General info

Kuta Beach’s 2.5-kilometre stretch of cream-colored sand borders Legian to its north and Tuban (home of the Ngurah Rai International Airport) to its south. This beach on Bali’s southwestern coast is perhaps the most popular resort area in Bali, and it’s even more recognised among international visitors than the island itself – thanks to its combined features of sun, sand and surf. Surfing in Bali, often considered a key contributor to the rise of tourism in Bali, all started here.  

What once was a mere ‘backyard’ of a sleepy Balinese fishing village, with cow grazing fields and seaside coconut groves, has evolved over the decades as a front showcase of a one-stop beach holiday destination, with accommodation ranging from cheap guesthouses to five-star hotels and resorts, plus thriving bars, nightclubs and (in recent years) multi-storey shopping malls nearby. Despite the modern and urbanised feel of Jalan Pantai Kuta, the main beach road that runs parallel the coastline, the beach of Kuta continues to appeal – it’s still a place for Bali’s magical sunsets.

Hit the beach in the early mornings, you can claim a spot on the sand, together with surfers steadily watching for the perfect swells as the action takes place on the waves. Throughout the day, troupes of beach vendors and masseuses will all vie for your attention, be it for a beach sarong or a cheap massage, aka ‘spa treatment,’ on the sand. During and after sunset, it’s a greatly mixed scene: friendly beach soccer matches that you can join, spontaneous ‘beach bars’ selling cold Bintangs and local bites, chats with locals, djembe drumming jam sessions and even fire dancers. 

Kuta Beach’s focal point is its central section, aptly named ‘Halfway’. Here, you only need to cross the Jalan Pantai to Kuta Beachwalk, the premier modern shopping, dining and entertainment complex, filled with numerous tenants. The footpaths on both sides connect to most of Kuta’s other highlights, such as Hard Rock Café, HQ Beach Club, the Kuta Art Market, and the Balawista lifeguard tower that is right next to the Sea Turtle Conservation site, where batches of hatchlings are released regularly (visitors are free to join).
