While Lovina is not a perfect beach destination, it is clean enough to go for a swim and pleasant enough to hang around for a few hours.
The black sands are more of a dark grey — don't come expecting Santorini style, jet black sand.
Aside from laying around and frolicking in the waters, the big draw on Lovina beaches are the magnificent sunsets with west Bali in the background and expensive yachts in the foreground.
Beach sellers will pester you to buy fruit and knick-knacks, but the attention is not as brutal as in the south and you will be able to watch the sensational sunset in relative peace.
