How well do know Nusa Dua, Bali?
Located on the eastern coastline of Bali, Nusa Dua is a calm and lavish paradise with glorious beach destinations. White golden sandy beaches, lots of water sports facilities, world class hotels with mesmerizing ocean views, exquisite culinary, well maintain community facilities and impressive cultural attractions.
Nusa Dua is almost in its own Bali bubble. Beautiful, clean, predominantly luxury hotels, it has it’s pro and con’s ( as do most things) but it is perfect for a Bali family holiday or romantic getaway.
Only 20 minutes from the Ngurah Rai Bali International Airport. 30 minutes from Kuta, but the two are worlds apart. While Kuta is well known for its hustle and bustle night life (especially before the pandemic years), Nusa Dua is quiet and secluded.
The beaches are less crowded than the ones in Kuta, Legian and Seminyak areas except for Pandawa Beach which attracts the crowds, but it is indeed a stunning beach. If you want to relax in 5 star accommodation you will love it here. But if you want to be closer to the action or even just more within a local community then it’s probably not for you.
Nusa Dua is a great area to relax and unwind. Walking along the boardwalk on the beach, beach days, riding bicycles. And a lot of the other things to do would be at your hotel or other hotels. While adventurers can find water sport action with a huge dose of nature’s beauty here at Nusa Dua.
You may also want to think about a private driver to spend the day exploring Uluwatu and Bukit Peninsula beaches.
The best time to visit would definitely be during the months of April, May, June and September, as any Nusa Dua travel guide would tell you, just before and after the high seasons, when the tourist crowds are less, the weather is pleasant, and hotel Prices are at their lowest.
The must-visit places in this area:
- Water Blow
Any Nusa Dua travel guide will definitely include this massive blowhole which is located not very far from the Nusa Dua beach. Many tourists visit this place to marvel at this creation of nature.
