Bali Barat National Park

Bali Barat National Park, is situated in two regencies: Jembrana and Buleleng (Singaraja). The entrance to the Jembrana side of the park is located in Malaya, on the Denpasar-Gilimanuk mainroad, about 110 km from Denpasar. A visit to this place is advised to those looking for pristine tropical nature. The park is the last natural habitat for the endangered jalak putih (Leucopsar rotschildi), as only less than 50 heads are known to be left in its natural environment.


West Bali National Park in Indonesian as Taman Nasional Bali Barat is located on the north western side of Bali, Indonesia. The park covers around 770 square kilometres (300 sq mi), which is approximately 10% of Bali's total land area. To the north, it includes a 1,000-metre (3,300 ft) long beach, reef and islets. A seaport at Gilimanuk is west of the park, and the village of Goris is to the east. The National Park can be reached by roads from Gilimanuk and Singaraja, or by using ferries from Ketapang, Java.

Even though ornithologists can now breed the bird in captivity, the wild jalak putih that are found in the natural habitat are threatened by extinction because of poaching. The park also harbours ruminantias such as bantengs (Bos sonaicus) or deer-like menjangans. The National Park covers a wide range of natural environment, from mangrove coastal forest to African-like savannah and rain forests.

There are several habitats in the National Park, a savanna, mangroves, montane and mixed-monsoon forests, and coral islands. The center of the park is dominated by remnants of four volcanic mountains from Pleistocene era, with gunung Patas at 1,412 metres (4,630 ft) its highest elevation.
From adventure to ecotourism, Buleleng has them all. The national park collects the wild west mysteries of nature where the long-extinct Balinese tiger or rare white Balinese starling makes the park their home. The park is comprised of Montana forest, coastal swamps and marine water.

The area of Taman Nasional Bali Barat (West Bali National Park) situated at the Edge of north Bali Island is the stretch of green ground along the 150 km road that link Gilimanuk and Denpasar or Gilimanuk and Singaraja. It is located between district of Gerokgak in Buleleng regency and district of Melaya in Jembrana regency. It is reachable from Gilimanuk as the main entrance to West Bali, and from Denpasar. This 77,000-hectare park was established in 1941.
