On one side of the road, you get the ocean in every shade of blue imaginable.

      The blue meets black sand beaches where an armada of jukungs (fishing boats) await their fishermen. From the black sand, you can swim out to some of the best snorkeling reefs in Bali. On the other side of the road, it is the jungle book where the lushness lives.
