Nusa Dua, a 350 hectares elite tourism spot, built in the 1970s, in the southernmost part of Bali, Indonesia, is a lovely clean, green, well-maintained place without any crowd, horns, scooters or traffic. Nusa Dua means “two islands” as the Peninsula Island lies on the southern side while Nusa Dharma Island lies on the northern side of the bay of Bali. Nusa Dua in the late 1960s was an obscure coast with white sand beaches and two peninsular islets and the arid soil was unsuitable for cultivating anything but coconut with the scarcity of fresh water. Proper roads also didn’t exist at that time. In 1970, Society Central Equipment Touristic Outer (SCETO) mastered a plan for the development of Bali as an environmentally sustainable and model for a tourism spot. This Nusa Dua Water blow came into existence to the outer world.
Nusa Dua has an array of 5-star resorts like Grand Hyatt, Ayodya Resort and more than 20 standard resorts with fantastic facilities like a museum shopping centre, cultural venue, golf club and BIMC Hospital. It is located 22 kilometres from Denpasar, the capital of Bali. Nusa Dua has several places of interest like Nusa dua Water blow, beaches of Mengiat and Sawangan. Nusa Dua is managed by the State company Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC).
Nusa Dua Water blow makes you witness an amazing side of nature as large waves from the Indian Ocean continuously crashes with brute force against the barbed limestone edges on the peninsula’s south-eastern cliff. You will be able to witness a 240-degree seascape with frequent irregular splashes of water being the fun element. The waves splashing water up to several metres high makes it a bit dangerous place for the tourists with signs on the stone slabs reading “Strong currents”, “Slippery rocks” “Sharp coral”, “High surf”, “Sudden drop off”. It looks like a circular cement stage which is bordered by guardrails. A large stone is present in the middle which provides a place for the tourists to seat and waits for each wave. The water blows are caused due to the narrowed overhangs that allow a massive surge of water up to 30m high from the base producing strong currents. The blue water along with the volcanic jagged rock formations of limestone, the splashing water and the coral present around the water blow is a very beautiful view to capture. But tourists need to be careful about protecting their camera from sprays of water. Also, the chances for the tourists to get drenched is extremely high.
The southern peninsula provides the tourist with a pathway for leisure walks and is a weekend spot for the guests staying at the nearby hotels. It is also used as a place for pre-wedding photo sessions. It is located just 45 minutes away by car from the airport. The best month to visit is around July till October as it’s mostly sunny at this time of the year with less chance of rain and water splash is high. The best time to visit with family and children is in the evening at around 5 pm when the sunlight is reduced or in the morning at around 8 am. Bali has a temperature of around 33 degree Celsius during the day time, thus wearing casual summer clothes is recommended. There is no entry fee and for the people coming with cars, no need to worry as there is also a car parking area at the entrance gate to the Water Blow Nusa Dua green park with a minimum fee.
