Witte stranden, groene bergen en zwarte magie
Bali heeft parken met vogels, vleermuizen en apen, je kunt een tocht maken op de rug van een olifant of de dolfijnen opzoeken. Achter de stranden ligt het groene binnenland met traditionele dorpen, rijstvelden, regenwoud, vulkanen en watervallen. Het ene dorp is bekend vanwege de goud- en zilversmeden, het andere vanwege het houtsnijwerk. Ook tref je nog rondreizende medicijnmannen aan.
Kuta Beach, Bali Indonesia
Once a lonely little village on the road from Denpasar to Bukit Peninsula, Kuta is now the tourist Mecca of Bali, popular mainly among the young and adventurous. Kuta beach is one of the first favorite beaches discovered by tourist. Coconut trees line the sand beach as far as the eyes can see towards the north stopped by the runway of Denpasar's airport far in the west. The sunset in Kuta is most breathtaking. On the south, the beach is fenced by the airport's runway, which gives the visitors a breathtaking landing experience.
Kuta Beach bustles with tourists' vendors and locals. It's the most popular beach in Bali and the island's number one party zone. The beach stretches as far north as the eyes can see. As short walk away north, the waves will invite to surfing. Rapid development and an influx of visitors haven't kept the surfers away and Kuta still remains one of Bali's best surfing beaches and a great place to enjoy a beach lifestyle.
At night, Kuta is alive with night life. Western influences create discotheques, dance clubs, and pubs. Gastronomical demands inspire a multitude of restaurants, serving traditional Indonesian and Balinese food to various ethnic meals from Japan, Switzerland, etc. As if these were not enough, various Balinese dance performances are staged in Kuta every night. One of the best Kecak performances is found in Kuta.
