This beach is located in the southeast of the island of Bali. Nusa Dua is home to big chain-brand hotel resorts and convention centers. As a matter of fact, it hosted the FMI-World Bank annual gathering in 2018 and will repeat in 2022 with the G-20 summit.
Perfect for kids, its shallow, safe and clean waters offer many motored water sports like jet ski, parasailing as well as boat excursions, while the beach two reefs allow some snorkeling and diving (somewhat limited, but Nusa Penida is at a mere 1.5 hour away by fast boat for keen divers). Nusa Dua has won several environmental awards for the cleanliness of its beaches.
