I am planning a trip to Bali in August for my husband and I, and I want to stay 3 nights in either Lovina or Pemuteran but I can't decide which.
We want to spend one day diving around Menjangan Island, one day relaxing and exploring the area surrounding where ever we end up. Oh and preferably to have access to somewhere my husband can watch AFL football one night.
I realise Menhangan is closer to Pemuteran, but I am struggling to find information on what else is there is to do in the area, and whether or not there are many restaurants, hotels etc. to choose from (preferably one being within walking distance of the other). Lovina seems to have more bars and restaurants?
For background we will also spend a day either side in Sanur. We come to Bali regularly but this will be our first visit to the north of the island.
So if you had to choose between Lovina and Pemuteran what would it be and why? Any recommendations for a good dive shop in either location would be appreciated too.
