Kuta is mainly known for its long sandy beach with gentle waves, its lively nightlife and bars, affordable accommodation and wide shopping opportunities.


Beach – The long, flat beach is a perfect spot for relaxing, sunbathing or even for taking an early morning or late afternoon walk of jog. The sea has small, gentle waves that are popular with people learning to surf and also for families enjoying the sea although there can be strong currents from time to time.

Accommodation – There is an excellent range of budget accommodation choices from hostels and guesthouses to beachfront resorts and hotels.

Nightlife – Kuta is a party destination and every night the streets become packed with crowds of party goers enjoying the music, bars, nightclubs and even top bands and DJ’s.

Food – There is an excellent range of food in the area from wonderful street food to restaurants catering for every taste. Food tends to be very affordable throughout the area.

Things To Do

The surf is the big draw and although the waves are not big they are generally reliable meaning that they appeal to all surfers from beginners to the more experienced.

Shopping is a popular pastime in the area with a range of market stalls, roadside shops and even large malls with international well known brands.

The area has a number of attractions for the family away from the beach including water parks and cinemas.
