Candidasa. Accessible wheelchair travel in Bali

Bali for All

Bali is not entirely barrier-free. In Hinduism, levels and stairs are an important part of the philosophy surrounding a temple – there are a lot of stairs. However, travel with a wheelchair in Bali is possible, and visitors with disabilities can certainly explore the many sides of Bali. We bring you there!

Our Bali Day Trips take you to all the great destinations – put your own tour together with us. You can also combine visiting Bali with a trip to Yogyakarta or Sulawesi.

Travel with a wheelchair in Bali – Where to go

Bali is known as the island of the Gods. Hinduism is alive in everyday life and one encounters ceremonies and offers to the Gods at every turn. The countryside of mountains, terraced rice paddies and forests is covered with temples of every size. Famous for the white sandy beaches in the touristic south, the centre of Bali is dominated by volcanoes, led by Mount Agung, the Great Mountain, with magnificent lakes in green valleys. Traditional arts and crafts include wild ritual dances, gamelan music, wood carvings and paintings. 

We bring you to the best places in Bali and make sure you can get there when you are having a disability or travel with a wheelchair.

The ancient bathing pools of Tirta Empul were built around a holy spring. Still today it is well used for cleansing ceremonies by the Balinese.
