The most beautiful lakes in Bali

There is more to Bali than just white sandy beaches and clear blue ocean, the island has some of the best lakes, hidden in the north of Bali. Discover some of the best ones on our list to inspire your Bali holiday. 

Lake Bratan

One and a half hour away from Padma Resort Ubud lies Lake Bratan, the second largest lake in Bali. Located in Bedugul, it’s the home to one of the island’s iconic temples, Ulun Danu Bratan. Do pay a visit to this charming temple once you’ve reached the lake, and enjoy various water activities on the lake afterwards, which includes pedal boats and cruise around the lake using the traditional Balinese jukung boat.

Twin Lakes: Lake Tamblingan & Lake Buyan

Dubbed as the Twin Lakes, Lake Tamblingan and Lake Buyan sit next to each other in Buleleng regency. It is a 15 minutes ride from here to Lake Bratan. Thanks to its cool climate, locals love to spend a night or two camping near to the lakes. The lakes are located within a Batukaru Nature Reserve, as it’s becoming increasingly popular amongst tourists and visitors.
