When in the park a must-do is a visit the Beautiful Building ((picture far right)  totally made from wood. Several floors to climb but the view from the top is truly something to behold. Plan a lunch at PANTAI RESTAURANT in the park down at Sentigi Beach is a small Cafe/Restaurant featuring mouthwatering seafood dishes and a barbecue grill. Guests dine on the wooden deck with the gentle waves playing beneath their feet, by the beach or in secluded gazebos intimately located within the mangrove maze. Mind you, there is nothing like taking it easy - after all you are on holidays, so lounging around on the beach, or just take a casual stroll following the wooden path to a "swing -type jetty" sitting on the jetty and just dangling your toes in the water, taking in the small fish darting around the corals.  Find a seat in the shade at the cafe and enjoy a cappuccino, you can take it all in at your own pace. Yes, you are on holidays!

The village of Pemuteran is surrounded by temples. Among the most notable are Pura Agung Pulaki, Pura Pabean and Pura Melanting. To the east of Pemuteran Viallage, the templese located in separate places in this area form what is known as the Pulaki Temples Complex. The complex is centered at the Pura Agung Pulaki, while 6 other temples known as its pesanakan or families are Pura Pabean, Pura Kerta Kawat, Pura Melanting, Pura Belatungan, Pura Puncak Manik and Pura Pemuteran, According to local beliefs, the 7 temples represent the Hindu's concept of the Sapta Loka and Sapta Parala or 7 layers of the universe 

Pura Pabean sitting enchantingly on a small hill on the shore overlooking the picturesque coast of Pemuteran. While the view is already a pleasure on its own, the architectural feature is equally magnificent. With, two gigantic dragon sculptures (Naga Anthaboga and Naga Basuki) decorating  the main entrance, the temple displays  an unusual blend of Balinese culture and Chinese decorations. 
The Temple is said to have been dedicated to the ancestors of the early seafarers from China and other  countries visiting Bali. The name Pabean itself is said to bederived from  the word “bea” , which in Balinese (and Bahasa Indonesia) means “customs” and is closely related to customs activities on sea traders in the port. Thus, this temple is frequently visited by ethnic Chinese living in Bali and local fishermen and seafarers.
