Tips for you
Just outside of pemuteran on the Jl. Singaraja-Gilimanuk rd., directly on the beach (watch for the 'seadiving monkeys'), lies the old temple dating back to the 16th century, which is kept literally 'alive' by hundreds of monkeys - less interested in the temple buildings itself but much more what you have that could be nicked from you - food, cameras, phones, etc.. ;-)
