Explore & Discover

Lovina Beach is a 12 km stretch of coast to the North West of Singaraja in North Bali. It is several resorts rather than one. It is comprised of several narrow stretches of black volcanic sand. Lovina, like most of Bali, fills up with tourists from all over the world in August and Australians at Chrismass. Lovina is a nice break from the bustle of the South. These days the mix of tourists is mainly families and couples rather than the backpackers of yesteryear.

Joining Wondrous Dolphins at Their Home

Dolphin Watching Tours

Most hotels in Lovina can arrange for dolphin watching tours through their concierge, in collaboration with the local fishermen who also provide their outriggers for such rides. Ticket prices vary and mostly depend on the number of participants per trip (to cover fuel expenses, and sometimes chum or regular fish food).

A motorised outrigger can seat up to 5 or 6 passengers.A typical morning at the coast starts before sunrise – you’ll have to get up early as the guys are usually on-time, waiting on shore with their boats. After donning life vests, you board and head out into the bay. The boats can often get you out within minutes. At sea, the engines are stopped and the waiting game begins. At times, you can see breaching dolphins right after your boat reaches the open waters.

A Majestic Presentation of Bali’s Culture

Brahma Vihara Arama

Brahmavihara-Arama is Bali’s largest Buddhist monastery, located up in the hills of Banjar, only 1.5 km west of the Banjar Hot Springs. Opened in 1970, the monastery covers a hectare of hillside, with numerous meditation rooms, libraries, beautiful gardens, and an impressive mini replica of the world's largest Buddhist archaeological site, Borobudur.

The monastery is about 10 km from the major beach resort of Lovina. Up from the Jalan Raya Seririt-Singaraja main road is a quaint street lined with Alphonse Lavallée vineyards that provide a scenic intro to this uphill attraction. After a few minutes, the community of Dusun Abian comes to view, and clear signposts show you directions to the famous hot springs and to the monastery.

One of Bali’s Best and Must Visit Beaches

Lovina Beach

Lovina Beach is a combination of smaller beaches traversing several local villages between 2 districts in the North Bali regency of Buleleng. The beach is a nice alternative to the highly popular (and often crowded) beaches of Bali's south, such as Kuta, Legian and Seminyak. Calmer waves, serene black-sand shores and a nightlife scene are just a few things that sum up this stretch of the North Bali coast.

Lovina Beach spans 2 km from east to west, with a small area in Kalibukbuk Village as its main focal point. Sunsets are quite the highlight here, with a rather subdued nightlife after dusk. A large parking space borders the beach, with rows of cafés and trendy seafood restaurants nearby. Near the sand, a towering statue of a dolphin stands as Lovina's official landmark. Head east and you'll find an airy boardwalk lined with art shops and traditional food stalls.

A Whole Day of Fun for Everyone

Krisna Watersports Temukus

For a whole range of water sports to enjoy while in the bay of Temukus (only 5 minutes from the main strip of Lovina Beach), head down to Krisna Watersports – the largest and latest activity centre of its kind in North Bali.

You can take the family for whacky inflatable rides, from the common banana boats to new takes such as ‘butterfly dolphins’, ‘jet plane’, and ‘crazy sofa’ that are towed behind a speedboat. Available tours also include ATV rides and speed boat tours.

A Natural Wonder Waiting to be Discovered

Gitgit Waterfall

Gitgit Waterfall is one of Bali’s most popular waterfalls, easily accessible from the main road connecting Bedugul and Singaraja. The waterfall is usually included as a highlight of trekking adventures and as a sightseeing stopover on tours to Lovina Beach and the island’s northern region.

Gitgit waterfall also provides a relatively easy trek, with a wooden boardwalk over a small gorge and cool streams. You can reach it on a 10-km drive south from North Bali’s main town of Singaraja, or on an 80-km drive north from Kuta.
