Discover the untouched beauty that awaits in the West Bali National Park, a verdant gem located at Bali’s westernmost point. This national park showcases a rich tapestry of lush forests, mountain ranges, crystal-clear waters, and unspoiled beaches. It’s not just the scenery that will leave you in awe, but also the diverse wildlife that calls this park home. The park is renowned as the sanctuary of the rare and beautiful White Bali Starling, a bird species endemic to this island of the gods.

Sprawling across 19,002.89 hectares, which includes both land and water, the national park is an amalgam of diverse habitats – rainforests, dry savannas, acacia scrubs, and lowland forests. Encircling the Prapat Agung Peninsula, it’s adorned with stretches of protected beach, offshore coral reefs, and the Menjangan, an island renowned as a diving destination.

The park teems with life, hosting about 160 bird species, including the near-extinct Bali Starling. Over the years, this park has become an epicenter for captive breeding and re-introduction efforts to save this species from extinction. Apart from birds, the park is home to various fauna like the Wild Bull, Barn Swallow, Black-naped Oriole, and Leopard Cat. It also shelters endangered flora such as Pterospermum diversifolium, Antidesma bunius, and Lagerstroemia speciosa.

The Marine reserve, consisting of the cape shores and several sanctuary islands, brims with coral reefs. It boasts a high biodiversity in a relatively small marine area with 110 species of corals. Menjangan Island, known for its superb reefs, is a popular spot among diving enthusiasts.

West Bali National Park, from its dense jungles to its deep waters, truly epitomizes the natural splendor of Bali. Most visitors arrive from Lovina or Pemuteran along the north coast road or from the south via Gilimanuk harbor. The park’s offices at Cekik village or Labuan Lalang provide information, permits, and guides. Contact details are available for further information.
