One of these enchanting traditions will take place along some of the island's most beautiful beaches when the Banyu Pinaruh ritual takes place on 22 January 2017.

On the day of Banyu Pinaruh, all Balinese head to beaches, rivers, springs or other water resources to cleanse themselves both physically and spiritually. The ritual starts at dawn around 05.30 in the morning just as the first rays of the sun begin to appear, when people start to walk to the beach as symbol of embracing the spirit and energy of a new day. Just like other rituals on the Island, there will be chanting of prayers as well as offerings of flowers and other gifts to the gods.
