Bali Volunteer in Bali

"My time in Bali with the project was genuinely one of the best decisions I’ve made. The local team are all glorious people and the programme is really well put together and so much fun. Make the most of it by getting involved with all of the building and diving sessions. The food is amazing (thank you chefs) and just know that you’ll be well looked after. I sobbed when I left and I’m not the only one! I couldn’t recommend it more."

Bali is an island and province covering an area of just over 2,200 square miles (5,700 square kilometres) in the Lesser Sunda Islands, of Indonesia. It is situated 1 mile (1.6 km) east of the island of Java, separated by the narrow Bali Strait.

Bali is probably the most famous of Indonesia’s islands of recent times, due to its spectacular mountain scenery, tropical beaches, affordability and friendly Balinese people. In addition, it has an incredible culture to explore; renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music.

Volunteer in Bali our on our reef restoration programme and take part in helping to restore the coral reefs in the north eastern part of the island.  This programme is located off the tourist trail in the north eastern part of the island in a small fishing community, so you would be able to experience a genuine Balinese culture whilst helping to restore Bali’s beautiful reefs.

History and Culture

Visited by Chinese traders and Indian literati, the Balinese had embraced Hinduism by the 7th century CE. Now Bali is the only Hindu-majority province in Indonesia, with almost 70% of the population adhering to Balinese Hinduism. Bali is renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, woodcarving, handcrafts, and performing arts. Balinese cuisine is also distinctive. Balinese percussion orchestra music, known as gamelan, is unique to this part of the world.
