Add a Point to the Map

North Bali is a coastal area in Bali.

This is an area far removed from the hectic pace that can be so apparent in South Bali.

In Dutch colonial days, Singaraja with its port and easy access from Java was the administrative capital of the island. Touches of that history still remain with the noticeably wide streets and the occasional old house which has retained the large gardens which would have pleased the Dutch so much. This combines to give Singaraja a different feel and atmosphere to any other town or city in Bali.

Lovina is the other area of the region often visited by tourists. The name Lovina was actually coined for tourism development purposes in the 1950s and consists of three traditional villages along a stretch of black sand fringed coastline. Development has been a bit haphazard here but that just seems to add to its laid back charm. Lovina is popular with visitors who want a beachside holiday in Bali but do not want the hectic pace of the resort regions of South Bali.
