Kuta is a town in southern Bali, Indonesia.
A former fishing village, it was one of the first towns on Bali to
see substantial tourist development, and as a beach resort remains
one of Indonesia's major tourist destinations.
It is known internationally for its long sandy beach, varied accommodation,
many restaurants and bars, and substantial Australian population.
It is located near Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport.
Kuta is now the center of an extensive tourist-oriented urban area that merges
into the neighboring towns.
Legian, to the north, is the commercial hub of Kuta and the site of many
restaurants and entertainment spots.
Most of the area's big beachfront hotels are in the southern section of Tuban.
Legian and Seminyak are northern extensions of Kuta along Jl. Legian and Jl. Basangkasa.
They are somewhat quieter suburbs with cottage-style accommodations,
where many of the expat crowd live.
Also to the north are Petitenget, Berawa, Canggu, and Seseh -
new and quieter continuations of Kuta's beach.
They are easy to reach through Abian Timbul or Denpasar and Kerobokan.
Several large hotels are located in this area: the Oberoi Bali, Hard Rock Hotel Bali,
the Intan Bali Village, the Legian in Petitenget, the Dewata Beach and the
Bali Sani Suites in Berawa.
To the south, Kuta Beach extends beyond the airport into Jimbaran.
Other nearby towns and villages include Seseh (6.4 nm), Denpasar (4.5 nm),
Ujung (1.8 nm), Pesanggaran (2.0 nm), Kedunganan (2.9 nm) and Tuban (1.0 nm).
The Balinese Provincial Government have taken the view that the preservation
of the Balinese culture, natural resources and wildlife are of primary importance
in the development of the island.
To this end they have limited tourist development to the peninsula on the
extreme southern aspect of the island; Kuta beach is on the western side of
this peninsula and Sanur is on the east.
To the north of the peninsula no new tourist development is supposedly permitted.
