Canggu Beach is located on the northern part of the island. Here tourists can enjoy the beauty of the white sandy beaches while basking under the sun.

A walk over this village brings one closer to the remarkable Balinese Fisherman.
Kuta Beach features a sea wall that was built to protect the southern portion of the city from possible shelling attacks by the Japanese. The Temples of Suara and Sangri are located at the southern tip of the island where tourists can take a picturesque boat ride across to the other beaches. You can also visit the temple dedicated to the Goddess “Kua Tuteng” who is believed to have become a goddess because of her ability to draw water from the sea.
Sanur Beach is also popular for its beautiful views of the sea and surrounding mountain peaks. This beach is also home to the Taman Negara temple complex. Some tourists find this temple complex and the nearby Sanur Waterfall an interesting way of learning about Balinese history. There are a lot of activities planned here during the months of November to March. Here, you will be able to enjoy water sports like rafting and kayaking.
This is another well-known temple destination in Bali, where visitors can spend a day or so strolling along the seafront and looking at the lovely scenery.

Hanging out on a starry night in Bali is quite breathtaking. The night safari offered by the Kerobokan Island is a popular tourist activity in Bali. The tourists can camp out at the edge of the island at night and then walk to the point where the starry sky turns into a rainbow, as it begins to open. The night safari also allows you to see what is beneath the surface of the sea. The Kerobokan is also a good place to pick up some delicious sea food.
The sea turtle nesting site at Sanur is another interesting attraction in the area. The nest is made of mud, which you can tour and take a picture of.

Tourists can also watch the seals hunt at night when they come to hunt for their prey. While you are on a tour to the sea, you may as well take a boat ride to explore the waters. You can get a spectacular view of the sea and coastline from the boat. The Temples of Nusa Dua and Kerobokan are sure to be the highlights of your tour to the seaside and temple regions in Bali.
