Dolphin WatchingOne of the most rewarding Lovina activities, is undoubtedly dolphin watching. There is a certain mystery to waking up at sunrise, walking to the beach, to find your local boatman and embarking on your adventure. In no time the dolphins appear in pods of 10 to literally 100’s. Some mornings, they even put on a full dolphin show with backflips, massive jumps and sometimes even tail-walking.

Hot and cold springs

Banjar HotspringLovina hosts the unusual combination of natural cold and hot springs. The cold springs are a peculiar spectacle: cold spring water flows into a large pool made from volcanic rocks and later continues onwards into the ocean. The water is crystalline and for a small fee you can bask in the sun while enjoying the refreshing spring water. Go during the week and you’ll be practically alone and during the weekend, laugh along with the local families.For a therapeutic treatment, make your way to the gorgeous hot springs. Perched amidst the exuberant tropical vegetation of a nearby mountain, warm water flowing from Bali’s volcanic soil gushes out of the stone carved mouths of Balinese statues. The natural smell of sulphur adds a healing touch to the relaxing experience. While you’ll probably encounter a few tourists, the hot springs are not well known and therefore not crowded.

Lakes

Lake BratanNot to be missed on a North Bali itinerary is a visit to the lakes. Lake Beratan and its exotic Ulun Danu temple is straight out of a postcard. Lake Buyan is a sight to be seen. Once a volcanic crater – it is now surrounded by villages that cultivate tasty strawberries. You’ll probably pass more than a few friendly macaque monkeys along the way!
