Cities in Bali You Must See, travel and home, travelandhome, beach, honeymoon

1. Kuta

If you’re looking for a place to kick back, catch some waves, and enjoy the Bali beach life, Kuta is the spot to be!

What is Kuta known for?

Kuta Beach is known for its awesome waves, drawing surfers from all over the world.

Where is Kuta?

Kuta is a lively beach resort area in Bali, Indonesia. It’s on the southern coast of the island, about a 15-minute drive south from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Things to do in Kuta

  • Nightly stage performances in dazzling Balinese dance costumes at the Kuta Theater is an experience not to be missed.
  • The art market is the opportunity to do souvenir shopping. Salespeople are rather pushy. In other words, you may have to count to ten a few times to keep your composure. 
  • Take a walk on the beach.
  • Visit the ancient Buddist temple, Vihara Dharmayana. Dress appropriately (no shorts) and switch off your camera in the prayer room, or relics.
  • For the brave at heart, go bungy jumping. 
  • Sea turtle center

2. Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua is the perfect destination if you are looking for a more tranquil and luxurious Bali experience. Plus, if you’re into water sports like snorkeling or diving, you’ll find some incredible spots to explore beneath the waves. So, if you’re dreaming of a slice of paradise with a touch of luxury, Nusa Dua is the place to be!

What is Nusa Dua known for?

Nusa Dua is famous for its upscale vibe, with plenty of high-end hotels, spas, and golf courses to indulge in.

Where is Nusa Dua

Nusa Dua is another fantastic spot in Bali, just a stone’s throw away from Kuta. It’s located on the southeastern coast of the island, around a 30-minute drive south of Ngurah Rai International Airport. Picture this: pristine white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters, and luxurious resorts dotting the coastline.

3. Ubud

Ubud is this charming little town nestled in the heart of Bali, Indonesia. Picture lush greenery all around, with rice paddies spread out like patchwork quilts, and temples peeking out from amidst the foliage. It’s like a serene oasis amidst all the hustle and bustle of Bali.

What is Ubud known for?

Ubud isn’t your typical beach destination; it’s more about cultural experiences, wellness retreats, and immersing yourself in Bali’s rich heritage. Think yoga studios, art galleries, traditional dance performances, and markets filled with beautiful handicrafts.

Ubud Bali
Ubud is the cultural capital of Bali with many art galleries and museums to explore amongst the many ancient temples and majestic royal palaces, green hillsides and rice terraces.

Where is Ubud

If you’re looking for Ubud on a map, it sits smack dab in the center of the island, surrounded by picturesque landscapes. You’ll find it about an hour’s drive north of the bustling beach town of Kuta, and roughly an hour and a half northeast of the island’s capital city, Denpasar.

Things to do in Ubud

So if you’re in Bali and craving a break from the beach vibes, hop on over to Ubud for a healthy dose of tranquility and culture. You won’t regret it!
