2. Get out of your Bali honeymoon hotel and go hiking
We know how some travelers believe that activities like hiking are anything but romantic.
But allow us to inform you that love is built on adventures. Yes, even on a romantic Bali honeymoon. Sure, you can find the best hotels in Bali or luxury resorts, but an experience like hiking, biking, or trekking, for example, will be something to remember. You’ll either be great at it or laugh about it every time you bring it up.
Mount Batur sounds like the perfect plan. Batur is basically an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas. The views of the sunrise from above are so beautiful that you’ll feel like someone has painted an image with indelible ink right in the center of your mind.
As for the price? When any other place in the world offers costly hiking classes, hiking in Bali is affordable.

4. Swing in Bali — like literally
We’ve already established how much of an adventure Bali can be, even for newly-weds.
Here’s a cool, out-of-the-box idea for your Bali honeymoon. Many companies can book a tour for you to visit Bali’s natural swings to swing over the abyss and jungle. Why? for some extra adrenaline rush, of course!
Do you feel uncomfortable swinging on 30 to 250 feet above the ground? You can always adjust your package and choose something more suitable for you. Here’s a brief list of ideas:
- Lie on the romantic bed on the edge of a cliff
- Get into that rock that nature carved into a heart shape

Bali is full of taverns and restaurants to grab a bite of the Balinese food culture. But why don’t you take it a step further?
Take a cooking class and don’t just rely on your tastebuds to explore the culinary side of Bali.
Cooking is an everyday activity for all of us. On average, we spend 37 minutes a day on meal preparation; that’s 225 hours a year. Why not make it more fun?
Many restaurants in Bali offer private cooking classes for you and your better half to explore the ingredients Balinese cook enthusiasts use to make these great local delicacies. Have a glass of wine, spend with your loved on time while exploring new flavors and techniques.
Take the best souvenir with you. The secret ingredient to a person’s heart. Food.
