Tabanan is one of Bali's most fertile and picturesque regions. Here, the landscape ranges from volcanic mountains and lush rice paddies to beautiful powder soft black beaches overlooking the Indian Ocean. Tanah Lot Temple, one of Bali's most sacred and most visited temples is just a short drive away. Five kilometers east of Tabanan, in the Abiantuwung village, is a famous dance school where both Balinese and foreigners can take classes. Also close by in Kerambitan is the Royal Stable run by a local noble family and home to six well-maintained and trained horses.
