We left in the morning after breakfast at around 9.30 am, drove back to the main street heading North West towards Gilimanuk again. The road was quit busy with all the trucks and Lorries that are going and returning from the island of Java. We drove into a small road before a Moslem mosque, a couple hundred meters from Medewi Beach Cottages to a small natural port for the local fishermen. We parked the car by the end of the road, right by the beach. We walk around the beach where there were many Jukung, traditional outriggers and fishermen who were just returning from the Indian Ocean for fishing. The women were waiting on the beach with baskets and big bowls for their husband’s catches. One by one of...Read More

We made a day of excursion to the island of Menjangan for snorkeling. We arranged the trip with one of the diving company from Taman Sari Beach Cottages that take their clients out to Menjangan Island on a boat straight from the front of the hotel. It was a great boat trip and we got a chance to snorkel at some of the good points of the snorkeling sites there on the island. It is a small island where it has some nice white sand beach, beautiful coral, colorful fish. It was really a fabulous snorkeling that we had there. We got back to the resort around 2.30 PM and getting ready to continue our trip to Lovina for our next stay, which is around 50 km from Pemuteran. We left the hotel...Read More

We departed from Puri Bagus Hotel after breakfast at around 9.30 am, running a bit late as we have planned on leaving at 9 am that morning. We drove out from the hotel, heading west back to down town of Lovina again as we missed the hot spring the previous day and reschedule it for today. We made a left turn by the crossroads where it has a big sign of Hot Spring. We drove through the smaller road to the village of Banjar and made a short stop by the local morning market at the village where there were dozens of women selling fruits, offerings, vegetables and tropical spices. We continued to Banjar Hot spring after the market, paid Rupiah 3,000 per person to enter the hot spring where you ca...Read More

We went out on a traditional outrigger for fishing with the local fisherman that we have arranged via the hotel the night before. It was exciting to be on a little motor Jukung, that’s what they name the traditional boat. It has a little motor as well as a sail. They only use the sail when they are having enough wind. We went quit far out to the sea and caught some fish. We did the fishing on the boat for about two hours before heading back to the hotel. We got back to the hotel and gave all the fish to the fisherman to bring home for his family. We got ready to leave the hotel for our trip to Ubud. We checked out from Villa Santai and be back on the road again, driving south along the coast...Read More
