Pemuteran fishing village

One hour taxi ride from Munduk – rather scary in some places- mainly due to different spatial awareness to what I’m used to – brings me to Pemuteran in the north west, a very small village.

Everyone greets me as i walk around and I observe the many hens with their chicks – keeping them close – the baby pig which is getting ready for the next ceremony.

Amazing how much you can fit on a scooter. Sacks of rice or cloves, ladders, pushbikes, and above we have cushions.

Save the coral
They’ve made a coral reef here and there’s good snorkelling with colourful corals and many fish close to shore.
