Early morning set off Pemuteran, in the northwest of the island. This laid-back coastal village has become popular with visitors due to its waterfront resorts and the extreme natural beauty of the surrounding area – both inland and at sea. It is also home to the largest artificial biorock reef project, a marine conversation effort that is not only extremely effective but is also creating unusual and beautiful underwater art.
On arrival get yourself prepared for a diving trip to the underwater Temple, which is a project initiated locally as an additional to a reef conversation project funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAid). The temple is located at depths of about 15 meters and 29 meters. Marine life has made the temple its home, creating a magical man made reef garden. You’ll be treated to a myriad of fish and maybe even turtles swimming among the stone statues of Buddha set behind an ornate gateway. Return to hotel in the late afternoon.
