Pantai Tanjung Sanghyang


This beautiful bay, unofficially named Mushroom Bay after the mushroom corals offshore, has a crescent of bright white beach. By day, the tranquillity can be disturbed by banana-boat riders or parasailers. Otherwise, this is a dream beach. The most interesting way to get here from Jungutbatu is to walk along the trail that starts from the southern end of the main beach and follows the coastline for a km or so. Alternatively, take a Taxi or a motorbike from Jungutbatu.


Jungutbatu Beach


The beach here, a mostly lovely arc of white sand with clear blue water, has views across to Gunung Agung in Bali. The pleasant seawall walkway is ideal for strolling, especially – as you’d guess – at sunset. Floating boats save the scene from being idyllic cliché. The once redolent odour of drying farmed seaweed is fading away as all available land is turned over to tourism.


Pura Puseh


At the north end of town where the island’s main road passes, you can ascend a long stone staircase to Pura Puseh, the village temple. It has great views from its hilltop location.
