Visitors often call it by the name of Nusa Dua Beach because the beach lies in Nusa Dua area. Samuh Beach presents nature attraction in the form of beautiful sunrise like that on Sanur Beach area.
This beach is very friendly to children because it has little waves. Sometimes there are no waves at all, so that many tourists allow their kids to play freely on this beach.
