Why Kuta beach is special ?
Kuta Beach is located on the western side of the island's narrow isthmus and is considered Bali's most famous beach resort destination. Kuta Beach is also minutes away from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban. The nearby resorts of Tuban, Legian and Seminyak are all within close walking distance.
Once a simple, rustic and quiet fishing village, Kuta Beach has witnessed a transformation over the past years due to the rise of various accommodations, dining and shopping options. The rapid growth owes much to visitors, beachcombers and art lovers from nearby Australia. Expatriates also helped pioneer surfing in Kuta, as well.
Although a rather frenzied traffic scene has become commonplace here, Kuta Beach continues to attract thousands of visitors every year with its unique charm. During the peak season from July to August and the holiday season for Christmas and New Year, Kuta Beach is regularly fully-booked by travellers looking forward to a pleasant and affordable Bali escape.

Love Kuta Beach, always so much happening there. It's ace to sit back and relax, drinking some Bintangs or White Water (Smirnoff Ice), watching the world go by. If you are after peace and quiet, do not go to Kuta Beach, you are constantly being approached by the locals trying to sell their wares. I love it. Blues Bar which is opposite the end of Poppies II is a must. Blue is great, and so is his mate/helper Christian. We were fortunate to participate in the release of 300 baby Turtles, this was definitely a highlight. Magnificent sunsets too!!! :D
