Pack your beach bag, bring some snacks, treats, and of course, a collapsible water bowl for your pup and head out to the beach for a day of fun at very low cost! Bali is amazing because it has so many beaches! Big ones, small ones, popular ones, and hidden ones that no one knows about. Explore the island and find a perfect spot where you and your pup can play, relax, and sunbathe all day! Play some water games, such as wave diving or surfing, and soak up the intoxicating scents of the sea. Your pup will surely love the beach and learn to love Bali. Maybe they’ll never want to leave?

Step
1
Wave diving
While on the beach, do some wave diving! Splash around the small waves near the shore and let your pup explore the water and chase after the waves. They will be confused at first, especially if this is their first time at the beach, but they will start loving the foamy waves pretty soon! Keep them by your side at all times though, and don't let them wade in too far.
Step
2
Off the leash
Let your dog off their leash if the beach allows that and allow them to run around in the sand freely! They will surely love the feel of sand on their paws and splashing around in the water, and enjoy their freedom in Bali. Monitor the heat of the sand, though; if the temperature is making the sand hot for your dog's paws, seek out a shady area.
Step
3
Have a snack
Take out the snacks from your beach bag and have yourselves a little picnic on the beach! Munch on some delicious food and make sure to rehydrate often with fresh water to avoid fatigue caused by the sun. Set up an umbrella to rest under and have a relaxing nap together.

Activity description

Indonesia, being a country of many islands, has some breathtaking landscapes you and your pup can explore together. Going on an exciting hike is a wonderful, yet penny-wise way to see something you have never seen before and soak up the scents of nature in this gorgeous country. One of the islands you can explore together is the Padar Island, home to the Komodo National Park! This is the home to Komodo dragons, fascinating animals that remind one of dinosaurs! If you and your pup manage to see one, you will surely remember that for the rest of your lives!

Step
1
Start at the bottom
Start your hike from one of the gorgeous pink sand beaches of the island. From there, take a steady climb to the top of the island’s peak. Be careful and mindful and make sure to go slow, so as to avoid fatigue. Keep an eye on your dog and allow them rest and rehydration in the shade even though you may think they don't need it yet.
Step
2
Steady climb
While climbing up to the top, take a few rest stops, especially if your dog is not strong enough to handle a 3-hour climb to the top. Ease them into this experience and allow them to sniff and explore the surroundings. A snack and a long rest can be taken if needed; you are in no rush today!
Step
3
Oh the view!
Once you reach the top, apart from feeling proud of yourselves, your pup and you can soak up the breathtaking view that surrounds you. The blue water, the green hillsides, and the fascinating beaches will stretch before you, so take some photographs, show your dog the surroundings and just relax for a while.
