The main development of tourism in Bali has been focused in the south part of the Island. This resulted in a boom in building and prices. The south has become very crowded and more and more people start looking for alternative locations.

The north west of Bali offers an attractive alternative. It has all the characteristics of a perfect holiday destination. The landscape is framed by a beautiful mountain range and a coastline with bays, reefs and beaches. You are near to Barat National Park and Menjangan Island, probably the best area for diving.
This part of Bali also offers some of the most important Hindu and Budist temples. People are friendly and the atmosphere is still unspoiled by mass tourism. Places like Pemuteran are now a benchmark example for sustainable tourism development in Bali.

A planned new airport close to Singaraja and a new road will facilitate access to this area in the future.

The north west receives less rainfall and during the seasons and has a more pleasant climate then the southern and central part of Bali.
