Tanjung Benoa Beach Bali

As one of the world best water sport place, Tanjung Benoa presents a paradise for water sport lovers. We may enjoy various water games offered on the beach situated in the south part of Bali Island. Jet ski sounds wailing mingled with excited shouts of people on the Banana Boat. A speedboat pulling banana-shaped inflatable boat repeatedly toyed its passengers. Some were falling down then happily laughed, some were shouting loudly, a little scared were holding on to their banana boat. Meanwhile, the ships that will carry scuba divers into Pulau Penyu have already lined up neatly along the coast. Looking up, colorful parachutes are decorating in the glorious blue sky. The calm waves also dissolved in the water sport lover excitement.
The beach located in the south of Bali Island is known for the beach of water sport lovers. Before becoming a beach filled with water rides, Tanjung Benoa used to be a fishing village. After BTDC (Bali Tourism Development Corporation) began the project in Nusa Dua, Tanjung Benoa has developed into one of the best water sport places in the world.

There are some exciting water games in Tanjung Benoa. The jet ski game for example, can be tried for us who want to feel how it feels to be a racer in the ocean. To see the beautiful marine life, snorkeling can also be tried. If you want to feel the sensation of moving downwind, Flying Fish becomes one reference; our adrenalin will be encouraged through the game using Ikan Layar (Layar Fish)-like boat pulled by a speed boat. Glass Bottom Boat ride is not less exciting: we will be invited to cross over into Pulau Penyu (Turtle Island) with a transparent bottom boat, so we can see the view under the sea and its fish.

Exciting game that supposedly made the first time in Miami Beach presents a sensation of viewing from above the height. Life jacket, gloves and straps are installed neatly and securely. When the parachute was slowly rising to the top, the view of Tanjung Benoa area was clearly seen. So beautiful! The lines of beaches, green parks and rows of trees in and around Nusa Dua, blue sky and sea were always calling clearly. Feeling of having it all and indescribable sensation perfectly fused into one from the heights. Excitement of jet ski, speedboat, banana boat, and boats are lined up as if joined becoming decoration of a small paradise for water sport lovers. After 4 minutes flying with a parachute pulled by a speedboat, setting foot on the ground reawakened from a brief dream of viewing heaven from above.
