Villa Bali Breeze is located in the quiet and picturesque north of the island of Bali, separated from the busy tourist south by a series of ancient volcanoes, covered with tropical rainforests, with many deep cut rivers, beautiful waterfalls and crater lakes. The drive from the airport of the Balinese capital Denpasar to Lovina is going through this mountain landscape with beautiful views, including on the Balinese sacred mountain Gunung Agung, which you probably have seen already from the plane.
North Bali still features the colourful Hindu culture
In North-Bali you can still find the real Bali with intact baroque temples, traditional villages, traditional outrigger fishing boats and beautifully dressed Balinese on their way to a ceremony or a cremation. The beaches of the Bali Sea are known for the dark, almost black volcanic sand and pink flowers, sometimes growing up to the surf. In North Bali you can still find the authentic Bali with old temples, historic villages, traditional outrigger boats and beautiful dressed Balinese women on their way to a ceremony or an open air cremation.
