Bats, Beach, and ‘Bali Aga’

Heading down towards Klungkung, we turn off towards Kusamba, a centre of fish processing and salt production on the beach, opposite Nusa Penida.

Our next stop is Pura Goa Lawar, ‘Bat Cave Temple', associated with balance in the environment and the interconnectedness of life. We pray at the temple-cave, which like a huge ear twittering with myriad bats, leads into the hill, and, legend has it, goes all the way to the Mother Temple, at Besakih.

Crossing the road, we complete our visit with some moments of reflection on the beach, looking over towards the island of Nusa Penida.

Continuing towards the toursit centre of Candidasa, we visit the Bali Aga village of Tenganan, where people preserve the practices and traditions of old Pre-Majapahit times, including sacred natural-dyed “Gerinsing” double ikat weaving.

About 15 minutes from Candidasa, we will park and stroll down to a beautiful quiet white sand bay for fresh grilled fish lunch and young coconut, and, if you fancy, a swim. We return by the scenic route, up a quiet lane offering spectacular views of the coast and hills around. (9.00 – 17.30).
