Taniung Benoa, known colloquially at South Bay, is famous for its water sport culture and aquatic activities. The Bay's reefs block surging tides, meaning the waves reaching the shore remain relatively calm. This natural protective barrier makes swimming and water sports comparatively safer. Attractions include the new Flying Fish, an exciting rocket experience, and a panoramic view of Bali from the high-altitude towering umbrella. Visitors can also charter out to sea to watch sea turtles, or visit the small fishing village to the north.
