The Area Around Puri Segara!

 

Beautiful surroundings

Puri Segara is situated about 15 minutes drive west of Lovina, the tourist center of the north. Beautiful beaches, sawas (flooded rice-fields), plantations, mountains, temples and some nice villages and towns are close by.

More and more people are discovering this still pristine, unspoiled and authentic area of North Bali. The surroundings provide ample scope for exploring, discovery and activities. For a map click here.

If youd like to make a day trip or want to go on a sightseeing tour we recommend using one of the drivers recommended by our Help Desk. They can show you the most unique places and have a lot to tell about the Balinese and their lifestyle.

 

 


Lovina


Lovina, a section of coastline several kilometers west of Singaraja, has been developed. Lovina is made up of the villages of Kaliasem, Kalibukbuk, Banyualit, Anturan, Tukad Munga and Pemaron. The center is Kalibukbuk with restaurants, cafes, small shops, a market, a supermarket and even a bakery. In the center of Lovina you can find an ATM (bank). The town offers a wide choice of good restaurants serving delicious national and international cuisine. For a small amount you can enjoy a delicious lunch in the Chonos Hotel, or have your evening dinner in the French Bistro, Tropis. The prices are 50 to 70% lower than in Europe! Would you prefer something more exclusive? Then please contact Matahari Beach Resort or Damai Beach and Resort. Both offer a Spa and haute cuisine.

Lovina has a number of Western-oriented physicians with a very good reputation.


Dolphins


Lovina is most famous for its dolphins which can be admired every morning out in the open sea before sunrise. From Lovina many fishermen depart daily with tourists in search of dolphins. The large shrimp population along the coast attracts many dolphins to this area and the chance of actually seeing dolphins is 80%. The boat can be surrounded by dozens of dolphins jumping and playing. It is usually sufficient to approach a fisherman one day in advance to make a booking. The trip typically lasts for a little over two hours.

 


Seririt


A five minute drive from the villa takes you to Seririt, where you can buy your groceries at the local morning market. In Seririt you will also find a supermarket, drug store, Clinic, doctors and the local police station. Seririt still is a very traditional, unspoiled place so you will hardly encounter any tourists.

 


Singaraja


Singaraja was once the capital of Bali and is still the largest city in North Bali. Still, you can explore different districts where Dutch settlers used to live and work. In Singaraja at the large supermarket Hardy's you will find all you need for your major shopping although Hardy's in Seririt will satisfy most of your daily shopping needs. The city is about 25 minutes drive from Puri Segara and is still the centre for the north's festivals and ceremonies.

Singaraja is home to the Gedong Kirtya library. Here you will find the famous Lontar Manuscripts and lots of Balinese literature and books on the colonial period. In the port of Singaraja you can still find old warehouses from the days of Dutch colonization. There is also an authentic Chinese temple, a number of department stores, hospitals, pharmacies, banks and a large market.
 
 


Buddhist Monastery


In the hills of Banjar, about 15 minutes away, is a Buddhist monastery, Brahma Vihara Arama. This is the only Buddhist monastery in Bali. The monastery is spread over several layers and has special walls and rooms for prayer. It is also known as the small Borobodur. The monastery is inhabited by some Balinese Buddhist monks. From the hill on which the monastery is located, you have a beautiful view of the area and the sea. A visit to the monastery is easy to combine with the hot springs of Air Panas.  

Hot water springs


Near the monastery, you will find the famous hot springs of Air Panas. These "hot springs" are located in the hills of the village of Banjar and are surrounded by beautiful scenery. The 38C hot sulphurous source ends at eight carved dragonheads. The sulphurous water has a healing effect on skin diseases.

 

Waterfalls

Approximately 20 minutes south of Singaraja is Bali's most spectacular waterfall  - the Git Git waterfall. A path of about 1 km with a variety of souvenir shops leads you past a coffee and a vanilla plantation to the 60-metre-high waterfall. Once you have arrived at the waterfall, you can enjoy the sights, sounds and wind of the water splashing downwards.


We have not made a selection of the most attractive places for sightseeing in Bali, like the temples of Pura Ulun Danau Bratan and Pura Besakih (the mother temple) and the Bali Barat National Park in Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali. We also have not provided a complete overview of all activities in the vicinity of the villa like snorkeling, diving, golfing and hiking.

 

We have, however, shown you some of the attractions very close to Puri Segara
