Lovina Beach is a coastal area on the northwestern side of Bali Island, Indonesia. The coastal strip stretches from 5 km (3 ml) west of Singaraja City to 15 km (9 ml) west. Lovina Bali area contains several small villages (Anturan, Banyualit, Kaliasem, Kalibukbuk, Pemaron, Temukus, Tukad Mungga). A famous tourist destination, Lovina still remains quieter in comparison to Bali's southern coast.
- Lovina was named the first resort in the region, established in 1953 by the Balinese writer Anak Agung Panji Tisna (1908-1978). Today the resort operates under the name Lovina Beach Hotel. "Lovina" was word play ("love" and "Indonesia") but the name outgrew the 3-room hotel and was applied to the whole coastline.
- Popular tourist activities include snorkeling, diving, early-morning boat tours for dolphin watching. Dolphin trips usually last about 2 hours, and generally cost around USD 5-20.
- Lovina Beach is a very relaxed destination, ideal for family groups or older travelers who wish to kick back and mingle with the locals. The area gets a little crowded in July-August, but outside peak season, it is a quiet part of Bali.
- There are also many tourist stalls limited to the area between the main restaurant road and the dolphin statue. Open-air bars offer live music (in which guests may participate) and locals often jam with the tourists. Nightly beach volleyball in the car park is another popular activity.
