Bali is one of the 33 provinces of Indonesia, the largest archipelagic country in the world where the plants, mammals and marine life are simply stunning. A yacht charter in Bali will take you through to a paradise of jasmine, water lilies, frangipani and a variety of orchids abound in the temple grounds. Monkeys, civets and mouse deer thrive. 300 species of birds occupy the island. You’ll find dolphin, sunfish and colorful coral fish. The existence of these flora and fauna are necessary for Balinese life, where ceremonies and rituals flourish.
