Kuta Legian Travel Guide

Kuta Legian Travel Guide will help you find your way around the bustling tourist centre of Kuta Legian. In the 1960s Kuta was a quiet fishing village on the road from the airport to Denpasar.  By the early 1970s Kuta had grown into a major centre for surfers and backpackers because of its convenient location, long sandy beach and cheap homestay accommodation often built within local family compounds.

The beach scene now stretches 25 km from Uluwatu to Canggu along an almost continuous white sand beach facing the Indian Ocean. The push in tourist promotion has been towards package tours to fill the hotels that line the beach. The buffalo that used to graze among the beach-side coconut plantations are no more. On the other hand, if you’re looking for nightlife there are now plenty of discos, pubs and restaurants open till the early hours.

Try to find time to visit the Bali Bombing Memorial which is at Jln Legian Kaja No. 38, Kuta (near corner Jln Poppies II). The memorial is on the site of Paddy’s Pub. The Sari Club was across the road.

Kuta and Legian have dozens of designer boutiques, some specialising in leather and silk. Prices vary according to originality but they are still cheap compared to the West, especially leather.

Despite the dramatic growth that has occurred in the last few years, Kuta-Legian is still a fun place to stay, and you’re sure to enjoy your time there.

There are now hundreds of places to stay in the 5km strip north of the airport. Discounts of around 20% are offered in the off-season.

Because there are so many alternatives, choosing somewhere can be difficult, especially if you have not been to Bali before or had somewhere recommended. If you fly in direct, it is suggested to get a package that includes accommodation as it is much cheaper that way. Or pre-book three nights so that you will have a base while looking for somewhere more suitable or before you move away from the southern beaches.
