This travel guide helps you discover East Bali, one of the island’s remote and exotic areas where you can explore scenic mountains with ancient temples at their feet or hidden high above in misty forested peaks. Some of the island’s most magnificent historical landmarks call East Bali home, including well-kept royal palaces and beautiful water gardens with intricately sculpted gargoyles, towering fountains and lotus ponds filled with tilapia and golden carp.
Along the coastline of East Bali, you can find stretches of quiet beaches featuring a stark combination of stunning white to fine-grain black volcanic sand, as well as the large pebbly coasts of local fishing villages neatly lined with wooden outriggers. While most of East Bali’s overland terrain is seemingly arid, particularly that of Amed and Tulamben, what lies underneath the waves continue to attract divers from the world over.
