Bali might be known as Indonesia’s party island, but not all of its beaches have that notorious wild vibe. At Lovina Beach in north-western Bali, you’ll find a much more laidback atmosphere where people can lay back and enjoy the feeling of sand in their toes and sun on their skin instead. It’s quieter than most tourist hotspots, but that is exactly Lovina Beach’s charm. The exquisite beach consists of seven small villages like Pemaron, Anturan, Kalibukbuk (the liveliest village of the lot), Temukus, and Kaliasem along its 10 kilometre stretch. Instead of Bali’s usual white sand beaches, you’re treated here to narrow, black sand beaches which have calm waters ideal for swimming and relaxing in the waves.
Lovina Beach is most popular for dolphin watching, snorkelling, and enjoying the calm of traditional Indonesian life. Dolphin sightings are an everyday affair, and you’ll certainly find yourself encouraged by everyone from shopkeepers to hotel staff, to give it a shot. Lovina Beach has its options of bars and cafes for the partying lot, but for the most part, it’s a great little nook to spend time with friends, family, and loved ones in a quiet getaway.
