- ABOUT THE SPOT
Paragliding in Bali Cliffs, Bali, Bali Indonesia
There is no feeling like when flying. Soar along the shores of the Indian Ocean at the Bali Cliffs in Timbis Beach and experience an exciting and fun filled paragliding experience. The take off site which is a nice and big launch spot lies on the top of the cliff which has a slopped top area. During the months of May through to October, the southerly trade winds blow in off the Indian Ocean allowing for a 12 km/7.4 mi of thrilling ridge, ranging anything from 100-1000 ft/30.4-304 m above sea level.
Enjoy magnificent views of the Indian Ocean and turquoise lagoons by either tandem paragliding or going on solo. The landing site is the spacious beach area at Timbis and allows for both land and top easy landing. Paragliding here is open to both the novice and expert para-glider pilot. Flights last anything from 20-30 minutes.
Some of the hazards to watch-out for include when winds are blowing between SSE to SE you need to check your return flight as landing might be impossible. When it is only the SE blowing, again you need to take precaution when returning due to the rotor coming from the ridge points from Ungals end.
