Backyard Travel, the online boutique Tour Operator specializing in unique, insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a new 3-day, 2-night tour ‘Unveiling Bali’s West Coast’ – a compact trip that introduces travelers to the stunning western coastline of Bali.
Bali tours typically cover the island’s stunning southern beaches, and the Unveiling Bali’s West Coast tour provides the perfect add-on trip for travelers wishing to explore off the beaten track. Heading through lush rainforest, dramatic volcanic terrain, verdant rice terraces and laid back townships, this tour showcases some of the lesser-seen sights of the Island of the Gods.
Travelers are picked up from their hotel on the southern coastline of Bali, with Tanah Lot Temple as the first stop on the itinerary. The tour then traverses the striking landscapes surrounding Mount Batukaru volcano, allowing time on the black-sand beaches of Pekutatan. There are trips to sleepy villages, ancient shrines and centuries-old palaces, plus a visit to a local turtle conservation center – a fantastic activity for travelers of all ages.
“Bali is a much more diverse island than many travelers realize,” says General Manager of Backyard Travel Maeve Nolan. “This short tour of the western coastline provides the perfect opportunity for travelers to get away from the tourist crowds and to see a side of Bali not many get to experience. We’ve packed a lot into this three-day itinerary – waterfalls, Mount Batukaru volcano, beach time, village visits – to showcase how wonderfully diverse Bali is for those who venture beyond the popular southern beaches.”
