If you are on the north coast of Bali then Pemuteran is a great wee place to spend a few days- loads of cheap (but good quality) accommodation, really nice beach and plenty dive companies offering trips to the nearby Menjangan Island which is awesome.

I've never liked sitting on the beach, but there is something soothing about this area. Snorkeling or diving between sips of a beverage from one of the hotel lounge chairs was pretty good. Not a tourist trap like other places. Pemuteran is an oasis.

Another reasonable Bali beach. One end was clean the other littered with plastic and rubbish. The water was a little murky. There are several medium size hotels along the beach that offer restaurants and bars beside the sand. Behind the beach sits a small town...More

From the main road to this beach is challenging. Pemuteran Beach is located in the west Bali national park and very worth it to visit. I went to the beach on sunday (national day) and guess what ? Less tourists, clean, and very amazing!

Free access through narrow streets and really lovely in the pictures, that don't reveal some garbage.

Don't be put off by the black sand, it’s the setting that makes this beach so unique. Backed by high hills which are stunning and low rise hotels of varying sizes (but no high rise, ugly buildings). This is a working beach so you’ll see...More

First visit after a short stay in lovina. What a lovely quiet unpretentious laid back village by the sea. There's nothing to do in the way entertainment so if you need external stimuli, stick to kuta n seminyak. But if you want rustic, laid back,...More

Village to rest, dive and feel yourself in calm loop. Friendly people. Nice tours. Healthy foods. No way to strees. 👌👌

It is a very narrow beach with BLACK sand. I came from Java and wanted to see the North of Bali before heading to Ubud but it was not worth my time. It is a very VERY poor beach, nothing special. It looks very bad...More
