Bali & Lombok - North Bali (PDF Chapter)
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
- explore underwater marvels while staying at the idyllic beach town of Pemuteran
- 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.
