Waterblow is located in the Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC), Nusa Dua. This place is actually just a cliff. The appeal of it is when the cliffs are exposed by strong waves. This is caused by Waterblow's position which is dealing directly with the Indian Ocean. You can capture photos of the waves hitting the reef or sit on the edge.
2. Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang
Hidden Canyon is a river canyon area that is considered sacred by the local community. This place is rarely visited because the terrain is quite dangerous. It is highly recommended to bring a tour guide together while exploring Hidden Canyon. Despite its difficulties, this canyon has beautiful panoramas and needs to be captured with a camera.
3. Taman Ujung Sukasada
Taman Ujung is one of the water palaces left by Karangasem Kingdom, which was founded in 1909. The Balinese architecture of this park was apparently designed by Dutch and Chinese architects. Taman Ujung originally had an area of 400 hectares, but most of the area had been distributed to the people. At present, the area of Taman Ujung only reaches 10 hectares.
Explore 100 stairs to reach the pillar building without a roof. You can watch the bluish Ujung Beach in the southeast. This water palace has 3 large ponds which are separated each other. In the south pool, there is an empty hall without walls. You can cross the northern pool and take pictures on a Balinese design bridge.
4. Sawangan Beach
The next hidden tourist spot is Sawangan Beach. This beach is located in the southern part of Nusa Dua. White sand alongside the blue sea makes Sawangan Beach not inferior to famous beaches. The ocean currents are calm so it is suitable for swimming, playing water, and snorkeling. To reach this beach, you have to pass the rocky stairs.
