The area is really nice. Rent a scooter to explore mountains and small old traditional villages. Buy some organic coffee and handcrafts. Just enjoy!

This was a great little stop for part of the morning in Bajawa. The village is very clean and quiet, a handful of little kids around and some women doing traditional weaving.

Although the regency does have a beautiful white-sand beach,... More

We hired a scooter for 3 days and covered much of the area (30km out of Bajawa). The area has many small villages some of which have not seen westerners before. The views of the volcano and villages coupled with friendly locals shouting to you on the way is amazing. Get a good camera, 2 batteries and snap all day...... More
