Tabanan is a picturesque regency that extends from the remote western coast to central Bali. Slightly off the tourist trail, the bustling namesake town also serves as a gateway to West Bali National Park. From heritage listed rice fields, and mountain vistas to volcanic black sand beaches and some of the island’s best surf breaks, Tabanan has plenty to offer. The magnificent sea temple of Tanah Lot, the looming Mount Batukaru, and the subak fed panoramic rice terraces at Jatiluwih make up the highlights of this lesser-visited region. Tabanan, characterized by a quintessential Balinese charm thanks to traditional villages, makes for a wonderful backdrop. An adventure playground replete with forest trails through coffee plantations and fruit orchards, the region is ideal for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Soak up the breathtaking sceneries on drives through coastal and mountain roads, or unwind in the gorgeous villas and secluded retreats across Tabanan.
