Kuta is known internationally for its long sandy beach, varied accommodation, many restaurants and bars, and many renowned surfers who visit from Australia. It is located near Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport. Kuta is more than just a great beach. Kuta is the activity hub and entertainment playground of Bali, located just minutes drive south of the capital Denpasar. The area known as 'Kuta' can be roughly divided into four areas: Seminyak, Kuta, Legian and Tuban. Kuta is a thriving tourist resort, popular mainly among the younger travelers as well as tourists from Asia. Kuta, in addition to being the No. 1 Sunset Site in Bali with its spectacular sunsets, is also the centre of night life activities in Southern Bali and a shopping mecca, with its lines of shops, boutiques, and galleries. Kuta is still paradise for those who love sea, sun and sand.
Stretching north from Kuta, Legian offers the same easy access to shops and bars but a slightly more relaxed and less chaotic feeling. It is a low-key area where you can still get the low prices of Kuta without some of the hassle. The northern area of Legian bordering Seminyak offers a bit of an escape from the crowds and is also a popular surf beach.Most of the popular Legian hotels are on or close to the beach. The whole of Legian is no bigger than a few blocks in a large city, but despite its small size, this area has a very high profile with visitors due to the lovely beach frontage, and proliferation of mid-market hotels.
Seminyak is residential area on the west coast of Bali just north of Kuta and Legian. This area is very popular with resident expatriates and land and accommodation prices are amongst the highest in Bali. Plenty of luxury spas and hotels abound. Owing to its high density of high-end shopping, combined with the clustering of many fine eating establishments, it has rapidly become one of the most well known tourist areas on this island. Seminyak, only a 15 minute drive from Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport, Seminyak is quiet and pleasant, attracting return visitors seeking more peace and seclusion second time around. The further north you go the classier the hotels get, with a particularly exclusive enclave now occupying the fine stretch of shoreline near Pura Petitenget, off Jalan Laksamana. A combination of beautiful beaches, sunsets and rice fields make Seminyak area a perfect place for relaxation. Lifestyle here is peaceful.
This is the big city, the centre of all government offices and the capital city of Bali. Denpasar used to be the base of the Badung kingdom, and then it became the center for the Bali government in 1958. Denpasar has got some major tourism spots such as the remains of ancient buildings made in the style of Balinese architecture. Denpasar is one of Indonesia´s most fully integrated and tolerant cities, the city has few charms, other than those quiet back alleyways where people are quite friendly. The most important government offices are located in a tree-shaded administrative complex of handsome reddish brick and grey stone. Industry is low-tech and non-polluting. Denpasar is actually best at night, when it´s not so hot and the individual kampung resume their normal rhythms. It seems the whole population is either directly or indirectly involved in the tourist industry, and you can easily engage people in conversation.
Sanur is Bali's oldest upscale resort area and is a mature beach-side town. Despite the abundance of restaurants and accommodation, it has a quiet and relaxed feel to it. In general terms, it is more expensive than Kuta but cheaper than Seminyak. Sanur tends to appeal most to middle-aged and older families, especially Europeans. Sanur Beach is long and has white sand. Sanur can be divided in to 4 areas the north, Pantai, central and south. As Sanur was the post independence choice of most Dutch expatriots, it also has a slightly more cultural feeling than many of the other southern beach resort areas. Also, unlike Kuta / Legian, there are a large number of hotels that are actually on the beach (not separated from it by a road). Although there are a number of bars, it is not a young person entertainment area like Kuta. Sanur tends to attract more family groups.
