Lovina holidays are perfect if you are seeking a more authentic Balinese experience. Located on the north coast, Lovina is famous for its striking black sand beaches, incredible sunsets and resident spinner dolphins, which appear every day around sunrise.
Lovina Beach itself is a long beach stretching over one mile, boasting volcanic sand that is lapped by turquoise waters. Rise early for a dolphin watching cruise and then chill out beachside or by your hotel pool. Lovina Reef has some of the best preserved coral and marine life in Bali, making it ideal if you wish to go snorkelling and diving. From Lovina Beach you can visit Gitgit Village and its three surrounding waterfalls for a taste of local Lovina life, or head to the Banjar Hot Springs. Located just 15 minutes from the beach, you can soak away your troubles in four jungle pools that bubble with their thermal waters. Don’t miss a visit to the beautiful Buddhist monastery, Brahma Vihara Arama, set nearby in the hills of Banjar.
Holidays in Lovina: an authentic taste of Bali
Why not stay at The Lovina Bali, a boutique resort located right on the beach and that boasts a large, refreshing swimming pool and runs its own dolphin watching trips?

“Lovina is a laid-back Balinese paradise, located two and a half hours from Denpasar Airport. The drive there is spectacular, passing rice terraces and the water goddess temple, Pura Ulun Danu. Stop off at Munduk for breath-taking views of twin lakes Tamblingan and Buyan.”
“If you’ve always dreamed of spotting dolphins in their natural habitat, Lovina is the place for you. Local fishing boats are available for sunrise trips where you can catch a glimpse of these friendly creatures playing in the surf.”
