On the eastern side of Dajuma is a beach where sea turtles are used to laying their eggs overnight. For 22 years, we have been used to shelter them from predators by bringing them to the Kurma Asih Turtle conservatory in Perancak, where our friend Komang knows how to take care of them until their hatching. This is what happened last week with an important hatching that made the joy of our Australian customers Deb and her husband Phil as well as little Célestin, very impressed to hold a baby turtle in his hand. They were very lucky to be able to attend the egg hatch and to accompany these small beings so fragile to the sea to start their life trip.
Dajuma, with its pristine shoreline, highlights the importance of beach cleanup. As shown on the photo, our staff, aided by some of our guests, work tirelessly to maintain the beauty of this coastal gem. Through regular beach cleanup initiatives, they ensure that plastic debris is removed, the ecosystem is preserved and marine life is protected. Dajuma’s commitment to a clean beach environment sets an inspiring example to visitors and neighboring communities in promoting sustainability and responsible tourism. Together we can make a significant difference in preserving the natural wonders of Dajuma for future generations.
With the beginning of the rainy season, nature in Bali is cleaning up: the flow of the rivers increases enormously and leads to the sea a lot of dead wood which is a blessing for the villagers who use it in the kitchen but not only. Indeed, many pieces of wood have very beautiful shapes and essences that excite the creativity of Balinese artists. Thus are born real works particularly popular with tourists, decorative or utilitarian objects according to their inspiration.
The beach in front of Dajuma is an extraordinary playground for young and old. Protected by its volcanic cape which can be seen more than 300 m away at low tide, the beach offers all kinds of activities, from simple walks in giant potholes to coral rocks which aquatic life fascinates children, to other more sporting activities such as surfing, kite surfing, SUP, sailing or fishing at the cape or at sea with local fishermen. A wonderful world in itself so exotic! But among all these activities there is one very popular in Bali, the kite. All Balinese families do this activity and like to share it with our guests as the picture shows.
Among its many assets, Dajuma has the advantage of sumptuous sunsets that can be admired, cocktail in hand, from your room or in the tropical garden. Thanks to its location on a volcanic cape facing due west, the sunsets are visible all year round without restriction. The past week has been particularly favorable from this point of view, with each evening a different kind of conflagration of the sky, very inspiring. Enjoy it!
For many years, Dajuma has actively supported the Marine Turtle Conservatory located in Perancak, 25 km from us. Many sea turtles lay their eggs on the beaches around Dajuma, but the risk of seeing them stolen or devoured by stray dogs or birds is great. So we encourage villagers and our staff to pick them up and bring them to the conservatory. Last week, many births took place. The children of our customers had the pleasure of bringing the baby turtles to the sea, in complete safety. Well done kids!
When we go on vacation to the other side of the world, we attach a lot of importance, and rightly so, to the quality of the beaches of the hotel we have chosen: is it sand or rocks, clean and well maintained, is it light (coral) or dark (volcanic) sand? Dajuma, being located on a cape which is discovered at low tide for several hundred meters, is lucky to be surrounded by 3 very different beaches for all tastes: to the east, more than 20 km of fine sandy beaches almost virgin suitable for walking and jogging, to the west, the ocean is much calmer and a large sandy beach shared with local fishermen is suitable for swimming and body boarding. Between the two is the protective cape with its natural pots and corals which are discovered at low tide, a true paradise for children.
Now the question that often comes up: is the sand coral or volcanic? Well the answer is “both”. Indeed, depending on the tides and the times of the year, the ocean brings back either coral sand as shown in the photo, or volcanic sand, even softer to the feet and shining with a thousand lights.
Other questions that come up often: are they clean and what about sunsets? The answer is absolutely yes in both cases, because every day they are thoroughly cleaned by our staff. It is part of our eco-policy. The orientation of Dajuma being due west the sunsets are magnificent.
Last point to emphasize specific to Dajuma, we offer our guests massages on the beach in direct contact with the volcanic rock loaded with trace elements. Followed by a visit to the hammam and the hot tub of our spa, they guarantee you a perfect fitness! Welcome to our exciting Balinese beaches!
All our customers know the monument to the glory of Colonel N’Gurah Rai who landed on the beach in front of Dajuma in 1946 to fight and prepare for the independence of Indonesia. Due to its position in the submerged area at high tide of the beach, this iconic monument suffers daily assaults from the ocean and must be regularly repaired. This is what happened last week. Our team of masons-artists has completely restored this beautiful monument to the delight of the surrounding villagers and our guests. Nice work guys!
