Nusa Dua is one of the most luxurious resort areas of Bali. You might never want to leave the confines of your gorgeous beach resort. But if you do feel like it, there’s quite a lot to do here. You can explore the Bali National Golf Club with its 18-hole golf course and top-notch Balinese clubhouse or you can explore the coastline astride a camel, why not book a camel safari at the stretch outside Hilton Bali Resort? Here are 5 things to do in Nusa Dua Bali
Indulge in watersports at Pantai Mengiat Beach
Pantai Mengiat or Nusa Dua Beach is the main public beach in Nusa Dua. The calm water near the shore is perfect for swimming and snorkeling while the waves further beyond will tempt you to try surfing. A glass-bottomed boat ride or fishing trip might be a great idea if you don’t want to get wet. Even more, photography enthusiasts will enjoy capturing local fishermen and the sea views from the Nusa Dua promenade.
Marvel at the Water Blow
This enormous blowhole at the southern part of Nusa Dua offers stunning views of waves crashing against the cliff and erupting into the sky. All those in the immediate vicinity (including your camera) are bound to get drenched! However, it’s advisable not to get too close to Water Blow Bali, and there are benches where you can sit and enjoy the spectacular sight.
Be entertained by the Devdan Show
The 90-minute Devdan Show is a unique cultural attraction of Nusa Dua. Subtitled ‘Treasure of the Archipelago’, the show tells a compelling story of two children who discover a treasure chest filled with the jewels of Indonesian history. Electrifying music, acrobatics, pyrotechnics, light displays, and dramatic costumes and props make this nightly event a must-watch.
Visit Geger Temple and beach
Perched atop a cliff overlooking Geger Beach, Pura Geger is the main temple in Nusa Dua. From the temple, you can enjoy wonderful views of the sea and the mountains beyond. While the shrines within the complex are generally closed, exploring the grounds is also an enjoyable experience. From the southern end of the temple, you can walk to the sea, where the water is said to be holy.
Immerse yourself in history and art at Museum Pasifika
Museum Pasifika houses art by European artists who settled in Bali, among others. With 350 paintings from 25 countries, along with around 250 historical artifacts, this museum is a treasure trove of art and culture. Apart from the permanent exhibitions, there are temporary ones as well.
Most resorts in Nusa Dua offer a host of Bali watersports like sea-walking, fly-boarding, parasailing, jet-skiing, and banana boat rides. If you have more time on hand, take a boat to Serangan Island, where you can see turtles being released. The island is also home to many birds, snakes, and lovely beaches.
