Nusa Dua, the most exclusive and well-planned tourist resort in Bali, is a place where a row of international chain hotels reside within a well-maintain resort. Before it turned into tourist resort in 1970s, the spot was a quite and dry fishermen village. Unlike at present time, it was not expensive and attractive place to live back then. Beside the luxurious tourist amenities provided, the main attraction is the white sandy beach. Further north outside of the organized Nusa Dua area, Tanjung Benoa provides extensive choice of water sports.
