"Kuta & Legian - Famous Beach in Bali" Top 5 Page for this destination Kuta by victorwkf

Kuta Travel Guide: 432 reviews and 1,199 photos

The long stretch of beach at the Kuta and Legian area of Bali, near to the town of Denpasar and airport, is perhaps the most famous beach in Bali. As expected, there are many beach activities here as well as beach resorts, tourists, pubs, restaurants, shopping etc.

Unfortunately, terrorists have struck here twice and I feel very sad for the friendly locals and the people who are either killed or injuried during the attacks. Nevertheless, Kuta and Legian Beach is worth a stay when you are at Bali to really experience the beach atmosphere and the beautiful sunset.

Let me share with you my experiences and photos of Kuta and Legian Beach, which I hope you will find useful.

One of the most beautiful experience at Kuta and Legian Beach is the sunset which should not be missed when you are at this place. The sunrise is also very enchanting as well. More photos are at the "General Tips" section of this VT page.

This is a photo of me in very formal attire as I was attending a meeting at the Jayakarta Hotel along Legian Beach. This attire was really out of place as almost all the tourists were in beach attire. After the meeting, I really had a good time with the lessen load on my body :)

Pros and Cons
