Getting Away from It All

List View
Map View
At first glance getting away from it all in bustling Bali might not seem so easy, but in fact the densely packed hotspots of the south of the island are easy to escape. Outside these areas Bali is largely untouched with jungle to the west and mountains and an arid landscape reminiscent of parts of the Mediterranean with quiet beaches and fishing villages to the east. Grab a motorbike or a driver and you'll be surprised at how quickly you find the 'real Bali'.
