Top Things to do in Nusa Dua
Nusa Dua is an elite tourist area located about 25 km from Denpasar. Translated from Indonesian, “Nusa Dua” means “two islands”. Once the 2 islands really broke away from Bali as a result of tectonic activity. In the late 1970s, the government carried out a project to reunite separated shreds of land with Bali, making them a single territory using the embankment.
In this paradise, everything is subordinated to the convenience of tourists: the best hotels, various cafes and restaurants, shops and entertainment for every taste. Here is a list of important events that must be done in Nusa Dua so that your vacation leaves only the best memories.
From November to March, surfers come to Nusa Dua to catch their wave. Almost every hotel has an ebb and flow schedule. Numerous schools offer rental boards and the services of experienced instructors to help beginners tame the water element. You can also go to Kuta for excellent surfing.
TAN ON BEAUTIFUL BEACHES
Local beaches are considered the best on the island, huge boulders protect them from the wind and large waves, so families with young children will be especially comfortable here. The entire coastline is divided between hotels that carefully monitor its cleanliness. There is no obvious border between the hotel territories, so guests of the resort can choose any place they like. Video review of one of the beaches of Nusa Dua:
The best time for swimming is from 09.00 to 15:00. Then the tide begins and you can swim comfortably only in secluded bays.
