Some of the best things to do Kuta can be found on the beach. A favourite surfing coast since the 1970s, you’ll find a 2.5-km-long coastline that curves north from the Ngurah Rai International Airport’s runway in Tuban. The beach is rather popular for sunbathing, so head there the early mornings to claim a spot on the sand. Surfers should be able to enjoy the best waves in Kuta during the dry season (April–August).
For some family-friendly fun, check out Waterbom Bali, one of the best and long-running waterparks on the island. On the coast, beside a lifeguard tower, is Kuta’s sea turtle conservation centre, where you can participate in exciting releases. Cultural highlights include village temples, a Barong show, and a significant Buddhist temple in central Kuta.
