Feel the sensation of swimming with dolphin in wild life
Lovina Beach is a collection of tiny beaches that stretch between two districts in the Buleleng region of North Bali. The beach is a good alternative to the south Bali beaches of Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak, which are quite popular (and often congested). This area of the North Bali coast is known for its calmer waves, quiet black-sand beaches, and vibrant nightlife.
Lovina Beach stretches for two kilometers from east to west, with a small section in Kalibukbuk Village serving as its focal point. Sunsets are a big draw here, and there's a quiet nightlife after dark. The beach is bordered by a big parking lot, with rows of cafés and trendy seafood restaurants nearby. The official landmark of Lovina is a towering dolphin monument near the sand. An airy boardwalk lined with art boutiques and traditional food booths may be found to the east.
Highlights of Lovina Beach
Sunrises on Lovina Beach are as 'gently stimulating' as sunsets, and it's when tour groups board colorful jukung (traditional motorised outriggers) to see the various species that live just off the coast. Keep your camera ready because these flippers break the water's smooth surface in the blink of an eye. The dark-skinned spinner dolphins, which are present all year save during the Chinese Lunar New Year season, when rains are severe and irregular, are the most frequently seen (from February to April).
Lovina Beach has a lot to offer.
Many hotels dot the landscape, with several magnificent units placed high on the hillsides, providing a different perspective on the gorgeous harbor and its crimson sunsets. The Banjar Hot Springs and the Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist temple are two must-see attractions near Lovina Beach. The hot springs are a popular weekend getaway for both locals and visitors, with pools to wade in and dragon water spouts to relax under. The Brahma Vihara Arama is the island's main Buddhist temple, with the small but spectacular Borobudur Temple perched atop its peak.
