North Bali
The perfect area to relax

North Bali is definitely not the favorite area among the tourist. The first choice of them is certainly the south side of Bali, not far from the airport of Bali, Ngurah Rai.

But you can’t hardly say that this area less interesting to visit. In fact this is the place to escape from the crowd and the hassle of Bali.

This is absolutely the perfect area to relax, with the beautiful beaches, hidden villages, and great places to do snorkeling and diving.

And if you like partying and night life you are totally at the wrong place. You would be disappointed if you’re looking for great surfer place, crowd, and luxury resort as you can find in the south part of the island.

Here in this area you might get the feeling of Bali thirty years ago, quiet and peaceful.

Watching Dolphins playing in the waves in the morning at Lovina Beach, walking on the delightful black sand beach, or anything you want to do for a relax vacation. Enjoy the grandiose view of Mount Agung in the distance, or diving in Pulau Menjangan or Deer Island would be another amazing experience.

Maybe the areas isn’t superb area like the south side, but in this part of Bali you’re really feel that you are on vacation. After all vacation is to relax and not to hassle, right?

Personally I like peaceful places; even in the crowded place I’m certainly looking for more outback places where less people are located.

For me Lovina beach is certainly my favorite, and you might be getting boring if you like other things than peaceful beach and quiet place.
