Geger Beach

Geger Beach is located in Sawangan, about 3 kilometers from the southern area of Nusa Dua. The sea here is calm so farmers grow seaweed here and tourists swim here. [2]

Tanjung Benoa

The Peninsula of Tanjung Benoa, with the village of Benoa in the foreground and Nusa Dua in the background.

Immediately north of Nusa Dua enclave is the peninsula of Tanjung Benoa that includes cheaper hotels and Benoa village. A multi-denominational area, it includes a mosque, and Chinese and Hindu temples in close proximity. Much of the beach's sand was eroded away following the mining of the nearby barrier reef for construction materials.

Benoa Port is also located here for yachts and small ships previously, but in December 2012 became Benoa Cruise International Terminal of turnaround port to serve both embarkation and debarkation of cruise passengers. As turnaround port tourists can arrive by plane and leave by a cruise ship or conversely.[3]

On December 26, 2012 the Bali Governor signed permit to utilize, develop and manage the Benoa Bay area. Reclamation of an 838 hectares by PT Tirta Wahana Bali International will be used for luxury tourist facilities such as hotels, villas apartments, international hospital, and entertaintment centers including a Disneyland-like theme park.[4]
