Whether you’re an influencer or you just want to show off your holiday pics, Bali is the perfect place to be an Instagram user. From dazzling nature to gorgeous resorts to thrilling adventures, our island offers visual wealth unparalleled in the entire world. Bring your phone to these stunning instagrammable locations in Bali to get that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Wanagiri Hidden Hills
You may want to head up to the Wanagiri Hidden Hills for the famous swing, but there’s so much more at this natural attraction. Nests, perches, and other bamboo constructions are present in ample supply overlooking a heart-stopping view of distant hills over the ocean. It’s the perfect marriage of human engineering and natural beauty, and whether you’re looking for a great solo shot or an adorable couples moment, it’s not to be missed. Entrance ranges from 20,000 to 40,000 IDR per person. (That’s less than $3.00!)
Tegalalang Rice Terraces
Ubud is famous for its rice terraces, and rightly so. Verdant and sweeping, they’re a dramatic testament to human coexistence with nature. Up close and from overlooks, there isn’t a more remarkable sight on the entire island. Finding the terraces can be a bit of a trick, but if your Instagram is to be complete, then you just can’t miss this extraordinary sight. Little Grey Box has a fantastic guide on how to find them.
Campuhan Ridge Walk
If you’ve already seen and Instagrammed Tegalalang, then it’s time to see another famous Ubud sight: the Campuhan Ridge! Nature lovers must not pass up this unique walk, which gives hikers a perfect look over the natural side of Bali. Don’t worry about difficulty: the path is paved and very easy to navigate. Be aware that there’s little shade and the path gets hot very quickly! Dawn and sunset are ideal times to visit one of the most Instagrammable locations in Bali.
Padang Padang Beach
Let’s be honest: people come to Bali not just for the culture and natural wonder, but for the expansive, sandy beaches and perfect blue water! If you want a beach shot for your Instagram account, then Padang Padang Beach is where you need to go next. If there were a model for all beaches the world over, it would be Padang Padang! The beach is located on the south side of the island and, according to This Island Life, there’s even a little mild surfing to be had.
Here’s an attraction you’ll want to visit earlier in the day – by afternoon, it’s crowded with tourists! That’s because it’s one of Bali’s most Instagrammable locations. Set in lush jungle, this twin set of cascades flows throughout the year. Travel Triangle reports that it’s at its most impressive during the rainy season, November to March.
Bali’s Mother Temple is the largest and most important Hindu holy spot on the island. If you visit, be sure to respect the rich heritage and cultural tradition that gave rise to this beautiful and sacred place. That said, tourists are very welcome at this mountaintop holy space and it’s a popular visitor hot spot for religious and secular travelers alike. While the temple itself is stunning, be sure and point the camera at the surrounding hills, too! Bali Cheapest Tours has more details on how to visit this one-of-a-kind place.
Besakih Temple isn’t the only holy place on Bali! Many people prefer the smaller and more intimate Tanah Lot, the sea temple that is only accessible during low tide. Although it’ll take more planning to enjoy this spot, we promise that it’s worth your while. You can even be blessed by a priest as you visit! Bookmundi wisely advises visiting during the low season, as Tanah is often overrun with tourists at the high points of the year.
Another temple of the sea stands on a 70-meter cliff overlooking the ocean. In addition to being gorgeous, Uluwatu is one of the nine holy sites meant to protect Bali from evil spirits. It’s hard to think of a more Instagrammable location on Bali, and it’s very much worth a trip whether or not you want it for your Instagram account. (And really, why wouldn’t you?) All Indonesia Travel has more details.
After a long week of running from attraction to attraction, you might well want to spend a day at a quieter beach for a relaxing afternoon in the shade and the waves. For one last Instagram post, you can’t beat Kelingking Beach. Also known as Secret Point, this stunning beach, located along soaring cliffs, is small and secluded on its own little island. The cliff walk features a bamboo railing that occasionally disappears, so be sure of your footing if you want to capture that pic of a lifetime! Journeyera gives all the details on how to best appreciate Kelingking.
