Love hiking? Just behind Manggis is the towering backdrop to Bali. Mount Agung is the highest mountain on the island, and offers a challenging climb for adventure seekers. As you follow the track up the mountain keep an eye open for the fantastic native wildlife, and regular appearances of hawks and eagles soaring overhead. Stop in at the Besakih Temple, which is otherwise known as the ‘Mother Temple’ of Bali. Sitting 3000 feet up the slopes of Mount Agung, it's the most important Hindu temple in Bali. Stroll through the fantastic complex where you'll find 23 different temples for you to explore. These all date back to the 14th century, and are fantastic historical sites full of history.
Outside of Manggis visit the Tirtagangga, a Royal Water Palace that has recently been opened to the public. Here you can relax in lush tropical gardens and swim in the cool spring-fed pools, while dreaming of what life was like for the king. Check out the tiny little community of Tenganan Village, and none is more rooted in the past than this quaint little village. Watch as the locals craft handmade fabric and weaves, while others play the traditional Gamelan Selunding instruments.
No trip is complete without spending time at the beach, so visit the best in the region just 10 minutes away at Pasir Putih Beach. The sand is mostly white, with dark volcanic streaks peeking through. Surrounded by palm trees the allure of the beach is the calm waters and fantastic scenery. Come enjoy swimming in the ocean, snorkelling in fantastic reefs or simply sunbathing on the sand with a good book.
