Lake Beratan, Tabanan

#2 of 15 in Parks in Tabanan
Water Body Nature / Park
Fresh air, misty mountains, and a major Shivaite temple make Lake Beratan a rewarding destination in the north-central region. Constructed in the 17th century to honor the river goddess Dewi Danu, this multi-tiered temple remains an iconic image of traditional Bali. The shallow caldera lake sits 1,200 m (4,000 ft) above sea level and provides a tranquil setting for boat rides, picnics, and long walks. The area also boasts several smaller water temples, as well as Indonesia's largest botanic garden. Bring your camera and prepare for cool mountain air by wearing clothing appropriate for higher elevation. By using our Tabanan holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Lake Beratan and other attractions in Tabanan.

  • This is a lovely temple and gardens to walk around in an idyllic setting. There are paddle boats to hire to go out onto the lake. We did not do that though. Lots of photo opportunities at this temple ...  more »
  • The view of the temple is beautiful. Visit in may, allowed us to escape from the influx of tourists for the months of July and August.

Where to stay in Tabanan

Options for accommodations on your Tabanan holiday are as diverse as the geography of the region itself. The town of Tabanan, from which the region takes its name, has a few options, but you're better off looking elsewhere if you want to see the area's best sights. Head up north and stay in an eco-resort near Mount Batukaru, or base yourself in the old town of Mengyi for easy access to the Taman Ayun temple complex. If you want something more cultural, go for a homestay among the region's central rice paddy fields. While Tabanan's coastline remains less developed than that of many other regions in Bali, you can find some excellent luxury beach resorts, especially around Kerambitan.
