Are you planning your summer vacation with the kids? Why not fly to Bali, Indonesia and discover an amazing tropical paradise! From getting up close and personal with Balinese wildlife to checking out the sights, there are plenty of activities that kids and grownups will enjoy. If your family loves the beach, how about trying out a few of these Bali beach activities:

Horseback Riding

There are several riding schools in Bali. The Bali Equestrian Center offers a lot of kid-friendly activities. At the center kids are allowed to explore the stables, groom and pet the ponies, and learn more about taking care of the animals. Depending on what your kids enjoy, they can also chose between beachside or countryside riding lessons.

Snorkeling Lesson

If your little ones are true beach babies then Bali is a great place to teach kids how to snorkel. Several beach spots in the region offer calm, pristine waters that are perfect for young children to discover the thriving marine life below!

One of the best snorkeling spots in Bali for kids is Lipah. Children as young as 8 can start snorkeling under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

As for diving sites for kids, there are spots that have crystal clear waters and pebbled sea floor rather than sand. These dive sites feature the colorful Indonesian marine life and soft corals.

Dining by the Beach

If you’d rather relax with the children and enjoy the local cuisine, why not dine by the beach? The Balinese shoreline is lined with an eye-popping array of restaurants, cafes, and specialty stores.

While dining by the beach is more expensive than eating on backstreets, the breathtaking view, and relaxing ambiance are well worth the price. You can sip cold beer after a long day while the kids run and play on the beach.

Bali is one of the top surfing destinations in the world. Surfing isn’t exactly for the faint of heart, but as long as an older child is assisted by an instructor, there should be no problems.

The best beach for older kids to learn how to surf is Sanur. The water is protected from big swells by a massive reef. This place has a lot of shady spots too. You can relax under the shade while the kids learn how to surf or frolic in the cool waters.
