Kuta is often seen as Seminyak’s less popular sister. In its heyday before Covid hit, this is an area bustling with vibrant nightlife, hipster cafes and delicious local food.

Now, as the rowdy crowd moves to Canggu, Kuta is slightly quieter, perfect for those who want to stay by some of Bali’s best beaches – while still enjoying the returning nightlife and hipster cafes.

Surfers will definitely love this beach town too!
