Parasailing in Bali

Known appropriately as the Island of the Gods, Bali is made up of some of the world's most stunning landscapes — rolling hills, verdant rice terraces, and pristine beaches. And what better way to experience its beauty than from above?

Parasailing tours in Bali are a quintessential adventure, and one of the many ways to spend your time in and around the island. Not only will you get to enjoy breathtaking bird's-eye views, but you'll also get a mighty adrenaline rush!

Here's all you need to know about parasailing tours, one of the most exhilarating outdoor activities in Bali.

What are the best parasailing tours in Bali?

Thanks to its year-round warm weather, you're blessed with a wide selection of parasailing tours. Usually taking place at Tanjung Benoa beach or Nusa Dua, parasailing adventures can either be purchased standalone or as part of a multi-activity water sports package.

The standalone parasailing tour will take you high up in the air, where you can feel the wind in your face and soak up the views as you're gently pulled along by a boat below. You can either ride solo or book a tandem sail, which has room for two people.

In addition to parasailing, some water sports tours can include the banana boat, flying fish, jet skiing, flyboarding and seawalking. These are typically great value for money as you can save up to 50% off the standalone price of each activity.

If you prefer to avoid the hassle, opt for one of the parasailing tours with hotel pickup and drop-off.
