The port of Benoa lays very close to the popular places in Bali and to the most of the international hotels.
The International airport is only 12 km away. Benoa is therefore an ideal place to carry out passenger's turn around operations.
The Nyepi Day (also called Silent Day) all activities are stopped in Bali. This includes the port and airport which are closed that day.
This corresponds to the Balinese New Year, and it falls the day following the dark moon of spring equinox.
The next dates for the Nyepi Day is on 5 March 2011 and 23 March 2012.
