Why Pemuteran Beach is special ?
Pemuteran lives a double life as a fishing village and a low-key holiday getaway. Alongside idling on the beach – a ribbon of black and biscuit-colour sand which arcs for a kilometre or so – Pemuteran is known for its snorkelling and diving. More than a dozen reefs are within easy reach of the shore – Pemuteran has the largest shallow-reef area in Bali – and seas are calm so there’s a site to suit all abilities. The marine life is varied, too; from turtles, giant clams and manta rays, to the very occasional whale shark.

You will be able to see the Pemuteran project of restoring the Pemuteran reef back to its condition before just like in Menjangan island.

Tips for you
As a coral reef ecologist I have wanted to visit Pemuteran and its artificial reefs for a number of years. The drive to Pemuteran through the interior of Bali past the beautiful lakes and attractions around Budegul was beautiful and fun. Pemuteran itself is a welcome step down of gears from Southern Bali and lived up to our expectations. The pace is slow, the scenery magnificent and the stewardship partnership to protect and restore the marine resources between the tourism operators and local communities is a source of hope for the future. We splashed out and stayed at one of the up market resorts (Amertha Villas) and enjoyed the beach front position, beautiful mature gardens and breathtaking backdrop. The villas are palatial but best of all the resort (and several others) provide easy guided access to the reef, artificial reef structures and beyond. As a place to relax, unwind and enjoy Bali's beautiful marine environment Pemuteran is a real treat that can be enjoyed by all ages.
