Driving Times in Bali

We are planning on the following itinerary over 14 nights - main purpose snorkelling/diving with a bit of culture, shopping and eating thrown in:

Airport to Ubud (3 nights(

Ubud to Pemurteran (4 nights)

Pemurteran to Amed (5 nights)

Amed to Sanur (2 nights)

We would appreciate your comments on the following please:

1. How long will it take to each destination from departure destination?

If we know the times, then we can factor in sight seeing along the way so for example:

Leave Ubud early, visit mountain/lake etc. on way to Pemurteran.

Thanks for your input. Cheers

GHM,

subject to weather, time of day, traffic etc, where you are staying, I'd work on driving time of:

A/port - Ubud - 1.5-2hrs - night/peak-hour travel will add a few extra minutes, getting past Denpasar, and depends where abts in Ubud u are staying;

Ubud - P - 4-4.5hrs - over a mountain, some interesting switchback corners, to get to Singaraja, then along the coastal strip.

P - Amed 4-4.5hrs - can find coastal rd hard to travel, so most drivers prefer to head 'around-about' way

Amed - Sanur - 2hrs, maybe 2.5.- easy straight and simple once you get past Candi dasa.

Cheers

Mark

Thanks for your input. We have allocated a 'driving day' between locations as we realised it would a long trip. So with any luck, leaving at say 8.30am we should be able to fit in a couple of sights before arriving at our next destination.

Our arrival at the airport is 8pm so it will be rather late to Ubud. Thanks again.

If you are driving from the airport to Ubud in the evening, there should be little traffic. You should make it in approx 1 hour.

You could take a very scenic route from Ubud to Pemuteran. I would make a day of it and check out beautiful places on the way.

Yes, my husband is suggesting we turn left after seeing the mountain/lake north of Ubud and then taking the back road, by-passing Lovina.

We can always have a stop in Lovina on the way to Amed.

We are really into smaller, secondary roads where we can see more of the country and the people.
