Whatever you’re looking for, there’s something to cater for every family of thrill-seekers here.

Bali, Indonesia

If you fancy giving Indonesia a try, Bali is an ideal place for family adventure holidays. Perhaps the best known province of Indonesia, this island has far more to offer than just luxury beach breaks, with plenty to keep even the most cynical teenager entertained. For a wild encounter that mixes culture and nature, there’s the Monkey Forest in Ubud, which is home to hundreds of Balinese long-tailed monkeys. The ‘Macaca fascicularis’, to give them their technical name, live in the forest and in around three 12-century Hindu temples, and visitors can wander the trails of these creatures in their natural habitat. If you’re looking for something sportier, you can get a thrilling perspective on Bali’s forests with a treetop adventure, and there are plenty of options for hikes or bicycle tours if you prefer to stay on solid ground. And if you really want to make a splash, there are no shortage of water sports in Bali: learn to surf, snorkel or take up white water rafting in a dramatic and beautiful setting.

Snorkelling and seasonal surfing are also on the agenda in Cherating.
