The North Coast represents some of the more ''untouched'' areas of Bali, with a much more relaxed atmosphere coupled with a more traditional lifestyle. Just a few minutes west of Singaraja, the island's former Dutch Colonial capital, lies Lovina, a lovely village situated on a unique stretch of black sand beach. Here the pace is slow, with little in the way of shops and nightlife. The offshore reefs, and numerous Dolphins inhabiting the clear waters, make this area a very popular destination for divers and those seeking a more ''natural'' escape.
For those in search of an even more laid back destination, 45 minutes to the west of Lovina lies the small island of Menjangan, which provides some of the best diving in Bali. Development here is sparse, as the Bali Barat National Park extends throughout this region. As a result, all hotels in this area are very much influenced by the surroundings,and are very traditional in style.
Further south, on the main coastal road between Denpasar and the sea port of Gilimanuk, sits the town of Negara, part of the larger Jembrana Regency. This is probably one of the least visited parts of Bali, and is famous for its twice-monthly buffalo races. Heading east from there, along the coast road, you will find the quiet coastal villages of Medewi and Balian, with their renowned surf breaks and relaxed atmosphere.
