Kuta Beach Attractions
What to See in Kuta Beach
There is not much you can see and enjoy in Kuta itself, but the white sandy beach extends beyond the airport into Jimbaran. Known as Bali’s number one sunset site, every late afternoon hundreds of people gather to watch the spectacular sunsets and enjoy a meal of fresh seafood from one of the many beachside cafes. The sunsets here are spectacular around December, so don't forget your camera.
Another place you should visit is Ground Zero, where Balinese residents and foreign tourists alike still keep coming to put fresh flowers at the Memorial. A Bali Bomb Memorial Event is also held every year, hosted jointly by the Indonesian and Australian governments.Read More

The five-kilometre long arching sandy stretch of Kuta Beach is still possibly the best beach front of Bali. A very short drive away from the airport, meter taxis and motorcycle taxis are easily found around the area to take you anywhere in Kuta or elsewhere. The beach is safe, partially clean and well maintained, although the vendors fill up the beach side haphazardly.
However, this beach is really famous for its spectacular sunsets and waves, and attracts tourists who spend hours here swimming, surfing and sunbathing. This place is a well-known destination among surfing enthusiasts: the long sandy beach with its lack of dangerous rocks or coral makes the waves Read More...
Kuta Sea Turtle Conservation Site
A special highlight on the shores of Kuta Beach, and practically beside the prominent Balawista Lifeguard tower and headquarters, is a sea turtle hatchery and educational facility known as Kuta Beach Sea Turtle Conservation. Set out with the main purpose to protect sea turtles and boost their numbers, the site has released over tens of thousands of hatchlings over the years. The conservation centre usually gears up for breeding season mid-year around the months of June and July, when thousands of turtle eggs hatch on temporary sites around the sands of Kuta. A joint effort with the Sea Turtle Society, they also set out to involve local communities and visitors to participate in their efforts and exciting releases. Established in 2002, the conservation site features a large eye-catching sea turtle statue that is great for unusual photo mementos. Drop in with the kids and check out their approximate release schedules to partake in the next ‘baby turtle race’.

Temples in Kuta Beach
Kuta does not have a popular main temple to visit, but sprinkled along the main road you can find regular temples worth a peek at during your holiday here. Positioned on Jalan Pantai Kuta you’ll find Pura Batu Bolong; on Kuta Sidewalk is Pura Penataran; and on Kuta Beach a few metres east from the main gate is Pura Kalangan Majelangu. Every morning and late afternoon right after sunset, the Balinese who live in the neighbourhood come here to pray and present offerings.
The temple is busy only on special occasions during holy days and ceremonies such as Melasti: three or four days prior to Nyepi (the day of silence that falls on Bali’s Lunar New Year), the Balinese gather to send prayers and offerings to Sanghyang Widhi/Vishnu-Devas-Bataras on the beach to respect them as the owners of the land and sea.

Vihara Dharmayana Kuta temple stands majestically as one of the very few cultural landmarks Hidden amid Kuta’s traffic frenzy and surfing paradise glamour. This age-old Chinese Buddhist temple was one of the various Buddhist sites in Bali visited by Tibet’s 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, on his international tour in 1982 so it certainly has pedigree.
Located only a kilometre east from Kuta’s main coastal strip, Vihara Dharmayana Kuta is often referred to by the locals as ‘Kongco Leeng Gwan Kuta’, or simply ‘Kongco Kuta’. Slightly inconspicuous due to its location on a corner of Jalan Blambangan, a one-way route usually congested with traffic, the temple’s bright red walls and murals Read More...
