Kuta Beach bustles with tourists vendors and locals. It's the most popular beach in Bali and the island's number one party zone.

Rapid development and an influx of visitors hasn't kept the surfers away and Kuta still remains one of Bali's best surfing beaches and a great place to enjoy the beach life.

While the surfers are still part of the Kuta scene, it's the shopping, nightlife and party vibes that attracts thousands of visitors. There's a huge choice of accommodation, restaurants and entertainment; so if you want to be within walking distance of a cool beach lifestyle by day and party by night - this is place.


Over the years Kuta development has spread out - almost absorbing the neighbouring villages of Legian and Tuban which now provide a quieter alternative to Kuta central.

New hotel developments, guest houses and resorts fill every available space, yet almost all amenities are within walking distance or a short taxi ride. Seminyak, once a quiet local village, on the fringes of Kuta, has now become the smart sophisticated end, with fine dining and numerous local lifestyle shops.


Relax.. on Bali's longest public beach. Hang out, sunbathe, eat, drink, play a game of volleyball or a challenge beach football match. Meet locals and other visitors and watch a stunning sunset over a perfect sundowner. Kuta basically offers 5 kilometres of hotels, bars, Internet cafes, juice bars, surf shops, restaurants, travel agencies and mini-marts. It can be (depending on the time of day and which end of the beach you prefer) busy and vibrant or totally chilled out.


Around the end of Jalan Double Six, about 15 minutes from Kuta centre is Dreamland Beach. Lots of afternoon action and ball games, with plenty of drinks stands to make new (girl) friends. No shortage of bars and places to eat with some excellent places to chill and drink like Zanzibar and Blue Ocean.

Surfing! Bring your own board or rent one from the guys on the beach. Prices vary but average around 30,000rp per hour. If you haven't surfed before its the perfect place to learn. You can get a boat ride out to the outer reef breaks of Tuban or surf mellow beach breaks in front of the Hard Rock Hotel.


uta's nightlife now extends about 7 kilometres (4 miles) north from the original village of Kuta and includes Legian, Seminyak stretching to Basangkasa. Kuta is entertainment central which means music clubs, open-air pubs, karaoke bars, very noisy discos and drag shows. It's a lively party scene to say the least and the kind of place where being single and alone - male or female is no problem whatsoever.

Kuta has a huge selection of restaurants serving both local and a wide variety of foreign cuisines.


Shopping! Forget your Gucci's and Prada. Bali has its own designers producing one-off pieces for fashion clothing and lifestyle goods. Lots of individuality here at often reasonable prices. You'll end up with a treasure trove of interesting, fascinating and irresistible buys. Excellent for unusual clothes, jewellry, household and lifestyle items. Kuta's main street has renowned shopping, in mostly small locally owned shops. Individual styles, excellent craftsmanship and low prices.


Kuta and neighbouring Legian and Seminyak are easy to walk around. Often you'll find yourself browsing the shops at one of town and before you realise it, you're already at the other end! Failing that it's easy and relatively cheap to take taxis. Negotiate first.
