  Bali Barat Park

The Bali Barat National Park covers nearly 20,000ha (49,400ac) of Bali's western tip and 7000ha (17,290ac) of coral reef and coastal waters. Most of the natural vegetation in the park is coastal savanna with deciduous trees which become bare in the dry season. Over 200 species of plants inhabit the various environments. Animals include black monkeys, leaf monkeys and macaques; Java, barking, sambar and mouse deer; squirrels, wild pigs, buffalos, iguanas and pythons. The bird life is prolific, with many of Bali's 200 species represented, including the striking Bali starling. The park's attractions include hot springs, uninhabited Deer Island (which has great diving) and guided jungle treks.

The park's headquarters are at Cekik, near the port of Gilimanuk. Frequent bemos and buses shuttle between Cekik and Gilimanuk, which is connected to Denpasar by bus and to Java by ferry.
