North Bali Reef Conservation was set up in Tianyar village, where Ketut our founder grew up. Volunteer accommodation is just a stone’s throw away from the beach with a perfect view out to the ocean. We construct our artificial reef structures on this beach under the shade of tall palm trees. We then deploy the structures directly out from where we have built them in an area between 5 and 9 meters depth. Tianyar is in the region of Karangasem and is three hours from Bali’s capital Denpasar. Visiting the fishing village of Tianyar is a unique cultural experience because unlike the South of Bali, it is untouched by tourism. It is also a great site to call home as you travel around Bali with good condition road links both north and south. Many volunteers choose to take day trips to feel mentally and culturally enriched at Balinese Hindu temples such as Lempuyang temple, to cool off in waterfalls such as Aling-Aling or to hike to the top of Mt Batur and witness the breathtaking Balinese sunrise.
