Les Village in which La Kubu is located is special -- it offers the sea, the hillsides spring and waterfalls, and mountain forest and caves. Its local Hindu culture is strong and the ebb and flow of life here is governed by the tides, the moon, and ever-recurring Hindu ceremonies.
La Kubu is only 200 meters away from the sea where you can have a leisurely walk or jog on the elevated and tiled seafront promenade. You can swim with the local villagers and snorkel the fringing reefs a few meters away from the coast.
Link up with Sea Communities eco-tourism program and you can scuba dive, plant corals and do coral reef rebuilding, teach English to village kids, go pelagic fishing at night and ornamental fishing in the morning.
Walk around the village and experience its many temples, its public bath, morning wet market. It's hillsides is a veritable orchard -- rambutans, coconuts, cloves, mangoes interspersed with the fragrant and beautiful frangipanis.
The village pride, Yeh Mempeh Waterfalls, set in a caldera-like forested enclosure, is 20-30 minutes walk away from La Kubu (or 10 minutes if you motorbike part of the way). Here you can have a torrential bathe and pounding water massage.
