This area is ready to embrace tourists and show off its hidden gems and claims to have the most picturesque waterfalls in Bali.
This summer would be the perfect time to visit because if you wait too long for this region to invest in tourism, you might find yourself in a crowd on your next trip.
Near the twin lakes is the beautiful, postcard-worthy Banyumala Waterfall. A swimming hole catches the fresh water that constantly flows from above.

This region is home to lush green hills, pristine coastal ecosystems, and the West Bali National Park. There is much to offer visitors here, but not everyone knows this side of Bali.
Visitors can find cafes, hotels, and restaurants here to enjoy, but they are not as crowded as the south side of Bali.
Millions of dollars are being invested to improve the current facilities, but they are not expected to be complete until 2026-2027.
Often known simply as a ferry port, this quaint fishing village is about as laid-back as you can get on Bali’s east side.
