Destination guide

South Kuta is a jewel of Bali

First-time visitors to the fabled Isle of the Gods will likely pass through South Kuta. It's just a whisker from the airport and one of the names that's on everyone's lips. The reasons? Well, there are its hidden coves of sparkling sand. There are its sculpted surf swells that lick resplendent coral reefs. And there are its good-feeling vibes, balancing the wild nightlife of Kuta proper with bamboo shacks and surfer restaurants. South Kuta vacation rentals range from the luxurious to the simple, each offering a pad near beautiful beaches and shimmering seas.

Things to do

South Kuta is a gateway to temples

If you can pull yourself away from the poolside, the beach and the bars for a day, you'll find that South Kuta vacation rentals are the perfect base for hitting some of Bali's fabled temples. The Uluwatu Temple is really near. You should go there in the evening to watch the goosebump-inducing Kecak Fire Dance. Northwards into the jungles is Ubud. That's home to the 9th-century Goa Gajah shrine, carved into the rock. Famous Tanah Lot is also close, studding the sea on its very own island to the north-west.

Activities

South Kuta is for good vibes only

Nowhere is the good-vibe lifestyle of Bali more evident than in South Kuta. You can spend your days wallowing on wide beachfronts sipping ice-cold brews. You can chat to backpackers and 60-somethings alike in the bamboo seaside bars, watching a breathtaking sunset over the Bali Sea. You can wax down the surfboard and learn to ride the waves with expert Indonesian rip curlers. South Kuta vacation rentals are also a great base for exploring the island. Excursions to mystical Ubud and the clifftop temples of Bukit can easily join the itinerary.

Weather

Seeking the South Kuta sun

Forever-tropical Bali blesses Kuta with year-round warmth. As it's a smidgen south of the equator, the town enjoys steady temperatures in the 80s from December to December. The only noticeable change is in rainfall. That peaks between November and March, bringing downpours and rougher seas along the South Kuta beaches. The upshot is that the period from May to August is better if you're booking those South Kuta vacation rentals to laze on the sands and soak up the Indonesian rays.

Natural features

South Kuta's sand and jungle

It's the sea and the sand that keep travelers flocking to South Kuta year on year. The area is fringed by Bali's trademark cliff-backed bays and coral reefs. They host surfers and divers and snorkelers, all eager to meet manta rays and turtles, or to conquer some of the world-class rollers that crash against the shore. If you venture northwards into the heart of the island, you can also unearth some of Bali's iconic jungle. A trip to Ubud is recommended, where vine-clad temples hide in the forests and macaques swing back and forth.
