basically the beaches at kuta, seminyak kegian jimbaran, tuban are on the same stretch. these areas are all located together. it is here on this side of the island that there are beautiful sunsets and the beaches have surfing waves and there are patrolled areas.

nusa dua and sanur areas are on the other side of bali, the beaches are calm water (unless you go out to the reef with a surfboard. the sun rises on this side of the island.

all these areas have beach front hotels so it depends on what other things you want.

eg legian seminyak etc are much busier than say sanur. both areas have great restaurants and shops. sanur does not have as much night life but is more of a relaxed village atmosphere.

nusa dua is a purpose built tourist area and more expensive and not much to walk to.

if you provide a budget then hotels can be recommended. mean while take a look at the following to give you an idea of a few places

bali hyatt, puri santrian, griya santrian and mercure at sanur.

santika at tuban

kumala pantai at legian

grand hyatt at nusa dua.

Here is my take on best Bali beaches:

1. Nusa Dua from Grand Hyatt to Amannusa beach area

2. Jimbaran from Four Seasons to Jimbaran Puri Bali Hotel

3. Nusa Dua from Melia Hotel to Conrad

3. Seminyak area

4. Sanur

Nusa Dua Hyatt and Jimbaran have clean white sand, clear blue water, and beautiful view. Nusa Dua in particular has crystal blue water and waves are blocked by an offshore reef.

Nusa Dua Melia to Conrad area and Sanur are diminished by stone breakwaters that have been built into the water. Seminyak is not alway clean, the sand is not pure white, and the water can be rough.

Check for yourself and enjoy!

i would suggest the ALAM KULKUL hotel, have just booked it for mid april. havent been yet, but the locations and reviews sound quite good. it is in Kuta, and a ten minute walk to all the action. beach front as well.

hi jungalman, the post you have kindly answered is over 12 months old (ie 17th march 2008) and it is too late to recommend a hotel:)
