Sadly this poorly maintained beach is unmanaged by local authorities and the water and sand is full of wrappers, butts and bottles. It is Kuta's most valuable asset and it is a great shame.

Clean water, great for surf, crowded, Clear water. Many restaurants and convenience stores nearby.
Some gorgeous views along the way especially a bar with surf practice shows.

If you are in for the purpose of having a good sun tan, that's fine. But otherwise, I wouldn't come to this beach. Crowded, and too near to the road to have that tranquil and serene effect if you are looking for it.

Clean beach- all activities available- beach deck chairs no longer exist- plenty of vendors selling everything- shops- bars close by- try the surf riding park located on street at Kata Beach.= lots of fun.

This is perhaps as close to hell as I ever want to get. The beach is crowded with a majority of one race if people many of whom are drunk in the middle of the day. Consequently they have consideration for anyone else. This complimented by noisy jet skis out in the water and hawkers who harass you all the time. Avoid.
