The normally quiet town of Buleleng on the northern coast of Bali will come alive when the highly anticipated annual Buleleng Bali Dive Festival (BBDF) is staged at the Pemuteran Village on the 23-26 October 2016. Among divers, Pemuteran is known worldwide for its uniquely inspiring underwater temple, which is a creative artwork involving coal reef revitalization.
Once a barren underwater ocean landscape devastated by destructive fishing, bleaching and sedimentation, the reefs at Pemuteran Village have now been totally transformed and are the world's largest and most successful reef restoration program, alive with underwater creatures.
The result from collective efforts done by the local community, Pemuteran Bay now glows with bright colourful corals, schools of fish, and counting over 70 separate stunning Biorock reefs. The community is proud that their efforts at coral reef conservation that were done purely with local resources have proven to be a national success that has even garnered international recognition in the form of many national and international awards - namely the prestigious PATA Gold Award, the Equator Prize and the Millennium G20 Award.
