“Dirty & over crowded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Kuta Beach is now sooo dirty & so crowded with domestic tourist.
If you are looking for a nicer beach, Nusa Dua or Seminyak will be a better choices.

“You know quickly that you are in a tourist area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

A nice place on a sunny day for a surf, a few Bintang beers on the beach or in a nearby cafe, for sunbathing, a massage or tattoo.

I do not look like a local so it seemed there were a lot of sales people, or people trying to sell me anything they had. Ignoring them made them disappear soon enough.

“Dirrttttyyyyyy....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Too many garbage in the sea, smelly. Just spend your time walking in the sand - a little bit far from the water.

“Nice beach but lots of people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The beach is huge and there is a lot to do. However, there is also a lot of people there. Its not that bad though and is worth doing. But if your looking for a secluded beach, this is not the place. It is a great place to people watch. The vendors are not bad anymore and nobody bothered me at all trying to sell me stuff.
