Explore The North Bali!!! Pemuteran village is located in the northwest corner of the island of Bali in Indonesia. Pemuteran village is located in Geroggak sub district, Buleleng regency. It took about 5-6 hours by car from the Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Pemuteran is a small town on the bay of Pemuteran, North Bali. It lies on the Bali sea, in an idyllic landscape with nine mountains. It is the largest area of shallow coral reefs in Bali. Although tourism is still relatively in its infancy here, the popularity increases, because of the excellent diving opportunities. The serene beach of Pemuteran is far away from the crowds in the south of Bali. A perfect place for lovers of natural beauty and tranquility. The people in Pemuteran will not try to persuade you to buy something, when walk by their shop. They keep a civilized distance. In a small side street just off the main road in Pemuteran you can find the Pemuteran temple.
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 and there is a real spirit of marine conservation effort in this area.
Must do: DIVING! Also, grab a massage, just make sure to tell them not to massage your boobs (unless you like that sorta thing) – it made me pretty uncomfortable. Try Ikan Bakar, grilled fish in Balinese spices.
Accommodations near Pemuteran Bali
There aren’t many to choose from in Pemuteran, which is partly the beauty of this little sleepy beach village. Here were some of our favorites :
- Reef Seen – if you’re a diver, this place is perfect. Right on a beautiful stretch of beach, close to fabulous restaurants and budget friendly. They’re small, with only a few rooms, which is exactly what we were looking for.
- Taman Sari Beach Resort – this place is gorgeous, and right next to Reef Seen. We had several meals at their beautiful beach front restaurant that were fantastic.
- Taruna Homestay – small but plenty of amenities, and a swimming pool. Even though it’s not directly on the beach, the family atmosphere and price might make up for it.
- Matahari Beach Resort & Spa – a gorgeous luxury option with a restaurant, spa and pool that’s right on the beach.
