Lovina Beach

Six km west of Singaraja, three hours drive from Denpasar, the popular beach resort of Lovina is a long stretch of black sand with crystal-clear water.

It takes about 3 to 5 hours from the Ngurah Rai airport to Lovina beach. You can go straight up from Kuta to Singaraja, passing Bedugul, or might prefer to take a rather longer road through Kintamani, head west and feel the cold breeze at Mount Batur before you arrive at Lovina beach.

Actually, Lovina is a generic term for a whole line of six small villages and palm-fringed beaches. From east to west it includes: Pemaron, Tukadmungga, Anturan, Kalibukbuk, Kaliasem, and Temukus. The strip starts at about six km mark west of Singaraja to about five km past of Kaliasem. Kalibukbuk has the highest concentration of restaurants and accommodations while the fishing villages of Anturan and Temukus are less densely packed and thus quieter.

Here in Anturan, there are more than 20 small cottages and bungalows to choose from. It also has the one and only petrol station along the way. Slightly more developed, note that the bungalows are also more pricy than others. Look carefully though, you just might find one that suits you beyond your dreams.

If you do not want to leave your night life behind this holiday, staying in the Kalibubuk area is a great choice and expect teeming restaurants and bars along the way. Considered as one of the most crowded area at Lovina beach it is similarly filled with services such as dive centers, car rentals, money changers and such. Let’s casually make out to say that this is the ‘Kuta’ of Lovina.

Kaliasem & Temukus
Heading west from Kalibubuk (about 1 km away), you will reach Kaliasem & Temukukus. Kaliasem & Temukus is certainly not going to be as packed as Kalibubuk but yet with still many bungalows to choose from, most facing the beach and at a rather affordable price.

Lovina has a lot to offer. The beach is better than most of the beach in eastern part of Bali with a string of nine hills on the background creates a pretty view to behold. Glass-clear water of this beach and the proximity of the reef to the beach make Lovina a perfect place for snorkeling and diving and also excellence for swimming. Beautiful sunset can be enjoyed simply while walking on the beach. Visitor can also find good trekking paths, temples, and hot sulphur pools in the hills. Lovina is also a convenient base point for day trips to Tulamben, West Bali National Park, Pemuteran, and Menjangan Island. Do not miss the Lovina’s Dolphin Trip where you can breakfast with hundreds of wandering dolphins, just few hundreds meter off the beach.
