Tanjung Benoa

Tanjung Benoa is a nice part of Bali. Still has some culture, without being spoilt by tourism. Peaceful. Most hotels line the beach or are close to it. Most activities are based around the beach, with lots of water sports available.

The Ugly Truth

  • If your not going to do any watersports, there is not that much else to do here besides relax, and I’d probably prefer to relax in Jimbaran or Uluwatu.

The Silver Lining

  • The beaches are calm and this is a great area for families
  • Bumbu Bali Restaurant has some of the best food Bali has to offer and is located here

What’s Nearby?

  • Kuta, Legian and Seminyak are all within 30 mins – 1hr depending on traffic
  • Sanur is approx. 30 mins north
  • Nusa Dua is approx. 10 mins away
  • Jimbaran is roughly 15 mins to 30 mins west
  • Nusa Lebongan is only 30 mins by boat from Benoa Harbour
