Bali has many famous marine tourism destinations such as Padang Padang Beach, Kuta and many others. One of the attractions that should be visited is Water Blow in the South of Bali. This place offers high and impressive waves. The beauty of the waves on the rock cliffs is a view that needs to be taken with a camera.

Water blow is a term that refers to the large waves between the reefs that blow the seawater up. You will be amazed by the waves spreading into the air.

Nusa Dua's Water Blow is a natural phenomenon located at the end of a cliff, not a beach with sand that is often found in other areas of Nusa Dua. Here, you will see coral cliffs which act as a natural fortress against the crashing waves of the southern Indian Ocean. As a result, the waves which are blocked by these cliffs are blown upwards, creating a spectacular “water blow”. Different from the surrounding beaches such as Geger Beach and Samuh Beach in Nusa Dua, Water Blow offers a unique and dramatic experience. Besides enjoying the water jets, we can also see a panoramic view of the wide and clear Indian Ocean.

If you visit between July and October, be prepared to be splashed by the sea water, a moment not found anywhere else. Because this moment doesn't happen every minute, your patience will be rewarded when you see this beautiful water spout.

If you want to visit Water Blow in the afternoon, around 4 p.m., it's the best choice. The sun is shady and you can enjoy the beauty of nature without worrying about getting sunburned.

For the precise location of Water Blow, this tourist spot is behind the grand Hyatt Nusa Dua hotel area. To find it more easily, tourists should enter the ITDC Nusa Dua area. The Water Blow Peninsula Nusa Dua tourist attraction (DTW) will officially reopen to the public starting January 2022. The entrance fee for tourists is IDR 15,000 for adults and IDR 10,000 for children, specifically for domestic tourists while for foreign tourists is IDR 25,000.
