Explore North Bali
Although vast and filled with natural wonders, the gorgeous north of Bali is still mainly overlooked by tourists who mostly prefer the hectic pace of the south.
The main draws of this area are probably the amazing diving and snorkelling spots, the beautiful sleepy beaches and the stunning waterfalls. During the Dutch colonial period Singaraja, the largest town of the region, was the administrative capital of the whole island, thanks to its port and easy access to the island of Java. Reminders of this past are still visible, especially in the noticeably wide roads and in the old house with large gardens. Lovina is the other main town of the north often visited by tourists. Sitting on a long stretch of black sand this village is popular with visitors who want to experience a more relaxed and authentic Balinese beach life. All along the north coast are also many other interesting spots, while the mainly unspoilt inland is home to beautiful waterfalls, lakes and rainforest-covered mountains.
