Kuta is considered the most famous destination in Bali and is the main tourist hub on the island, due to its popularity with backpackers from all over the world. Home to many different activity options, Kuta is filled with shops, bustling markets, and it also has its fair share of guest houses, hotels and all sorts of restaurants. Here are some of the best things to do in Kuta.
Things To Do In Kuta
1. Catch A Wave At Kuta Beach
Kuta’s sun, sea and the surf of Kuta Beach are among the main attractions in Kuta. This is the part of Bali that attracts the surfing crowd from all over the world. Even if you’ve never done surfing before, here you can find many places to rent a board and take your first surfing lessons out at the halfway break. More experienced surfers prefer to head to the Legion part of the beach for stronger swells.
2. Run Away From The Heat At Waterbom Waterpark
Visiting Waterbom Waterpark is a good option of day out for tourists of all ages. No matter if you’re on the island with the entire family or as a solo traveller and want to meet other travellers this place full of bars and clubs is a great option. If you’re looking for some adrenaline rush, try Race Track and Climax, or if you’re looking for something more relaxing, I recommend the Lazy River.
3. The New Kuta Golf Course
The New Kuta Golf Course is a championship standard course and the first of its kind in Indonesia. It’s also touted to be one of the most difficult courses in all of Asia. Perched high up on the island’s limestone cliffs, you might end up accidentally losing a ball in the Indian Ocean, but the spectacular views will keep you company through all 18 holes.
4. Wind Down with a Spa Treatment or Massage
Even though Kuta is mostly famous for the crazy nightlife, so the day after a long night out on the beach, it’s understandable you could be feeling a bit achy. The good news is, there are many spas and massage houses to reinvigorate yourself. Quality and prices vary considerably, so it might be a good idea to ask the staff at your hotel for the best options.
5. …and, Relax
There are many things to do in Kuta and a lot of good budget hotels and hostels. A good option of a budget hotel in Kuta is Yan’s House Hotel, with a 9.1/10 rating on Booking.com. So check-in, make yourself comfortable, order a nice cocktail and go to the pool and relax!
