Kuta Area

Originally Kuta was the first settlement, there tourists in Bali started to arrive. Initially they it were backpackers, but after the fame of Bali was spread throughout the world tourism in Bali began to develop. At the moment this is probably the most famous place in Bali, you can clearly understand it by the number of signs on roads showing the direction to this area. With the rise of tourism in Bali formerly small village Kuta has turned into an entertainment center. Nowadays it is popular among novice surfers (cause the waves of Kuta beach are perfect to learn surfing). Earlier three settlements – Kuta, Legian and Seminyak were absolutely separate, but now you might think that this is one big tourist town. However each of these areas still have their  own specifics. IN this section you will find all necessary information about Kuta and Tuban(formerly the small village, and now the area of Kuta that is closest to the airport). The Kuta area is located between Ngurah Rai International Airport on the south and Jalan Melasti in the north.

If you visit Bali for the first time and decided to stop in Kuta, you must clearly understand what you should expect from this area. First of all you should forget about the beach vacation in Kuta and Legian for two reasons. Firstly it is not possible to swim without a bodyboard or surfboard here, because of very strong ocean waves. Secondly you would hardly even want to swim or sunbathe in the Kuta beach because there are tons of garbage there. For more details you can read about Kuta Beach in Bali in separate article.

Naturally Kutais totally different from the other areas of Bali, and completely lacks the charm of this island. However, if you want to have fun and always like to stay in the most crowded and popular places , then maybe it’s not such a bad choice, because something happens here almost around the clock. IN Kuta you will find a sufficiently large choice of cafes and restaurants, as well as a large number of accommodations ranging from five-star hotels to cheap guesthouses. In the south area of Kuta – Tuban you will find more package tourists and around Kuta beach itself there are mostly surfers, backpackers and clubbers. There is large number of nightclubs the area of ​​Kuta that are open till the morning light, so this place is crowded and noisy all night. However but if you live in Tuban you won’t see even a sign of anything like that.

Another feature of this area are the heaviest traffic jams that you can see all day long, especially in the evening. If you don’t ride motorbike it is better to travel on foot here, since even a five-minute taxi ride can turn into a forty-minute sitting in a traffic jam. This traffic jams begins almost from the airport itself and lasts until the middle of Kuta beach. If you rent a scooter these traffic jams won’t be a problem for you anymore.
