Places of visit
1. Pura Tanah Lot:
About 20 kilometers northwest of Kuta, Pura Tanah Lot is one of Bali’s most iconic temples. Its spectacular seaside setting, on a rocky islet surrounded by breaking waves amazes all who visit it. It was built at the beginning of the 16th century and is thought to be inspired by the priest Nirartha, who asked local fishermen to build a temple here after spending the n1ight on the rock outcrop. Although foreigners can’t enter any of the temples, you can walk across to the main temple at low tide.
Timings: 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. To make the most of their Bali tour, tourists are recommended to visit the temple during sunset hours, i.e. between 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
2. Uluwatu Temple:
In Balinese, “Ulu” means “tip” or “land’s end” and “Watu” means rock, a fitting name for the location of the temple on the Bukit Peninsula, along the island’s southwestern tip. Like Pura Tanah Lot, sunset is the best time to visit, when the sky and sea glow in the late afternoon light.
Timings: 7 a.m to 7 p.m
3. Nusa Dua Beach:
you can recline on a comfortable sun lounger, cool drink in hand, and listen to the gentle slosh of surf on silky, white sands in the nusa dua beach.

About 66 kilometers north of Ubud, the Sekumpul Waterfall is considered by many to be the most beautiful waterfalls in Bali. The waterfall is actually a series of around seven falls, cascading like long misty sails over the ledge of a lush jungle-covered cliff.
Bali is known for its designers and fabulous shopping, and you’ll find the best examples of Balinese design along the busy streets of Seminyak.

This coastal region is not only one of the best places to visit in Hawaii, but it is also very rich in Hawaiian cultural history. This area was home to Hawaiian Ali’i (royalty) and was known for its waterfalls and abundant freshwater rivers, abundant Hawaiian flora and fauna, and an excess of natural food sources from the valley to the sea; taro, sweet potatoes, breadfruit, fresh fish and more. As the Na Pali coastline is only accessible on foot or by boat, it has remained somewhat isolated.
2. Volcanoes National Park
The centerpiece of the park, Kilauea, has been active as recently as 2018, and visitors should be aware that parts of the park are closed during times of seismic activity that could pose a threat. Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, Volcanoes National Park offers a unique, up-close look at an active volcanic system where lava oozes from cracks in the earth. The surrounding landscape is shaped by cooled lava rocks, old and new, which flowed down the roads in a display of its unstoppable strength.
Timings: The visitor center is opened daily between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.
3. Haleakala National Park
Haleakala National Park provides access to the inactive Haleakala Volcano, which measures over 10,000 feet.

2. Sulphur Springs Park
Mount Soufriere (also known as Sulfur Springs Park) is the most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles. A road crosses the rim of the 274-meter crater, making it one of the few “traversal” volcanoes in the world. Although the last major volcanic eruption in Saint Lucia occurred around 40,000 years ago, this volcanic pit continues to release sulfur into the air and heat pools of water above the boiling point. You can see the bubbling pools and whistling fumaroles from the viewing platforms and bathe in some nearby therapeutic springs.Timings: 6 a. m to 8 p.m.
3. Marigot Bay
Marigot Bay, arguably the most beautiful bay in Saint Lucia, is best viewed from a vantage point on the route between the main Caribbean coastal road and the bay itself. The lush hills plunge down to the pretty palm-fringed beach and the yachts float on the blue waters of the bay. The harbor is so deep and sheltered that the British fleet is said to have hid here from the French by covering their masts with palm leaves.
Timings: open all time
4. The Pitons
the Pitons are the two towering peaks of Saint Lucia and topographical features of the first order. These characteristic peaks rise from the sea to great heights. The Gros Piton (grand piton) to the south is 798 meters high, and the Petit Piton (small piton) is 750 meters high. Formed by volcanic activity around 200,000 to 300,000 years ago, the two Pitons are considered difficult climbs. If you are a diver, you can explore them like underwater cliffs.
