Tanjung Benoa is located 15 kilometres from the international airport but if you are already staying within the Nusa Dua cluster, it is just few steps away from the west gate. Tanjung Benoa, like many other beachside destinations in Bali, used to be a fishing village and an old dock. The development of the peninsula has been very significant as most of the shore-side properties are now hotels, resorts and water sports operators. One of the more popular attractions of Tanjung Benoa is undoubtedly its beach with relatively small waves, making it ideal for families. A plethora of watersports activities such as parasailing, wind surfing, jet skiing, banana boat sailing, snorkeling, reef fishing, and much more are available all along the beach. A large variety of dive operators are based in Tanjung Benoa as well.
