A former fishing village-turned-resort town, Kuta is one the most popular holiday destinations in Bali. The Indonesian city welcomes holidaymakers to admire its picture-postcard landscapes of azure waters and orange-tinted sunsets.
The long sandy shoreline of Kuta Beach is where most of the activity takes place. On your trip to Kuta, you’ll get to experience how the beach transforms from a sunbathing spot by day to a party hub by night. You can also drop by some of the restaurants, bars and spas clustered around the beach.
Watersports thrive in Bali, attracting surfers and divers from afar. You can take surfing lessons at Kuta Beach and glide along the waves while admiring the seascapes from your surfboard. To enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving, take a day-trip from Kuta to the island of Nusa Penida or the Blue Lagoon Beach in Padangbai.
Moving inward from Kuta’s coastline that often steals the show, you’ll find many off-beat things to do within the city. With thrilling roller coasters and rides, Waterbom Bali is worth a visit. For something more relaxed yet fun, you can watch a cultural performance at the Kuta Theatre or pose against illusionistic 3D artworks at DMZ Bali.
