A short and sweet post from North West Bali, and alone time with Kris (hi Kris!)
I’ve never been to the north coast, and since we came over land from Java and arrived in the evening, spent 2 or 3 hours hoping a bus would fill up and take us somewhere (which it didn’t so we just chilled in the bus station until it got dark and we were starving to death), Pemuteran, just outside the West Bali National Park, seemed like an excellent place to relax for a couple of days.
The place we stayed – Jubawa Homestay – was perfect. Really nice place and the off-season price was amazingly cheap – USD25.00 for the room, breakfast and dinner for the two of us. Diving was pretty cheap too. There were some pretty nice wall dives around the park, if that’s your thing, although not a whole lot of creatures really. Pemuteran has a few hotels, but is pretty much just a fishing village along the main Northern road, and is WAY quieter than anywhere else I’ve been in Bali. A perfect place for a mid-travelling holiday!
