Nusa Dua – Arrive in the Beauty of Bali and Settle Nusa Dua’s Beaches
The beauty of Nusa Dua emanates from white sand beaches and luxurious hotels that overlook the water and combine the traditions of Bali with the comforts of contemporary style. Your flight lands at Ngurah Rai International Airport where your private transfer will greet you upon your arrival. The sapphire hues of the Indian Ocean shimmer against the emerald trees in the distance. As you make your way through the welcome gates of Nusa Dua, you will take in the peninsula with its manicured gardens and quiet shoreline.
After settling into the comforts of your hotel, you will have the remainder of the day at your leisure to experience the charming streets and the inviting culture. The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans emanates from the seaside cafes, blending with the sweet scent of the sea breeze as the towering palm trees shimmer with rustling fronds. For a perfect introduction into the splendors of the island, you will make your way to the Water Blow, a natural phenomenon exhibited on the coastline when the waves wedge between narrow rock cliffs. A walkway leads over the burgeoning rugged shoreline to offer a closer look at the rocky hole. As the pressure builds inside the narrow gap, the water rolls upwards, searching for a way out before finally erupting. The water resembles a massive wave of white foam before receding beyond the rocks.
