Location - North Bali

Diverse and spectacular nature, unique and traditional culture

For decades the tropical island of Bali has been a popular holiday destination.

The statistics show that Northern Bali seems to be popular to Western Europeans in particular, of whom the Dutch, German and English form the larger parts.

The traditional and rural atmosphere of Northern Bali and the absence of mass tourism (with the result of no traffic jams and less pollution than in Southern Bali) makes the North extremely attractive to those who prefer to live in peace and quiet close to or amidst nature while still within easy reach of the airport, the shopping malls and the hustle 'n bustle of the South (averagely 90km / 2.5 hrs by car via good roads).

Although there is no mass tourism (yet), North Bali still has an infrastructure of good national and international restaurants, bars and cafés, a wide range of hotels varying from backpacker home-stays to luxury five star villa resorts, Spas, supermarkets, bakeries, western-oriented doctors, hospitals with 24hr drugstores, western schools, banks, ATM's, internet providers and plenty of opportunity for sports, activities and leisure.

In North Bali you will also find two Rotary Clubs.

Lovina (or rather Lovina Beach) is the name for a strip of beaches with a total length of approximately 12 km, centrally located on the north coast of Bali just west of Singaraja and within easy reach of most of Bali's natural and cultural attractions.

The beaches of Lovina belong to the fishermen's villages of Pemaron, Tukadmungga, Anturan, Kalibukbuk, Kaliasem and Temukus. Lovina offers a wide choice of accommodation, ranging from backpacker homestays to boutique hotels and to private villas, with a growing number of restaurants with national and international cuisines.

In Lovina there are several diving centers. These not only offer you the opportunity to dive in Lovina, but also make excursions to distant dive sites such as Pulau Menjangan. Around the island are the most beautiful reefs of Bali.  The excursion to dive the wreck of the USS Liberty, just off the coast of Tulanben, is also recommended for the true diving enthusiast. 

You can rent a bus or taxi for a trip to the many waterfalls, the temple Bratan, and Hot Springs (Air Panas). These are healing hot springs within 10 km from Lovina.


Lovina is a famous seaside resort in North Bali, close to your villa. An oasis of calm, especially when you compare it to some of the overcrowded places in the island’s south. The North Balinese landscape and people have their own special charm, especially if you are sensitive to the beauty of nature. 

Close to the coast is a beautiful coral reef where you can snorkel, but Lovina is mostly famous as the gateway to waters populated by many frolicking dolphins. You can rise at 6am, to ride in a small dugout praha (canoe), but the rewards can be great, witnessing natural ‘dancing dolphins’ with the backdrop of a beautiful sunrise over the mountains of the hinterland. You can also ride the praha along the coast and have lunch at a restaurant. Some captains may also offer sailing excursions.

If you like fishing, you can try a little further offshore, on a bigger boat, to go for tuna.

Lovina and its surroundings have many craft and art shops, a wide variety of restaurants and bars for people who look for some fun later on. Several of the existing clubs and cafes provide live music entertainment.

Perhaps you are more interested in the cultural heritage of the local Balinese people and their Hindu faith. We can take you to a funeral, maybe a wedding, a temple ceremony, or even the home of a typical Balinese family.

You can also rent bicycles. Cycling along the Lovina coast has become very popular in the last year, allowing a close up view of the many sights to see while also providing healthy exercise.


Singaraja. The former capital of Bali during the reign of the Dutch, is well worth a visit just 10 km east of Lovina. It is a town of cheerful chaos, with many small shops and a large attractive market. Then there are the chic suburbs with beautiful (Dutch) colonial homes, wide streets and pompous government buildings. Singaraja now has even a Carrefour (French department store).

Gitgit. There are few visitors to North Bali who skip these beautiful waterfalls, just 10 kilometres from Singaraja. Along the way there is a traditional silver-smithing village.

Bedugul. A beautiful mountain area with scenic volcanic lakes and three major temples, Bedugul is situated about 1000m above sea level and is quite cool in the mornings and evenings. There is a botanical ornamental garden and a superb fresh vegetable market, because this is where cauliflowers, tomatoes, strawberries, beans, carrots and avocados flourish. It is about one hour's drive from Lovina, but only a half hour from Gitgit.

Handara Golf Club. A must for the golf enthusiast. A breathtaking track, which leads to one of the five most beautiful courses in Asia, in the crater of an extinct volcano close to Bedugul. The temperature is always nice for play, although the morning can sometimes be quite chilly.

Sambangan. An idyllic spot for nature lovers. Beautiful waterfalls in the hills where plantations grow coffee, cocoa, and cloves. There are walks of various lengths available, led by a guide. This is an almost undiscovered area, a must for eco-tourists.

Banjar Air Panas. Drive west from Lovina and you will pass the North Bali vineyards and then go to the mineral springs of Banjar for a beautiful, purifying hot natural bath. A little further on is a famous and very interesting Buddhist temple.

Munduk. The town of Seririt is the start of a beautiful journey: the Munduk route. This takes you past beautiful rice fields, scenic views, lovely villages and pleasant restaurants. The delicious smell of coffee and cloves fills the air.

Menjangan. If you love a bit of diving and snorkeling, here is an ideal place. Menjangan is a small island in the western part of Bali with a beautiful reef. Just half an hour by boat from the mainland to the mountains of Java, close at hand. Experienced diving instructors are available. On your way there you pass the imposing Temple Pulaki and can also visit pearl farms.
