Tripadvisor Trips around Lovina

Near the northern tip of the island of Bali lies a stretch of villages by the Bali Sea. Lovina Beach is the name. Lovina is really a string of coastal villages to the west of Singaraja. Escape from the hustle and bustle of Kuta to Lovina Beach located in north Bali, about 100 kilometers from southern tourist hotspots. It is well known as an excellent site for sunset watching, snorkeling, and diving. Darkly beautiful, Lovina offers quiet and calm, and is popular Asian tourists and those avoiding the hustle and bustle of the southern beaches. A number of coves offer tranquil, protected waters and Lovina is one of them. Although the sand is grey, it is quiet and peaceful, and popular among those who shun the glitzier beach resorts of the south. It is a popular place for dolphin watching; dolphins play in the water off Lovina. Famous for its early morning dolphin-watching boat trips, Lovina also offers good snorkeling and diving, and trekking in the nearby mountains. Diving off Menjangan Island, part of the Bali Barat National Park, is generally regarded as the best in Bali. Boats are readily available to take divers over to the island, where there are no residents or hotels.

Nightlife activities are also abound, as well as chartered boats to go out into the sea. If we like what Kuta offers but do not like the crowd. With a wonderful variety of hotels, restaurants and bars located on or very near the calm beach, Lovina offers something for everyone. It is also a good base to take day trips to the nearby attractions of north and west Bali.

Lovina (or rather Lovina Beach) is the name for a stip of beaches with a total length of approximately 12 km, centrally located at the north coast of Bali just west of Singaraja and within easy reach of most of Bali's natural and cultural attractions. The beaches of Lovina belong to the fisherman's villages of Pemaron, Tukadmungga, Anturan, Kalibukbuk, Kaliasem and Temukus. Lovina offers a wide choice of accommodation, ranging from backpacker homestays to boutique hotels to private villas, with a growing number of restaurants with national and international cuisines.

The beaches of Lovina are characterized by its rural nature and its unique, dark colored sand which is of volcanic origin. The childfriendly, shallow water of Lovina's reef protected beaches is free of dangerous undercurrents and is of an agreeable warm temperature throughout the year, which makes it very suitable for unconcerned family holidays with safe swimming and snorkeling.

Central Lovina, Kalibukbuk - The beach area of the village of Kalibukbuk is general regarded as the 'center' of Lovina as it was here that the first accommodations were built. Traditionally, you will therefore find the highest concentration of restaurants and bars in this area, in particular the area of Jalan Binaria (Dolphin Street), Jalan Pantai (a boulevard) and Jalan Rambutan.

The very first accommodation, a losmen with a restaurant named Lovina, was built in 1953 by the last Raja of Buleleng, Anak Agung Pandji Tisna. This accommodation was located just west of Kalibukbuk near the outlet of a small river at the beach of Kampung Baru of the village of Tukad Cebol, which name was later changed into Kaliasem. Nowadays this losmen does not exist anymore, but it used to be located in the area where now Villa Swara Segara stands (just west of Sea Breeze restaurant).

Located at the end of Jalan Binaria in Kalibukbuk, and landmarked by a Dolphin Statue at Binaria Square, Binaria Beach is one of the most popular beaches to watch Lovina's famous, romantic sunsets. The best spots to watch the sun set, apart from the beach itself, are Sea Breeze restaurant (located west of the Dolphin Statue) and Santhi Bar (located east of the Dolphin Statue ). A beachside boulevard runs through a treed area and connects Binaria Beach via Binaria Square with Jalan Rambutan and Rambutan Beach.

Food stalls at Binaria - Every day as from ca. 4 pm several kaki lima(foodstalls) can be found along the edges of Binaria Square selling food and drinks. These foodstalls stay open until late at night and are frequented by both local people and westerners. The food that is sold is good and ranges from gado-gado, lumpia's and satays to bakso and nasi campur to fruits, cakes and sweets. Drinks: cool Bintang beers, lemonades, tea, coffee, mixed iced fruit and local sweet drinks. Food prices here range from Rp. 4000 - 8000 per portion.

