For boats

Lovina is calm and protected bay during the SE monsoon season.  Lovina is a nice small town along the main road, where you can relax, eat good Balinese food, get a drink on the beach and slow down. It is very quiet place comparing to South of Bali.  

APPROACH

 
There are many unlit Fish Attracting Devices (FADs) off  the whole north coast of  Bali.  For this reason, it is not recommended to travel close to that coast at night.
 
C-Maps and other charts could be inaccurate and should not be trusted. The water is clear and reefs are marked well by water colors.
 
Approach from the NW-N-NE.  Watch for a large coastal reef  extends 0.3nm from shore in a NNW direction. Make sure you pass this reef in safe distance.
 
The anchorage area is quite, calm, wide, with no swell, and can hold even 100 boats.  Anchor in the center of  the bay in 10 to 20m of  water (sand). 
 
Position of anchorage (middle):
08 09.608S and 115 01.307E
 
DINGHY LANDING
 
There is a big wooden wharf next to anchorage, you can tie your dinghy there or just go to the beach. Do not approach by dinghy between wharf and dolphin statue, there is a lot of shallow corals. Pass the dolphin statue and land close to the beach bar. Note that during LW deep around head of wharf is about 0.2-0.5 m.
 
BANKS ATM's
 
There are few Banks and ATMs along the main road.
 
WiFi
 
Many bars and restaurants has own free WiFi Spot. Best option for all country is to buy a Telekom SimCard with internet data.
 
PROVISIONING
 
There are a lot of small and medium size groceries, do not expect many products, but all basic is available.
 
FUEL, WATER, LAUNDRY
 
There are few local spider boats which will come to you and offer fuel, water, laundry, bottom cleaning and other services. their prices are reasonable and they deliver goods directly to your boat.  

For crews

The waves are calm and safe for swimming, snorkeling and diving. That's the main attractions.  
There are many attraction in Bali. In the town you can find many tourist offices which offers a lot of tours. You can also rent a car with driver for one or more days and do it on your way.
 
I recommend to get a cooking class in one of the restaurant and learn how to prepare popular Indonesian foods.
 
Eat the dinner in one of many restaurants along the coast. they are good and cheap.
 
Visit 2-3 Buddhist and Hindu Temple.
 
If you like night life you need to go the South of Bali.
 
We did from Lovina 5-days trip by regular bus to Jogjakarta on central Java to visit Borobudur and Prambanan Temple. The ride is long, but this places are worth to visit and Lovina is very safe anchorage to leave the boat unattended.
