Lovina Beach in Bali

Everything You Need to Know about Lovina Beach

Lovina Beach is a combination of smaller beaches traversing several local villages between 2 districts in the North Bali regency of Buleleng. The beach is a nice alternative to the highly popular (and often crowded) beaches of Bali's south, such as Kuta, Legian and Seminyak. Calmer waves, serene black-sand shores, thrills in the offing, and a nightlife scene, are just a few things that sum up this North Bali coast.

Lovina Beach spans 2 km from east to west, with a small area in Kalibukbuk Village as its main focal point. Sunsets are quite the highlight here, with a rather subdued nightlife after dusk. A large parking space borders the beach, with rows of cafés and trendy seafood restaurants at its sides. Near the sand, a towering statue of a dolphin stands as Lovina's official landmark. Head east and you'll find an airy boardwalk lined with art shops and traditional food stalls.

Lovina Beach Highlights

Lovina Beach’s sunrises are as ‘gently exciting’ as its sunsets, and are when participants of dolphin watching tours board colourful jukung (traditional motorised outriggers) to catch a glimpse of the several different species in these waters. Keep your camera gear ready as these flippers breach the smooth water surface in a blink of an eye. The most frequently sighted are the dark-skinned spinner dolphins that are present year-round, except during the Chinese Lunar New Year period, when rains are heavy and irregular (from February to April).

What to Do at Lovina Beach

Many hotels dot the area, with several luxurious units perched high on the hills, offering a vantage point over the beautiful bay and a different angle of its crimson sunsets. Some of the must-sees around Lovina Beach are the Banjar Hot Springs and the Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist temple. The hot springs are a popular weekend escape among locals and foreign visitors, where you can wade in its pools or soothe under its dragon water spouts. The Brahma Vihara Arama is the largest Buddhist temple on the island, with a small-scale but impressive Borobudur Temple on its hilltop.
