Kuta Beach is the most famous beach in Bali, great for surfing spot because of its high waves. The atmosphere at Kuta Beach is very lively and it is crowded most of the time particularly during peak season. However during the evening the beach becomes a very nice place to relax, enjoy the sea breeze and have a drink at the beach bar. During day time, there are locals who offer massaging, tattooing and sell snacks at the beach. Kuta Beach is also great for sunbathing, sunset viewing or just walking along the beach.
Practical info: Despite the high waves, the beach is quite safe for swimming.
