GILIMANUK BAY - JEMBRANA - BALI
 
Gilimanuk's beaches are truly pristine, and there is a wide range of them: coral beaches, white and black sand beaches, and mangrove forest. The beauty of the underwater coral awaits anyone willing to dive in and go for snorkelling. There are two small islands in the bay, which are barely more than sandbars - Pulau Kalong (Bat Island) and Pulau Burung (Bird Island). There is also a museum containing pre-Hindu archeology. The villages around Gilimanuk contain a mixture of Balinese, Javanese, Madurese and Bugis architecture unique to Bali. No less beautiful are the various boats belonging to these ethnic groups.

Further south, at Candikusuma, there are two temples dedicated to the legendary figure of Dang Hyang Nirartha - Indra Kusuma temple and Taman Sumur Bulus. Locals tell how in 1897 two Dutch officers were attracted to the place when they saw a light coming from the earth. It turned out to be a kris (a supernatural dagger). Candikusuma beach is known for its beautiful black sand and the gentle hills permeating the beach.

Inland from Melaya are the parallel Christian communities of Palasari (Catholic) and Blimbingsari (Protestant), built at the beginning of the century in a settlement area for Balinese who had converted to Christianity. Hills and paddy fields surround the villages. Their uniqueness, however, lies in the cultural cocktail present in the churches, which mix both Gothic and Balinese architectural styles.
