Singaraja Travel Guide

Steeped in history and culture, the pretty town of Singaraja is a good place to spend a day or two for those taking the time to really get to know Bali.

The town is surrounded by natural beauty such as lush forest, rolling hills and mountains, making it a good place for hiking. For those interested in Bali’s unique history, Singaraja is a real treasure trove of information, and the large and lovely museum and library is a great place to spend a few hours.

Lovina Beach is just a short bus or bemo ride from Singaraja and a good daytrip destination. Although the black volcanic sand is not good for sunbathing, the beach is worth visiting near the end of the day, just in time to watch the spectacular sunset and enjoy barbecued fresh fish at one of the beachfront restaurants.

Getting There & Away

Getting to Singaraja is pretty simply as it is just a 3-hour bus ride from Ngurah Rai International Airport, which is located just outside the city of Denpasar. There are regular buses from Denpasar to Singaraja as well as surrounding towns and cities such as Lovina and Pemuteran.
