So in theory we have the whole day to get to the west of Bali.
I was wondering what to do with that day. I heard Pemuteran is a great place, but it is also a little bit past Gilimanuk (where we need to be for the boat).
Is it correct that it is about 2 hours drive from Denpasar airport to Pemuteran? If that is the case it would make sense to go there and do some snorkeling maybe.
The next day I don't think we need to take an early boat to Java as I read they are going all day (is that true?) so we have some time then too.
(or will it take a lot of time to get to a hotel near Ijen?) I think I would be fine by just arriving in the end of the afternoon.
If Pemuteran is not a reasonable option: what would you advise? Are there nice things on the route from Denpasar to Gilimanuk? Nice stopovers? A good place to stay the night?
I am a bit torn since two sort of half days are not really that much but on the other hand we could do something nice with them
Also: is it better to arrange a driver for this route? Or can we take a taxi from the airport?
Are there drivers that you can approach at the airport too?
