Bali is synonymous with paradise – spoilt for lush rice terraces, dramatic volcanoes, and a bohemian vibe that pervades the island. Sometimes called ‘The Island of the Gods’, this popular tourist destination still retains an undiscovered charm, with its unique Balinese culture, traditions, and strong religious foundations.
The island is a haven for sea adventurers, and, while it is more famous for its surfing, the north-eastern corner of Bali is a surf-free zone, which is excellent for open water swimming. It’s there that we’ll comb the coastline, threading the surface over vibrant coral reefs, populated by rich marine life that shoal and scatter over a seabed of black sand.
This trip is based in the fishing village of Amed, which sits underneath the volcanic peak of Mount Agung - Bali’s highest and most spiritually significant site, revered by the island’s Hindu population. Its high imposing slopes are clearly visible as we swim along the varied coastline over the entire trip. The reefs, with their flourishing populations of marine life, slope right from the shore, so the swimming is always interesting and varied, with plenty to look at!
Who is this trip for?
This trip is for those who want to enjoy some stunning coastal swims along with the chilled-out ambience that the fishing village of Amed has to offer.
