Bali Districts

  • North Bali
    This is definitely not the first choice of the tour guides or agents in Bali. Afterall most of the crowds prefer staying at the south side. However, the north side of Bali is absolutely the perfect hideout. It stretches all the way from Singaraja to Pemuteran, and includes the Buleleng district as well the well-loved Lovina beach on the north coast. Here is where some of Bali’s most beautiful beaches, hidden villages, mountain lakes and most intimate social and night life are.

    More off the beaten path in north Bali is Lovina, with its quiet beaches of black volcanic sand and beautiful sunsets. There are great snorkeling and diving opportunities around Lovina and you can also take a pre-dawn boat and go dolphin watching. Read more on our Bali Beaches Section.
