The topography of Bali is formed by a mountain chain that stretches from West to East splitting the island into two parts. Medewi is situated on the Western side of this mountain chain looking out toward the Alas Purwo National Park area on the Southern tip of Java. Medewi is a region of Bali that has not been negatively impacted by tourism. It is an area that promotes a harmony between its three main religions of Islam, Hindu and Christian beliefs. Below you will see an area that promotes a relaxed rural, surf and fishing community surrounded by spectacular scenic outlooks.

Tourism to the island can be seen to have begun in the 1920’s as a direct result of a steamship line KPM that  started promoting Bali as a tropical paradise. By the 1930’s Bali was welcoming around one hundred visitors every month. The Island of the Gods today hosts around five million tourists each year. It is an extremely popular holiday destination globally. That said Medewi culture has positively survived the at times, overwhelming consequences that a mass tourism industry can exact. As a visitor traveling from the Southern Regencies you have the feeling of entering a charmed older world environment that is more than welcoming. Time moves very slowly.

Whilst there are a number of industries surrounding the Medewi and Jembrana Regency the most visible is rice and fishing. That said all agriculture throughout Indonesia is managed by a system of water supply known as Subak. The word Subak refers to a unique social and religious institution, that has been formulated in a democratic association of farmers in determining the use of irrigation as a resource predominately, though not limited to, the growing of rice. It is a system of water management that is extremely visible but also must be seen as a concept of life for the Balinese population. It is simply a philosophy derived from the Hindu belief of Tri Hita Karana, meaning “three things cause the creation of happiness and well-being”. Namely the harmonious relationships established between humans and God, between humans and their neighbor and between humans, nature and the immediate environment.
