Best Recreational Facilities In Bali

There are many wonderful ways to spend your leisure time here in Bali to find the best recreational facilities, especially if you’re in the tourist and residential areas within South Bali like Canggu, Seminyak, Jimbaran, or Uluwatu.

A beach is always a great option, and surfing too, but you can also participate in water sports, engage in group sports like tennis or soccer, solo sporting activities like jogging and running, join a yoga class, and even volunteer in meaningful causes.

Let’s take a look at some of the best recreational facilities and activities there are in Bali!

Play Tennis

Tennis is a great way to get active! Book a court at Liga Tennis in Umalas or join a group class. Liga Tennis is a brand new, modern facility that welcomes players of all ages and all levels of experience. There are group classes for beginners, intermediate players, and advanced training. Private lessons, group sessions, and courses are also available.

Play Bowling - recreational facilities bali

Go, Bowling

Head to ‘Strike Ten Pin Bowling’ at Finns Recreation Club in Canggu if you’re in the mood for some indoor bowling! A cool and modern venue with 6 lanes with automatic pinsetters complete with a computerized scoring system! There’s also an air-conditioned restaurant and bar area serving easy bites and refreshing drinks.

Ride A Jukung

A jukung is a colorful, traditional fishing boat here in Bali but you can also hire one to enjoy a fun trip out to sea! If you see a line of Jukung boats lined up on shore, speak to a local in a nearby warung and he or she will most likely be able to redirect you to the owner of the boat. Rates are usually per hour. Remember that many locals are doing their best to survive now due to the pandemic, so please do not negotiate too much.

Go Snorkeling or Paddle Boating

Benoa used to be the hub of water sports before the pandemic hit. If you want to enjoy some light snorkeling, head to Padangbai, Amed, or Candidasa in East Bali. Bali’s sister islands of Lembongan and Penida are also great for snorkeling although these would be more suited for experienced swimmers. If you want to go paddle boating, you can head to Sanur or Nusa Dua –  the waters here are calm and shallow, great for some safe and relaxing fun!


There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer for a good cause here in Bali while having fun and making new friends! Help with Bali’s plastic pollution problem by participating in a beach cleanup with Sungai Watch, or see how you can help the locals who are living in the most rural parts of the island with Feed Bali!
