Make your Balinese dreams come true in South Kuta

Handily located around 20 minutes by car from Ngurah Rai International Airport, South Kuta is a popular choice for visitors who want easy access to Bali's busiest beach resort, but who don't want to stay right in the thick of frenetic central Kuta. South Kuta, otherwise known as Tuban, boasts a soft, sandy beach, ideal for lazy days of sun-worshipping and splashing around. Warmly welcoming restaurants serve everything from flavoursome Indonesian staples like spicy beef rendang, to authentic Italian wood-fired pizza. Throw into the mix sleek shopping malls and bustling beachfront bars, and you've got all the ingredients for a fun-packed tropical getaway. And with an eclectic array of South Kuta holiday rentals to choose from, you can tailor every aspect of your trip to your particular requirements.

Things to do

Aquatic adventures in South Kuta

Within easy reach of your South Kuta holiday rental, you'll find a wealth of enticing attractions. For a day of wet and wild fun in the sun, head to Waterbom Bali. At this garishly colourful water park you can race down adrenaline-pumping big drop slides and disorienting flumes, float at a leisurely pace down a shimmering lazy river or quaff cocktails by a swim-up bar. If you're visiting between April and October, a visit to the Bali Sea Turtle Society is a must. Here you can savour the unique experience of releasing a newly-hatched baby turtle into the ocean, whilst learning all about the local effort to conserve these magnificent endangered creatures.


Surf's up in South Kuta

South Kuta's expansive beach, gently-crashing waves and lack of dangerous rocks make it an ideal spot for budding surfers. Even if you're a total beginner, friendly local teachers will have you up on your feet in no time at all. But if that sounds too much like hard work, you can try your hand at bodyboarding, which is just as thrilling but altogether easier to master. If you need a break from the sun, head to one of Kuta's blissfully air-conditioned shopping malls, where you can browse dazzling designer fashion boutiques, feast on international fast food or catch a film in a state-of-the-art multiplex.


A tantalising taste of the tropics

Bali's enviable tropical climate ensures that South Kuta holiday rentals are in high demand throughout much of the year. The dry season of April to September is the optimum time to visit. At this time of year, rainfall is minimal, skies are sunny and cloud-free, and humidity is rarely too intense. December and January constitute the height of the wet season, but even during these months, the rain tends to fall in short, intense showers, so you can still usually bank on plenty of beach time.

Natural features

Soak up Bali's untamed side

South Kuta is among Bali's more developed, traveller-focused regions, but you'll find a wealth of natural spectacle within easy reach. A short boat ride away lies the gloriously unspoilt island of Nusa Penida, famed for its breathtaking Kelingking beach, a seductive sprawl of soft, white sand and turquoise water, overlooked by surreal rock formations thought by many to look like a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The island is also a hotspot for scuba diving, surrounded as it is by thriving coral reefs, where you can marvel at other-worldly manta rays and multi-hued tropical fish.
