Discover Permuteran: Where Tranquillity Meets Adventure

Welcome to Permuteran, a hidden gem nestled on the northwestern coast of Bali, where the serene beauty of nature merges seamlessly with exhilarating adventures. Pemuteran, situated on the almost untouched northwest coast of Bali, stands in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of towns like Ubud, Seminyak, Canggu and Sanur. Its serene ambiance and remote location make it an idyllic escape for those seeking to escape the madding crowds. Diving enthusiasts are drawn to Pemuteran for its exceptional underwater visibility and diverse marine ecosystem, while snorkelers revel in the peaceful bay waters and the presence of an artificial reef just offshore

Unveil Nature’s Canvas

Prepare to be awe-inspired by Permuteran’s stunning landscapes. With its pristine beaches, lush tropical forests, and majestic mountains, every step you take reveals a masterpiece painted by nature itself. The sunsets here are nothing short of magical, casting a warm, golden glow that transforms the horizon into a work of art.

Dive into Underwater Wonders

Calling all underwater enthusiasts! Permuteran boasts an underwater wonderland that will leave you speechless. Dive into crystal-clear waters and encounter vibrant coral reefs teeming with a kaleidoscope of marine life. Whether you’re an experienced diver or a novice snorkeler, the underwater treasures of Menjangan Island in the West Bali National Park await your exploration.

Snorkelling: While the option to join a dive boat as a snorkeler is the best option, Pemuteran also offers the unique opportunity to snorkel directly from the beach. Numerous guesthouses and hotels provide snorkelling equipment, and dive shops also offer rentals.

Diving: Pemuteran serves as a launchpad for diving adventures within the confines of West Bali National Park. Divers are ferried to Menjangan Island within the national park—if you venture out of the water onto the island, a short walk will see you greeted by shy families of deer (menjangan means deer in Indonesian) as they usher you towards the magnificent Segara Giri Dharma Kencana Temple, whose Ganesh statue towers over the sea on the hilly shore in the northeastern part of the island.

West Bali National Park: Bali’s sole national park rests at the northeastern extremity of the island, proximate to Java. This sanctuary shelters an array of rare bird species and diverse flora and fauna. Access requires a permit, and the journey from Pemuteran typically takes around 20 minutes by car.

Embrace Cultural Enrichment

Immerse yourself in the rich Balinese culture that permeates every corner of Permuteran. Engage with friendly locals who are eager to share their traditions, music, and warm hospitality. Don’t miss the chance to witness traditional dance performances and intricate craftsmanship that have been passed down through generations.

Connect with Spirituality

Find inner peace amidst Permuteran’s spiritual havens. Meditate at serene temples nestled within lush landscapes, and let the gentle rhythms of daily life here guide you toward mindfulness and self-discovery.

Pura Pulaki Monkey Temple

Pura Sakti, Pura Pulaki and Pura Melanting, nearby Hindu temples, are refreshingly free of overwhelming tourist footfall. Entry fees are modest and sarongs are provided. For a sunset spectacle, Pura Pabean, a seaside temple, offers a captivating experience, although caution is advised due to the presence of cheeky macaque monkeys that delight in stealing from the unwary.
