your partner is to witness the colourful wonders of nature together and reflect on how much you each mean to one another. Catch the most spectacular sunset at this ancient temple in Uluwatu and it’s sure to bring up feelings of passion and romance!

Uluwatu Temple is one of six important temples in Bali and sits on a cliff by the sea. Not only will you get to marvel at the architectural beauty of this 11th Century Balinese Hindu temple, you will also hear the soft lapping waves as they crash onto the cliff. Stay until the sky is painted red, orange, yellow and purple and you won’t regret the sight.

At night, there is an unforgettable performance of Balinese Kecak and Fire dance from 6-7pm here so that’s another good reason to stay for the sunset!

2. Jet Skiing at Nusa Dua

Thrills and adventures are a great way to bond with your significant other, especially when you get to hug one another tightly as you “fly” through the waves in the open sea. Head to Nusa Dua located south of Bali for some watersports adrenaline and fun! The beach at Nusa Dua is quieter than Kuta and is famous for its many watersports offerings like jet ski, parasailing, diving and more.

Here you can get trained by professionals on how to ride on a jetski with your partner and you will definitely enjoy the heart-pumping experience. Explore the beautiful area on your jetski to get a completely different view of Bali than on foot and feel the cold splashes of the Indian Ocean on your face.

3. Sunrise After A Hike at Mount Batur

Hiking in the dark may not seem like a stereotypically romantic activity, but the experience itself is guaranteed to bring couples closer together. Imagine linking hands while you trek along rocky paths up a mountain and witnessing the most beautiful sunrise at its peak. This active volcano is a popular hiking spot and is beginner-friendly as well, though be prepared to spend a good 4-5 hours here.

At the peak, not only will you be engulfed by early morning mist and the first rays of the sun, you will also catch a spectacular view of Lake Batur and Mount Agung. On your way down Mount Batur, you can also visit the hot springs and Ulun Danu Batur temple for more things to do. This hike up Mount Batur and watching the sunrise is definitely a must do for all visitors to Bali!

4. Romantic Dinner At the beach

Given the beautiful beaches in Bali, it will be remiss of you to not go for a romantic dinner at the beach. This is one of the most popular things to do in Bali, which is why there are many romantic dinner spots catered just for couples. The best place for a romantic seafood dinner is at Jimbaran Bay, where the whole stretch of the beach is filled with many restaurants, both local and international. Some of these restaurants also have a live seafood display so you can pick your food to be barbecued fresh.

Before or after dinner, walk hand in hand along the beach barefoot to feel the soft waves on the fine white sands. This is definitely a popular honeymoon spot for the romantic vibe it offers! Besides Jimbaran Beach, many hotels also offer romantic dinner at the beach which may be more private and secluded.
