About Kuta

Kuta is a busy tourist area. This place is often visited first. This is because Kuta is close to the airport. But besides that, you also have beautiful beaches, a lot of shops, surf outlets and sightseeing at a little distance. Known as Bali’s number one sunset site, every late afternoon hundreds of people gather to watch the spectacular sunsets and enjoy a meal of fresh seafood from one of the many beachside cafes. In the evenings all carts with street food gather along the beach and you can have a nice cheap dinner. And in the city you have many nice bars and party clubs in Kuta.


Activities

Go Surfing

Kuta Beach is a 2 km long beach along the coast of Bali. With the beach being 2 km long, the surfers have plenty of room to spread out and find their own peak, if you are looking for a solo session and are willing to compromise on quality. You will find many rental surfboards on the beach. For a small fee you can rent a board, with or without an instructor. Kuta is an excellent place to learn, because the waves are small and it is full of surf schools where you can take lessons. With a bit of luck you will be very confident on a shelf at the end of your holiday.
