Cape Dajuma: a natural wonder

A particularity of Dajuma is its cape which extends full west over 300 meters at sea. It is an amazing place to walk in direct contact with nature. Of volcanic origin, it reveals at low tide an incredibly rich underwater life which fascinates adults as well as children. And at the end of it, you will be totally surprised with the discovery, on foot dry, of beautiful corals, in full health. To discover absolutely next time you visit us again!

SEA ACTIVITIES AT DAJUMA

Because of its unique location straight on the beach, Dajuma offers a variety of sea activities. On top of the list, of course, comes surfing with the famous Medewi spot next door and its long left hand wave. Fishing offshore with the local fishermen is another one particularly apreciated by our guests. Bodyboarding in the waves is very easy to practice and brings a lot of pleasure to everybody from 7 to 77 years old! Stand-up paddle, sailing and kayaking are also 3 ways of discovering the sea in a different way.
On the picture, for their first time in Bali, Ludwig and Vanessa from Germany during their 7 nights stay with us, did some excursions to explore West Bali and decided to try our sea kayak. They enjoyed a lot!

FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE TO MEDEWI

Our guests who love surfing the Medewi wave, the longest left wave in the world with almost 500 meters long, have the choice to get there either by foot along the beach (20 min) or by car (10 min). A free shuttle service is offered to them on demand. On the picture, Juergen with the surfboard, Scott and Laurel from USA enjoy a lot this service, by combining every day, surf at Medewi and relax and wellness at Dajuma.

DAJUMA EXPERIENCE: FISHING OFFSHORE

Dajuma is located next door the fishermen village of Pekutatan and our beach supervisor Jupry, himself son of fisherman, is always happy to invite our guests to go fishing offshore. This is what happened last monday, when our repeater guest Bastian from Germany embarked with Jupry on a traditional praho very early in the morning around 6 a.m., enjoying a beautiful sunrise on the ocean. Bastian was lucky enough to catch a big mackerel fish and he asked our kitchen team to cook it for his dinner. Well done Bastian and Selamat Makan!

MEDEWI BOARDRIDERS CHALLENGE 2018

The MBR were holding their open surfing contest challenge last weekend at the famous long left hand wave at Medewi. This unmissable event is particularly interesting because it brings together the best surfers in Indonesia with foreign surfers, sometimes coming from far away. Dajuma being located not far from the competition venue (5 minutes by free shuttle or 15 minutes walk by the beach) has attracted this year many surf amateurs, happy to share real emotions in the best possible comfort. Long live the surf!

DAJUMA SUNSETS: WHICH ANGLE WILL BE YOURS?

This week, we decided to publish our blog on the theme “Dajuma Sunsets” but seen from the viewpoint of our guests through their own pictures. Oriented full West the resort presents stunning sunsets which are appreciated by our guests particularly those who like to photograph this natural phenomenon. But the problem is under which angle should we take such picture? Because, from many locations around the resort, the result is different as shown on the photo montage. And that should not stop you from enjoying a good glass of wine. Which angle will be yours?

LOOKING FOR CRABS…

Is there a better place than the cape in front of Dajuma where to find these delicious sea shells such as clams, abalone, whelks, clams or shrimps ? This is what this villager and his son is looking for, near the sunset.
Arguably the volcanic cape  in front of Dajuma is a fantastic window on the underwater life. At low tide you can even see the famous brain coral near the surface of the water. So easy to catch all kinds of shells … without forgetting crabs … so good for the seafood soup!

SURF LESSON AT DAJUMA

Because of its location close to the famous surfing spot of Medewi, Puri Dajuma is the ideal place where to stay and practice this demanding sport.
Our beach manager Jupry was born in Pekutatan and practice surfing since he was a child. He is always pleased to teach our guest how to surf the waves just in front of the hotel. But before that, it is necessary to understand the gestures for keeping equilibrium on the board and the best way to achieve that is, by all means, to simply do it in the garden! This is what Jupry is doing on the picture under the attentive look of our guest.
