East Bali: Snorkeling, Canyoning, and Waterfall Day Trip

1. East Bali: Snorkeling, Canyoning, and Waterfall Day Trip

Head out to Bali’s east coast for idyllic scenery and gorgeous beaches, with fewer crowds than other parts of the island. After pick-up, you’ll continue to Tanjung Jepun and Blue Lagoon for snorkeling sessions with an expert instructor. Glide above the vibrant coral reefs and keep an eye out for reef sharks, sea turtles, lion fish, and squid. The next stop is Tegenungan Waterfall, a short distance from Ubud. Get up close to the waterfall, swim in the water below it, and cool off from the tropical sunshine before continuing on to the hidden canyon in Sukawati. Finally, you’ll reach the Beji Guwang Hidden Canyon. The stone walls here were formed by river erosion over thousands of years, leaving beautiful patterns. Trek along the river before taking the chance to jump into the water. Rest up after your full-day adventure as you’re transported back to your accommodation.
