Kuta Beach: A Peaceful Sanctuary

10 Apr
Kuta Beach, Bali Indonesia

If you are headed to Bali, Indonesia, you should not miss putting your best foot on one of the most famous beaches in Asia, the Kuta Beach.

Kuta is located in the southern most part of Bali, where it was once a sleepy fishing village half a century ago, but has slowly expanded since the 1960s after its long sandy beach was discovered by travelers from Asia and wandering surfers from nearby Australia.

These days Kuta is now quite busy and packed with varied accommodation from four-star hotels to budget hostels. Along its strip of white sand lies cheap bars and clubs , while local and international restaurants offer great dining. Kuta also offers shopping aplenty, from the chic beachfront ‘Discovery Shopping Mall’ and Kuta Square to the souvenir shops lining Jalan Kartika Plaza, Jalan Pantai Kuta and up to Legian and Seminyak – all within easy walking distance.

Kuta has its own beauty and attractions and remains one of Indonesia’s major tourist destinations; particularly during the peak season from July to August and the holiday season for Christmas and New Year: at these times Kuta will be fully booked by a local younger crowd, Asian travellers and Australian teenagers who are intent on enjoying an affordable vacation in Bali.

Tips to Remember:

  • Dont forget to equip yourself with sun protection
  • If you’re a backpacker looking for cheap accommodation in Kuta, just go to
  • Poppies Lane Alley, where you can pick your low-budget inns and restaurants
  • Warungs offering cheap food are within a 2 minute walk on Poppies Lane 1, so no need to get sucked into a beachside restaurant and high prices
  • Almost every evening there is a performance of Balinese -dance somewhere in Kuta. To know what is on just ask around.
