Which Family Pod? Toddling around ; Energetic explorers
Tiny Tip:Dolphin trips are Lovina's special tourist attraction. There is no evidence that the dolphins are harmed by all the attention, but there is some suggestion that the boats are having to go further afield to see fewer dolphins. If you are still keen then buy a ticket for the 6-8am trip the day before. The boats can be rickety canoe like long boats, so a little life jacket is a MUST.
The Air Banjar (Panjar) hot springs
Located West of Lovina is an enchanting hot springs (sulphuric water) with stone carved mouths gushing water among a lush garden setting. With three public and one private pool. This is a fun alternative for a splash about.
