This world famous Balinese destination, is perfect for enjoying the beach with your family, shopping ‘til you drop, or sampling the local nightlife. Both experienced surfers and those learning to surf can enjoy catching waves in Kuta.
Kuta is probably the most well-known holiday destination in Bali. With notorious parties, glittering beaches and world-class surfing, no Bali holiday is complete without at least coming for a day! Gradual changes, however, have seen Kuta grown up and become a popular destination for families, with upmarket shopping malls, a water park and various dining options to suit all palates and budgets. Situated on the western side of the island, Kuta is home to Bali’s most famous beach, with the white sand stretching to nearby resort towns of Legian and Seminyak. Once a very small and traditional Balinese fishing village, the long stretch of white sand and awe-inspiring sunsets began attracting tourists to the doorstep and the city grew from there. At one point Kuta was considered chaotic, with buildings haphazardly thrown up to accommodate the growing number of visitors, however increased investment and infrastructure has created a more accessible environment for visitors. Comprised of a labyrinth of laneways, shops and stalls that feature world-class restaurants, souvenirs, imitation designer goods and everything else you can imagine, Kuta is the place to go for cheap shopping. Looking to spend your time in a more productive way? Why not get in touch with the local Bali Sea Turtle Society, who depend on volunteers to collect turtle eggs where they can grow and thrive in the local hatchery where they’re safe from predators and tourists alike. You can spend your days and nights helping the environment and topping it off with a cold beer! Attracting notoriety and international visitors, Kuta is a town with two faces. Geared to those who love the nightlife and are seeking non-stop party action, Kuta also happily welcomes families into the fold with activities for all ages, and gorgeous sunsets to appreciate from your beach chairs. No matter what type of Bali holiday you’re planning, Kuta will have something to offer to make your stay unforgettable!
