Things to do in Kuta
Despite it’s popularity Kuta has few sights or activities.
- Surfing is the primary activity. The waves are great, although crowded in high season (May – September). The wet season (Oct – April) sees high winds, but there are still some, sometimes messy, waves to be had.
- The temple of Ulu Watu is a short drive away. The temple is perched on the cliff edge, with the crashing waves below. Buy bananas there to feed the fairly friendly monkeys. It’s a good place to see th Kecak dance, but Ubud is better. Hire a moped or ask at travel agents about car (and driver) rental.
