Bali is one of the most beautiful destinations in South East Asia. This Island Nation has boomed in the last decade and has become one of the most visited island destinations in the world garnering millions of visitors all over the year. Let us look at some of The Best Day Trips To Go From Bali on your vacation.

1. Lombok

Lombok is the much more laid back and secluded sister island and is one of The Best Day Trips To Go From Bali. This laid back sister Island of Bali is accessible by both boat and by aeroplane. With it being well connected by both water and air routes it makes for one of the best places to go on a day trip from Bali. Lombok is home to some of the best beaches in all of Indonesia. It has long sandy beaches, amazing viewpoints and picturesque highlands. The best part about Lombok is that it is much more private and secluded compared to Bali. The island has temples, mountains, some great cafes to offer. But the best way to spend a day in the island would be at the Selong Belanak beach and Rinjani National Park. Both of these attractions are some of the best places to visit in Lombok.

2. Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is a speck and a dot on the Indonesian seas. This tiny island which was once a dungeon in the middle of the ocean is now a tropical paradise near Bali. Nusa Penida is at a distance of about 45 minutes to 1 hour from Bali and is best visited via ferry or a catamaran. You could also take a speedboat if you are looking for such an experience. Nusa Penida is home to the best beaches in Bali along with some unique flora and fauna. It is a dreamy island destination which is also perfect for honeymoon couples to spend some time in. Nusa Penida is one of The Best Day Trips To Go From Bali. You can also do an overnight stay in one of the beachside resorts.

3. Komodo National Park

If you are a wildlife enthusiast and love to surround yourself in nature and indigenous species, the Komodo National Park is a perfect place to be at. While the Komodo National Park has great sceneries to offer, the star attraction of the show is the Komodo dragon itself. The Komodo dragons are the largest species of lizards in the world. These Komodo dragons are indigenous species and the national park was set up specifically for their growth and protection. The Komodo National Park is in itself a UNESCO world heritage site and is a protected land along with the animal species in it. The best way to reach the Komodo National Park is by flying to Labuan Bajo airport on Flores. It is at about a one and a half hour distance from Bali via air travel.

4. Menjangan Island

The Menjangan Island is an underrated and hidden gem that has been kept a secret from the larger world outside. The Menjangan Island is a paradise for snorkelers and divers. The marine life, biodiversity and the coral reefs that are in this Menjangan Island are a treat to explore and experience. The beaches are some of the most peaceful and secluded. The island is filled with natural species and animals. The wild deers are often spotted in the beaches of this island. The Menjangan Island takes about 30 minutes to reach by motorboat if you are starting from the northwestern side of Bali. I suggest you to go with an experienced guide to get the best experience.
