Shopping in Kuta has evolved in the recent decade, starting off from humble beginnings with a few art studios and local stalls being the main attractions. Now, you can find a handful of great malls lining the main streets, such as the grand Discovery Shopping Mall right across from Waterbom Bali, and the even bigger Kuta Beachwalk on the main beach drive of Jalan Pantai Kuta, which offers a great shopping, dining and entertainment spot for the whole family.
