Kuta – The place to be
It’s vibrant, energetic and exciting. Kuta Beach is still known as the most popular beach in Bali.
Kuta’s 3km long sands are filled with vendors selling all, from cocktails to surfboards. If you are in Kuta, don’t miss out on the surfing as this is what Kuta is famous for.

If you are a lover of scenic beauty, then you must watch sunset from this beach that will definitely be an experience of a lifetime for you.
Legian – A busy beach ideal for surfers
Justifying its name, Legian beach has a silent and more laid-back vibe. It is situated at a very small stride from Kuta Beach. Legian beach is busier with roving beauticians and vendors.
There are mature palm trees all over the beach, so no need for an umbrella. Just grab a beach chair and enjoy nature. However, swimming in Legian beach should be done with care because undercurrents tend to be frequent.
Seminyak – A beautiful beach with excellent shopping nearby
Seminyak beach is located near the amazing Seminyak shopping district. Great for a cooling dip before or after your shopping spree.
Don’t miss out on a horse ride along the beach, especially beautiful at sunset. Or pamper yourself at one of the many Spa centers all along the beach. Of course, as always, surfing is a great option.
Very beautiful landscape at Pasir Putih
Pasir Putih is a 500 meter long beach, separated from the whole world by green headlands on both ends with a steep cliff at the back. On the beach, you can find around six warungs made of palm and bamboo leaves, selling food and cold drinks, and providing cushioned lounges for hire. At beach’s far end, there is a group of conventional blue, green, red, and yellow striped fishing boats.
After arriving at beach, you may choose a warung and bargain a menu as well as lunch time with the owners. Then just take a dip in the cool and crystal clear water. Sections of the bay near the headlands also prove to be great snorkeling areas.
Grab a Bintang (a popular local beer) and have your lunch in the makeshift barbeque with fresh chicken, seafood or traditional Indonesian food items. In the early stages of the afternoon, you can watch the local fishermen mysteriously materialize and launch their boats into the sea, unfurl the triangular, colorful, curved sails and then skim across ocean.
If you are in love with the ocean, Bali is a must visit for you. You will fall in love with the beaches, the overall atmosphere and rediscover beauty.
