Lovina, North Bali, and disappear dolphins
Well, I think Lovina is a part of Bali that quite unpopular. People know Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua or Dreamland better.
Lovina well known for its wild dolphin show. Not a managed or tricky show, it is naturally shown by the dolphin itself.
I went there moment ago, with the knowledge about Lovina from internet browsing. Everyone post about dolphin they see, and no one says there might me no dolphin. I really hoped that I can see wild dolphins and it haunted me all the way :X
Me and some other participants heading to the sea at 6oclock in the morning. It should be 15-10 minutes sailing we can see the dolphin *that’s what I got from browsing before I went there*. But when I was on the boat, after 30minutes, I still did not see the dolphin, and 5 minutes later the fisherman said ‘No dolphin today’. Then I asked him, ‘The dolphin usually appear everyday, right?’
He said ‘No, madam, sometime the dolphins do not appear, or maybe they appear further, crossing the safe zone’
Then we go back to the shore, bring back our excitement.
I was wondering, why didn’t I see any article about no dolphin at Lovina beach.
If you cannot find wild dolphins, don’t be sad, there’s a hotel, Melka Excelsior Hotel, put dolphins in their pool, so guests can play and swim with them. But this is totally different with what people expect at Lovina. The dolphin in the hotel are trained, just like we watch circus or sea world.
Then, what else about Lovina?
I didn’t try much things there, actually. Just had my holiday mostly in my hotel room after long road to get there. Yeah, Denpasar – Lovina with visiting many places is not a good idea, moreover after long night talking with old friends.
There also some cafe in the wharf, you can go there and have some beer with friends 😉
Me myself, tried a Pujasera (kind of food court in local language), which has so many menus. Starts from Pelecing Kangkung, Fried Chicken, Fried Rice, Soto, and many others.
The price quite cheap, worth to try. The place locates near the main gates of Lovina, if you come from Singaraja, it is on your right, beside a herbal store. Sorry I didn’t take the picture, but there’s only one pujasera on the right side from Lovina’s main gate.
But, even without the wild dolphins, you can still see coral reefs, one of the beauty of Indonesia. You can take pictures of the colored fishes. Under water camera will provide better result.
