Tanjung Benoa Area
Tanjung Benoa is one of Bali's multi-cultural areas, with Chinese, Hindus and Moslems living in close proximity. This area is one of the best places to experience water sports such as wind surfing, snorkeling, parasailing, and jet skiing. With a mask and snorkel you can explore underwater Indonesia, teeming with green sea turtles, manta rays, angel fish, and occasionally a gargantuan Oceanic sunfish, which sometimes grow to more than two meters in length. You can also book a cruise here and explore some of the smaller islands of Indonesia or the outer coral reefs that are virtually untouched. Be sure to take along sunscreen and a wide hat, because the sun can be quite strong.
Benoa harbor is the center of the local and international fishing industry. The large tuna and marlin that are processed here are packed in ice and whisked off to the sushi bars of New York City and Tokyo. Sample the fresh fish here in Bali three days before the rest of the world gets their chance!
