Things to do around Pemuteran

Things to do in Pemuteran.jpg

Pemuteran is known as a destination for good diving and snorkelling, but it's also an excellent place to come if you're interested in yoga, walking, visiting intriguing temples – and it's a great village for foodies, too. Take a look at what you can do here:

Dive

the chain of reefs around Pemuteran. There is plenty to see (and – bonus – prices are relatively low), and the exquisite sites around Menjangan Island are close by, too.

Yoga

classes are held at 7.30am every day at Sumberkima Hill, a 10-minute drive from Pemuteran. Stay for a smoothie bowl or healthy breakfast at the retreat's restaurant after class.

Walk

up Bukit Kursi and look out across all of Pemuteran – a fun way to put the village into perspective and piece together the puzzle of its geography.

Snorkel

from the beach in Pemuteran, or take a boat to one of the off-shore sites. You can rent snorkelling gear by the day from many places around the village.

Kayak

the mangrove-fringed Bay of Sumberkima, close to Pemuteran. Metaformosa, an NGO that operates in the area, runs kayakinging trips here.

Taste

wine and take a walk through one of the many small vineyards where grapes are grown for Bali's Hatten Wine. 

Explore

West Bali National Park, where you might see macaque monkeys, menjangan deer and the relatives of your chicken burger, green jungle fowl. You can go trekking, biking and snorkelling in the park.

Shop

for some of the most delicious – and unusual – artisanal salt made on the island. The small "factory" is nearby and well worth a visit, too. Flavours of salt include tumeric, rosella, charcoal and smoked salt.

Brahma Vihara Arama

is a tranquil Buddhist temple on the north coast of Bali, about an hour's drive east of Pemuteran. It's often called "mini Borobudur", and is a pretty place to spend an hour or so.

Relax

on the peaceful beach that wraps around Pemuteran's wide bay. It's fringed with shade-giving trees, and so you can comfortably spend all day here. Some of the beachfront hotels rent out sun loungers.
