BOOK A HOTEL IN PEMUTERAN
Diving and snorkelling, and more diving and more snorkelling, with some beach time thrown in. Welcome to Pemuteran, a charming little village that's spread between quiet lanes in the northwest of Bali.
Thanks to its proximity to Menjangan Island and its own offshore reefs, the town of Pemuteran has emerged as Bali’s premier dive centre. Nevertheless,
it remains idyllically peaceful in a way that few places farther east Bali have managed.
This northern coast is more arid than the south and the cactus-spiked lowlands give way here and there to vineyards. Sunset can be spectacular here with a natural evening lazer-show that highlights the volcanoes of nearby Java.
Pemuteran and nearby Lovina (known for its dolphin watching) are becoming more popular as wonderful rainy season holiday bases but are loved year round by visitors who are looking for a more peaceful Balinese beach backdrop.
