Water Skiing is another exciting water sport which requires adequate body strength, and the right balance of the skier. Calmer waters are the most preferred ones, while you are gliding on the surface of the water. Visit Tanjung Benoa Beach to try different kinds of water sports!

Scuba diving

Scuba diving is indeed the most popular water sport here, because of the pure waters and elegant corals. Don’t be afraid, if you do not know how to dive. Scuba trainers here had done their dive instructor course known as Instructor Development Course (IDC). With the help of such mentors, you can explore the underwater world and marine life. When you would like to go diving, it is nice to take a day trip from Lovina to Menjangan Island, Tulamben or Amed.

River Rafting

River Rafting uses a blown boat to navigate a river. Enjoy this whole feel of joy by conquering the rapids and fall in love with the exotic beauty of Bali. There are two rivers to choose from in Bali, the Ayung and the Telaga Waja River. Author Daphne once did rafting on the Ayung river and it was amazing! On the river are plenty of rapids and along the river you will see rice paddy fields, jungle with monkeys, waterfalls, and some forests. The best time for white water rafting in Bali is in the wet-season, between November and March, when the rapids are at their wildest. From April to September there is less water in the rivers and there won’t be too much white water on the rapids.
