The island of Bali is a single shimmering star in the Asia archipelago that consists of over 16,000 islands. Bali is not the biggest island, it’s only 90 miles from east to west, but it is definitely the brightest when it comes to being a fabulous place for Divas to visit. Its tiny size means you can hike an active volcano, lounge on a black sand beach, trek through a luscious rainforest, and be back at the hotel for lychee martinis by sunset.
