Perancak - fishing boat

30 km from Dajuma, the peaceful village of Loloan harbors an amazing history. It was settled by natives from Sulawesi, Kalimantan and Malaysia. They landed on Bali West coast on board of their unique Bugis to escape from the Dutch oppression. Those refugees soon became an important community of fishermen. The traditional jukung and sampan have been sailing off shore Negara, Rambut Siwi , Medewi and Pekutatan for the last 350 years. Their fishing technique requires two Bugis (boats). One of them is equipped with a captain chair raised 10 meters above sea level to locate the fishes. A net attached between the two boats catches them. These colorful Bugis became one of West Bali unique treasures.
