Getting to the Butterfly Park in Tabanan

Located in the central part of the island, this attraction is in Wanasari Village in Tabanan; private pool villa options at properties in the Tanah Lot region such as Nirjhara make an ideal base to visit this site. Those staying in the capital, Denpasar, will find it around 30 km away, while it’s approximately 60 minutes from Ubud.

What to Expect Here

The Bali Butterfly Park in Tabanan features tropical gardens and informative tours that give visitors a chance to see a diverse array of butterflies including species that can be found in Indonesia. A key highlight here is that one can also view the different stages of the butterfly life cycle from the egg to the metamorphosis with the emergence of a winged beauty from the cocoon. Kids are bound to love getting to hold certain creepy crawlies like Goliath beetles too!

Getting to the Butterfly Park in Kemenuh

The village of Kemenuh is in Gianyar which is only around a 30-minute drive from destinations like Ubud. The seaside town of Sanur is approximately 45 minutes away, while you can look to combine your trip with a tour of the Sukawati area and a visit to the Tegenungan Waterfall.

What to Expect Here

Those heading to the Kemenuh Butterfly Park will find garden enclosures with flowers that provide the perfect picturesque setting for hundreds of butterflies of diverse species. The enclosures feature netted canopies giving you the freedom to walk around and see these colourful winged insects. Don’t miss spotting species such as Papilio Peranthus as well as Attacus Atlas (or the Atlas moth), the largest moth on the planet!
