If you ever heard about ‘subak’, it is the biggest achievement of Balinese culture in agriculture. Balinese put the rice field as part of the daily life system. From ‘subak’ they learn about life, about tolerance, about social responsibility, about unity, about nature
conservation, and about their responsibility in nature and human relationship. Subak is the name of water management (irrigation) system for paddy fields on Bali island, Indonesia. For Balinese, irrigation is not simply providing water for the plant’s roots, but water is used to construct a complex, pulsed artificial ecosystem. Paddy fields in Bali were built around water temples and the allocation of water is made by a priest. Exploring paddy fields in Jatiluwih means to learn, how Balinese live in harmony with nature.
Lovina is located in North Bali about 2,5 – 3 hours driving from denpasar, Kuta and airport. The whole stretch of coast here is fringed by quite narrow black sand beaches, which are accessed by a multitude of small lanes which run perpendicular to the east-west coast road. The beaches are generally safe for swimming, and the waters of Bali’s north coast, in direct contrast to the crashing surf of the south, are relatively calm.
Diving, snorkelling and dolphin watching are the main activities, but perhaps above all else, this is an area in which to relax and take in a very slow, traditional pace of life. It can get a little crowded in July and August, but outside that peak season, this is a quiet part of the island.
