Bali is an incredibly special island, full of spirituality and beauty. But it is becoming increasingly busy so you need to know where to go.

I have been lucky enough to spend four months exploring this wonderful island, because I just love it here. The main place that draws me back is Ubud which is a haven for yoga lovers.

To the south of the island you have Uluwatu and Sanur, where I found a fabulous beachfront yoga studio and went back to school to learn Balinese massage. To the east you have the laid-back black sand beach resorts of Amed, where you can scuba dive a famous shipwreck. From Amed you can catch a fast boat to the nearby Gili Islands which are well-loved by backpackers.

In the heart of Bali, among the forested mountains you will find the peaceful village of Munduk where you can explore the waterfalls, see incredible sunsets and embark on a thrilling off-road adventure tour. Then to the west you have the lesser known beach towns of Pemuteran and Balian which are well worth a visit.
