The next thing to do with the kids in Bali is Waterbom Bali. Even though the price of a ticket to Waterbom Bali is slightly high for budget, but you should take your kids on a holiday in Waterbom Bali. Above everything, Waterbom Bali is a man-made water park. Also, Tripadvisor, Waterbom Bali ranks number one in Asia as the best water park.

In addition, there are 13 types of fun and exciting rides with several other optional activities that your kids can enter. So for sure, three hours in Bali Waterbom Park will not be enough for your kids to have fun. Food and drink would be required in this situation. Because of Waterbom Park, Bali doesn’t allow visitors to carry food or drink; you have to buy it at Bali Waterbom Park.

Cycle off for a day of adventure in the rice paddies and idyllic villages of rural Bali on this 8-hour mountain bike tour.

As you pedal, you’ll stop to admire ancient temples, beautiful volcano views, and lush plantations, and watch local villagers bring colorful religious offerings. A guide with snacks and lunch, a bike and a helmet, and a round-trip pick-up at the hotel is covered.

7. Bali Equestrian Centre

Bali Equestrian Center is a world-class facility offering horse riding lessons. For younger children, they provide a lovely Pony Ride service where your kids can play and ride a pony.

Kids can also learn to cultivate sympathy for ponies, treating them respectfully as a living animal, not just a trip. I agree that bringing your children here will easily be the highlight of their holidays.

8. Bali Submarine Tour

The business that offers a Bali U-boat tour called Odyssey Submarine Bali and is the only one in Bali. The U-boat tour will take place at Amuk Beach east of the island of Bali. Even if it’s a costly task, your kids are likely to have some fun seeing aquatic marine life in their natural environments, different from the kids they see in the aquarium.

9. Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

The Monkey Forest Ubud Sanctuary is home to thousands of long-tailed grey macaques. The monkeys are not caged, but instead they roam freely within the trees.

Apart from the monkeys, the Sanctuary is also surrounded by temples and lush, giant Banyan trees, which is fun for the entire family to walk around.


Be extra vigilant with your belongings as a monkey likes to snatch small items from visitors. Bring tiny locks to stop the monkeys from scrounging your things.

10. Go Shopping at the Shopping Malls

Children of all ages will love taking their hard-earned cash to the markets and spending up big. No matter where you stay in Bali you will find plenty of shops, stalls, and markets to bargain with the locals for t-shirts, homewares, artwork, watches, and jewelry or pick up a bargain at one of the several shopping malls. Shopping for souvenirs is a must-do in Bali with kids of all ages.

11. Have a Massage

Treat the whole family to a little bit of spoiling. There are many places in Bali where you can enjoy a massage or a variety of spa treatments such as pedicures, manicures, facials, and body scrubs. These therapies can be enjoyed on the beach, in the spa day, or in the massage parlor. Prices can vary depending on location, but generally, a 1-hour body massage begins at 70,000 IDR (approximately 7 AUD).

12.  Visit Tanah Lot Temple

Another of the most popular tourist spots in Bali is the Tanah Lot Temple. Located 20 km from Kuta, the Tanah Lot Temple is famed for its offshore setting and spectacular sunset scenery. At low tide, tourists can walk across to see the temple from the rock foundation. While you cannot reach the grounds of the temple, the panoramic views are breathtaking.
Be sure to visit near sunset so you can take the kids to see the Kecak dance show at 6 p.m.

13. Zip, zip, zip!

14. Jet Ski Ride Tanjung Benoa

Now I prefer one of the water sports activities at Tanjung Benoa Beach as one of the kids-friendly stuff to do in Bali, which is a jet ski trip at Tanjung Benoa.

Tanjung Benoa is one of the best locations to do jet skiing in Bali. If you and your children want to try Tanjung Benoa jet skiing, you and your children will be assisted by a jet ski coach, sitting behind your youngsters. These are the ways your children can be healthy during a jet ski trip in the Bay of Tanjung Benoa.

