Bali swings have become more and more popular attractions in recent times and are considered one of the best activities to do in Bali. One of the most adventurous activities in Bali, swings are not for the faint of heart as they are located at over 25 feet above the ground. All the swings launch over epic scenery, be it a rice field or a waterfall, making them a photographer’s dream. One of the most famous swings is the Alas Harum swing, where you can enjoy an incredible view and many other outdoor activities. The Blangsinga Waterfall Swing is another place that provides one of the most beautiful views overlooking a waterfall.

The natural Bali swing receives tourists coming over from worldwide and has nine swings to choose from, including single and couple swings. If you are looking for something affordable, you can head over to the terrace river pool swing, which has three options with a beautiful view and a giant bird’s nest amazing to click some beautiful pictures.

Almost all swing parks now have a plethora of bird nests for you to climb into and get some of the most unusual and beautiful photos. Riding a Bali swing and getting “the photo” in a bird’s nest is now almost a must if you visit Bali. The nests have become so popular that they pop up all over Bail, even at places like The Gates Of Heaven Bali At Lempuyang Temple. There’s one right down the street from the temple!

Given that there are so many choices, how do you pick the right one? In this guide, we will share the most famous ones and share with you the tips and tricks you need to decide which ones to visit.

What You Need To Know About Bali Swings

First of all, you need to pick a suitable swing park. This can be overwhelming because there are so many. Before you decide on a park, think about your ultimate goal. Is it the Bali swing, the bird’s nests, chicken nests, or a Bali swing bed? It might be all, but you need to know what each park offers. Then there’s the location. They are scattered all across Bail from the north to the south. Depending on where you stay, you might want to consider one close by. 

And, I recommend that you combine your visit with another tour. You don’t need a whole day to experience everything a swing park has. Nor do you need an entire day to capture all the photographs you want.  Don’t forget to bring your camera. You need it to get that perfect shot. However, if you forget, there are photographers in all the parks who will take the photos. Some parks will take your pictures with your camera for free; others charge. Some parks also have the option for professional photos where the photographer uses their camera.

Almost everyone in these parks is after the “perfect photograph.”  Everyone’s posing, adjusting, and taking shot after shot. You might have to wait for a little at each location until the person before you get their perfect photograph, but it’s to be expected. And, I can say, hand on my heart, that in a Bali swing park, you will not look like an “Instagram addicted idiot” when you strike your pose and pout. Everyone, young and old, is striking “a pose.” 

The Bali Swing Dress Shot

We have all seen dreamy photos of girls swinging high across a waterfall or a lush green jungle in flowing dresses. While you can bring your clothing, it’s not needed. Almost all parks have dresses or long flowing skirts you can rent.  There are fitting rooms in many swing parks so that you can change. And, if you are obsessed with catching a few different shots, it’s an option. You can rent several different colors and make wardrobe changes. Naturally, if you don’t want to go for the flowing dress shot, you can ride the swings in whatever you are comfortable in.

Bali Nests

Bali bird nests,  chicken nests, and bed nests are over Bali. I don’t think there’s a place you’ll visit that has not mounted a nest. And all nests come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For example, some mimic a hummingbird’s nest. Others are shaped like a love heart. The nest photograph is almost as famous as the Bali swing photograph. Many people choose to do professional shots in the nests. You’ll see everything from proposals to wedding photos and back.  Some nests are mounted on platforms; others are suspended from trees. They are easy to access, and they do create magical photographs.

Bali Jungle Beds – Swing Beds

As these swing parks have evolved, many are adding what’s known as a swing bed or a jungle bed. The concept is the same. Only you swing over the rice fields in a suspended bed.
