Why East Bali?
While it’s not an administratively defined area, East Bali can geographically be defined as a stretch of land going from Mount Batur to the Southern tip of Semarapura. It is bordered by Bangli in its Southern tip, mountains in the center, and Singaraja to the north. Most of East Bali is under the regency of Karangasem. This area is particularly hilly compared to most other areas, as three mountains cover a large part of the land. These mountains are Mount Agung, Mount Lempuyang, and Mount Batur. Despite this, there are also a lot of beach attractions that you can visit.
In East Bali, you can find things to be more laid-back and relaxed than other more famous and hip areas such as South Bali. Tourists do come here often, but in the end, you’ll find living here is much more slow-paced compared to Denpasar, Canggu, and Kuta. Another thing that is special about East Bali is access to awesome getaways where you can rejuvenate yourself. Boats from ports in East Bali going to places such as Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and the Gili Islands are much more accessible to you than other areas. If you want to go to one of the islands
All in all, East Bali is perfect for you who is looking for a private getaway, tucked behind the many rice fields, treelines, and mountains stretching all over the land. It is also perfect for those of you who love to take Island trips often.
