Sumberkima is in the north west of Bali, close to Barat National Park and Menjangan Island. Gilimanuk, the port to Java is 25 km to the west. This part of Bali is still unspoiled by mass tourism and you will experience more of the real Bali. From this area Hinduism spread all over Bali. You will find some of the oldest and most important temples here.The coastline has several beautiful bays with large areas of shallow reefs.
Sumberkima is a good base for adventures with the sea and the jungle on our doorstep. It is one of the best places in Bali for diving and snorkelling with Menjangan Island and the Biorock project in Pemuteran. One of the safest places to learn to dive and get your PADI. We have a very good dive instructor connected to the retreat.
You can take a boat and go fishing or snorkeling and explore the small islands and the various bays in the area. We have beautiful coral and fish in the bay of Sumberkima.
You can also trek inland and go on a jungle tour or visit the Barat National Park. Check out some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Bali. A great trip is to go over to Java early in the morning and climb Kawa Ijen, a volcano with amazing scenery and sulfur miners that carry 80 kg buckets with sulfur out of the crater. At night you can see the blue fire and then watch sunrise.
However, simply walking around Sumberkima or using a mountain bike is a perfect way to see this part of Bali. Sumberkima offers a great variety in landscape, rice paddies, jungle, beaches, coconut groves and mangrove. And above all wonderful hospitable friendly people.
