Bali & Lombok - North Bali (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the North Bali chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bali & Lombok guidebook.

The big draw here is the incredible diving and snorkelling at nearby Pulau Menjangan. Arc-ing around a nearby bay, booming Pemuteran may be Bali’s best beach escape. To the east is Lovina, a sleepy beach strip.

When to Go

Most of north Bali doesn’t have a high season in terms of visitors.

The exceptions are Pemuteran, which is busy July, August and around Christmas and New Year; as are the diving and snorkelling sites around Menjangan, which can get overcrowded with schools of swimming visitors.

Weather-wise north Bali is drier than the south. Days of perpetual sun are the norm year-round (most visitors get accommodation with air-con). The only real variation is when you venture back into the hills; mornings can be cool.

  • plunge into the depths at Pulau Menjangan, Bali’s best dive spot, or enjoy the show while snorkelling; all before discovering Bali’s oldest temple on the namesake island
  • maps
  • explore underwater marvels while staying at the idyllic beach town of Pemuteran
  • transport
  • lose track of time, but not of your budget, at the laid-back, beachside town of Lovina
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Yeh Sanih, Singaraja & Around, Lovina & Around, Seririt & Around, Pemuteran, Banyuwedang, Labuhan Lalang, Bali Barat National Park.
