Coconuts Bali News

Coconuts Bali is the leading English source of local news in Bali, Pulau Dewata, Island of the Gods and we operate exclusively online. We run up to date news stories on a daily basis, from across the island, covering a number of relevant issues such as crime to health to transportation to urban development. From Badung in the south to Buleleng in the north, from Jembrana in the west, to Karangasem in the east, and everything in between (we see you Ubud), our scope is literally island-wide. We especially love breaking those quirky stories that you would find in the metro news section of your local paper. Cows invading the main road? On it! Super old human skulls uncovered in some random village? We’re on it! No one else is really translating those stories from bahasa Indonesia over to English in Bali—except for us. Meanwhile, if there is a big international story that the foreign press is actually reporting on (usually involving Australians or other bule (foreigners) in trouble with the law in Bali) we are also all over it, running updates at lightning speed, and aggregating all the most important slices of what is happening. And about the net, of course we are on top of all that is viral and buzzed about on social media when it comes to this island. Seriously, we live on Bali social media, which happens to be dominated by Facebook and Instagram over here. Get your Bali scoop here, you heard it here first.
