Tanjung Benoa very quickly went from being a sleepy fishing village to a major tourism destination and Bali’s main water sports hub. What was once a tiny local dock is now the Benoa Cruise International Terminal, where about 50 cruise ships dock each year. As busy as it sounds, the area still retains some elements of its village atmosphere, particularly around the small but splendid temples at the northern end of the peninsula.
Tanjung Benoa is 15 km from the international airport, about 4 km north of Nusa Dua. It’s a family-friendly spot, with a huge choice of mid-range resorts and hotels. Despite the constant buzz of boats and jet skis throughout the day, it’s quiet in the evenings and life here has a generally gentle pace.
