In my quest to experience as much of Bali as possible, after exploring Kuta and Seminyak, I headed to the much quieter beaches and sea weed farms of Nusa Dua. Known for its white sand beaches, peaceful resorts and gated housing communities, Nusa Dua is a great place to come if you are in a mood to relax, escape the crows and get a really good massage right on the beach. The beach I chose put at the top of my Nusa Dua itinerary was Geger beach, for its golden sand, azzure water and the little known but stunning and ornate temple perched on a cliff above the beach. Pura Geger (pura is the Balinese word for temple) is a real hidden gem, carved out of black volcanic rock. You are pretty much guaranteed to be the only visitor and the priest overseeing the temple speaks only Balinese so if have any burning questions, break out your phrasebook and most expressive hand gestures. I stopped by the temple on my way home, after a day at Geger beach just as the sun was setting. So visit in the evening, stay a while and watch the sun paint the sky and the sea shades of pink, red and orange.
