    Banjar Hot Springs

    Banjar Hot Spring, locally referred to as Air Panas Banjar, is where you can go for a soothing time while in Lovina. It’s approximately 5 km south-west of Lovina Beach and shares the same locality as the landmark Brahmavihara Arama Buddhist monastery. It provides a therapeutic experience, due to the water’s sulphuric content. This can be seen from the yellowish-red sediment on the spouts and pool walls.

    The hot spring complex has 4 main pool sections with a central bathing pool that features a restaurant perched high above its northern side. Beside the restaurant are restrooms, lockers and changing rooms, and a spa and massage facility. A row of souvenir shops lines the route to the hot springs, selling all sorts of souvenir items.

    On the nearby southern hilltop is an impressive mini replica of the world's largest Buddhist archaeological site – Borobudur.

    Buyan and Tamblingan lakes

    Nature lovers and landscape photographers will love the scenic upland views that the central and northern Bali region has to offer, especially its 3 lakes, of which Beratan is the most developed and popular. The other 2 – Buyan and Tamblingan – are protected sites, though you can camp and trek there.

    The main road of the Asah Gobleg village connecting Bali’s north and south runs high past these 2 lakes, allowing for many vantage points for taking photos. Tamblingan has forest trails and a mysterious lakeside temple, while Buyan has dedicated campsites and strawberry farms nearby.

    Dolphin watching tours at Lovina Beach

    Set out on an early morning boat ride to see visiting dolphins in the wild – the highlight attraction that brought Lovina Beach its original fame. Life vests are provided as you board and set out into the bay just before the sun rises in the early morning.

    The boats are all motorised, usually getting you far out within minutes. At sea, the engine is stopped and the waiting game begins. At times, breaching dolphins can be seen immediately, right as your boat reaches the open waters. Ask your hotel in Lovina for possible arrangements or book online to reserve your spot.

    Gedong Kirtya Lontar Museum

    Also known locally as Museum Gedong Kirtya, this old Balinese manuscript repository is a popular stop-off when exploring the main town area of Singaraja.

    It keeps around 1,000s of old Balinese lontar palm-leaf manuscripts in its vast collection, which cover royal chronicles, literature, mythology, history and literary works on religion.

    Gitgit Waterfalls

    Gitgit waterfall is probably Bali’s most popular waterfall that you can reach on a relatively easy trek via a wooden boardwalk over a small gorge and past cool streams. The trek is part of the overall experience as you enter a soothing rainforest accompanied by the sounds of nature and rushing water.

    The falls are a 10-km drive south of North Bali’s main town of Singaraja or an 80-km drive north from Kuta in south Bali. The waterfall is accessible from the main road connecting Bedugul and Singaraja. The 40-metre-tall cascade constantly pours into a rocky pool with a small shrine that ‘guards’ the site. You can enjoy a cool plunge in the rocky pool, and its water flows all year round.

    Krisna Funtastic Land Bali

    Krisna Funtastic Land amusement park is located on Bali’s northern coast in Singaraja. The park offers some 16 amusement rides with varying levels of excitement and is sure to be one of the highlights of your kid’s trip to Bali. It has the quaint feel of a summer fair rather than the thrill of Disneyland, but it does offer a range of rides with varying levels of excitement.

    For the little ones, a classic miniature train and bumper cars provide fun experiences at a gentler pace. For the adrenaline junkies in the family, try the Airborne Shoot or the Flying Cakra. Of course, mum and dad can even jump on and have a ride too! Krisna Funtastic Land is located behind the Krisna Oleh-Oleh souvenir store in Lovina.

    Les Biorock Coral Gardens

    The fishermen’s village of Les in Tejakula, North Bali, faced dire consequences following rampant cyanide fishing. Environmental NGOs then taught the locals about sustainable practices, proper netting techniques and replenishing the damaged coral gardens through biorock technology.

