    Grrat drive around Pemuteran & beaches
    We had Tawan (+62 853-3360-1576) to bring us around Pemuteran, drive and guide us. The sea and beach around Labuhan Lalang, was great. Tawan is flexible, outgoing, responsible, and safe-driving man. See you soon mate. From Singapore.

    Heaven on Earth! Check out the coral reefs
    I just returned from 4 days in Pemuteran. The beach is beautiful and the town is small and welcoming. It is a 3+ hours drive from Ubud, and well worth the peace, beauty, tranquility, and interaction with locals, a priceless journey. You won't want to leave.

    So relaxing - the perfect beach
    The beach at Pemuteran is a large bay. it is a serene sandy beach, with volcanic (grey) sand. The sea is calm and free of strong currents and waves - perfect for swimming and snorkelling. It has rocks at either end of the bay, which are exposed at low tide (beware of the sea urchins). It is unique in that it has coral reefs within 50m of the shore. The reefs are protected no-fishing zones, and full of friendly curious colourful fish. It is also home to the Biorock project, the largest reef restoration in the world. There are a couple of beach warungs but generally there are only a few people on the beach no hawkers or massage huts unlike beaches in the south of Bali. There is also very little rubbish in the water or on the beach, which makes a rarity for swimming and walking on the beach.

Pemuteran Beach Activities and boat tours
Our best recommendation for a great activity in Pemuteran is to use Kadek Anna ( whatsapp +62 812-3906-7176 ) He is a captain and owner of a local boat.
He offers: Morning trip at sunrise - snorkeling trip on local reefs - sunset trip - trip to a white coral island - or just a sailing trip where you experience nature from the lake side - Fish trip
Everything is possible, just contact Kadek.

A beautiful clean beach with some restaurants.
Before coming to Bali, we read about beaches having lots of garbage on the but we’re pleasantly surprised to find no trash on this beach. The sand is a beautiful mix of volcanic and light sand.
Bio-Rock Is meters from the shore and well worth the trip. Just beautiful.

stayed in Pemuteran for two nights three week ago,and one afternoon visited here for sunset,but that day no good sunset.actually it is the second time i came here,the first time almost ten years ago. Pemuteran beach is always quiet,not crowded.there are many cafes and restaurants along the beach,you can relax here, the sand is black colour. you can walk along the beach,and see some firshermen doing their job. there are some cute dogs on the beach.you can even ride a horse here,i think it is an activity provided by the hotel nearby.recommend Pemuteran beach to those who stay here.

My brother wanted to visit a beach marginally more off the beaten track, and Pemuteran turned out to be a good shout. We loved the rustic feel of the place, the marvellous volcanic sand and the stunning hills surrounding it. There are a few hotels on the beach itself serving good food and drinks, and there are lots of opportunities for snorkelling, diving and more. Although it’s not a long beach, if you’re happy to climb over some rocks it’s long enough for a leisurely 1 to 1.5 hour walk and the same back. We actually arranged a trek through Bali Barat National Park along with snorkelling off of Menjangan Island whilst we were here using the details off of another trip advisor site, and although it was a touch pricey by Bali standards was super easy to arrange and was a fabulous day out.

In terms of the weather, we went in the low season which has risks of rain and monsoon. Although the weather forecasts threatened thunderstorms, it turned out to be a mixture of sunny and overcast at times but always warm and pleasant enough to be sunbathing in our swim wear.

With all this going for it, why am I only giving it three stars? Well, that’s because of the single use plastic lining the beach. It was very noticeable on the first and second days we were here, but on the third day, due to the change in sea current I think, there was a very high volume of trash in the sea and on the beach. I feel sorry for Bali, as this trash is washing up from other parts of Indonesian, and this trash is primarily created by Indonesians. It includes noodle packets, sweet packets, drink cups, polystyrene, and a lot of plastic bags. Although a lot of people were snorkelling off the beach and I did that too, for me when it was bad it was just too much. The marine life is wonderful, but I just couldn’t enjoy it whilst seeing the trash in the water, not to mention how sad it made me feel. By Bali standards there may be less trash than elsewhere in the water than elsewhere, but it was enough to spoil the experience for me.

Overall, I would recommend it as the trash was not all that bad on the first two days and there is more of it in low season, but it’s something every visitor needs to be conscious of.

The beach is quiet, but unfortunately the beach and sea bottom shows one of Bali's biggest problems. The resorts daily clean the rubbish, but the beaches that do not have 'an owner' make you so sad!! The problem is really huge and starts where people do not use bins to collect their carbage. Also in the mountains you see so much plastic in the landscape. In raining seasons the plastic flows to the rivers and seas.