15. Bali Treetop Adventure Park

The area is surrounded by playing in the outdoor world with a green tree. Also the sort of events my kids want to enter is the green squirrel circuit. In addition, there are seven adventure courses with 72 types of challenges at Bali Treetop Adventure Park. So how about your parents? The parent may choose to watch their children play or enter one of the adult adventure challenges—for example, a black adrenaline circuit. You need to enter the Bali Botanical Garden to see the Bali Treetop Adventure Park location. Since Bali Treetop Adventure Park is located within Bali Botanical Garden Bedugul, you will also need to pay IDR 20,000 per person to enter Bali Botanical Garden.

16. The Pirates Bay, Bali Nusa Dua

In addition, Nusa Dua Bali is well known for its luxurious resorts and clean white sandy beaches. Therefore in order to please family travellers during their holidays in Nusa Dua, there is a place named Pirate Bay, Bali, which offers children-friendly things to do in Bali. Pirate Bay, Bali, this is a restaurant. However, it has family games, which are 2-hour bounty hunters, perfect for children over four years of age.

17. The Devdan Show

The show features two young children who discover a treasure chest full of Indonesian objects from each area, including Bali, Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan and Papua. As children explore each object, dance performances showcase the traditions and culture of the regions. What I really like is that there are many TV screens underneath the stage and they clarify some of the local customs so that you have a better understanding of what’s going on. The show is the ideal mix of traditional dance and contemporary special effects, aerial performances, acrobatics, modern dance, and illusions. There are over 40 actors in the show and many more gorgeous and colorful costumes. The performers even go out to the audience a couple of times and get a few members of the audience to dance.

Still in Ubud, one of the kid-friendly things to do in Bali is to visit the Pondok Pekak Library. While at Pondok Pekak Library Ubud, your children will learn and see many different classes of traditional Balinese dance and music, mask making. The library, built for children and soundless, has books in many languages such as English, Dutch, Indonesian, Italian and Japanese. If you want your children to see you, Balinese children will learn to dance and learn a few Indonesian languages. It’ll be fun for you to accompany your girls to the Pondok Pekak Library.

Kids would love to get up close and personal with more than 1,000 birds in 250 species. Check out the daily bird shows where macaws, storks, cockatoos and birds can be seen hovering in the sky.

21. Visit the Marine Park

Bali Safari and Marine Park are some of the best family par you can visit with kids. The park occupies 40 hectares of land and is home to over 60 species of animals, many of which are free in large enclosures close to their natural habitats. Animals come from three regions—Indonesia, India, and Africa—including spotted deer, Himalayan bears, Indian white tigers, nilgai, blackbirds, African hippos, zebras, camels, ostriches, baboons, blue wild beasts, and lions. There’s a free shuttle included with your fare, but it’s probably a lot better for kids to take a cab or a private driver.

22. Explore the Tegalalang Rice Terraces

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Bali will have to be Tegalalang Rice Terraces. Tegalalang Rice Terraces is located a 25-minute drive from Ubud and is renowned for its stunning scenery of rice paddies as far as your eyes can see.

Visitors may either sit and admire its beauty or go down and trek across the fields. Shops and restaurants line the main road next to the terraces, and some provide spectacular views of the terraces.

The easiest way to get there is to hire a car and a driver that you can do when you arrive in Bali or you can arrange online with Klook. Alternatively, you can book a day tour of Ubud, which will also include other attractions such as the Sacred Monkey Forest.

Price: There is no entrance fee to the rice terraces, but parking costs 20,000 IDR.

24. Join a Cooking Class

How good the food is in Bali!!! Why don’t you take a cooking class so that you can make this delicious food when you get home. Some cooking classes also involve a visit to local markets where you buy all your own ingredients before you turn it into something delicious.

25. Visit a Bali Coffee Plantation with kids

Bali’s coffee plantation is a perfect place to try a range of teas, coffees and chocolates. Most of the plantations will give you a free guided tour of the plantation explaining how the products are made and give you oodles and oodles of free product to try. You can also try the popular Kopi Luwak coffee made from civet (a racoon-like animal) drops. But I do not suggest this as civets are generally kept in cruel conditions. After a free tour, you’ll be taken to a gift shop where you can buy some of the items you’ve tried. The easiest way to get there is to hire a car and a driver that you can do when you arrive in Bali or you can arrange online with Klook.

26. Do Nothing Haha!
