From Munduk we drove almost 2 hours north to Pemuteran on the northeast coast of Bali. This is our third time visiting Pemuteran and the second for Elina.
We like coming up here because it is a lot less crowded than the south of the island, with mostly European travellers here. And you can snorkel straight from the beach, which we did. There’s good diving here too and Paul went out near Menjangan Island.
We stay at the same place each time, Taman Sari Resort. The first time we were here was about 20 years ago and the resort has grown and improved since then.
I booked really early, way back in October, so I scored a really good deal for our accomodation by paying up front. It made our stay so much more enjoyable and so far it’s been our favourite place in Bali.
You’ve seen fauna, now here’s some flora.
A drive around Pemuteran
We didn’t just lounge around, snorkel, swim, eat and do nothing in Pemuteran, although we did do some of that. We had a hire car so we went for a drive.
Amazing place – so beautiful. And you look radiant Jolanda – Paula and Elina look healthy too but it is nice to see you looking so relaxed
Hi Kate, that radiant glow is really just me sweating everything out haha. But yes am relaxed. Yet travelling does have its own stresses!
loving the blog … and by coincidence, in your section on the Pemuteran flora, there’s a flower there (second row down from the top, on the right side) that is also flowering right now in a pond at the Bakehouse Studio in Marrickville. Each flower stalk only lasts a day or two, but then another pops up from the clump of floating green leaves.
Great to see you all having so much fun and getting so much exercise, you’ll all be super-fit athletes by the time you leave Indonesia!
Hi Jamie, I thought I saw that exact same flower on Pam’s post on FB! I thought, what, no way – same flower?! I so love tropical flowers! I do hope I’m getting fitter, but somehow the spare tire I’m carrying isn’t deflating much. Hmmm… could be all the good food here.
