Prepare yourself, parents: Diskova Bali has produced the definitive list of interesting things to do with kids in Bali. These family-friendly activities ensure that your much-needed vacation is not ruined by nagging and bored children. Read it and thank us afterward.
Vacationing in Bali is an amazing experience, and having your children with you makes it even better. However, we are all aware that the children must be entertained and kept happy. They will not want to spend the entire day sitting by the pool and would rather go on an adventure and see some of the gorgeous sights that Bali is famous for.
The following are some fascinating and fun things to do with kids in Bali that will not bore the adults. Remember that you, too, need to take a break. You want to have a good time with the children. Don’t worry about hiring a babysitter or keeping the kids entertained; simply take them to these locations and you’ll have as much fun as they do. Enjoy everything Bali has to offer – a fantastic island suitable for a family trip.
Monkey Forest Ubud
This is a popular destination for families; however, the children must be at least 5 years old because there is some walking involved. However, the Monkey Forest in Ubud is a fantastic day out for the entire family. The monkeys are cheeky and are located within the temple grounds in Ubud. Keep everything safe because these little rascals will take anything they can. I know that sounds horrible and intimidating, but if you can simply accept that they are looking for everything that isn’t bolted to your body, the day out here is fantastic fun. The surroundings are breathtaking, with ancient trees and fascinating Balinese temples, giving you a true sense of religion in this location.
Buy bags of peanuts and bananas from local vendors to keep the youngsters occupied while you watch the monkey go mad. It’s high-quality entertainment. However, because they can bite, I would recommend hiring a local guide. It’s an affordable day trip and only a 90-minute cab ride from Seminyak/Legian.

Bali Safari & Marine Park
You and your children will appreciate this park with all of the wild animals, and the children will like staying up late to observe all of the animal antics at night. When night falls, you can hire a guide to take you around the park to see where all the activity is. I am confident that your children will enjoy this. There are around 60 creatures to see, including Komodo dragons, rhinos, and elephants. Be the coolest parents there and take the kids on an elephant ride.
This is a full-day trip, so bring everything you need for a full day out – there are eateries in the park, so you don’t need to bring much food. It is a theme park including water slides, rides, and a variety of activities to keep both adults and children entertained.

For the lovers of water! – Waterbom Bali
A visit to the Waterbom Park in Kuta is a must-do for every family visiting Bali. This is Asia’s most famous and well-known water park. So, when it gets too hot and you want to cool off with the kids, go to Waterbom Park and have a good time.
This is the ideal day out for parents who have enough energy to manage the slides and keep up with the crazy kids at this place. There isn’t much else to say about this venue other than go, have fun, and snap loads of Instagram and Facebook photos. Because the park is in Kuta, it is easily accessible by taxi for most families staying nearby.

Uluwatu Cave Entrance
For a full fun day out with the kids, head to Suluban Beach in Uluwatu and walk down the cave entrance to the water. You can spend a couple of hours tanning when it’s low tide, soaking up the sun while the kids play in the water. There are many places (local warungs) to eat along the pathway down, so you can spend the day here, have lunch, and buy those must-have Bali souvenirs.
Gallery Trick Art 3d
We realize this isn’t as exciting or adrenaline-pumping as some other activities, but it’s still a fun afternoon out with the kids where you can snap some wonderful shots and laugh at the same time.
Over 75 unbelievably realistic paintings make you feel like you’re right there in the middle of everything – pose with the sharks, waterfalls, and animals – once there, both kids and adults will have a great time.
