Melasti Pilgrimages

Mar 18

Head to the beaches of either Kuta, Sanur or other locations around Bali to find the Melasti processions where pilgrims, accompanied by parasols, banner sand effigies take heirloom possessions to temples for purification. This is a forerunner to Nyepi Day.

 

Nyepi Day

Mar 21  – entire island

Bali’s Hindu New Year’s day is observed with total silence on the island. That means no traffic, shopping, restaurants and no fire may be lit for 24 hours. Local people will not leave their homes on this day so plan ahead by enjoying the purification of no activity and talking, or taking a trip to another island the day before to miss it altogether. The night before and the days following are full of noise and colourful street activities.

 

BaliSpirit Festival

Mar 31 – Apr 5 – throughout the island

South China Morning Post calls this one the “top five yoga festivals in the world”, where you’ll find events that celebrate not just yoga but also dance, music and the arts. Throughout the week-long festival there will be more than 100 health and wellness workshops as well evening concerts, healing arts, and eco markets.
