Driving around Bali: Munduk to the Organic Farm

Oh so pretty.

You could easily give Munduk a day or three and spend your time visiting nearby waterfalls, taking ricefield walks or just enjoying the view, but eventually you’ll need to move on and while there are a number of options from Munduk, we’re going to continue our drive around Bali heading east through a caldera and … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Medewi to Munduk

Just another day in Munduk.

You must be thinking this is the slowest drive of all time around Bali, but we’re getting there! From Medewi you have two options — continue east along the coast to Balian and beyond or veer inland. We’re going to opt for the latter and take a left turn at the main junction over the … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Pemuteran to Medewi

Published by under Driving around Bali

Just another slice of rural scenery.

The far western tip of Bali offers a startling change in experiences as you transition from the less-trafficked north coast to the more heavily (and truck favoured) south. Along the way you get to soak up some great forest, excellent views of Java and perhaps a couple of Christian outposts before blasting along the south … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Lovina to Pemuteran

From Lovina it’s an easy ride along the northwest coast of Bali to reach the diving and snorkelling beachside hideaway of Pemuteran. The road skirts the coastline for much of the way and aside from the rising hills to the south it’s really a bit of an uneventful ride, with junction town Seririt being the … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Amed to Lovina

You must have been thinking we were never going to get out of Amed, huh?! Compared to the windy coastal route from Candi Dasa to Amed the road onwards to Lovina is a breeze. It’s a long drive, but plain sailing with barely a hill along the way. That’s not to say it isn’t scenic, … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Candi Dasa to Amed

For those doing a quick loop of Bali, from Candi Dasa the next logical stop is Amed, a beachside series of bays about an hour and a half north of Candi Dasa. It’s known for its black sand beaches, off-the-beach snorkelling and volcano vistas — it forms one of those all round “pleasurable place to … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Sanur to Candi Dasa

We’re starting our trip around Bali from Sanur just because that is where we happen to live, and we’re aiming for Candi Dasa, a somewhat aging resort town to the northeast of Sanur. It’s an easy 90-minute drive if you take the direct route, but we’re not going to do that. The most direct route … read the full post

Driving around Bali: Predeparture briefing

Bali is big, beautiful, round(ish) and dotted with interesting places to visit — perfect for a road trip. You can circumnavigate Bali in as little as a couple of days or as long as a couple of months, by car or by motorbike. We thought we’d zoom around the island and put together a suggested … read the full post
