Protected by Kuta reef, this narrow strip offers upmarket beachfront hotels with some excellent restaurants, and is close to Kuta Square for a spot of retail therapy.
This area is currently undergoing a makeover and a program to replace the eroded beach is due to begin soon. Kuta, South and Central Legian encompass the one-way system that extends from The Kuta Beach Hotel to The Legian Beach Hotel on Melasti Street. A broad expanse of beachfronts, this busy tourist area is separated from the beach by Jalan Pantai (Beach Rd) and boasts excellent body surfing, boogie boarding and surfing. There are plenty of noisy bars and backpacker accommodation at the Kuta end with the area getting quieter as it gets towards Melasti Street.
