best things to do when in Pemuteran

We are going to Pemuteran in November primarily to snorkel/dive [we have 2 teenage children] but wondered how long we should spend there. What else do other travellers We are only in Bali for 13 days and so far we are going to Ubud and Pemuteran. Thankyou.

1. Re: best things to do when in Pemuteran

We spent 3 nights in Pemuteran in September, hubby did advanced PADI whilst up there. My only regret is that we weren't there for longer. Soooo laid back and peaceful, wouldn't hesitate to go back. We stayed at Amertha villas, spent most time lazing, eating and mooching up and down the beach.

During the evening the beach comes alive, and most of the people are Balinese, just enjoying their home- such an amazing atmosphere.

Really can't recommend it highly enough- just don't tell everyone!

I haven't stayed up there yet but we are booked in for 4 nights in January. With our friends and between us we have five kids. Like you we are primarily going for the diving, also to show the kids another part of Bali.

We want to hike into the national park www.bumimekepung.com/west-bali-national-park/ .

Visit hot springs, I know there are some up north.

See the turtle place and the kids want to donate some money, hopefully we'll get to release a turtle, www.reefseenbali.com/bali-turtle-project.asp

Pony rides on the beach, reefseenbali.com/bali-activities-others.asp

Walk, eat, swim and meet the locals.. now I'm all excited and wish we were staying longer!!

Wow..that's a pretty extensive list rockterrigal : ) Where is the white sand beach...I'll have to read your blog and find out. The turtle sanctuary is small and seasonal. We were there in May and they only had a few baby turtles there, but they are happy to show people around. My favourite thing to do in Pemuteran is to relax and enjoy being away from the maddening crowd!

the white sand beach is gondol beach. the strip of white sand is narrow and you pass a sewerage works to get there. not recommended.

my favourite was the early morning walk to the west for the temple hill view and the bay behind it plus the snorkelling. the banjar hot springs though a bit of a drive were cool. everyone were there were locals but welcoming.
