As far as destinations to have fun in the sun go, it doesn’t get much more enthralling than a trip to Tanjung Benoa in Bali. This beach is hands down the most fun place in Bali to spend a few days.

Tucked away just north of Nusa Dua is Tanjung Benoa. This beachside resort town sits on the inland side of Benoa Bay, offering tourists pristine calm waters, stunning sunrises, and the chance to indulge in a non-stop fun-filled beach holiday. 

Tanjung Benoa is super laid back. Neighboring Nusa Dua may be known for its luxurious and exclusive resorts, but Tanjung Benoa is accessible, welcoming, and super chilled out.

It is the perfect destination for family holidays or for groups of mates on a getaway in Bali.

Tanjung Benoa may be famous for its watersports activities for tourists, but it’s not the only thing the area has to offer holidaymakers. For a taste of the high life, be sure to experience the sunset cruise at Tanjung Benoa. 

The Skylight Dinner Cruise is one of the highlights of a vacation in Tanjung Benoa. Cruise guests are invited to enjoy a scenic sunset dinner aboard a luxury catamaran in Benoa Bay.

Most tour providers for the Tanjung Benoa sunset cruise experience include hotel pick up and drop off at the ticket price.  


Tanjung Benoa offers tourists a brilliant selection of accommodation options. From mid-budget resorts to high-end hotels, there is a place to stay to suit every budget.
