The popular Kuta Beach, overlooking the Straits of Bali, attracts foreign and local watersport enthusiasts and sun worshipers. Throngs flock to this 1.5-kilometer stretch on weekends. The period April to September/October promises favorable reef and beach breaks, enabling surfers to take to the waves. Amateurs should stick to the milder beach breaks for safety reasons. You can also swim here—make sure you do so only within the designated area—or just join the carefree sunbathers. Wandering hawkers and guides offer their wares and services, while others provide a relaxing massage for a reasonable fee.
