DAJUMA BEACHES Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

DAJUMA BEACHES

Rare are the beaches in the world where you can walk for miles without being bothered by the crowds and beach sellers. This is however the case for the beaches surrounding Dajuma, so appreciated by our customers. On the West side, this is a sandy beach very safe for swimming and surfing. A little bit further, the famous Medewi surfing spot. On the East side, another sandy beach is 20 km long where swimming is not recommended on the first 300 meters because of the currents. But after that, it is just paradise for swimmers, fishermen and body-boarders. Just try, we are sure you will like it! On the picture Evelyn strolling in the sunset on the East beach.

AGUNG VOLCANO: WHAT’S UP?

It is extremely difficult to predict the behavior of a volcano. As far as Agung Volcano is concerned, the eruptive process already began with 3 eruptions last week. The worst scenario would be a pyroclastic eruption. But this would affect the slopes of the volcano only and for this risk, the authorities have already taken the necessary measures by defining a 7 to 15 km security perimeter around it in order to avoid reproducing the situation of the 1963 eruption where 1100 villagers living on the slopes of the volcano were killed.

Now the question is: should we, as tourists, come to Bali or not?

The answer is definitively yes because the pyroclastic risk is null as long as you respect the security perimeter. The only remaining issue is the cloud of ashes which can disrupt the air traffic. Since the first signs of activity in September, a lot of ashes have already been evacuated and Ngurah Raï airport has re-opened after only a few days of closure. More than 50 cities in the world are living close to an active volcano.

Because of its location 80 km from Agung volcano, the risk of being disturbed in Dajuma is really very weak. Moreover, in case of closure of the airport, we offer free stay for the extra days you would be obliged to spend with us or, if you prefer, we would take care of the re-routing of your flight from Java (Banyuwangi or Surabaya) and organise all the necessary transportation by car.

No reason why you should hesitate to come visiting us! We look forward to welcoming you soon! Have a nice trip to Bali!
