Perancak fishing boats


• If you get to Perancak in the morning, you have a good chance of watching the fish being sorted and off-loaded from the boats

• It gets really hot here towards the middle of the day; you'll probably be more comfortable walking the beach and viewing the boats before mid-morning, or in the late afternoon

Fishing boats at Perancak

There are so many different types of fishing boats around Bali, and the ones that harbour at Perancak are probably the most spectacular on the island. The boats operate in pairs, and so you will always see two boats – decorated almost exactly the same – moored together.


Sea and fishing conditions determine when the boats will be out, so it is likely that only a handful will be in the harbour – the wide river mouth – when you visit. Even so, it's well worth a visit.


There are two simple restaurants (with clean bathrooms) at the river mouth.
