Bali is an Indonesian island located south of Sri Lanka. It's about 8 degrees south of the equator and lies between the much larger island of Java to the west and Lombok to the east. Bali is actually a series of six volcanoes that stretch from west to east and form the island and its varied terrain. The south and west of Bali are generally warmer and sunnier than the central and northeast, where the mountains and lush tropical vegetation are fed by frequent rainfall. The island is only a little more than 2,000 square miles, but the islands features many mountains and peaks, lush tropical mountainsides, craters, lakes, black sand beaches to the north, and white sand beaches and surfing to the south and west. Divers can find dive sites all around the island. Try to see maps of Bali and for more information.
