If you love dolphins and wish to see them in their natural habitat, then the 06:00 am boat trip from Lovina Beach has been happening daily for many years. My first time 18 years ago and now is pretty much the same experience. US$10 per person for a seat in a 6 seater longtail boat. It takes over an hour... More

This beach is amazing at sun set or sunrise we stayed in a Hotel nearby , boats leave early in the morning to see the Dolphins, there are many locals trying to sell you tat all the time but this is worth suffering for the view

We stayed at Canggu but decided to to hire a small jeep to drive ourselves around instead of hiring a driver. Our friend who live in Bali were away at the time so we decided to do our own exploring... And it was successful. Forget maps !!! Forget asking directions. You just take yourselves in hand behind the wheel of... More

It's a quiet volcanic beach. We didn't see many vendors and nobody really bothered us. The sea is flat. We actually didn't go swimming at all. But what made this beach more attractive is the dolphins watching. Or at least the possibility of watching them. It's a really early start of the day - the boat from the beach leaves... More

Amazing sunset at the Lovina Beach. Come early, grab some fresh fruit and enjoy nature's free color show.

Lovina Beach is black volcanic sand. the beaches are exceptionally quiet and peaceful to walk along. There is no beach sellers so no hassle. Restaurants along the beach, to stop fr a quiet drink or a bite to eat. Everyone is always welcome

4.30am got up and hire a boat to go middle of lovina beach. Sun about to rise, time to see the dolphins. You need to bring DSLR in order to capture dolphins image. Lovina beach sand are black in colour. Its because of volcano lava eruption. Overall the beach was awesome. I like it.

Lovina definitely has its draw cards, particularly the proximity to beautiful waterfall treks and sunrise dolphin watching; however there are some aspects to the place that travellers should be prepared for. Firstly, there are far fewer tourists visiting the area than places in the south of Bali and it is obvious that the local tourist industry is starved of customers.... More

a long stretch of volcanic beach.lined with palm trees. Unfortunately the many vendors are quite intrusive. However we did find one of the local fishermen who took us out on his boat to do some fishing and experience the sunset and the following morning to see the dolphins.

We were told, that the price for the ride was fixed among the boats - 100.000 IDR (7-8 USD). Some boats are out for 1,5 hours - others more. Remember to ask. It takes appr. ½ hour to get to the dolphin area (and back ;-)). Also remember to ask for lifevests, as they are not present on all boats.... More
