The Lovina Beach and North Bali region is home to an array of hidden nature attractions, some of which are deep within its mountain forests and down on its quiet coasts. Highlights unique to the area include dolphin-watching tours in the calm seas off Lovina, nature reserves, magnificent temple sites and a collection of fine waterfalls dotting its highlands. The area is less explored compared to Bali’s south, but are definitely worth a trip.
Respect the culture
On temple visits you must wear a sarong, usually with sash (waistband) around your waist. Temples are generally very cheap or free to visit. However, most keepers will show visitors to a 'donation box', or offer sarongs at the entrance (don't worry if you didn't bring one). Always use right hand for gesturing; never left hand or feet.
Respect rules and tradition
There are a few surprising laws and customs in Bali that some foreigners will not be aware of. Public affection is frowned upon and public nudity, including topless sunbathing, is considered unacceptable behaviour. The local culture is very respectful and disrespect against officials or elderly are considered very rude.
We love being able to communicate, even just a little bit, in the local language. And in North Bali is no exception. Whilst the vast majority will speak enough English to communicate with you (albeit sometimes only the basics), even being able to say 'hello', 'thank you', and 'please' will be really appreciated here!
