Kuta Beach was one of the nicest beaches in the past, but anno 2020 it is really not more than an average beach. Where the sunset is beautiful to watch here, the beach is packed with plastic, every 2 minutes or so you will get bothered by a salesman, which can be really annoying, the sea/ocean is very rough so you can forget a relax swim. Every 10 seconds there are medium high waves coming your way. There are a lot of better alternatives for this beach in Bali.

Kuta Beach is very hectic. I used to have a long stroll here. Nice for people watching.

It is crowded with tourists, there are those who just want to sit and drink all day long.

I did find the beach was relatively clean, there were people enjoying the surf or just messing around in the water.

I preferred to walk and go to another more quieter part of beach near our hotel.

It is another good beach to watch the sunset.

Pleasant surprise! Golden sand, very clean, the waves are not too high, so you can actually swim in between the big waves, but also high enough for beginners in surfing.
Sunbeds are available, but you need to pay by hour (unlike Canggu, where the same amount of money would reserve you a sunbed for a whole day).
The most disturbing thing though was that there are too many people trying to sell you something, it was really annoying sometimes.

Usually in rainy season (Dec/Jan/Feb) I would tell you to skip kuta/legian/seminyak beach. With the rains and the currents all sorts of rubbish is pushed from the sea and farther inland to the beachfronts and despite all of the local efforts it is not enough to clean the mountains of rubbish washed there every day.

But this January 2020, the rainy season is late and hasn’t quite started yet, so the beaches are looking as magnificent as it is possible for an asian country.

The sunsets are always awesome and the popular beach attracts loads of locals and other “local” Indonesian/Asians country guests that lap up the atmosphere and are particularly jolly (without alcohol) and often want to have pictures taken with friendly looking tourists particularly families with children.

We walk along the beach even if when there is rubbish there but it is infinitely more pleasant when its clean(ish).

My husband and I spent 8 days in Kuta, Bali and stayed at a hotel opposite Kuta Beach (over the road). We had the best sunset views of Kuta Beach and water the warmest we've ever experienced (we travelled quite a lot and visited many countries but this beach wins hands down - though not the cleanest😊)! Don't be over friendly with the people walking up to you when you try to relax selling things because they can be a bit of a nuisance and spoil the atmosphere... Be polite but make them understand you're need a bit of time to yourself or you'll be inundated with sellers😅. The area around Kuta Beach is vibrant, busy and awesome🎉. We will definitely return 👍🎉

The beach is sandy, makes it the great place to learn surfing. The bike parking area near the entrance is for a fee, so many park just beside the street till the Beachwalk mall or on the beach itself.

Unfortunately it has also disadvantages. One of them are people constantly and continuously offering their products and services. It is just too many of them easily may make you tired and wanna escape the place.

It is dirty, but cleaner thanKedonganan beach. Plus, this beach may give you the most unsafe feeling right in the beginning. Too many ppl offering drugs at the entrance listing some of the names I haven’t even heard about. Hope this part will change one day.

Having visited Kuta for the last 4 years I have to say this was the cleanest I have seen the beach.
During my month long stay there were days when quite a bit of rubbish was washing up but it appears to cleaned up with a tractor daily.
Quite busy with locals trying to sell anything from cold drinks to blowpipes but no real problem. Great for learning to surf and on good days suitable for the more experienced surfer. Fantastic sunsets which is the busiest time of day on the beach, a must see event.

We enjoyed the beach a lot,even though it's really hot and you get tanned or sun-burnt even under an umbrella.
The ocean is amazing and the water is almost hot at shore.
The sunset is like an amazing painting and would definitely recommend catching one.

I loved being able to sit in a chair on the sand, sipping a Bintang and watching the sunset. In 40 minutes, probably approached 10 times. Not aggressive, but a couple are persistent. One woman stuck her fingers in my ear offering to trim the hair. I declined.
Some rubbish on the beach and a couple of logs washing up. Plenty of people walking with dogs and one took a dump. Not good (dog not person, but no clean up).

Sunrise awesome and cool seeing surfers catching excellent waves. Love the palm trees. Shame it can’t be a little cleaner.

This is the most popular beach in the area and does have some things going for it – for example the Sun sets. For these, get yourself down around 6 pm and grab a couple of cold beers from there very many vendors. These guys are great fun who seem to teach surfing in the day and serve Bintang at night.

It will be the coldest beer you get in Bali as they have them in iceboxes.

Other than that, it gets very busy and there is an awful lot happening down there. Photos with snakes, a rabbit running around and musicians of little talent are just a few of the things you can expect to see.

Unfortunately, it is very dirty by the sea line. I know they are doing their best to try and keep it clean but it look like a war zone at times when we were there.

Needs to be better.
