The beaches of Lovina are characterized by its rural nature and its unique, dark colored sand of volcanic origin with calm sea water containing a variety of sea coral and tropical fishes , with tranquil waters that are clean, but look black because of the sand base. It is still a pleasant and attractive beach.

Lovina beach is officially located in Kalibukbuk area and covering some countryside like Pemaron, Tukad Mungga, Anturan and Kalibukbuk countryside.

However, there is a condition. To see the various attractions that shown by the Dolphins, travelers must go to sea very early, around 06.00. This is because the Dolphins are just emerging in the area of Lovina beach between the hours of 6 to 8 am only. The quiet and solitude were amazing. The sea around was smooth to breath taking. The light in the sky and the reflections of light of the water seemed to merge at an unknown point on the horizon. Slowly more colors filled the skies as the sun rose behind the volcanic mountains.

This was one of those special moments in time when you can appreciate the natural beauty that the world has to offer….. and you were pleased to be taking the time to enjoy every moment of it. The sunrise was beautiful out on the water as the moon faded in the distance and the sun began to dance off the ripples made by fisher boat and the slight water movement from a slight wind.

How to get there

Domestic tourists who travel by air should be arrive at the only airport in Bali: Ngurah Rai Airport. Ngurah Rai Airport and Lovina Beach is like from the southern tip to the northern tip of Bali. The distance can be more than 120 km. It can take up to almost three hours to get there. The best recommendation to really enjoy Lovina Beach is a minimum stay overnight in this area.

You can easily get to Lovina by bus from all parts of Bali, but it is a long ride from the East or South. Getting your own car with or without a driver ( Unrecommended !!) is a much easier way to get to the North. Again it is much easier to hire a driver and car for any longer journey. You can travel from Kuta in less than 3hrs and from the airport or Sanur in about 2.30hrs. You will travel through (Pura Ulun Danau) Bedugul and could go the pretty way through Munduk if you are not in a hurry. So you could stop to take in the temple, lakes and rice paddies on your trip and make a day of it.
