Destination guide

A southern spot that's an escape from chaotic Kuta

So you want to experience Bali's blissful beaches and cultural treasures, but avoid the chaos of Kuta? South Kuta vacation rentals are just the ticket. This area occupies a southern peninsula that looks like the foot of the island, just a few kilometres south of Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali. It's mellower than its neighbouring village to the north, Kuta, which can be a hotbed of rowdy crowds on the beach and in the bars. South Kuta still has bustling bars and cafes, terrific surfing and swimming and plenty of attractions where you can soak up Indonesian culture.

Things to do

A little bit of culture and whimsy and a whole lotta fun

The highlight of South Kuta is Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, which features Hindu sculptures and dance ceremonies. If you don't mind crowds, check out Waterbom Bali, a popular water park with awesome slides and a swim-up bar. Just a few clicks from there is the whimsical Upside World venue, the Mal Bali Galeria shopping centre and the famous-but-busy Kuta Beach. The ancient Uluwatu Temple is perched on a cliff in South Kuta, offering sweeping views and traditional ceremonies. And for those needing tee time, you can hit the greens at Bali National Golf Club.

Activities

South Kuta's such a Dreamland there's a beach with the name

This is Bali, so of course there are at least a dozen epic beaches you can while away the hours upon in your swimmers and thongs. Many of these are right in South Kuta, like Bingin Beach and Suluban Uluwatu Beach. And who wouldn't want to visit a place called Pantai Dreamland Beach? These beaches range from soft sugary sand and calm waters to jagged cliffs and gnarly breakers. And while you're here, make it a priority to indulge in some delectable cuisine like Ikan bakar (grilled fish) and Sate lembat (seasoned meat on a stick).

Weather

If you're hot for the tropics, South Kuta brings the heat

Millions of travellers descend upon Bali to bask in its warm and tropical weather that averages in the upper 20s all year. The Bali Sea is like a warm bath as well, no matter what time of year you're booking South Kuta vacation rentals. If you're here to surf, the best waves are from May to September. Since these months are typically dry, it's also a popular time for visitors. It's most likely to rain between November and March, but the rains last hours rather than days.

Natural highlights

With many feathered friends, Bali's truly for the birders

South Kuta vacation rentals are a paradise for those craving a tropical setting. Birdwatchers will be in a fine-feathered frenzy over Bali's hundreds of tropical birds, and if you spot the rare Bali Myna bird, you get bragging rights for life. Of course you can see loads of Macaque monkeys at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. And Bali beneath the water is a magical world of tropical fish, vivid corals, giant manta rays, reef sharks and sea turtles, so be sure to carve out time for snorkelling, scuba diving or both.
