Pemuteran Beach

Pemuteran is a small fishing village on the northern coast of West Bali.

Contents

Understand

This is a small laid-back village which has become increasingly popular with visitors in recent years. There are a number of waterfront resorts and its proximity to Lovina and West Bali National Park together with the extreme natural beauty of the area, has fuelled quite rapid growth in tourism infrastructure in the area.

Pemuteran is home to the largest artificial Biorock reef project in the world[1] and there is a real spirit of marine conservation effort in this area.


A very informative website http://www.pemuteranbay.com/ about things to do in the Pemuteran bay area and around, it will also give you information on where to stay,you can find an overview of the Villas, Resorts and Homestays in Pemuteran. Diving and snorkeling options.

Get in

Visitors usually arrive in Pemuteran on the north coast road from Lovina or Singaraja or from the west at Gilimanuk.

Regular bemos ply the north coast road but they are very slow and get extremely crowded.

You will have no problem renting a car with driver to take you from Lovina to Pemuteran - fix the price in advance and make sure petrol is included.

A direct ride to Pemuteran from tourist centres in the south will take about four hours depending on traffic on the coast roads.

Get around

This is a great place to walk or get around by bicycle.

Your hotel will be able to help if you decide you need to rent a motorbike.

See

Early morning dolphin watching boat trips can be arranged through any hotel. By no means guaranteed, but you have a decent chance of finding a pod here.

The beaches are especially nice in this area and consist of a particularly fine grained black sand.

Menjangan Island and West Bali National Park are easily reached from here. The Menjangan Island boats depart from Labuhan Lalang which is a 15 minute ride west from Pemuteran. Obligatory permits can be purchased from the national park office at the back of the Labuhan Lalang car park and you can also arrange a guide here. It is quite common for groups of visitors to congregate in this car park and join together to charter a boat. Most local hotels will make any arrangements you need for activities related to the national park.

Proyek Penyu [2] (turtle project) is a turtle breeding and release program run by one of the dive operators in co-operation with local villagers. Very much worth a visit and certainly worth your support.

The area around Pulaki village just east of Pemuteran is full of vineyards and is the centre of the grape growing industry in Bali.
