dolphins, lovina, beachThe center activities in Lovina area is located 10 km from Singaraja Town. Nowadays, Lovina area is becoming the center of tourism activities in north part of Bali and offer many kind of accommodations, restaurants, bars, beach activities, art shops, bank, transportations etc. The accommodations in this area are a available from the star hotel class until small hotel even the home stay for the low budget travelers. As a tourist area and center of tourism in Singaraja, Lovina get the biggest visit from tourist who visiting north part of Bali. It is estimated by 90% from tourist who pay a visit to north part of Bali will in Lovina.

HISTORY
There are no clear sources or evidence hit the name Lovina genesis. Pursuant to the reference of the children from Anak Agung Panji Tisna, the clan of famous Buleleng King that the name of Lovina is given by him which is located in Kaliasem countryside, where at the first time he build a bungalow as a resort. He said that the name of Lovina is taken away from a name of small hotel in India that is lafeina whereabouts he stayed and write the book with the title of Ni Ketut Widhi. This book is translated into some languages. In memory of the hotel name, hence the ownership lands give the Lovina name. but there is also other version that is Lovina name is given caused by its 2 Santen trees are planted by him and grow embracing each other. In this case Lovina is coming from Latin language that mean is loving each other or love. Then Lovina's name is interpreted as abbreviation from Love and Ina and its interpreted as Love to Indonesia.

Lovina is officially located in Kalibukbuk area and covering some countryside like Pemaron, Tukad Mungga, Anturan and Kalibukbuk countryside. A well-known beach at the north coast of the island of God where actually you can see dolphins swimming around and greeting you with their claps and squeaks! It stretches down the whole north coast with small villages likes Kaliasem & Temukukus, Kalibubuk, Anturan, Tukad Mungga, and Pemaron as its main public areas. A stunning sunset seems to be perpetually glowing here and this is also complementarily a great place for water sports. The sand along the beach is grayfish black in color because of the lack of waves and temperate water. This somehow goes with the tranquility the beach offers. As for a sight of the dolphins or a good snorkeling spot, and at a better price, I would suggest for you to take the local service. Make an appointment with him and rent a private boat instead of renting a boats which are already at the beach. Here is brief summary about areas along Lovina beach.

DOLPHINS
Most visitors in Lovina beach in Buleleng in the northern part of Bali, are there for the dolphins. Tourist generally make the trip out to the beach in June, July or August, when the weather is good and the waters blue and clear. The rising number of visitors to the beach is good for the local economy because of the jobs is creates. There are more than 300 dolphins spotting guides I Kaliasem village in Kalibukbuk near Lovina beach. During peak season, nearly all of them are busy taking tourist on trips out to sea. The best time for dolphins spotting is about 6 a.m., so tourist are advised to turn up at about 5:30 a.m. before sunrise dolphins watching is much like fishing in that if one is lucky they will get a "big catch" and see the dolphins up close, but if they are not, they will go home "empty-handed", without seeing so much as a fin. One man returning after a disappointing trip snapped at his guide, "Are you sure there are dolphins here?" the management of the dolphins watching business has also been criticized. Once dolphins are spotted, the boat race into the best position. Many people are satisfied by the experience, but others return from sea complaining the dolphins were chased and cornered by the boats.

The dolphins can become sick from exhaustion after being trailed by the tourist boats, or separated from their pups. Some of the guides acknowledge there are problems with the way in which the trips are conducted, but say there is nothing they can do about it.
