Lovina beach, on the N coast of Bali, is a narrow 8km strip of black volcanic sand and a muddy, cloudy sea. Though the coastline is not attractive, Lovina is a popular destination with budget travelers, because it is cheaper, less developed, retains a local character and is less stressful than Kuta. The highlight for many visitors are the dolphin tours.
Lovina extends along 3 beaches - Anturan, Kalibukbuk & Temukus. Kalibukbuk is the central area were most people stay.
Mosquitos are a problem, take precautions: mosquito nets, coils/repellents, cover arms & legs in the evenings.
Singaraja, 11km from Lovina, is the main city and transport center in the NE region.
There are a few shuttle bus companies operating direct buses to Lovina from Yogyakarta & Solo in Java.
