Things to do around Negara

Enjoy the drive

The early morning is a beautiful time to be driving the road between Medewi and Negara: in so many places it's flanked by rice paddies, and the forested hills of West Bali National Park are in the distance. Look out for farmers using buffaloes to plough the paddies – very picturesque! 

Head to the races

Mekopung, or buffalo chariot races, are very popular Sunday events, particularly around July and August. Expect decorated buffaloes, bright chariots, and lots of blood, sweat and dust.

Snap colourful boats

The fishing boats at Perancak are spectacular and unlike any others you'll see around the island. Take a drive out this way, stop for lunch at one of the simple restaurants at the river mouth, and go boat-spotting.
