Pemuteran Bay is one of the hidden gems of Bali. A place with beautiful scenery, award winning coral reefs and a serene beach far away from the hustle bustle of south Bali. A perfect place to see a still unspoiled Bali with a long list of highlights to experience.|
Pemuteran is located in the North West coast of Bali, approximately 3,5 hours drive from the Airport in Denpasar. This route is one of the most interesting and scenic tours in Bali. Lovina is 45 minutes and it is about 20 minutes drive to Bali Barat National Park and Menjangan island diving site. The ferry to Java at Gilimanuk is 30 minutes.
This peaceful place is ideal for nature excursions, activities such as trekking at the National Park, Swimming, Snorkelling, Diving or exploring the sacred Temples surrounding the area such as Melanting, Kerta Kawat, Pulaki, Pabean and Pemuteran Temple. The Ijen crater on Java can be visited on a day trip and offers one of the most impressive sights in Indonesia.
Pemuteran receives less rainfall than other island areas during the rainy season. It is therefore one of the best destinations to choose in Bali for November – April.
The sea is calm and free of strong currents and waves, which affect most other parts of the island. The bay has the largest area of shallow coral reefs in Bali. Pemuteran community declared that the reefs are protected no-fishing zones, for eco-tourism use only. The Biorock project is the largest reef restoration in the world and won a special United Nations Award in 2012.
Pemuteran is an example on sustainable tourist development. It is one of the few places in Bali where you will not be bothered on the beach, as the community safeguards a hassle free environment. Here you can still enjoy an unspoiled environment .
Villa Semadhi is easy to find. Head west along the coast road from Seririt and you will come to the Pulaki Temple, here the mountains almost touch the sea. A few hundred meters further, you come to the first compound on the ocean side of the road. Here you will find Villa Semadhi.
