The south side of the island is renowned for high cliffs, panoramic views, blue seas and beaches accessible only by boat. Our package includes: hotel or harbour pick up and drop off; tour by car or scooter; experienced, knowledgeable guide; bottled water.
Located at the centre of the island and 524 metres above sea level, this is the highest point on the island. Set at the end of the road, Pura Puncak Mundi is a temple worth visiting. Wearing a sarong is a must but it is well worth it to see the ornate architecture. Monkeys are sometimes spotten at this location but be warned they are not friendy.
Climb down 700 blue steps set against the cliff will bring you to the natural spring which feeds into pools and then into the ocean. Take a swim at the bottom or just rest for a while. enjoy the magnificent scenery and take a photo or two.
For nature lovers who enjoy flora, this is the place for you. A cool, shady paradise that encases the last vestiges of indigenous rainforest on the island.
Local culture specifies that men and women bathe separately so there are two sets of pools, the larger “mens pool” and lower down towards the ocean a “womens pool”. Bring your swimming attire and enjoy a dip in the shade.
Completing the walk will bring you out on the sandy beach, another great place to take photos of the rock formations in the sea. Alternatively one can climb through a narrow opening in the rock near the beach and walk right into a new bay with stunning cliff walls.
Further along from Tembeling forest the road traverses along the limestone cliff tops which lead to unprecedented panoramic views over the southern ocean. Unique rock formations stand out of the ocean with wild seas continuously washing up against them. This is a landscape photographers paradise. Pease exercise caution as you are responsible for your own safety here.
CAR TEMPLE (PURA PALUANG)
Set 200 metres above sea level on limestone cliffs Pura Paluang dominates the skyline and has a stunning backdrop of cliffs and blue seas.
The temple was built by the people of Karang Dawa. The car sculptures were put there in remembrance of the old dutch colonial cars they witnessed passing by, possibly between the years 1920 - 1940. The cars were venerated and were aspirations of a better future.
