Sights

At the southern fringe of Negara, Loloan Timur is a largely Bugis community (originally from Sulawesi) that retains 300-year-old traditions. Look for a few distinctive houses on stilts, some decorated with wooden fretwork.

You can see bull-race practices Sunday mornings at a football field near Delod Berawan. To reach the area, turn off the main Gilimanuk−Denpasar road at Mendoyo and go south to the coast, which has a black-sand beach and irregular surf.

Perancak is the site of Nirartha's arrival in Bali in 1546, commemorated by a limestone temple, Pura Gede Perancak. Ignore the sad little zoo nearby and go for a walk along the fishing harbour.
