Nusa Dua Beach
is one of the famous beach in Bali, Nusa Dua (meaning Two Islands) is the name of the peninsula that extends off the southern tip island of Bali, hosting a pristine complex of luxury hotels. A heavy concentration of big name international hotels lines the beautiful white sand shore that offers excellent swimming conditions in a protected lagoon. Located ten kilometres from the international airport, Nusa Dua is designed as an enclave of the most sumptuous and luxurious hotels in the world dedicated to big-spender tourists.
It is an idyllic place for honeymooner and those who are bringing the entire family, the white sand and shallow water are ideal for children to play in the sea while lifeguards keep a watchful eye. The roads in the area are well maintained and 24/7 security staff guard two entrance gates with full security procedures for every incoming and outgoing guest. It is no wonder then that year round Nusa Dua is an official venue for international conferences, congresses, meetings and other executive corporate events and annual festivals, attended by important worldwide participants.
Nusa Dua has a number of beaches separated by several sandy outposts which jut out to the ocean. The southern-most beach is already about 2km long of sandy shoreline flanked by a number of international class resorts like Bali Hilton and the Grand Hyatt Bali. Interestingly, there are two separate sandy beaches here with a lush public park dividing these two. The park also host a temple called Pura Bias Tugel which is located a secluded location within the park's compound.
The northern portion of this seaside park offers a spectacular view of Mt Agung across the Badung Straits. It was a sight to behold as my prior trip to Pura Besakih had this legendary mountain peak covered in clouded. The beach has some decent sands, although honestly it is nothing to shout about. In fact, most parts of Nusa Dua are of of reclaimed land to cater for the explosive tourism development. Nonetheless, the beach looks natural enough for the uninitiated.
