Kuta Beach is a great place for sunbathing and enjoying the surf. The beach is set in the crescent-shaped bay of Kuta. Both ends offer welcoming waters for paddlers and beginners. Stronger surf make the middle sections a paradise for professional wave-riders. When not enjoying the waves, you can find a variety of traditional Balinese handicrafts in the shops along the beach. In addition, there are many star-rated hotels, bars, clubs, and nightlife.
