Bali is a unique and exotic Indonesian island, offering stunning landscapes that attract visitors from all over the world. Swings are a popular tourist activity that allows visitors to swing and soar above the natural beauty of Bali.
From the iconic Tegallalang Rice Terraces in Ubud to the secluded beaches of Seminyak, Bali swings have become a symbol of the island’s adventurous spirit. Each swing offers its own unique panorama, whether it’s the verdant expanse of rice paddies, the shimmering expanse of the ocean, or the lush tropical jungle.
Here is a list of the top scenic Bali swings that you cannot miss:
What types of swings are available in Bali?
There is not just one type of swing to satisfy your photogenic needs on the island of the gods. For the sake of simplicity, we can divide them into two: the large swings and the smaller ones.
The big swings (paying) of Bali
The big swings in Bali are the most photogenic. They are most often located in front of a precipice, and can be several meters long. These are the ones that give the most impressive shots for sure.
These swings are operated by locals, who ensure their safety, your installation and sometimes even the perfect shot. Prices range from $3 to over $50 depending on the swing and package you choose.
Bali’s free little swings
The small swings are certainly less impressive than their elders, but they are also much lower and can therefore be operated alone in complete safety. As a result, most of them are free.
How to choose your swing in Bali?
Unless you are really looking for a unique shot specific to a particular swing, it is recommended to find out the location of most swings in Bali and then visit them when you plan to visit this area.
Many of them are inland near Ubud. So you can just choose one of the ones that you like the most when you have planned to visit the center of the island.
