Done snorkeling for an hour, we rested a while on the beach. I uttered my astonishment on how clear the water is, and how big the size of the fishes are (well, nothing beats the fish size that Mumun has seen at Bunaken, North Sulawesi). Too bad the fishes aren’t so diverse. Made said that if you wanna see more diversity, you should go diving and get closer to the shipwreck. Well, lucky you, divers! (Made said diving apparels are for rent there for US $30.)
Our friend Edo was coming to join us in the trip. Our meeting point was at Lovina beach, northwest part of the island. We drove the whole 1,5 hours to Lovina. It was easy to navigate, just take the main road all the way.
Then, satisfying our need for some rest and relaxing time, we decided to just hang around and have some drink at one of the cafes by the beach called Illy Cafe. I was curious how arak tastes like, and so I ordered a glass of arak mixed with honey, which cost Rp 12,000. It was.. warm inside my throat and tummy, and really fit the cool weather :)
Coffees there cost Rp 25,000, liquor coffee Rp 50,000, Aqua (the most notable bottled mineral water brand) Rp 6,000.
Before it got too dark, we decided to take off and back to the south.
Kerobokan – where we stayed
This is where we stayed. Room rent was only Rp 100,000 for a week (!), thanks to Bondy. He lives at a rent room whose owner also owns another building of rent rooms next to Bondy’s.
