There are plenty Balinese temples, big and small, in and around Pemuteran area. While they may not be the most beautiful temples you ever see in Bali, some temples in Pemuteran area, like Pura Agung Pulaki and Pura Pabean have a unique character of Balinese Hindu style with Chinese influences.
Visit Pura Agung Pulaki, Pura Pabean, Pura Melanting and Pura Pemuteran, all in the neighbourhood of Pemuteran. Or venture further to Bedugul to visit one of the most famous temples in Bali, the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, a water temple at the shores of Lake Bratan in Bali.
The Gitgit Waterfall (Air Terjun Gitgit), about an hour drive from Pemuteran, is a stunning cascading waterfall, in several stages and in different heights and shapes. It is one of the most famous waterfalls in Bali. The Aling-Aling Waterfall (Air Terjun Aling-Aling), not far from the Gitgit Waterfall, is 35m high and has 4m deep basin at the bottom. The nearby but less known Sekumpul Waterfalls (Air Terjun Sekumpul) are even more spectacular, but needs some trekking into the “wilderness”.
The mountainous and fertile Bali there are plenty of waterfalls to visit. Next to Gitgit, there is a small waterfall near Pemuteran/Sumberkima, the Sing-sing Waterfall, perfect for a half-day trip from the villas. Other interesting objects to visit are the Munduk Waterfall and the hotspring at the Buddhist temple near Banjar.
