Condotels and Apartments ban
Although Badung Regency, Denpasar and Gianyar Regency are the three richest regions in Bali and most of their wealth comes from tourism, in February 2012 Gianyar Regency officially banned the construction of new increasingly popular condominium hotels (condotels) and apartment facilities. Unlike the Badung Regency and Denpasar where condotels and apartments remain in high demand for tourist developers and investors, Gianyar Regency wants to protect local entrepreneurs.

Black sandy beach in Keramas Beach, Blahbatuh district has hosted international surfing competitions in the last couple of years with limited facilities such as uneven road and no parking lots. On June 18–29, 2013, Keramas Beach was on the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP)'s 2013 Men's World Champhionship Tour schedule as the Oakley Bali Pro.
In football, Bali is home to the football club Bali United, which plays in the Liga 1. The team was relocated from Samarinda, East Kalimantan to Gianyar, Bali. Harbiansyah Hanafiah, the main commissioner of Bali United explained that he did the name change and moved the homebase to Bali because there were no representative from Bali in the highest football tier in Indonesia. Another reason was due to local fans in Samarinda prefer to support Pusamania Borneo F.C. more than Persisam.
