Where is Bali?

Bali is located in Indonesia, which is in Southeast Asia. The island is situated between Java and Lombok and is one of the country’s 33 provinces. Bali covers an area of 5,780 square kilometers and is home to over 4 million people.

How to get to Bali?

The most convenient way to reach Bali is by air. The island has an international airport, Ngurah Rai International Airport, which is located in Denpasar, the capital city of Bali. There are regular flights from major cities in Southeast Asia, Australia, and Europe, making it easy for travelers to reach Bali.

Another option for reaching Bali is by ferry from the neighboring island of Java. There are regular ferry services that operate between Bali and Java, and the journey takes approximately 4 hours.

If you’re traveling from WA then it will take you approximately 3.5 hours to fly there with flights usually running three times a day (morning, lunch, and evening).  Personally, if you can I’d recommend catching the morning flight as it allows you plenty of time to arrive, settle in a get to the pool bar before happy hour;)
