5. Nusa Dua Beach
Nusa Dua Beach is another beach where many couples would like to have their pre wedding photoshoot. This white sandy beach has clusters of rocks which are great to pose on, the sea waves are not very rough and thus generally safe to swim in.
Something special about this beach is the Water Blow. The Water Blow is a rock formation where waves collide onto the rock wall creating a giant splash, making the water to appear as it is “blowing up”, resulting in the name. This amazing attraction is special and certainly a great addition in your wedding album!
4. Taman Ujung Water Palace
Taman Ujung Water Palace is a place with gorgeous, colourful gardens and a combination of Balinese and European architecture. It was originally built for the purpose of punishing people accused of practicing black magic. However, after being discovered that this place has a spectacular view, the king decided to enlarge and decorate the place, which is now known as Taman Ujung Water Palace.
This venue has a great mountainous backdrop to its north, and sea to its southwest, making it a favourite location for pre wedding photoshoots.
3. Tanah Lot Temple
Tanah Lot is a popular tourist attraction and may be crowded at times. In Tanah Lot, there is a small water fountain that is always shooting out water continously. Locals believe that the water is holy water, and by drinking the holy water, while saying prayers, all your prayers will be answered.
At Tanah Lot, there is also a small cave (called the Holy Snakes Cave) containing a poisonous snake which will not bite visitors. To touch or hold the poisonous snake, tourists must pay a small fee to the guards standing outside the cave.
These two caves are the only caves accessible to visitors and together with the stunning sunsets, this is indeed a beautiful and special place to have the pre wedding photoshoot at.
