Activities for kids in Bali

Bali offers a range of activities for people of all ages. From cultural tours to extreme sports there is sure to be something to please everyone.

We have put together a list of some of our favorite family friendly activities.

Activities for kids in Bali :

Bali wake park
This is a newly opened establishment and suitable for children from 6 years and adults too will enjoy this. We had a group ranging from 6 years to 50+ years and had many laughs throughout the day.

Located close to the Bali Mandara toll road ( Benoa side), Bali wake park offers Activities cable wakeboarding / knee boarding and the adventurous aqualand. You don’t need to pre book, simply take a driver or taxi and enjoy your day.

Facilities include restaurant, swimming pool, life vests, boards and shower facilities.

Big Garden Corner

A large garden, outdoor water splash park and small indoor play center located on the outskirts of Sanur.
Suitable for all ages and many activities for children. Take a camera as plenty of photo opportunities.  The restaurant serves excellent food and all at reasonable prices.

Additional activities include cooking classes and traditional Balinese costume dress up/photo.

Put this one on your list for a great family day out.

Bali Zoo

Located about an hour’s drive from Kuta in Gianyar, the Bali zoo offers fun for all ages. Family friendly with great paths for strollers, large play area for the kids and several restaurants to choose from.

Activities on offer include –

  • Breakfast with orangutan
  • Elephant expedition
  • Dinner with the great elephant
  • Elephant riding / pony riding
  • Animal and bird shows
  • Animal feeding

Just when you think it’s getting hot and the kids need to cool down you can venture to the splash park which is included in your ticket price.


Magic World

This attraction is located on the Bypass towards Sanur so it’s easy to take a taxi to and from. We spent around an hour here. You will have your own personal guide taking you through each room where you can take illusion photos, watch magic tricks, be part of the magic show and even see just how some of tricks are performed.

If you are looking for an activity to get you out of the heat or even out of the rain, this is a great spot. Please note that this is not stroller friendly as there are stairs.

Nusa Dua Water Sport

Head out to Nusa Dua to one of the several water sport companies on offer. Here you will find a range of activities including parasailing, banana boat ride, jet skiing, donuts rides, fly fish and a few other activities.

Be prepared to bargain for a good price or arrange through a tour person before you go.

Bali bike ride

This is one of my personal favorites. Starting with pick up from your hotel you will head to Kintamani,Mt Batur where you can enjoy a breakfast of coffee and fried banana. From here it’s a nice casual ride which takes around 3 hours – approx. 30km.

The ride is mainly downhill and takes you through rice fields andvillages where you can see the local farmers maintaining their crops, rice drying on the side of the roads, local housing and smiling children all the way

At the end of the ride you will enjoy a buffet lunch and perhaps even a swim depending on the tour company you book with.

Most bikes are now equipped with a baby seat on request so your little one doesn’t need to miss out.
