Bali is an island in southern Indonesia located between the islands of Java and Lombok. It is one of the small Sunda Islands. It has an area of 5,637 km2. The population of all the islands of the province of Bali was 3,890,000 inhabitants in 2010, ie a density of 690 inhabitants / km2. Administratively, the island is part of the province of the same name and hosts its capital (ibu kota), Denpasar, in the south of the island.
Bali’s history covers a period spanning from the Paleolithic to the present day. It is necessarily linked to that of the neighboring islands and more generally of the Indonesian archipelago. In particular, Bali has a common history with East Java at least from the eleventh century, with the advent of King Airlangga whose father, Prince Udayana, was Balinese, until 1770, when the last Prince of Blambangan, vassal of the Balinese kings, converted to Islam under pressure from the Dutch VOC, who wanted to remove East Java from Balinese influence
The island of Bali is located in the Bali Sea, 2.3 km east of Java, 36 km west of Lombok and approximately 8 degrees south of Ecuador. Bali and Java are separated by the Bali Strait. From east to west, the island is approximately 153 km in length. It stretches about 112 km from north to south. It has an area of 5,637 km2.
The mountain range of central Bali includes several peaks over 2000 meters above sea level. The highest is the Agung (3,142 m), an active volcano called the “mother mountain”. The chain rises from the center to the east, with the dominant Agung in the far east. The volcanic nature of Bali contributes to its exceptional fertility and its high mountain ranges cause heavy rainfall favoring the high production of the agricultural sector. The vast area descending from the south side of the mountains is devoted to the cultivation of rice. The slopes on the north side descend more steeply towards the sea. It is the main coffee production area of the island where vegetables and livestock are also found. The longest river, the Ayung River, flows for approximately 75 km. Bali does not have major waterways. The Ho River is however taken by small sampans.
The island is surrounded by coral reefs. The southern beaches are white sand while those to the north and east are black sand. The black sand beaches between Pasut and Klatingdukuh have been developed for tourism but apart from those near the Tanah Lot temple, they are not yet in significant use.
The largest city on the island is the provincial capital Denpasar located near the south coast. Its population was around 491,500 in 2002, but it has almost doubled in 15 years (2017) .
The second largest city in Bali is the former colonial capital Singaraja, on the north coast, with a population of around 100,000. The other major cities are the resort town of Kuta, practically in the urban area of Denpasar, and Ubud, north of Denpasar, known as the cultural center of the island.
Three small nearby islands located in the southeast are administratively part of the Kabupaten of Klungkung: Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. They are separated from Bali by the Badung Strait.
To the east, the Lombok Strait separates Bali from Lombok and marks the biogeographical divide between the fauna of the Indomalayan ecozone and the distinctly different fauna of Australasia. The transition is known as the Wallace Line, named after Alfred Russel Wallace who first proposed a transition zone between these two major biomes. When the sea level fell during the Pleistocene Ice Age, Bali was connected with Java and Sumatra and the mainland of Asia, thus welcoming Asian fauna, but the deep waters of the Lombok Strait continued to maintain Lombok and the isolated Sunda Islands.
