Lake Beratan, Tabanan

4.5
#1 of 15 in Parks in Tabanan
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.

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.
