Bali is ♥ : Pantai Mengiat, Nusa Dua

If you are asking why not Kuta beach, then I’ll tell you why.  Usually ppl frequent Kuta beach because of the huge ocean wave that makes it suitable for surfers alike.  On the other hand, some frequent Kuta beach to catch the beautiful sunset.  For me?  When it comes to beach, I guess I prefer (but not limited) to real blue ocean water, just like the one in Perhentian.  :)

I read a lot about the nice beach at Nusa Dua and so, I requested Dewa, our friendly driver, to drive us there first thing in the morning.

The moment I came down from the car, my jaw almost fell apart as I really didn’t expect such a blue beach in Bali

Don’t you just love the horizon that connects the sea and the sky?

As usual, I need to be in the picture, alwight?  tee hee

Then I saw two locals were enjoying the beach view under a almost-leaf-less tree.  :P

blurdevil wants too!

We stroll along the beach, enjoying the white white sand and saw “uncle” wearing a swimming trunk flying a kite.

Bramen wants some action with the colourful ship

Pantai Mengiat hosts most of the luxurious resort, which includes Grand Hyatt, St Regis Hotel, AYodya and others.  So you’ll find that the crowd here are mostly Westerners.  You’ll find nicely trim garden.

Salsa Bar @ Grand Hyatt fronting the beach

And big big chess set lol  :)

The cute lifeguard-hut

Most of the beach chair in front of the respective hotels are meant for their in-house guest.  But fret not, you can still come by the beach and if your really want to get some sun tanning action, you can rent of the beach chairs from one of the local cafe (not part of the Hotels) called Yasa Segara.  We just came by this cafe for some light lunch.  :)

No air-conditioner here but they got nice little garden for beach-style makan.  :)

Looking half bake under the sun

Fruit Juice for 10,000 Rp (RM3.40)

Ayam Bakar serve with white rice for 45,000 Rp (RM15.30)

Kolobak is a pork meat serve in sweet sour sauce for 40,000 Rp (RM13.60)

So if you really wants to spend some time with white sand and blue blue sea, this is the place to be.  And not forgetting, nude sun bathing here is still acceptable.  :)

Happy blue beach.  *hugs*

    Since you like Bali’s beaches you may also like this article at tripadvisor.com http://tinyurl.com/d45wl8, a neatly summary of great beaches in Nusa Dua, Jimbaran and Kuta area, with plenty of pictures. I just came across it before I came across your colourful blog.

    that’s very blue sea. so which beach is better? I still hav to wait till Jan next yr…bleh

    • blurdevil says:

      this beach is definitely better than Kuta/Seminyak. Its different la. u get big waves in Kuta/Seminyak, which you can surf. For me, I love blue sea, so this is the one.

      Hotels here are those 5-stars. So do your research. =)

    • blurdevil says:

      Its one of the nicest beach in Bali. If you really want to spend your time by the beach, then drop by to Nusa Dua. =) Its approximate 30 mins drive. More a less around there la. =)

  8. Desmond says:
