There are a lot to visit available in the town of Tabanan, and some of these will be useful in getting you to interesting sights in the region. Taxis and private vehicles for hire are thin on the ground here though. Most visitors arrive with a car and driver, in their own hired vehicle or by motorbike, and get around the region in that way.

There are numerous small roads and unmade tracks that lead from the coast road south of Tabanan to the waterfront.

The beaches here are all black sand. The most well known of them, and one with some good accomodation options, is Yeh Gangga. This is well signposted from the main coast about 2.5km past Tabanan, heading west. Be warned though that much of this west coast shoreline is unsafe for swimming.

A small but well maintained centre for research and education into butterflies with some very spectacular species on show.
Who doesn't like butterflies? Best to visit in the early and mid morning when the butterflies are at their most active.

Pura Luhur Batukaru (Batukaru Temple), near Wongayagede village.
One of Bali's key directional temples and a site of pilgrimage for Hindu Balinese. Majestically situated on the slopes of Mount Batukaru since the 11th century, this is an especially sacred site, even by Balinese standards and all visitors must carefully read and abide by the temple rules posted clearly at the entrance. The temple is high on the slopes of the mountain and the often misty, drizzly micro-climate here just adds to its undoubtedly mystical atmosphere.

Taman Ayun at Mengwi
Pura Taman Ayun (Mengwi Water Temple), (2 km west of Mengwi on the road to Abiansemal).
This very pleasing temple was built in 1634 by the King of Mengwi as his family temple. The terraced courtyards of the temple are set in very well maintained grounds, surrounded by man-made waterways and entered over a bridge. Mengwi is about 8km east from the town of Tabanan.

Sangeh Monkey Forest (Bukit Sari), Sangeh (Sangeh village is on the small road that leads from Abiansemal to Petang, just to the north east of Pura Taman Ayun). The macaques here act as guardians of Puri Buki Sari (Bukit Sari Temple).
Legend has it that these monkeys are descendents of the army assembled by the monkey king Hanuman and that the forest here is a fragment of Mount Meru that fell to earth. The temple was built in the 17th century. The monkeys here are as bold as elsewhere in Bali so hang on to your belongings. Sangeh combines well with a vist to Pura Taman Ayun.

Subak Museum (Mandila Mathika Subak), Jl Raya Kediri, Sanggulan village (2 km east of Tabanan town centre).
This museum is dedicated to the famed subak system of unmechanised irrigation which has been in use in Bali since AD 600.

Others like the Alas Kedaton, Tanah Lot Temple, Jati Luwih Rice Terrace, Taman Pujaan Bangsa Margarana (Margarana Memorial Park) are interesting places to visit as well.
