3Permuteran is definitely worth it for snorkeling and diving the reefs, but you might enjoy the mountainous area of north Bali for its awesome views and cool climate. For north Bali, the most favored areas are Singaraja, Lovina and the north central mountains.

5I went to Pemuteran for the skin-diving off Deer Island ( Pulau Menjangan) after hearing it was
some of the best on Bali. A couple of the sites are rated tops and I was impressed- even having
just been to Bunaken Island off Sulawesi. Just be aware that this part of the north coast is dry
and has a desert-like ecology (some people have lush jungle in mind for their tropical holiday.)
The beach at Pemuteran bay has an ongoing reef-restoration project with good progress to report.
Pemuteran is a kick-back place great for 3 days or so of beachside R&R.

7I would never visit Pemuteran unless I was a diver. Menjangan is nice wall diving but during peak times is packed with boats. Secret Bay was really nice muck diving. However, I much prefer Tulamben. Liberty is a nice wreck and the area has some good coral on the other side of the bay (plus dive prices are much lower).
If you go, know that a large number of mesjids have been built in Permuteran over the past year so be careful where you stay- the azan can be very loud when your hotel is next to the mesjid.

8I agree Tulamben is nice, but only for one night/two days, there's nothing else here!
