Bali Family Holidays – Awesome Things to Do and Epic Attractions

With an amazing beach, fabulous food, welcoming locals and interesting culture, Bali is a tropical playground that’s brimming with awesome things to do and epic attractions. There’s something for every family, from wild encounters with animals (like night safaris and butterfly domes!), artistic escapades for little Mozarts, and outdoor pursuits for adventurers.

One of the best Bali family holidays is to hop on a bike and explore the island at your own pace. You can choose from bike tours that cover the city or the inland areas, depending on what’s most interesting to your family.

The craggy coastline of Nusa Dua is a stunning sight to behold, and there are plenty of rustic cafes and beach huts serving fresh seafood. It’s the perfect place to refuel after a day out on the water, or stretch out on a deckchair and take in the sunset.

Kids will love jumping in the sea and exploring the rock pools, while teens can have a go at surfing. Whether you’re new to the sport or just a novice, there are plenty of schools to help you get started and perfect your skills.

There are plenty of family-friendly beaches on the island, but some are more child friendly than others. Kuta, Seminyak and Sanur are all great options for families. There are also plenty of Bali family holidays that offer all-inclusive packages, including activities, meals and accommodation – the best way to make your holiday stress free.

You can opt for a resort hotel, with plenty of facilities to keep everyone entertained, or you can book your trip backpacker-style. Both options work well in Bali, but if you opt for a resort, look for one that offers a kids club and special family hotel suites.

The Kecak Fire Dance is a beautiful performance to behold, with the human vocals acting as instruments to strengthen the story being told through dance. You can see the show at sunset on a cliff-top amphitheater at Uluwatu Temple or in central Ubud.

Foodies will want to mooch around the best traditional markets on the island, where you’ll find everything from farm-fresh fruit and veg to hand-made artisan goods and luxe fabrics. Or, head to a popular tourist market where you’ll be spoilt for choice with modern merch and souvenirs.

High tea is a quintessentially British thing, and it’s a lovely tradition to share with your children when you’re on holiday in Bali. Ginger Moon is a great option in Seminyak, with New Zealand chef Dean Keddell’s fusion of Asian and international flavours impressing. Kids will love their selection of sweet and savoury treats, and they’ll be thrilled with their own special ‘mocktails’ served in I.V bags and syringes.
