North Eastern Bali is a pleasant area to stay. It’s away from all the traffic and overcrowded areas such as Denpasar.
The traffic on the roads, although narrow, is not so heavy and travelling much more relaxed.
The coastline is beautiful and in the afternoons every single space on the beaches is take up by the Jukungs, which are traditional double outrigger canoes. Parking space for them is at a premium.