Seririt is a 'sleepy' old market town and the former commercial center of Buleleng, located about 16 km west of Singaraja near the villages of Banjar and Dencarik at the north coast of Bali. Seririt lies at a T-junction with Pemuteran and Gilimanuk to the west, Lovina/Singaraja to the east and Pupuan/Tabanan to the south. Seririt is the third town of Bali. Although an earthquake in 1976 destroyed many of its buildings, the Dutch colonial past of Seririt is still apparent by the architecture of the buildings that survived the quake.

The popular night market of Seririt is located in the center of the town. During the day time Seririt is a sleepy little town but during the nightly hours this rural town comes to live when hundreds of mainly local people frequent the busy night market of Seririt. 

According to the local people, the market is during the nightly hours sometimes visited by wong samar, invisible beings that every now and then appear in the physical world as people without an upper lip, clothed in rags. An encounter with a wong samar may result in a gift, which should always be accepted. 

Kalibukbuk is a small village at the north coast of Bali, located ca. 10 km west of Singaraja. Kalibukbuk, originally a farmer's village, is generally regarded as 'central Lovina' as it is here, mainly north of the main road, where you will find the largest concentration of restaurants, hotels, shops and money changers. 

Most of the local people of Kalibukbuk live in traditional kampongs that can be found south of the main road, the Jalan Raya Singaraja-Seririt.

Central Lovina - The beach area of the village of Kalibukbuk is general regarded as the 'center' of Lovina as it was here that the first accommodations were built. Traditionally, you will therefore find the highest concentration of restaurants and bars in this area, in particular along the Jalan Binaria (Dolphin Street), Jalan Pantai (a boulevard) and Jalan Rambutan. 

Restaurants of Kalibukbuk - You will find a range of good, western-oriented restaurants with national and international cuisines in Kalibukbuk. To mention just a few, there are Warung Aria, Kakatoa, Café Lumbung, Jasmine Kitchen, Bali Apik, Tropis restaurant and bistro, Waru Bali, Astina restaurant, The Duke, Warung Made, Barclona, La Madre and Barakuda. 

Nightlife of Kalibukbuk is found mainly along the Jalan Binaria and the T-junction of the Jalan Binaria with the main road, Jl. Raya Singaraja-Seririt. There are several bar-disco's in this area, among others the 'icons of nightlife' Poco Bar, Zigi's and Kantin 21. Other places to go are Pasha nightclub, VIP Bar, Café Lumbung, Small Bar and, more traditionally, the night warungs of Binaria square. 

Binaria Square is located at the end of Jalan Binaria in Kalibukbuk and is landmarked by a Dolphin Statue. You will find some souvenir shops, restaurants and warungs here. Binaria Square is a popular meeting place for local people and, traditionally, a 'must-see' for tourists. Every day as from ca. 4 pm several kaki lima(foodstalls) can be found along the edges of Binaria Square selling food and drinks. These foodstalls stay open until late at night and are frequented by both local people and westerners. The food that is sold here is good and ranges from gado-gado, lumpia's and satays to bakso and nasi campur to fruits, cakes and sweets. Drinks: cool Bintang beers, lemonades, tea, coffee, mixed iced fruit and sweet local drinks. Food prices here range from Rp. 4000 - 8000 per portion. 

The beaches of Kalibukbuk still breath a rural atmosphere. The beaches are largely rimmed with palm trees and rice fields, with here and there traditional small, grass-roofed warungs under the trees that border the beach. It is not unusual to encounter chicken at the more quiet parts of the beaches. The sand of the beaches is of a unique, dark color because it is of volcanic origin. Due to the coral reefs the water of the sea is shallow and free of dangerous undercurrents. The water is of an agreeable warm temperature throughout the year, which makes this part of the Bali sea extremely suitable for unconcerned family holidays with safe swimming and snorkeling. There are four main beaches, Binaria Beach, Rambutan Beach, Kartika Beach and Banyualit Beach.



Binaria Beach is located at the end of Jalan Binaria, the center of Kalibukbuk's nightlife. Binaria Beach is one of the most popular beaches to watch Lovina's famous, romantic sunsets. The best spots to watch the sun set, apart from the beach itself, are Sea Breeze restaurant (west of the Dolphin Statue) and Santhi Bar (east of the Dolphin Statue).

A beachside boulevard runs through a treed area and connects Binaria Beach from Binaria Square with Jalan Rambutan and Rambutan Beach.
