What To Do in Nusa Dua
Nusa Dua is mostly filled with resorts which means unless you’re staying at one of them you can’t actually sit in a lot of the areas along the beach there. It is well worth a trip though. As well as there being some good surf spots around there (especially during rainy season in Bali when the wind really hits the west coast) there is a place called Water Blow there which is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in Bali.
Water Blow Nusa Dua
Water Blow is, as strange as it sounds, a rock formation by the sea where the water pushes it and flies up in the air in weird and wonderful shapes. It’s the best natural attraction I’ve been to in Bali. Even better than the Rice Terraces in Ubud. I could stand and watch that thing for hours. It’s mesmerizing.
Check out my video below for a sneak peak of what it looks like. No video or photos could ever do it justice though, make sure you go check it out for yourself.
Surfing in Nusa Dua
Just to the right and left of Water Blow are great surf spots too, so if you’re a surfer going there means you get to see one of the best natural attractions in Bali and have a surf. As far as I’m concerned that makes for a pretty perfect day.
There break os quite a way back from the shore so it’s also a good spot for stand up paddleboarding.
Nusa Dua Toll Road
There is a toll road to get across to Nusa Dua. You can avoid it by carrying on straight down Ngurah Rai By Pass but at least once it is worth paying the 4,000 Rupiah (20p/30 cents USD/ 40 cents AUD) to go across it. It’s essentially a motorway on stilts over the water and the view is beautiful.
How Long to Spent in Nusa Dua, Bali
Since Nusa Dua is filled with fancy resorts it’s an expensive area to stay in. I’d suggest just swinging by for a day on your way elsewhere.
Where to Stay in Nusa Dua
Well there are plenty of really expensive hotels in Nusa Dua and honestly, if you’re not staying in one of them you’re probably just better off doing for the day trip there as there’s plenty of accommodation in the surrounding areas that will be much better value for money for you.
How to Get From Nusa Dua to Uluwatu and the Bukit Area
