Wind in your salty hair, without a care in the world! Here are the must-visit swings in Bali with the most stunning views – from North Bali to the rice terrace in Ubud and beyond…
If there’s one thing that Bali is famous for, it’s the island’s awe-inspiring landscapes. Whether you’re an adventurer who loves the mountains, the swaying palms, and the tranquil lakes and winding jungle rivers, or a sun-seeking bohemian soul who can’t get enough of the beach, there’s always a spot for you on the island. But what if we told you that instead of trekking through the rice paddies or swimming towards the setting sun, you can swing high into the sky to enjoy Bali’s stunning nature from above? Yep, we’re talking about the always-Instagrammable swings in Bali…
Perhaps one of the most popular attractions in Bali, swinging above the treetops and overlooking the very best of the island’s landscape is an adrenaline-pumping activity that’s been sought after by locals and travellers alike. And luckily for us, there’s plenty of swings in Bali with the most beautiful and diverse views – from the mountains and rice terraces, to the beach and the endless ocean. Here are some of our favourite swings on the island!

2. Swings at Wanagiri Hidden Hill
The best thing about Wanagiri Hidden Hill is its prime location: high up in the mountains of Munduk, North Bali, with 360 degrees of panoramic views. It’s not surprising that the venue offers a number of swings with your choice of backdrop – from hanging swings overlooking Lake Buyan and the mountain range, to a fully-geared-up high swing, on which you can fly away towards the jungle and the waterfalls. And once you’re all swinged out, the beautiful nests are not to be missed either – if you’re lucky, you’ll catch the mystical fog that enveloping the surroundings from time to time…

Maha Gangga Valley is where you go for agro-tourism in East Bali. The grounds are spacious, with activities aplenty, and one of them is the high swing. You’ll fly away over the rice fields, with breathtaking views of the lush jungle. Our tip? Make a whole weekend out of it and stay at the campground. Swing by day and learn how to grow sunflowers and rice from local farmers. You can also go marigold-picking and graze on warung-style feasts. Gather around the fire pits in the evening and mingle with other happy campers before snuggling into your cute alang-alang hut.

10. The swing at Alas Harum
Overlooking the Tegallalang rice terraces, the swing at Alas Harum is not for the faint hearted. Your first warning is the three levels that you can choose from: extreme (yep, that’s the first level…), couple swing, and the super extreme. The extreme swing is a favourite amongst children and those not keen on flying, as you will be swinging from the lowest height on offer. You can also grab a friend and swing on the couple swing. But if you’re looking for an extra adrenaline surge, fly solo 25 metres above the ground on the super extreme swing! Be sure to make some time for other activities too, like sky biking, coffee tasting and photoshooting. And psst… Alas Harum is home to a fab day club, Cretya Ubud, where you can chill by the three-layered pool as you munch away on Indonesian food with a modern twist.
