What to See in Nusa Dua – Bali Attractions

Nusa Dua has a number of interesting things to do and see, not least of all the great beaches located around the area. In addition to these, you can enjoy fine art work, a theater show, and more.

Bali Nusa Dua Theater

Everyone can enjoy a show at Bali Nusa Dua Theater, which holds a number of important events through the year. Here you can view the main show, a fun computer and puppet program that also features impressive acrobatics and dancing, all while telling a traditional story. The theater is located at the BTDC complex, towards the center.

Beaches by Nusa Dua

The beaches near nusa dura include, of course, Nusa Dua Beach, which is clean, bright, and supplied with high quality resorts and hotels, including the Grand Hyatt Bali. Usually less crowded than beaches like Seminyak, Nusa Dua has safe water that is good for swimming. Many visitors enjoy cycling, jogging, and strolling nearby.

Mengiat Beach is a private beach located just to the south of Nusa Dua Beach. There are a few restaurants and overall it is quieter and has a more exclusive feel than the main beach. To get there, you must go to the road that runs by the Inna Putri Bali Hotel.

Pandawa Beach

Another fine beach is Pandawa, located by the Kutuh Village a few miles from the BTDC Complex. This is a secluded beach that increasingly attracts people drawn to its beautiful cliffs and fine ocean views. A little less than a mile in length, Pandawa Beach gives visitors another place to enjoy the sun and waves in Nusa Dua.

Museum Pasifika

If you would like to see some art showcased in good style while in Nusa Dua, go to the Museum Pasifika. Artists from around the world have their works showcased here and there are also some items relating to history here. There are some very beautiful pieces and the museum is worth a visit. It is not far from the Bali Collection and is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Visit a Temple (Pura)

Several fine Hindu puras are located around Nusa Dua. A visit to these spiritual sites will add both beauty and culture to your visit here. Among the temples are the Pura Puseh, Pura Segara Nata (near the coast), and Pura Desa, which is near Bualu. Some temples are active while others are used less frequently, and by exploring you may come across one or two of these special places. The only one that is open to visitors is the Pura Geger, which is located not far from the Nikko Bali Resort and Spa. Since these are sacred temples, there are rules to be minded when visiting the puras. One is that, at Pura Geger, visitors can only enter if there is someone praying inside.

Geger Beach

Just a little ways from Nusa Dua Beach is Geger Beach, which is much quieter save for a few beachside dining areas. Geger Beach is blessed with a beautiful blue sea and fine sands. A little closer to the temple here is an even more secluded beach that may suit your needs. Swimming and sunbathing are both popular activities at Geger, along with simple sunbathing.

Puja Mandala

Puja Mandala is a religious complex that is sure to fascinate visitors while educating them about the many different faiths of Bali. Here you will find a Hindu pura, several Christian churches, a mosque, and a Buddhist temple. These fine buildings are a perfect testament to the impressive religious tolerance and harmony that has characterized Bali. You will find the complex on Jalan Kuru Setra.
