Adventure Location
Padang Padang
Just down the road from Uluwatu is Padang-Padang, which is another enchanting beach nestled into a pocket of lava-rocks, with an entrance to the beach though a cave crevice. This small cove offers famous world-class waves that attract surfers from all over the world. The water is also safe for swimming and snorkeling. The beach is small but the setting is enchanting and memorable, and like Uluwatu has warungs for drinks and snacks.
Down the Peninsula from Padang-Padang, this long stretch of white-sand beach is free of warungs and people, and still maintaining its original natural make-up of flora along the towering cliffs. Unfortunately, at high tide the beach all but disappears under the waves, and for this reason Impossibles is not an ideal place for relaxing on the sand, although it is a great setting for a sea-side walk at low tide. Swimming is not advised here, and the waves are for experienced surfers only, as they break over reef.
A few hundred meters up from Bingin is Dreamland, which overlooks every other Bukit beach all the way to Uluwatu. Because of its beauty, white sand and cliff outcroppings, it has become the chic beach of the day, and it is usually fairly busy with tourists, and quite a number of warungs and small bungalows have been built in the area. It is a great beach for swimming and surfing, as it offers a sand-bottom break, but often has a strong rip current.
Tulamben Beach is inseparable from the history of Tulamben Village as a marine village. The lava floods and rolling of huge volcanic stones dragged the shipwreck of Liberty to the depth of 30 meters above sea level and fragmented into to parts. This shipwreck then became to be the home to hundreds of species of coral fish and shrimp. That's why Tulamben is more quiet but more popular for diving and snorkeling.
Nusa Lembongan (Lembongan Island)
In the year 1200, there was an old man from Mount Kila, called Dukuh Jumpungan who owned a boat which had a magical power. Legend has it that whenever he sailed on his boat, everything he encountered and struck by his boat would become an ocean.

One day, Dukuh Jumpungan heard that there was a very sacred mountain called Mount Tohlangkir. Dukuh Jumpungan was determined to prove the magical power of his boat by hitting the sacred Mount Tohlangkir. He wished to make Mount Tohlangkir disappear and became an ocean. He sailed in a southeast direction from Padang Bay, collided his boat to Mount Tohlangkir. The boat rebounded shakily, and finally sank. An island appeared in the area where the boat rebounded shakily and is now called Nusa Ceningan. The area where his boat sank became an island and is now called Nusa Lembongan.

In Balinese, Lembongan means mushroom. Now, Nusa Lembongan is one of the most popular destinations for cruising and sailing. The pristine white sandy beaches with aquamarine bays are brimming with colorful sea life, so diving and snorkeling are also very popular sports in Nusa Lembongan. One can also enjoy the glass bottomed boat rides. With the backdrop of Mount Agung, Nusa Lembongan has spectacular scenery and offers unforgettable adventures. Lembongan's neighboring island, Nusa Penida, has more ominous reputation and is less popular.
Amed, around 30 minutes drive from Candidasa, is one of the best scuba diving and snorkeling spots in Bali with its breathtaking under water world. Amed is a traditional cultural center with only minor influences from tourism, you can see the village boys and girls practicing traditional music and the fisherman sail their outrigger canoes out to catch the fish.

Imagine diving on the black sand slope of volcano towering over the reef or a night on the wreck of Liberty at the undeveloped and unspoiled corner of paradise.
Nusa Penida (Penida Island)
Nusa Penida offers fine swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sunbathing, also dramatic walks, unspoilt scenery, deep caves, and delightful, friendly villagers. Nusa Penida is the most gorgeous dive place in Bali with vast spread of coral reefs and rich with color and fish. Most visitors stay in Jungut Batu on Nusa Lembongan and come over to Nusa Penida island on day trips.
Nusa Ceningan (Ceningan Island)
Ceningan Island is just next to Nusa Lembongan. When there is no swell at Nusa Lembongan head around here for a fun wave with water slides and watch banana boats. Many nice coral formations like pillars, table corals and a lot of fish make the Ceningan Island is good place to dive.
Pemuteran Beach
Pemuteran Beach located in the northwest of Bali, around 90 minutes from Singaraja. Pemuteran has so many gorgeous fishes, turtles and other marine and submarine habitats and coral reef. This peaceful place is ideal for natural excursion activities such as tramping at the National Park, swimming, snorkeling and diving.
Menjangan Island
It is an hour drive from Lovina, then a 30-minute boat ride onto the island. As part of the West Bali National Park, Menjangan Island is well known for its clearest water in the Indonesian archipelago and most beautiful coral reefs in Bali. Along with the nearby Labuan Lalang, this is a great place for diving and snorkeling amongst the coral reefs and fish in the sparkling clear water. Another popular attraction is the dolphin watching.
