Formerly a sleepy fishing village, the beach resort town of Kuta now represents one of Indonesia's most popular tourist destinations.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Blue Point Beach and Geger Beach Nusa Dua Bali. You'll get in some beach time at Kuta Beach - Bali and Karma Beach Bali. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Balangan Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and wander the streets of Kuta Square.

To see reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Kuta trip itinerary planning website.

Melbourne, Australia to Kuta is an approximately 6- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight.
