Bali Beaches
The lure of the beaches is one of the main reasons tourists come to Bali. ¤ And why not?¤ Bali has some great beaches, surrounded by palm trees, white sand and a cool breeze, a great way to spend your holiday. In the next few weeks we will give you a run down on the beaches one by one.

Safety on the Beaches.
Check your travel insurance does it cover water sports?
Bali's beaches have strong 'rips'. Only swim between the lifesavers' flags.
Don't swim in the sea at night or when the beach is unpatrolled.
Jet-ski' accidents are common. Be careful. Use speeds at which you can control!
Don't 'para-sail' with cheap, unlicensed amateurs.¤Make sure the¤ company you use is insured.
