Best Things To Do in Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua, literally translating to “two islands” is named after the two islands on the eastern shoreline of Bali. There is a diverse range of the things to do in Nusa Dua, that make it a delight for travellers. Nusa Dua is best known for its stretch of luxury hotels and resorts complete with markets, shopping complex, boutiques, a 18 hole golf course, grounds for Lawn Tennis and world class restaurants. This part of the Bukit peninsula is just the place to retire to when one wants to take it easy and relax in luxury as part of the holiday agenda.

Nusa Dua is technically away from the rest of the chaos of the island but then museums, temples are only a few miles away and remain easily accessible. One can visit the carved Pura Greger stone temple, known for the intricacies of its carvings. It sits atop a forested scaffold overlooking the ocean. It effectively gives one the feeling that despite being in the most modern and luxurious resort zone of Bali, one is never too far away from the cultural life of the island. For the art lovers, the Museum Pasifika is just the place for a casual stroll to take in the various influences of artistic traditions on the culture of the Asia Pacific region. The paintings remind one of the landscapes and cultural life almost as if in technicolour dreams.

The beaches are alluring and have a section particularly popular for adventure sports activities like jet skiing, surfing, parasailing, snorkelling, etc. As if that is not enough, the tourism experience in Nusa Dua is compounded by bringing in the likes of experiences as one reads about in novels like Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island by a recreation of the experiences of stranded sailors and pirates at Pirates Bay. Right from organizing treasure hunts to musical evenings and provision of bamboo decks to look out for help across the ocean, the best things to do in Nusa Dua brings out in essence every bit of basking in a fantasy world.
