Indonesia’s drone laws are pretty relaxed and sensible, so Bali drone photography opens up a world of possibilities.
This is the perfect way to take pictures of Bali’s cliffs, waterfalls, rice terraces, volcanoes, and other natural scenery. The locals are relaxed and don’t mind it at all as long as you’re considerate.
Try to be respectful, of course, and don’t fly inside temples, near airports, or around crowds. As long as you follow these basic rules, you can take some top-notch Bali drone pics and videos.
Nusa Penida drone photos can be especially amazing because of famous places like Broken Beach, Diamond Beach, and the Kelingking T-Rex cliff.
Check out some of these aerial Bali images I’ve taken over the last few years! You can read more about my camera gear here.
