Golf, water park, sunset watching and partying. Here’s Vilondo’s suggestion to 10 things to do in Kuta.
1. Splash in Waterbom waterpark
Packed with water rides, Waterbom water park is good fun for kids and adults alike. The Race track and Climax are recommended for the thrill seekers, while the less adventurous will enjoy a ride down Lazy River.
2. A round of Golf at the New Kuta Golf course
The New Kuta championship golf course is among Asia’s most challenging. The course is perched above limestone cliffs leading down to the Indian Oceans ensuring spectacular views as you swing your way through the 18 holes.
3. Party in Legian street
Kuta is Bali’s no. 1 party town. The party starts at around sunset at the bars and moves on to the clubs a few hours later. The highest concentration of bars and clubs you’ll find Legian street. Just follow the crowds and the bass – you can’t miss it.
4. Renew yourself with a spa and massage treatment
After a night out, there is no better way to renew yourself than with massage and spa treatment. There are plenty of options in Kuta, but quality and price varies, so be sure to take a look inside before you choose.
5. Surfing the Kuta waves
One of Kuta’s major attractions is the great waves at Kuta beach, drawing surfers from all over the world. If you haven’t brought your own board, there are plenty of places where you can rent one. A good place for beginners is the Halfway Kuta break, while experienced surfers should hit the waves off Legian.
