Gateway to Bali's lesser-known eastern coastline, Manggis is a taste of untouched Bali that offers island life at its best. The jewel of the Karangasem Regency, Manggis is just 1.5 hours from Denpasar or about 2 hours from Ubud. Here tourist crowds fall away and tall buildings disappear to be replaced by towering trees and thick roots that crowd each other for that beautiful Bali sun. Overlooking the Lombok Strait, Manggis offers the best of both worlds with spectacular countryside punctuated by a coastal edge.
East Bali boasts some of the country's best snorkelling and dive sites bursting with colourful coral and tropical fish. Manggis also offers stunning little beaches and secluded bays looking out over the neighbouring island of Lombok. These perfect panoramas are at their best at sunrise and sunset as the iridescent sea is flooded with a kaleidoscope of colour. Manggis is also home to Gunung Agung, the highest volcano in the country. Revered as the home of the Gods, Mount Agung is an iconic landmark whose western slope features the famous Besakih Temple, Bali's largest and most important temple.
