Bali, fine sandy beaches and unique landscapes

Bali is part of the Lesser Sunda Islands archipelago, lying between Java and Lombok, in the Indian ocean. This Indonesian province stretches over some 5 600 kmĀ² and counts nearly 4 million inhabitants. The capital, Denpasar, is in the south of the island.
Bali is known best for its many fine sandy beaches and turquoise sea. The perfect place to lie in the sun or to enjoy remarkable experiences. You can surf or even dive, and discover many kinds of tropical fish and multi-coloured coral reefs. But Bali's landscapes hold many more surprises for you. As you head towards the centre of the island, you will discover lush protected landscapes. Like the Balinese, get on a motor-bike and head for nature. Riding across the rice fields, the equatorial forest and the many dormant volcanoes, discover breath-taking natural curiosities. Those who enjoy nature and new scenery won't be disappointed by the journey.
Bali"s equatorial climate is another of the island's attractions. Whatever the season, the weather will be pleasant with plenty of sunshine. Don't forget waterproof clothing though, as short but heavy showers can fall at any time of year (but mainly from November to February) Air France offers regular flights to Bali all year round. Don't forget to check the entry requirements before your departure.

Bali, the Island of the Gods

The Balinese are strongly attached to their traditions and customs. Nicknamed the "Island of the Gods", Bali will surprise you with its local customs. The days here are marked by offerings and prayers, giving Bali its reputation for religious ceremonies. If you are interested by this cultural aspect of the island, then you mustn't miss the Tanah Lot temple, only accessible at low tide. Set out to discover Balinese art (in particular, painting and sculpture) by visiting the museums in Denpasar and Ubud (the cultural capital of the country).
And for those who prefer the fiesta, Bali is also the ideal place. Enjoy yourself on the Kuta beach enjoying its discotheques, bars and tourist shops, or at Sanur to meet the islanders.
Whether you are looking for landscapes, culture or fun, Bali is your ideal destination. Plenty of reasons to benefit from an Air France flight which will bring you to this corner of Paradise.
