At a glance

Get off the grid and under the skin of rural Bali. The north and east coasts of this beautiful island are still flying under the radar of most travellers and are perfect for those looking for a true escape without compromising on luxury.

We’ve designed this trip around some sailing time in Manggis with an itinerary that also includes some fishing and snorkelling, and a few nights in Munduk. Trek through the forests to discover spectacular waterfalls, look out for dolphins in the Bali Sea and exploring the quiet temples and villages that remain largely untouched by tourism. Then duck down into an underwater wonderland off the coast of Pulau Menjangan, and explore the lush countryside on horseback.
