Bali Safari & Marine Park

If you little one is an animal lover, you can’t miss the Bali Safari Park where you’ll get to meet more than 100 species, including tigers, elephants, lions and orangutans. You can pet tigers, feed zebras and then cool off at the water park.

Bali Butterfly Park

Especially exciting for younger kids, the Bali Butterfly Park offers a spectacular opportunity to admire the beautifully coloured and elegant butterfly population native to Bali.

With over 500 butterflies residing at the park, visitors can experience different stages of metamorphosis from close up. It really is a spectacular experience for kids and adults of all ages.

Bali Treetop Adventure Park

Fly amongst the trees with a birds-eye-view of the beautiful Bali jungles at the Treetop Adventure Park in Bedugul.

This thrilling yet kid-friendly adventure offers 6 tree-top circuits connected with rope bridges and a flying fox, sending you flying around the beautiful tropical gardens.

Sacred Monkey Forest

The Ubud Monkey Forest is another fantastic place to spend the day on your family holiday.

This is a unique place to get up close with local long-tailed macaques (over 700 of them!). You can explore lush jungle, visit the temple and feed monkeys.

Young children should be closely supervised here, as the monkeys can be a bit overwhelming.

Bali Zoo

Another one for the animal lovers, the Bali Zoo offers some memorable experiences. You could start the day by breakfasting with orangutans or give an elephant a mud bath.

Their Night at the Zoo lets you experience nocturnal animals from 6 – 9pm. Combine dinner with Sumatran tigers and feeding elephants, and you have an unforgettable family experience.

ATV adventure

Older kids will have a blast getting muddy on an ATV adventure. Blast through rice paddies, jungles and local villages.

Various tour operators offer this, so make sure to check minimum age requirements before booking.

Saba Beach Horse Riding

Whether you’ve owned horses, or you’ve never saddled up before, riding a horse along the beach in Saba Bay is something everyone in the family can enjoy.

Choose from sunrise rides to 90 minute beach rides. Kids can also take riding lessons at the Saba Beach stables. Your helpful instructors can adapt your ride to suit your ability and experience with riding horses. 

Waterbom Bali

Waterbom Bali waterpark is a must-do on your family holiday.

Spend the day splashing around on some seriously steep water slides and world-class rides to get your adrenaline pumping. With delicious food, all day entertainment and a great place to get some respite from those scorching hot days, Waterbom Bali offers the perfect day of fun for the whole family.

Banana Boat Rides

With Bali’s year round warm temperatures, it makes sense to get involved in as many water sports as you can. And what better way to do this with the family than to head out on a group Banana Boat Ride?

In essence, a Banana Boat is a long, inflatable tube that riders’ straddle while being towed behind a boat or jet ski. Depending on the ages of your children and their appetite for adrenaline, your ride can be fast and thrilling or a bit more of a casual cruise to suit everyone’s preferences.

If you haven’t tried it before, Banana Boating is definitely one to include in your family holiday itinerary.
