Lovina however, is the most renowned for the dolphins which you can see every morning at dawn during a boat trip. Due to the large population of shrimps at this particularly coastline you will find here year round many dolphins. The boat can be surrounded by dozens of dolphins jumping and playing. If you book a trip, you can arrange to be picked up by a boat in front of the villa. In hotel Melka in Lovina you can actually swim with dolphins.

Around the island you will find many colourful fish and coral and this snorkelling site is also very convenient for children as you can start snorkelling directly from the shore of the island. Also worthwhile is a trip to the East coast of Bali (Tulamben) to dive to the famous American war wreck U.S. Liberty.