    Visiting divers and snorkelers now may contribute to the local community and conservation efforts through an ‘adopt a coral’ programme or take part in coral-growing dives to the now thriving artificial reefs. The reefs continue to attract schools of tropical fish besides being unique sightseeing features under the waves in their various frame shapes and sunken structures.

    Lovina Beach

    The main coastal attraction of North Bali, Lovina Beach is where most travellers to this region come to enjoy everything from sunbathing, watching a different kind of Bali sunrise or sunset (yes, you get both), as well as setting off in the early mornings for the dolphin-watching tours, which are a big part of what made this area popular.

    The dark grey to black sand beach is a combination of smaller strips spanning several local villages between 2 districts. Here you can enjoy calm waves and a bit of nightlife at the many bars in the Lovina area.

    Pemuteran Bay and reef restorations

    The coastal area of Pemuteran Bay in Bali’s northwest is not only a premier diving site, but home to a renowned biorock project, overseen by the Karang Lestari Foundation. The bay has the largest area of shallow coral reefs in Bali due to its calm waves year-round.

    You can enjoy the views of spectacular coral reef growth near the coastline. Hotel and dive shop owners collaborated closely with the village to protect the area, and The Karang Lesteri Project took off in the year 2000, establishing the first coral nursery. Now, divers can enjoy expansive artificial reef gardens built over time, and even ‘adopt’ a coral with a structure built in their name.

    The Royal Palace of Singaraja was the home of the late king and novelist, Anak Agung Pandji Tisna. He was also the founder of Lovina Beach, making him the pioneer of modern tourism in North Bali. A visit to this landmark in Singaraja is like travelling back in time to classical Bali.

    The palace was built in the 17th century and represents a significant part in the region’s rich, cultural heritage. You can drop in for a palace tour and discover its beautiful Balinese architecture through the family’s living quarters and the royal family’s shrines and temples.

The falls are fed by 2 upland streams and is the most accessible of the collection of falls in the area. Even so, getting down here requires a good deal of effort, with dirt tracks, a hundred or so steps and crossings over streams.

    There are purpose-built gazebos where you can cool down and catch your breath while enjoying the view of the 80m-tall majestic fall from a distance. To get nearer, you’ll need to go further down more steps, but the scenery certainly justifies the effort.

    Singsing Waterfall is well tucked away up in the forested hills of the Cempaga village in Banjar, North Bali. It's about 50 km west of the town hub and main beach resort areas of North Bali such as Lovina. To get there, you’ll need to take a 20-minute walk through rural countryside and along a moderate forest trail. Its name roughly translates to ‘daybreak waterfall’.

    Singsing offers a pleasant nature break from the Lovina crowds. Best time to go is during the wet season (October through April) when the waterfall pours into a rocky pool. A narrow trail over the waterfall leads you to a spacious upper creek. Here, you'll find lava stone pools that you can soak in.

    West Bali National Park

    West Bali National Park (locally referred to as Taman Nasional Bali Barat) is a protected forested region that covers most of the central-western Bali region, spanning approximately 19,000 hectares. The park features a mix of open savannahs, dense rainforests, mangrove swamps, and coral reefs. It was originally the home of the Bali Starling, which is now well out of the ‘endangered species’ zone thanks to a successful breeding programme here and on the island of Nusa Penida.

    While the wilderness is seldom visited, the coastal areas of the park attract snorkelers and divers for its superb year-round visibility and thriving coral reefs. Entry to the park and the island requires special permits that can be arranged for tours from your hotel concierge. Menjangan Island is also part of this park.

It's the final resting place of namesake prince Jayaprana, one of the protagonists in a twisted and tragic love story akin to Romeo and Juliet.

    Known locally as Pura Puncak Luhur Sari or Makam Jayaprana, the actual tomb is a 15-minute walk up a flight of well-paved stairs from the main roadside and offers wonderful views of the north Bali landscape and the bay of Teluk Terima.
