Bali: Two Day East Island Tour

On this East Bali tour, you will visit the Tirta Gangga Water Palace – a beautiful complex of many pools connected by ponds. Carved bridges are thrown across the ponds teeming with colourful fish, and there are many different carved statues around. Perfectly flat shores with emerald grass and tropical plants. The water palace of Tirta Gangga is a magnificent building of the local ruler in the past. You will also visit Pura Luhur Lempuyang Temple. This is one of the oldest temples in Bali and one of the most revered. This is an incredibly magical place.

Exploring East Bali, you will also find Bias Tugel White Sand beach (which goes by many other names too – Secret Beach, White Sand Beach, Virgin Beach to name a few!). It has a beautiful view, clean clear water, and white sand. Here you can relax in the shade, swim if you wish, and dine in a small cosy restaurant on the seashore.

And the best part of the tour for the sweet tooth is the chocolate factory! There you can taste all kinds of chocolate, buy gifts and souvenirs such as handmade soap and take pictures on the famous beach swing. You will remember those two days for sure!
